Examples of the cost and prices of kitchen units in Pretoria 2021

2021-07-10

Kitchen unit prices and costing in PretoriaI often get asked "How must does a kitchen cost?" The answer I most often use is "how long is a piece of string?" Without the data the question is impossible to answer without any certainty. Certainty comes from knowing the dimensions of the kitchen and what your specific needs are, The good news is that I will do a free quote for your kitchen, All you have to do is ask, click here to request a consultation.. The facts are that you are here because you are looking for a guide line so what I have done is look at how to answer the question, "What does a kitchen renovation cost in Pretoria?"

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. Lets look at different ways to renovate your kitchen. Each method is discussed in more detail on a page dedicated to the method. All prices are subject to change without notice, exclude discounts and include installation within 40 kms of my workshop.

Board prices have risen by 20% this year, It is the highest increase we have seen in many years. Availability of raw materials and COVID are the excuses used.

Kitchen Renovation costs Pretoria: Methods to be discussed


The first methods we will discuss include renovating existing units and not replacing them. This could be replacing tops and doors, respraying the kitchen, or even just servicing the hinges and handles, Sometimes a small change can make a huge difference. If your kitchen is basically sound a little attention can make a huge difference.

Pretoria Kitchen renovation costs: Reface don't replace


I have seen well maintained kitchens over 20 years old that need very little to bring them into the 21st century, New tops, new doors and maybe replacing one or two units that have seen undue wear. Ordinarily the units that need replacing are in areas where water and heat cause early break down of the materials. The sink unit, the panels alongside the stove and washing machines are also likely to be damaged.

You can save 50% or more on your kitchen renovation by using the existing units.

What does a kitchen respray cost?


The next method we will discuss is refinishing existing doors by repainting them, This can be done by hand or with the spray gun. Spray painting is a messy business, so I tend to use rollers and brushes on components that cannot be taken back to the workshop. The first step in such a renovation is removing all components that can be like doors and drawers, taking them back to the workshop, and re-coating them. Then I will prepare all the fixed components and faces in the kitchen and coat them on site. These can be spray painted but I recommend rollers and brushes because the dust from spray painting will make even the most easy going person unhappy.

The costs of respraying vary from kitchen to kitchen but from experience you can work on between R 400 and R 800 a square meter of surface to be covered. Factors that will affect costs are what the surfaces are, how much preparation will be needed and the chosen finish. As far as colour goes, the sky is the limit.

Kitchen renovation costs: Complete replacement


The third method is replacing the whole kitchen. 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 blog on the 10th of July 2021. Material prices do change because of exchange rates, cost of living and various other reasons, so if you find this in 2022 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 40km's of my home base. The minimum installation cost is R 2500.00 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 hinges, hollow stainless steel handles, and the drawer runners are the extendable bearing type, we do not use roller type drawer runners because they are not as good as the bearing type.

Three piece kitchen unit costs in Pretoria


At Pretoria Kitchens we don't do cheap and nasty, we do a quality product with minimum specifications, I am not sure exactly what a 3 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 smallest kitchen I designed here consists of 5 units and I designed two variations.
3 piece Melawood kitchen unit costs
3 piece kitchen unit, this includes a grocery cabinet, two floor units, one with drawers and two wall units, one of them being a display shelf. This 5 unit kitchen qualifies as a 3 piece set as sold by the major chains. The difference between ours and theirs is size, our standard unit depth is 600 mm measured from the back of the counter top to the front. The units combine to form a 1,8m unit with a 1.35 meter counter top, The counter top is 32mm formica with a bullnose finish. The floor units stand on stainless steel legs and the wall units are attached to the wall above them. These are not free standing units.

They are available in the colour range at the bottom of the page. I have drawn it in two of the colour choices, above it is displayed in Summer Oak with a dark top and below in Super white also with a dark top.

A formica top for this setup will vary from about R 1293.00 to R 2500.00, Solid wood tops will vary from 3270 to 7500.00, Granite will be similar to the solid wood tops.

Complete and installed in Supa White with Glossy Formica tops, This layout will cost around R 15 000.00. This design makes no real sense in the real world, so I can say from experience if you have an average sized home with a 3 x 3 kitchen you should be budgeting between R 40 and 50 000 for your kitchen. Note these prices include top quality hardware like stainless steel feet, stainless steel handles, soft close runners and hinges. We specialise in Quality.

You can see what changing just one unit does to the price of a kitchen renovation.

6 piece kitchen unit prices


The next kitchen costing consists of 6 units, A grocery cabinet, a 900 floor units, a drawer unit and a 450 floor unit and two 900 wall units. Like the previous unit it comes complete with stainless steel feet, hollow stainless steel handles and good quality hinges and drawer runners.

Adding just one kitchen unit can affect the cost substantially.
