Perth’s most experienced Kitchen Renovations
Redoing your kitchen can be both necessary and enjoyable. Think about how often you use your kitchen – for food preparation, for entertainment, for gatherings of family and friends. Because many of us use our kitchens so much, it only follows that this is a room in the house that many want to take pleasure in.
What’s more, a beautiful and functional kitchen will only serve to increase the resale value of your house. Think about when you are buying or renting – the kitchen is one of the first things you look at in judging your dream home! So, whether you are looking to up your property value or just wanting to enjoy your space even more, custom kitchen renovations are the way to go. Keep reading for an all-you-need-to-know guide on custom kitchens, how to go about them, and what important things there are to consider.

Your Guide to Custom Kitchen Renovations
Think about the must-haves
The first step when renovating your kitchen is to think about your must-haves. Ask yourself what the essentials are. Of course, these essentials will differ from household to household. So, on top of this, you may also ask yourself what kind of functions you and your family cannot go without.
Functionality and the clever use of the space you have to work with is key in this regard. Your new kitchen and joinery should all serve a purpose that is tailored to the needs that you (or a buyer) may have. Keeping the must-haves in mind, you can really design and plan the perfect kitchen! Consider visiting a kitchen showroom to generate a checklist of all these must-have items for your kitchen renovation.
Set the budget for your new kitchen
Another thing you need to do is set your budget. It’s all very well and good to have a dream kitchen design in mind, but you need to work according to what you can afford and are willing to pay. Setting a budget for yourself is crucial to avoid any nasty surprises after you’ve started renovating.
Whether you are remodelling independently or making use of a contractor, your budget must be one of the first things you consider. You may even want to get a quote for your dream kitchen from a renovation business with experience and work from there! Keep thinking about your practical must-haves when setting this budget – you may find that some needs far outweigh others.
Try to set a budget with a little bit of wiggle room and do as much research as possible into the costs of high-quality appliances and new materials before even attempting to begin your kitchen renovation. This kind of planning can really help you out in the long run.
Bring in the renovation professionals
Because must-haves and budgets are so vital, it may be a good idea to bring in the people who know exactly what they’re doing. Whether you are looking for help in your design, setting your budget, or a totally hands-off experience, there is a business out there for you!
You may also consider working closely with the professional team you hire to install your kitchen and joinery in order to get the very best results. Either way, a professional can truly help you to achieve your dream kitchen and to up the value of your home. Obtaining a quote at the start is a great way to see what you can and can’t afford in terms of both professional assistance as well as the overall result.
Don’t get discouraged if your kitchen design doesn’t end up being exactly the way you pictured it either. You may well find that a professional’s touch will end up producing a fantastic, high-quality result for your new kitchen.
Custom design time
Time is also a huge factor when it comes to kitchen remodelling. You have to think about the time it will take to do everything: researching, planning, designing, and executing. As such, a schedule is also extremely important.
Set aside certain amounts of time for each stage of the process and try not to waver too much from this plan. This is especially significant in the case of custom kitchen renovations, as your personal input and design preferences will affect the outcome and time it takes to implement each stage.
Again, thinking about the rest of the aspects in this guide (must-haves, budgets, and assistance from a professional) will help you to manage your time effectively and execute your new kitchen design perfectly. Remember, this is a renovation of your home and each stage should be tailored to meet your needs and desires to the best of your contractor’s ability.
Considerations with a Kitchen Renovation
The top things to look for in the perfect kitchen are functionality and accessibility, layout, and, more often than not, aesthetics.
Functionality and Accessibility
Remember to keep things like the functionality of plumbing points and electrical outlets in mind. Where is the best place to install these? How will the rest of your custom-made kitchen be set out accordingly and in an easy-to-access fashion? How will cabinets and benchtops serve to work alongside your appliances?
Functionality and accessibility are key. You will always enjoy a room more if it serves its purpose perfectly and allows you to move with ease and comfort.
This brings us to the layout of the room, and the space you have to work with. The dream kitchen you have in mind may not work with the way that the room is set out, and you may have to tweak the design layout to fit in with it. This may be the very reason you are opting to renovate your kitchen in the first place!
Remember that being realistic about your space will allow for a layout that works well to follow suit. For example, you may want ample cabinet space. Placing these cabinets beneath or above your benchtops can help to free up some room and, ultimately, improve upon the layout of your new kitchen installation.
While functionality and management of space are indeed key, nobody wants a kitchen that doesn’t make them feel at home! We often entertain in our kitchens, gather in them, or spend large amounts of time in them. As such, many of us want to make sure that our kitchens and joinery are as beautiful as they are practical.
Joinery, flooring, lighting, and choice of appliances and materials all make up the aesthetics of a kitchen. It is essential to consider these things in line with the above two considerations so that your newly renovated, custom-made kitchen really does become the whole package: something beautifully designed while perfectly functional.

