Renovation Questions

What is the Unique Design story?

Unique Design started over 20 years ago as Unique Kitchens with a showroom in Stones Corner. We opened our showroom in Clayfield in 2004 and after branching into bathroom renovations in 2010, we decided to change our name to Unique Design. In our time we have successfully completed 1,000's of beautiful kitchen and bathroom renovations in the Brisbane and surrounding areas.

What is the process of getting a Kitchen or Bathroom Quote?

We offer a free in home consultation and design at a mutually agreeable time with our dedicated, highly trained designers. We will visit your home and together we will create a beautiful and functional design that best suits your needs. We then will use our state of the art CAD software back at our showroom to make your dream renovation come to life. We will price it according to the materials you select and in line with your budgetary requirements. We will give you a comprehensive quote, including trade work, floor plans, elevations and 3D images to help you be better informed when you make your decision to purchase. There are no hidden surprises when you receive a quote from Unique Design.

How much does a Kitchen or Bathroom renovation cost?

The cost of a Kitchen or Bathroom varies considerably due to the complexity of the job and the materials involved. Whilst it is difficult to give a price estimate, as a guide, we believe the kitchen or bathroom should represent approximately 3% to 3.5% of the value of the property. This of course can vary due to the purpose of the renovation, be it for resale purposes, rental or to live in for the next 10 years. It is of course up to the client to decide how much they want to spend on their renovation, but be assured that we'll be there to give the best professional advice on how to get the maximum benefit for your investment.

Where do you manufacture and where are your products from?

We custom make all our cabinetry locally in Brisbane. All our cabinets are made using environmentally friendly 16mm thick high-quality, moisture resistant particleboard with a white melamine surface. The reconstituted wood fibre used to manufacture this board are sourced from sustainable FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified Australian pine plantations. They are low formaldehyde products (starting at E0) which helps to improve indoor air quality.
All other products for our kitchens and bathrooms are almost exclusively European made, such as benchtops and soft close drawer and door runners. This ensures that your renovation is fitted with products of the highest standard.

Is Unique Design QBCC Licenced?

Yes we are. Our licence class is Builder restricted to Kitchen, Bathroom & Laundry Installations. Our company name is Unique Design Queensland Pty Ltd. Our licence number is 1199184.
Bathrooms -We work in conjunction with Express Custom Services (QBCC Lic No: 1172044) who will provide complete project management and installation of your new bathroom to ensure your renovation is completed to the highest standard. Your contract for the bathroom will be with them. They pay all trades, product etc. and the QBCC insurance.
Queensland Government mandated QBCC Home Warranty Insurance is lodged on every renovation we quote over $3,300 for your piece of mind.
It may protect you where:
  • a licensed builder does not complete the contracted residential construction work and you have terminated the contract
  • the contractor fails to rectify defective work
  • the building suffers from subsidence or settlement.
Please ensure that any other company you ask to quote has the appropriate licence to do your job and is prepared to lodge QBCC insurance on your behalf.
