Cosmetic Kitchen Renovations
A cosmetic kitchen renovation involves replacing easily removed items. This could include a new countertop or tiled backsplash, new appliances and hardware for your drawer fronts and cabinet doors.
If you are selling your home, and only a few things need to be updated before you sell your house, then cosmetic kitchen renovations might be the right choice.

If you are planning to install a tile backsplash or countertop, it is important that you allow for more time. Allow for 1-4 weeks to complete the design, quoting and product selection.

The cost of a cosmetic renovation does not necessarily have to be high or low. Even if you only make cosmetic improvements, you can still spend a lot. You need to remember why you are renovating. You should make sure that the amount you spend on renovations is in line with the benefits you get (eg, years of enjoyment, increased value, and a higher sale price).

Reinstall and remove kitchen renovations
Take the cosmetic renovation to the next level with the remove-and-reinstall renovation. This type of renovation involves removing items and reinstalling them in the exact same place. Kitchen renovations typically involve removing existing kitchen cabinets and installing new ones in the exact same spot. This ensures that your stove, sink, and fridge stay in the same place and your kitchen layout doesn’t change.
This type of renovation can include replacing cabinets and hardware. It can also include countertops and backsplashes, light fixtures, appliances, and flooring.

Cabinets of good quality take between 6-10 weeks to make. You should still expect at least four weeks, even if your contractor orders cabinets from a supplier that builds them on an assembly-line in a factory. Multi Trade Building Services manufactures its cabinets using our cabinet maker. Each cabinet is made to order, so you don’t need to use fillers. We can build a cabinet that is 27.36 inches wide to fit your space.
Re and re-kitchen renovations can take between 2-6 weeks to complete the design, quoting and product selection. The order of materials can take between 4-10 weeks and the actual work will take 2-5 weeks depending upon how complex the project is.

This question depends on how big your kitchen is and the quality of cabinets you choose. Stainted maple cabinets will cost more than thermofoil cabinets.
Budget between $15,000 and $20,000. This budget will provide you with basic hardware and cabinets, as well as a basic laminate countertop. The existing flooring and appliances would be kept. You could spend as much as $50,000 to upgrade cabinets, a countertop made of stone, new flooring, and new appliances. Your reno may fall somewhere in the middle of these extremes, depending on what choices you make.

Before you begin any demolition, consult an Architectural Technologist. Do not trust your contractor. Consult a professional, get accurate drawings made and apply for a permit.
