Wow, Im amazed at the reaction to my kitchen - thanks everyone! It was one of the three China companies on the first page of my link - I know I contacted all of them for quotes but after it was installed I let our builder retain the paperwork as he wanted to look into importing kitchens for his other clients and we werent going to buy another kitchen so let him have it. But its still important to do your research and find the one that has what you want. And as mentioned importing is not for everyone, if you havnt done it before it is a big risk and especially if you are dealing with an unknown non-english speaking company - luckily it paid off for me (I'll admit I was having second thoughts until it arrived) but I do have experience with shipping and it may not turn out well for everyone so just be aware it has to be a risk your wiling to take!

I did see that there is a sourcing agent listed now on the same page as my posted link, this would be a safer and easier option for anyone looking to buy their customised kitchen from overseas for the first time. Good luck!

Our kitchen reno was $85k, taking a worn French provincial look to sleek modern in a Victorian home with very high ceilings. Most went on quality cabinetry and bench tops (cement), which is to fit perfectly into Victorian corners and window edges etc, but additionally splurged on high end tap ware, under island lighting and a even a pot filler tap over the stove! Completely unnecessary but I did it anyway 😆

Thank you for this type of article and cost break down

Littlethommo- joinery looks great, love the dovetail joints with the ply - I would be happy with that as an exposed feature
