When it’s time to renovate your kitchen, you might feel a little overwhelmed about where exactly you should start. There are so many great options out there today, but which one is the best?

The two options that people weigh up is whether to use a major kitchen retailer or a cabinet maker to help them achieve their dream kitchen, so we’re here to show how they compare. With a better understanding of the services that each provide you’ll have a clear picture of who can help you create the space your home deserves.

Design and Consultation

People usually like some guidance when it comes to designing or renovating a space in their home, and this is one area where a major kitchen retailer has others beat. They have extensive showrooms that can not only show you what your kitchen will look like but also let you touch and test out the materials and appliances that will be used. Zesta Kitchen has access to the latest trends and styles in kitchens and brings European inspiration back to Melbourne for you to enjoy.Their showrooms are a perfect example of this inspiration.

Delivery of Materials

Depending on your cabinet maker, it is likely the materials will take a long time to make and arrive later down the track. Working with a major kitchen retailer like Zesta Kitchens with manufacturing based in Melbourne gives you On-Time Kitchen delivery. They understand quality and will deliver in prime condition on the scheduled time ready for installation.

Installation and Construction

The installation process can be a stressful time for homeowners, as it might seem like their kitchen dreams will never come to fruition. Working with a major retailer like Zesta Kitchens means you have a team of tradespeople on the job, and plenty more waiting as a backup should anything go wrong. Relying on just one cabinet maker to complete your kitchen takes time and will cause you problems if they happen to get sick or are unable to come to work.


If your main concern is the cost when it comes to renovating your kitchen, you want to go with the option that’s affordable but still retains its high quality. Because Zesta Kitchens has ample supplies of kitchen materials, we can purchase superior materials at lower prices and pass these low costs onto you. cabinet makers are not a cheaper alternative due to the individual nature of making up every item, they will usually work longer on the job and end up costing a lot more than a dedicated and experienced team.


Wording along the lines of 10 year guarantee on quality and easy replacement or adding to kitchen should you need at any time. This is not the case with cabinet makers.
