Getting Started

There are six simple steps to follow in getting a new kitchen or cabinetry from Elite Kitchens and Cabinets. Click on any of the steps below to see what is involved in each step of the process:


The first step is to book a consultation with one of our designers to establish a preliminary design and specifications for your new kitchen, or if you already have a plan, we are happy to price this for you. We will need some general dimensions of  your room showing where the windows and doors are situated. Do not worry about getting a precise measurement as one of our team members will visit to complete a detailed site measure upon acceptance of our quote. We will also need to receive from you your intended specifications, and if you have specific ideas for the look and feel of your kitchen already please feel free to bring with you photographs or pictures from magazines or websites.

To help you sketch your existing kitchen space, you may download graph paper here.

Once you are happy with the preliminary design, we will provide you with a fixed price quote for your new kitchen based on that design. Our quotes are detailed and itemised so you can see the cost components that calculate your quote total. If you would prefer, we are happy to quote different options for you such as the prices of different benchtops or cabinet finishes.

After you have accepted our quote, we will make an appointment with you to visit and measure your kitchen area to check the precise measurements of your kitchen to ensure the final design of your kitchen will fit into your home as planned. 

When you have accepted our quote, one of our designers will meet with you to finalise your kitchen plans and specifications. Any significant changes on the preliminary plan will be priced for you for your approval.

Your new kitchen will be built by our local tradesman in our factory which will take between 5-7 weeks depending on its size, componentry and end finish. We encourage you to visit our factory to inspect your new kitchen prior to delivery and installation.

Your new kitchen will be delivered usually the day before installation, for installation by one of Elite’s professional cabinetmaker installers. Any stone bench-tops will need to be templated after the cabinets have been installed to ensure a professional installation and finish, and it will then be delivered generally within 7 to 15 working days depending on the stone selected and it's thickness. We can supply a temporary bench-top which will be plumbed in to allow you to use your kitchen during this period, but please discuss any requirements with your Elite designer during your design process.


Splash-backs will usually be templated after your bench-top is installed, and will be delivered generally within 10-15 days. Any final touches such as toe-kicks and ceiling scribers are to be installed when all other work required in your kitchen area such as flooring work, plumbing and marking up of sink draws are complete. We will keep you informed all throughout the process.
