The 4Kitchen’s unique four-pillar process guarantees you:

Stunning Design Process

Our highly-awarded team of designers will work with you until we’ve created a highly functional, stunning kitchen plan that makes you ecstatic. We’ll listen to your needs and dreams, and combine your ideas with our expertise in design to create a fabulous new space you and your family will love. We don’t use off-the-shelf solutions – all our kitchens are custom designed to suit the way you cook, live, entertain and relax. We’re specialists in creating kitchens that are truly the heart of the home.

Master Craftsmanship

We’re a family-owned business that’s been serving Darwin for more than 33 years. That means it’s more than just kitchens to us. On each and every kitchen, we want to do the absolute best job we can. Our award-winning team of craftsmen work on every surface, every joint and every piece of your kitchen fits just perfectly… Even the parts you can’t see! Because we design, manufacture and install we oversee every part of the process, guaranteeing a quality finish and high standards of workmanship.

Full Turn-Key, ‘Stress Free’ Solutions and Service

We take care of everything so you don’t have to worry about a thing. From initial design concepts through to completion… and beyond (yes, we’ll even call you after to make sure everything is going great… and in the rare chance there’s a problem, we’ll fix it). We know you don’t want to be given the run around so you’ll have a single point of contact throughout the whole project – that’s one person you can contact with queries or just to have a chat.

Market-Leading Warranties

You want a kitchen that’s going to add value to your home and still look amazing years from now. That’s why we only work with the best quality suppliers and products. And, if something does go wrong, you’re protected by a Lifetime Warranty* on our hinges and drawer systems, a limited 10-year warranty on all cabinet doors, carcasses and panels that we manufacture for the purpose and use for which they were originally designed). Plus all our work is covered by a 10 Year Workmanship Warranty*

3D Design

Our professional 3D designs give you the ability to see your new space come to life and make any changes before you lay the first tile.

This will not only help you create an even more beautiful and functional kitchen than you can imagine, but can save you money by ensuring you get it right the first time.

Installation Timeline – Step by Step

Disconnect plumbing, gas and electrical to make work area safe*. Remove old cabinets and splashback**.

Deliver and install new cabinets. Hang doors and install drawers.

Benchtop measured by stonemason. Allow 5 working days for stone preparation.

Delivery and installation of benchtop by stonemason.

Splashback installed. Tiles can be installed straight away. See below for additional notes on glass and stone.

Fit off final plumbing and electrical. Kitchen is complete – enjoy for many years to come!

If additional structural work is required, this will add time to the schedule. If you need to re-tile or move powerpoints/plumbing, this happens prior to the installation of the new cabinetry.

If you have chosen a glass splashback, this is measured after the benchtop is installed and can take up to 3 weeks for preparation and installation, however the kitchen can be used in this time.

If you have chosen a stone benchtop, allow up to 5 working days for masonry or manufacture.

This is a typical timeline but every project is treated on an individual basis and may require other works to be completed or works may be completed in a shorter time frame. We develop a schedule based on your specific needs.
