Answers to your home renovation questions
At Salt Renovations we understand it’s important that you find the right team to help you achieve your renovation goals. We’ve put together some information on the most common questions we’re asked however, if you have any questions not answered here, please call our friendly team on 02 6163 1663 or send us an email.
Are your in-home consultations free?

No, we charge a small fee for our initial consultations. This allows us to spend sufficient time to understand your needs, provide expert advice, and consider the best solutions for your space and budget. Our comprehensive assessment includes a detailed project proposal outlining all costs and inclusions in your project and serves as the basis of your contract should you decide to proceed with our services.

How much will my renovation cost?
Renovation costs can vary depending on the scope of works and inclusions selected. Here are some ballpark figures for what you might need to allow in your budget (these are subject to change):

Standard Bathroom (no plumbing changes):
from $33,000* (plus GST)

Small Ensuite (no plumbing changes):
from $32,000* (plus GST)

Standard Kitchen (no plumbing changes):
from $33,000* (plus GST)

Laundry (no plumbing changes):
from $17,000 - $25,000* (plus GST)

Multi-room or full home renovation:
Pricing varies depending on scope of project.

* These figures do not include any allowance for prime cost items. For a bathroom renovation, allow between $10,000 to $15,000+ for your selections (prime cost Items). For a kitchen renovation, allow between $8,000 to $20,000+ for your selections (prime cost Items).
What is included in your fees?

Our fees include our specialist design service, full project management services and all trades and services (as per your proposal). Your project proposal will not include costs for your Prime Cost (PC) items such as tiles, taps, basin/sink, appliances and other fittings. Our designers can work with you to help ensure your product selections work with your budget and style preferences.

Can I live in my home during the renovations?

In most cases, it is possible to remain in your home during the renovation. However, the feasibility may vary depending on the scope and scale of your project. For smaller renovations or projects that can be completed in stages, living in your home is usually manageable. For larger-scale renovations that involve extensive construction and potential disruptions, it may be more convenient to temporarily move out for a short period. Our team will work closely with you to assess your specific needs and circumstances, providing guidance and recommendations to ensure the smoothest renovation experience possible.

How long will my renovation take?

The design process takes between 2 to 4 weeks depending on how quickly you are able to move through the selections process. The build stages differ depending on the project e.g. a kitchen or bathroom renovation would typically take 4 weeks to practical completion then another 2 weeks to total completion.

Do you offer partial renovations and revamps?

While we do not offer standalone partial kitchen or bathroom renovations, we can accommodate works such as extra painting, updating electrical requirements, installing cabinetry or adding new flooring as part of a larger renovation.

Can I do part of the renovation build myself?

We only offer comprehensive renovation services with full project management of all works undertaken. Whilst DIY videos make renovation look like a breeze, you risk exposure to hazardous materials, damaging adjoining rooms or compromising the finish of your space. By entrusting your project to our experienced team, you can have peace of mind knowing that every aspect of the renovation will be handled with expertise and precision.

Can you add an extension to my home?

No, our expertise lies in creating beautiful and functional interiors within the existing footprint of your home. By focusing on interior transformations, we deliver exceptional results, efficient project management, and meticulous attention to detail while ensuring compliance with industry regulations.

Can you renovate my third floor unit?

Due to various challenges such as limited parking, lack of skip bin placement, restricted access, and time inefficiencies, we do not currently offer renovation services for multi-level apartments.

What areas do you service?

Our office and design studio is based in Fyshwick, ACT. We service all suburbs in the ACT including Hall as well as Queanbeyan and Jerrabomberra. We periodically offer services in surrounding regional areas, please enquire for more information.