We have worked with Shelley from Kitchen Capital twice in the past 18 months and we couldn’t be happier with the process and the results
Shelley provides an exceptional level of service and is a very talented designer who is equally focused on the aesthetics and the functionality of the spaces she designs. We would highly recommend Shelley and Kitchen Capital to anyone who wants a beautiful and highly practical kitchen.
Kitchen Capital have been fantastic in making our coolrooms look even more cool!
Sue, Shelley and the team at Kitchen Capital have been fantastic in making our coolrooms look even more cool! Great service and pleasure to do with business. Happy to refer other clients to Sue Jansen and her team.
The team at Kitchen Capital WA are the most professional and approachable kitchen & bathroom designers we have ever had the pleasure of working with
We provide Kitchen Capital with stone bench tops for their work & their designs make our stone tops look magnificent! Quite simply, Kitchen Capital create beautiful kitchens, with beautiful detail, all within a completely structured time frame from start to finish; they are a joy to deal with & we could not recommend them more highly.
A great all round service
Shelley really worked hard to get to know our style, what we were looking for in our new kitchen and how to make the design a reality. She listened to our suggestions and offered her own – just the kind of dialogue you need as some of our ideas worked and others did not. She had practical solutions to our needs and didn’t just sell us the expensive items – although a few little luxuries crept in and they have been brilliant too. The actual build ran to schedule and the trades people were efficient and professional. No surprise costs at the end. Small problems dealt with as they occurred. I would certainly recommend Shelley as a design consultant.
Shelley did a great job accommodating my specific high maintenance personality, standards, taste and style
She also gave her experienced advice when I had gone off track and found myself saying “you were right Shelley, I should have listened to you from the start”! Her installation crew (cabinets and tilers) did a great job and had good workmanship and attention to detail. They also came back to help sort some teething problems which were all sorted quickly and to a high standard. I used my own plumbers and electricians for this project. There was a little bit of confusion over a few items. In hindsight I regret not using Kitchen Capital WA’s contacts/tradesman as all the others were so good and I reckon some of the installation may have gone a little smoother but still a great final.
Kitchen Capital helped us with a major kitchen reno
From our initial consultation until the last tradie walked out the door on the final day, we experienced nothing but high quality and professional support. Most importantly, we’re very pleased with the result.
I couldn’t be happier with Kitchen Capital
Nicole designed a gorgeous kitchen which exceeded my expectations. All of the tradesmen were professional and highly skilled. It’s been four months since my renovation and I’m still in love with my kitchen.
We had our first kitchen party the other night and the universal response was WOW!
We love love love our new kitchen, designed and installed by Kitchen Capital. It wasn’t easy designing the right kitchen for our house – an old lady of a house with limited wall space in the kitchen, and non-standard everything (they made everything by hand and line of sight in those days). The design had to fit in and complement existing period features (oval leadlight window right in the middle of the area), french doors etc. Nicole, our designer, was incredibly patient, very thoughtful in the way she planned out the kitchen and meticulous in getting the details right. The tradespeople used by kitchen capital were timely, good communicators and took great pride in their work. Kitchen Capital took much of the stress out of doing our kitchen – even my husband is a convert! The results in our kitchen speak for themselves – it is simply beautiful… and functional … and the kitchen looks like it has always been there. We had our first kitchen party (all parties end up in the kitchen, after all) the other night and the universal response was WOW! Thank you to Nicole, Marian and all at Kitchen Capital.
I am very pleased with the finishing touches made to my kitchen
Special thanks to Sue for listening to what I wanted and ensuring everything was done according to the plan within an acceptable time frame. The trades were very considerate of my property and the neighbours even made comment of how polite they all were. Looking brilliant and have no hesitation in recommending the company to my family & friends.
Kitchen Capital provided a professional service from start to finish
