FAQ - About a renovation?

Depending on design selections and finishes, kitchens can be installed between 3 to 5 weeks from finalising selection options and appliance model numbers.

Yes, we remove and dispose of your old kitchen.

We recommend allowing 2 days as a guide. Depending on design features, normally your old kitchen is removed and any services (plumbing and electrical) that require changes are attended to. We can then set to work installing your new custom-built Sir Lancelot’s kitchen. If you have chosen stone bench tops, we recommend allowing a further 7 - 10 days depending on selections made.
