New kitchens and fitters?
Just wondering if anyone out there has had a new kitchen fitted in their house (obviously not a top of the range, swanky refurb 'cos that's out of reach of the budget!) and can give me an idea of the price and any recommendations for kitchen fitters or good places to try. I was thinking of going to the Bunnings Kitchen Outlet place in Pooraka, but I wonder whether anyone else has had a kitchen from them, or from somewhere like IKEA, 'cos I could possibly fit cabinets myself...would just need an electrician and a plumber to install appliances. Thanks. ;)

The sink was easy to fit too, including the waterworks, ditto the dishwasher. I would recommend an electrician for plug sockets, but if the plumbing is there, fitting the taps and dishwasher is DIY too.
I did a big kitchen, including breakfast bar, wall cupboards and microwave cupboard, for $3000 when the going rate fitted was at least $6000.
If you need any help or advice, let Cazzie or me know.
Good luck, you can do it!
We got our kitchen from IKEA. It cost under $5000. While we used a diff electrician at the time I would use Mark from Southlec for the electrical side of things. We only found him recently and I think he's great. If you have a look under recommendations there are quite a few electricians listed...
I can't think of a plumber I am afraid.
Guzzler fit our kitchen for us.
Hope this info helps
Thank you all. Will write all info down in my 'reno notebook'. Really want to keep costs down as much as poss. Having fitted an entire MFI kitchen, including oven and cooktop in last house, I think hubby will manage with putting the cabinets and electrics in. And I'm a whizz at tiling. :)
