About Kitchen Makeover

We are a well-established spray painting company locally based in Central Tauranga. We're a family owned and operated business that offers home-owners with dated or tired kitchens, property owners with a rental unit kitchen nightmare, home-sellers that need that bit extra to make their property stand out, and insurers with kitchen refurbishing claims new life to existing kitchens of all styles and sizes.

We don’t suggest replacing components of your kitchen if there’s nothing wrong with them. In fact, we fill in holes and minor damage to give your cabinetry a smooth surface, that’s then professionally prepared and lacquered to look as good as new.

Today the term is kitchen makeover rather than kitchen refurb, but they're really two ways of saying the same thing: transforming your existing kitchen into a stunning kitchen using the same high-quality materials and fittings found in a designer kitchen. And the key word to notice is "existing".

Combining hard-wearing and long-lasting 2-pot lacquer with high-quality fashionable engineered stone bench tops and glass splash backs now available provides a very cost-effective alternative to a full kitchen replacement. We have developed the proven methods to make over your existing kitchen and save you thousands compared to a replacement ... and can usually have your lacquered kitchen back to you in 10 days.

Danelle and Lindsay Johnston purchased the business in 2019 and they are both committed to making sure all projects are completed on time, on budget and delivered to perfection - when you deal with Kitchen Makeover you are dealing with the owners of the business.

Our Philosophy

We don’t suggest replacing components of your kitchen if there’s nothing wrong with them. In fact, we fill in holes and minor damage to give your cabinetry a smooth surface, that’s then professionally prepared and lacquered to look as good as new.

No one knows up-to-date trends and how to improve your existing kitchen more than us and having now completed hundreds of kitchen makeovers we know how to deliver a magnificent looking kitchen quickly and economically. Today the term is kitchen makeover rather than kitchen refurb, but they're really two ways of saying the same thing: transforming your existing kitchen into a stunning kitchen using the same high-quality materials and fittings found in a designer kitchen. And the keyword to notice is "existing".

Combining hard-wearing and long-lasting 2-pot lacquer with the high-quality, fashionable, engineered stone benchtops and glass splashbacks now available provides a very cost-effective alternative to a full kitchen replacement. We have developed the proven methods to makeover your existing kitchen and save you thousands compared to a replacement ... and can usually have your lacquered kitchen back to you in 10 days.

Plus, we can help with minor alterations however we don’t manufacture new kitchens. Why? Simply because we know our specialty is rejuvenating and modernising functioning kitchens at huge savings. We believe in the saying “Don’t fix what isn’t broken.” Why pay for new doors or drawer fronts if the ones you have are fine but just need a new finish?

A great thing about our kitchen makeover is that you don’t have to do it all at once. You can refresh your kitchen in stages or all-at-once: re-paint cabinets with beautiful lacquer, replace your benchtop, and add sparkle with a glass splashback.

Kitchenmakeover.co.nz uses qualified specialists and quality control standards to ensure that every client ends up with a fantastic kitchen and an easy makeover experience. No one has more experience providing top-quality kitchen renovations and makeovers using just-the-right 2-pot lacquer colours and fashionable yet durable products.

Let kitchenmakeover.co.nz help you get value for money and an amazing looking kitchen!
