Bespoke Kitchen Renovation, Centurion & Pretoria East

Crafting Dreams, One piece of wood at a Time: Get exactly what you want at Dust Factory

Welcome to Dust Factory, where I, personally craft custom furniture and cabinetry.

I don't just drop teams on site and head to the pub; I'm involved in every aspect of the process, from selecting the finest timber and board products to meticulously sandpapering and even cleaning the floors. Quality is my utmost priority, and I believe that the joy of owning a remarkable piece of furniture outlasts any fleeting thoughts of its cost.

If you're searching for something truly unique, whether it's a bespoke kitchen, a cozy bedroom, or a timeless piece of furniture destined to become an heirloom, you're in the right place. Your journey with Dust Factory will be more than just a transaction; it will be a collaborative experience in creating something special that you'll cherish for years to come.

This also means I have limited capacity, I cannot be rushed, I only take on as much as I can cope with at any given time.

Here at Dust Factory I do kitchen renovation from small kitchens to big kitchens. I specialise in bespoke kitchens with a difference, Solid wood tops, farmhouse style hand painted or spray painted, ultra modern high gloss, solid wood and melamine.

All work is done by me personally, I am of the opinion that if you want something done right, it's best to do it myself, I have tried using others in the past and had very little success. At one time I had 13 people working for me and all I did was fix problems and earn a whole lot less.

Small kitchen design Pretoria

Small kitchens need a little flexibility and creative use of every bit of space. I have designed kitchens since 1987 and know that wasting space that can be efficiently utilised is not sensible.

Designing small kitchens means multiple uses for every space, creating enough work area and storage can be challenging. Standard design practices may be used as a guide but are not always practical in small spaces.

Kitchen Design Pretoria

Badly designed Kitchens create uncomfortable cooking areas. The most important information a kitchen designer needs to design your kitchen is what type of kitchen are we designing? All show and no cooking? Family gathering kitchen? A chefs paradise? or a bakers delight? or a combination of these facets.

Back in the 1980's people talked about triangles in design, I always thought this was a little wrong because kitchens consist of four main areas. Storage or Pantry, Preparation and Cooking, Serving and then Cleaning. I like to use two triangles in my design. Storage Prep and Serving, Serving, cleaning and Storage. The two triangles overlap but when efficiency matters it's a good system.

Kitchen Renovation Process

First things first you need to contact me, You can contact me by phone, by email and by Whatsapp.

I prefer you to use click here to request a consultation. The reason is that then I have a record of all the information I need.

I will call back and make an appointment to discuss your needs, In that consultation we will discuss colours, options and design criteria. I will take the measurements and spend time at my computer designing. I will send you a quote with the two images or the full set of plans if you ordered them.

Once you accept the quote and pay the deposit, I will order materials and add your project to the schedule. I will supply an approximate delivery date at this time. I work on one project at a time and delays on any prior projects will affect the delivery dates.

Materials will be delivered to my premises and checked. When ready I will deliver to site, The next payment then becomes due

Delivery will occur, Installation will start. At this time I ask you not to interfere with me and my work. I have been doing this for a long time and know that things will seem incomplete, things may even look wrong but they will all be according to plan. Once installation is complete I will advise you that this is the case. The next progress payment will now be due.

Then you have 24 hours to create a snag list. This is when you can point out all of those things that had you concerned during installation if I have not already fixed them. I am human and there will most often be something I missed. Once I have the snag list I will arrange a time and date to repair any snags. Once I have completed the snag list final payment is due.

No changes will be made during installation, If there are any variations and alterations we will discuss them, I will quote for them and make them as needed once payment has been made.

In order to give you the best possible answer I have looked at this and will answer the question about kitchen costing in Pretoria as comprehensively as I can. There is always someone willing to do any job cheaper and worse. It is far better to pay a little more than to suffer the consequences of poor quality. There are multiple ways to get a kitchen renovation to suit your budget. All prices are subject to change without notice, exclude discounts and include installation within 40 km of my workshop.

Board prices have risen by 30% at a minimum over the past few years, It is the highest increase we have seen in many years. Availability of raw materials, The exchange rate and COVID are the excuses that have been used.

Kitchen renovation costs: Complete kitchen remodel

The Dust Factory method is to start by measuring and creating a total design in 3D. This allows you to visualize your dream kitchen as accurately as possible down to the colours and textures.

So that you can get an indication of costs I am going to use 3 basic layouts and cost them for you using 3 different materials. I will use Super White Melamine, Melamine from the demand range and a shaker style sprayed kitchen. To give you an indication on the price of tops, I will use Formica tops, Saligna Tops and Oak tops as examples. Here at Dust Factory I make my own solid wood tops and specialize in Kitchens with solid wood tops.

These prices are valid as I type this on the 15 November 2023. Material prices do change because of exchange rates, cost of living and various other reasons, so if you find this in 2024 or later, look for an updated version of this page, I will add links to the updated costings if I don't just modify this page.

The prices here are for standard units, They include delivery and installation within 40 km of my home base. The minimum installation cost is R 5000.00 plus the cost of the units. I will add a list of units and their prices without delivery and installation at the bottom of this page.

All units come with quality soft close hinges, stainless steel handles, and the drawer runners are heavy duty extendable bearing type, we do not use roller type drawer runners because they are not as good as the bearing type. We also use steel feet on the base with no plinths.

Kitchen unit costs in Pretoria

At Dust Factory we don't do cheap and nasty, we do a quality product with minimum specifications, I am not sure exactly what a 5 piece kitchen set is or what it is supposed to achieve. We have modular units and we use the units to create designer kitchens. The kitchens I designed here consist of 5 units and I designed three variations.

These three designs are to give an example and to show what a difference adding a accent colour or a few drawers can make. All of them take the same amount of space 2.25m. The unit is 600mm deep using the top as the deepest part, top units are 300mm deep. All units have 4mm white backing board.
