by Jonny S | 05/01/2023

Are you running out of space in your kitchen now that the family’s growing? Or maybe the fixtures are getting old and faulty? With a fresh renovation, you can give your home a new look while also improving the efficiency and quality of the installed appliances and storage units.

In this post, we’re going to help you learn about how you can ensure your kitchen renovation project runs smooth, quick, and easy with Aireno.com.au. We will also look at the steps that you can follow for a DIY remodel instead.

Our Process

Start, manage and complete your project easily with our digital renovation platform

Here is how you can get your kitchen renovation project done with Aireno:

  • Get a Kitchen Renovation Quote: To get started with your renovation project, the first thing that you have to do is get a quote from our official website. After filling out the form with the necessary details, you will get an accurate quote for your project with a proper breakdown of the different costs and expenses.
  • Matching with a Renovation Team: Once you’re happy with the quote, we’ll get started by getting you in touch with a renovation team that is available in your area, is competent in the particular renovation you need, and is compatible with your budget. Thanks to our detailed matching process, you will be paired with skilled professionals who will expertly handle your project while keeping you updated.
  • Project Planning: After matching with your team, you can take to the Houseace dashboard for planning and arranging the entire project as per your needs, requirements, and preferences. You can select and specify the products you need as well as the colours, paints, and finishes on the various surfaces, etc.
  • Schedule, Execute and Collaborate: After planning your whole project, you can get started with putting it all into action. Your team will start working on the renovation while keeping you updated about the different tasks and milestones. Communication is super easy with the Houseace application. You can use the chat option to constantly keep in touch with your team and stay on top of your project’s progress.
  • Make Payments Easily: Apart from helping you plan and manage your project, Houseace also allows you to make payments to your team as the different milestones are completed. The payments are safe and secure.

Looking for a DIY Solution Instead?

If you want to take your project into your own hands, no worries. Here are the steps that you have to follow for that;

  • Start Off with the Design Plan: To lay the groundwork for your renovation project, you first have to create a remodelling plan. In this plan, you have to outline and specify the exact elements, products, and items you want to install/replace in your kitchen.
  • Specify a Budget: Keeping your plan in mind, you have to allocate a budget for the whole remodelling job. Specifying the budget beforehand helps you to keep your expectations realistic and also to refrain from making unnecessary expenditures.
  • Create a Timeline and a Project Breakdown: Apart from setting the budget, you also have to decide the total time you’re going to dedicate to the project as well as how much time the various phases of the project will take up. Doing all of this is to make sure that you stick to a plan throughout the whole process.
  • Permits and Permissions: With all the plans in place, the next thing you have to do is get the necessary permits and permissions to go ahead with your project. This largely depends on your home location as well as the local laws that govern remodelling/renovation projects.
    If you have your own home i.e., and not a rented apartment, etc., then you won’t need to get anyone’s permission other than yourself. Similarly, if the project you’re planning to do is not too extensive (or if your local laws don’t require you to get a permit from the government office), then you don’t have to worry about the permits as well.
  • Prep the Kitchen for the Remodel: Next up, you have to prep your kitchen for the remodel by taking the following steps:
    • Turning off the water and gas supply
    • Removing all belongings and items from the cabinets, cupboards, shelves, and counters
    • Removing any and all furniture in the kitchen as well as wall hangings and other types of trinkets
  • Gut the Kitchen: After all of the above is done, you’ll just need to gut the kitchen in order to make way for the new fixtures, flooring, etc. A full gut or ‘demolition’ will only be needed if your renovation project requires it. If your project simply involves installing a couple of new appliances or fixtures, then you will just have to remove those specific parts.
  • Install the New Fixtures/Flooring etc.: Now you can get started with installing the new fixtures, fitting the new floors, painting the walls, and everything else was included in your agenda.

And that is pretty much it. After installing the fixtures and finishing the whole project, you can move all the things back into the kitchen and re-open the gas and water supply.

Miscellaneous Tips for Kitchen Remodelling

  • Go for a kitchen island if you don’t have one already. Kitchen islands can be a great addition to your place. They can give you more space to work and a lot of storage options for stowing away your utensils, appliances, etc.
  • Add more shelves than you think you need. You can always use the storage space.
  • Pick a light and breezy paint that complements your home and makes your time spent in the kitchen relaxing and peaceful. Don’t go for some sort of dark and depressing shade. Apart from making you stressed out, dark paint shades can also make the place look cramped and stuffy.
  • Install waterproof flooring. A hardwood floor in the kitchen is not really a good idea. Go for tiles or vinyl.

While you can follow the above tips and steps for a DIY remodel, it can be a lot easier for you and a lot better for your home to simply use Aireno for your project. We will get you in touch with an expert team and help you seamlessly manage your project till completion.
