Our Showroom team have come up with this list of frequently asked questions that might help you with your dream kitchen – and it might allay some renovating fears you might have. If you have additional queries, please get in touch.

What COVID-19 precautions have you implemented?2021-07-08T13:59:54+10:00

We value the health and safety of our customers and staff and have implemented the following changes within our business: hand sanitiser is available on entry to the showroom, and our showroom staff routinely disinfect and wipe down showroom surfaces; our kitchen designers, project managers and installers will maintain social distancing whilst in your home, and will use hand sanitiser before entering your home and whilst working. If you are feeling unwell, or if you have travelled, we ask that you notify us prior to any appointment, and we will happily reschedule if required.

What areas do you service?2021-07-07T16:01:48+10:00

MKN welcomes enquiries from the greater Brisbane area, and areas within the Moreton Bay region.

What is your process?2021-07-07T16:02:16+10:00

Our process starts with a showroom consultation where you select finishes for your new kitchen. Following this, an in-home design appointment is booked so our designer can measure your space and discuss your requirements. Upon completing the design and quotation you will be invited to attend a presentation appointment so that our designer can run through your kitchen floorplan, show you 3D renders and discuss pricing. Once you have signed a contract, we will appoint a project manager, and they will complete a check measure and schedule your installation. Once you have signed off on your final technical drawings, we will manufacture your new kitchen, deliver it to site and project manage the installation.

How much does a design cost?2021-07-07T16:02:39+10:00

We do not charge a fee for your showroom consultation, design appointment or presentation appointment.

Absolutely! We have a variety of handle-less options available for you to select from.

Can you quote a new benchtop and doors only?2021-07-07T16:10:40+10:00

Can you offer a ballpark figure?2021-07-07T16:11:04+10:00

Very hard to answer without seeing the space and knowing what products you would like to use – but if you visit the showroom and speak to our experienced team we can provide you with a guide to how much a new kitchen might be.

Do you provide free quotes?2021-07-07T16:11:26+10:00

We do, but we are much more than a quoting service and our priority is to guide you through your kitchen renovation so that it is enjoyable and stress-free. We pay attention to the details – review your current layout, offer advice on the huge range of products available and provide you with a new design to perfectly suit your space.

I think I want to remove a wall and add a window – can you arrange this?2021-07-07T16:11:51+10:00

MKN can’t do this work, but we can put you in touch with a registered builder who can carry out any building work you require.

“Well what can we say..MKN gave 110% in every way.

Every step of the process from MKN was professional and the finish was beyond my expectations. Such a breath of fresh air to deal with a reliable company that provides such a professional finish – that’s so hard to find in today’s market.

Communication was excellent from start to finish.
Highly recommend using MKN Kitchens!!

Geoff Sawyer – Google Review

We were looking at installing a new kitchen and MKN had been recommended to us by friend’s. From our very first phone call with MKN, to our new kitchen installation we found the whole process to be a breeze. They are professional and dedicated to giving you your dream kitchen. The design and cabinets are stunning and so beautiful looking. All the trades people involved were engaged by MKN and there was no hiccups with any of them. We love our kitchen and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend MKN.
