pr0 Thanks for your reply. To answer your questions;
Are you employing a qualified kitchen designer and or installer? Looking to design ourselves using kitsets and experienced builder will be installing.
Are you intending to maintain the existing unit’s footprint? Yes.
Are the major components such as sink, cooker, dishwasher and refrigerator being retained in the same positions and are there any new additions? Only the refrigerator will be relocated and no new additions.
Are you changing energy type – say gas for electric? Remote possibility of changing to gas cooking for which supply is already in place for water heating.
Are you raising the floor level with ceramic tiles? No, probably staying with vinyl flooring.
Our budget is about $15k and I will be helping the builder for part of the work. I will also be doing the painting.
Thanks again for your advice.