Sue Jansen, the designer listened to our ideas and added her experience in the design to make a kitchen that looks fabulous and works smoothly. As soon as she walked into the space she knew what would work which was inline with our vision. She included a bulkhead to lower the ceiling height so that the cupboard ratios looked balanced. Added details included push open cupboards for the top cupboards and under the island which removed the clutter from too many handles. The use of Blum fittings for all drawers and doors and some great space corner cupboard shelving finished off the details beautifully. KC also stocks polished nickel furnishings which matched the doors in the rest of the house. Our preference was to have painted doors and drawers but were concerned on price, but thankfully they only use paint for doors (not vinyl) thus driving the cost down and the end result was a beautiful finish. The thoroughness and professionalism is shown when you receive the full schedule of payments and activities that they provided prior to build, no hidden extras. Kitchen Capital uses a team of skilled craftsmen who work with them on all their projects. They are polite, fastidious in their attention to detail and timely. Particular details of note includes incorporating the wall cornice beautifully around the bulkhead and extractor hood box, and installing the extractor hood which was enormous but works as a standout feature. The cabinet fitters work was also fastidious. On Sue’s recommendation the floors were sanded and polished after cupboard install but prior to kick-boards being fitted. They came back to complete and the final look is a stunning kitchen. The project met the time constraint, stayed on budget and looked fabulous and is a delight to use. We are delighted with our beautiful kitchen.
Nicole designed a wonderful kitchen
It was built on schedule and the quality of workmanship was excellent. Apart from the builder involved in demolition I would recommend and reuse everyone that is part of the team.
Our experience with Kitchen Capital was exceptional and we are delighted with our new kitchen
After talking to many kitchen renovation companies, we became torn between two who had great ideas and Jo and I literally had to toss a coin to decide. Kitchen Capital got the nod and we could not have been happier. Their design and attention to detail was outstanding and, despite many changes through the process, happily accommodated every alteration until we got it right the way we wanted. The professionalism of their cabinetry staff was second to none, they started and finished the job exactly on time, and they cleaned up completely after every day’s work and at the final completion. They were extremely courteous and mindful of being in our home the whole time. Our island bench is an absolute work of art! Well done Kitchen Capital; thank you and we are more than happy to recommend you most highly.
We decided to go with them due to the professionalism and coming up with ideas we hadn’t thought about.
We visited Homebase in Wembley and came across Kitchen Capital. We decided to go with them due to the professionalism and coming up with ideas we hadn’t thought about. From day one we were very impressed with the whole team. Everything was scheduled to plan and everything ran smoothly. The workmanship was outstanding every last detail was thought of. We were really happy with the outcome. Highly recommend Kitchen Capital for any renovation your thinking of Kitchen, Bathroom or Laundry.
Nicole put a lot of thought into the design, which resulted in an excellent outcome
More space, more storage, much better layout etc. The actual removal of the old kitchen and installation of the new proceeded very smoothly and quickly, about 3 weeks from start to finish. And it looks terrific, it has made a huge difference to the house. Very happy.

We were extremely satisfied with Kitchen Capital experience and professionalism
We engaged Sue to design a custom built kitchen to suit our family needs for our new home. Sue worked to clarify our lifestyle requirements and our preferred style before developing the kitchen details inclusive of dimensions, cabinet and bench top materials, sink and tap details, appliance choices and power and lighting considerations. We were extremely satisfied with Kitchen Capital experience and professionalism and would strongly recommend their services if you are designing and building a new kitchen.
Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
A fantastic company to work with. Shelley had great ideas, and pulled it all together seamlessly. Would recommend 100%
We are extremely happy that we chose Kitchen Capital to achieve our dream kitchen.

Because of this, the result is an outstanding kitchen that we will enjoy for the rest of our days.

From a builder’s perspective, it makes working on their jobs a pleasure.
I have worked with Kitchen Capital WA for many years now and can highly recommend them. From design through to completion, their communication and organisational skills are fantastic.
We can’t recommend Kitchen Capital enough!
Sue designed a fabulous kitchen, incorporating everything that we wanted. Her team transformed our ugly, unusable kitchen into a highly functional space, that is a joy to use. The Kitchen Capital Team were professional, courteous and their workmanship was exemplary. We love our new kitchen. Thank you Kitchen Capital.
