I need to upgrade the kitchen in a small unit in the Eastern Suburb of Melbourne. Because it’s an very old building and I intent to sell in a couple years’ time, I don’t want to spend more than I should. I am indecisive between Bunnings Kaboodle Kitchen or Ikea…. Ikea has 25 years warranty and has cheaper range while Kaboodle offers only 10 years. Any suggestion? Thanks.MattParticipant@ilpJoin Date: 2015Post Count: 1
I think it depends on what the market wants. I recently renovated the bedrooms and loungeroom in one of my properties and I used the cheapest products I could find. I chose cheap products because I didn’t believe the market was going to pay more for expensive products. When I refer to ‘the market’, I mean that properties with nicer products weren’t commanding a rent or sale price that would outweigh the additional expense. Hope this helps.JanHParticipant@jhmzJoin Date: 2017Post Count: 7
Thanks Matt. I ended up paying for a company to do the whole lot. You are right about the preferences of the buyer or renter. Expensive products won’t make any difference to the rent of this old unit.BrettParticipant@brettgarlandJoin Date: 2019Post Count: 3
I know you have posted that you chose a company to do it but thought I would reply in case others needed help.
I have used both Kaboodle and Ikea for kitchens, Where possible I would go back to IKEA.

Ikea is cheaper and has long years of warranty. I choose Ikea if you have two choices only. Anyway, try to find cheaper yet good quality.BuyersAgentParticipant@knightmJoin Date: 2005Post Count: 338

The last time I looked at IKEA kitchens the backing of the cabinets was a bit thin. Happy with them otherwise but I like to know the cabinets are solid. I choose Bunnings for that one but this was in coastal QLD area and my options were limited. Haven’t checked the cabinet strength of the Kaboodle ones.
