    Hi

    Any recommendations on discount kitchen makers in the Sydney region - as in cabinet makers rather than retail outlets. This is for made to spec rather than off the shelf.

    I work for a builder and looking for some alternative suppliers at an appropriate price. Most of our kitchens are poly with stone benchtops. Its more hit than miss Googling kitchen makers/cabinet makers and phoning as most are retail or high end architecturally oriented. I suspect those I am looking for may not have websites - and don't need to!!

    Those we currently use do a site check/measure to confirm dimensions once framework and sheeting is up, and do the install.

    Thanks

    These guys are an online company so if you know what you're doing re measuring up (I'm sure you do!), they're a good option. They can send samples in the post and then you place your order online. Good pricing too as they don't have a shop front as such... My Semble Design

    Thanks for that, but really looking for good price cabinet makers who also install otherwise the kitchen starts to become the project rather than the overall house - save on cabinets but then when you factor in the time involved in double checking measurements, installing cabinets and cutting/joining stone bench tops etc etc etc the time spent eats up the saving and slows down the general works. Most work is sub contracted anyway, so kitchens just being another.

    However for investment properties, how do Semble stack up to the other flat pack companies in price, or to Under 2k in quality and price. I would guess the quality of Aussie cabinets and Blum fittings might be better, although under 2K throw in everything including the kitchen sink.
