What is a kitchen makeover?
For a typical kitchen makeover we replace all the cabinet doors, drawer fronts, panels, cornice, pelmet and plinth (kicker) in your existing kitchen.
The process of a kitchen makeover begins when you submit your makeover form. We prepare an estimate based on the photographs you send in. We use the photographs to estimate the size and quantities of everything needed for you makeover. When you have reviewed your estimate, we can arrange a date for someone to call out and measure your kitchen to ensure all our estimates sizes are correct. From here, you can place your order and we will organise delivery and and fitting.

How soon can I have my makeover?
We generally recommend you book your kitchen makeover 2 – 4 weeks in advance, this will allow us time to have custom doors made if necessary. If your existing kitchen uses entirely standard sizes, we may be able to schedule your makeover in a few days.
How much does the makeover cost?
A makeover cost all depends on the size of your kitchen, the style you are looking for and the additions you want (e.g. sink, tap, worktop).
The starting price for kitchen makeover starts at around €2000.
How long does a kitchen makeover take?
A complete kitchen makeover usually takes 1 or 2 days.
Will I be able to use my kitchen during the makeover?
During the makeover we do ask you give our kitchen fitters exclusive use of your kitchen while they are working. If your makeover is not completed in one day we will endeavour to leave your kitchen in a usable condition at the end of each day.
Can I makeover an Ikea kitchen?
Yes, we have a range of styles we can offer to makeover an Ikea kitchen. As Ikea use non-standard door sizes the lead time for an Ikea kitchen makeover is usually a few days longer.
Do you paint kitchen doors?
Repainting kitchen doors has typically been the only makeover available in Ireland. We prefer to offer our customers brand new doors and accessories as this allows us to offer a much wider range of makeover styles and enables us to guarantee the quality of the finished kitchen.
There is often little difference in price between having your existing kitchen doors professionally repainted and replacing them with completely new doors in your choice of style and colour.
What additional options are there?
These items will usually be detailed as additional options in your makeover estimate.
Can I change traditional to modern or modern to traditional?
Yes, of course you can! Your doors, drawer fronts and panels will be changed so your kitchen will look brand new whether you choose traditional or modern style doors. By adding worktops and other accessories you can really make your kitchen pop.
Why would I get a makeover and not just buy a new kitchen?
The reason most people don’t want to buy a new kitchen is based on one thing and that is budget.
When you are on a budget you don’t want to strip out your whole kitchen and buy a brand new. When you can keep certain components of your existing kitchen but just remodel them. By changing the doors and accessories you can transform your existing kitchen into a kitchen that is half the price of a brand new one but looks just as good.
If you would prefer a completely new kitchen, we can help with that too.
