Step 1: Measuring The Kitchen Area
Every kitchen makeover starts with us visiting our client’s home, measuring their kitchen area and discussing their design ideas. On this occasion, it was our fabulous designer, Stacie that visited the Rollo’s home in Yeronga on the 20th Feb 2017.
Stacie remembers the Rollo’s having the following design ideas (Wish list):
- Broom cupboard
- Rubbish bin cupboard
- Lazy Susan corner cupboards
- Pantry with inner drawers
- Spice cabinet
- More bench space
- Separate cook top and oven
- New appliances

Step 2: The Kitchen Design Process
Having met with the Rollo’s, measured their kitchen space and discussed their makeover ideas it was now time for Stacie to get on with designing the kitchen.
Stacie invited the Rollo’s to our showroom in Gaythorne at 2/440 Samford Road on the 28th Feb 2017.
These are the initial designs that Stacie showed them:
The first design is never final and as expected, the Rollo’s wanted several changes.
This is what the Rollo’s decided to change:
- The sink location was moved back to the existing location.
- The Pantry configuration was change from a double door pantry to a split pantry consisting of three bottom drawers and the doors at the top.
- Finishes and bench top colours were changed and finalised.
Stacie and the Rollo’s worked together to design the perfect kitchen. The Rollo’s continued to visit the showroom and make changes until they were happy with the design.
The Rollo’s were very happy with their final design and price. They were wanting to proceed to the next stage where a contract is typed up and signed by both parties.
Step 3: The Cabinet Maker Process
Once the client has confirmed the design, paid the deposit and is happy to proceed with ordering their new kitchen (by signing the contract), our Cabinet Maker must come to site to complete a check measure.
The check measure ensures that we have the correct details concerning measurements, colours, materials, tradesmen, etc. The cabinet maker will then confirm his details and cross check the order. Once this is complete he will place the order. Note this process is subject to the availability of both the client and cabinet maker.
Our kitchen design software syncs without local manufacturer in Brisbane. So, when the Rollo’s were happy with their final design we placed the order with our manufacturer.
Our manufacturer uses laser technology to cut and assembly the cabinetry and install the hardware (soft close) resulting in a very high quality product.
Step 4: The Kitchen Installation Process
3 weeks later the kitchen was complete and sent onsite. We had organised to remove the existing kitchen the day prior to this to ensure our installer could install that day. He was as planned able to complete the kitchen cabinetry within the day.
Our stone mason was notified of the kitchen progress and came onsite to do his template measure. He was able to return to the Rollo’s in a week to install the final polished stone.
Here are some after pictures of their kitchen makeover:
The Rollo’s were very happy with their final product. This is what they had to say:
We had reviewed so many kitchen plans in magazines and over the internet that we were totally confused with how we could renovate our kitchen which had two doorways, an old stove recess and windows that were below bench height. Everything was designed for modern homes.
Stacie at the Gaythorne showroom worked with us through numerous designs to fit in our “wish list” within the space available. There was no pressure for us to rush into a commitment as we made our decision. Stacie was a pleasure to deal with. All the installers were professional and we are happy with the standard of their work. We are very happy with the end result and feel we got good value for the budget we had available.
We loved working with the Rollo’s. They’re a lovely couple and we just wanted to publicly thank them for their business.
Well there you have it, a complete kitchen makeover in just a couple of weeks. All thanks to the Exclusiv Makeover Machine process.
There aren’t many kitchen companies in town that can match our time to complete and our price!!
