FAQ's - Modern Kitchen Design | European Kitchen Sydney


What is an average cost of a new kitchen?

In general our kitchens start from around $17,000, but the main factors are the size of the kitchen and materials used. You will also need to take into account the cost of a bench top, splash back, appliances and trades which will add to an overall cost of the entire kitchen renovation..

How long does it take to install a kitchen?

Once your old kitchen is removed, you will need to allow 1-2 days to prep the walls and the floors. At the same time electrical and plumbing works might take place to meet new design requirements, if any. Depending on the size of your new kitchen, installation of cabinets will take another 1-2 days. Then you will need to allow approximately 10 days for bench top and splash back manufacture and installation. Any electrical and plumbing connections and any finishing touches should be complete in the next few days and your kitchen is ready to use!
