Facelifts by Modern Kitchens offers a more affordable renovation approach to update the design of your current kitchen. In essence, we work with what you already have and replace the parts that are letting your kitchen down.

Often enough, the underlying structure of an existing kitchen is sound and the layout is workable. But too often the design is tired, the drawers stuck, surfaces worn and colours dated.

Facelifts by Modern Kitchens is a service that leans on our extensive experience and resources to produce high-quality outcomes for a fraction of the cost of building new. Upgrades and replacements to your cabinetry and surfaces are informed by 40 years’ experience in custom cabinet design and installation.

We strive to be ahead of the competition in terms of quality. Modern Kitchens uses only the best to renovate your cabinets, shelves, wardrobes, drawers, and more; leaving them clean, refined and feeling brand new.

Doors & Drawers

After years of use, drawers often don’t slide as smoothly as they used to, doors don’t swing as easily, corners get chipped and paint begins to crack. Facelifts offer refurbishment or replacement of your cabinet doors or drawers, reviving the faces of your kitchen with fluid functionality.


Even the toughest handles wear down over time and need replacing, and design trends change with time. Facelifts offer an extensive range of options to replace your current drawer and door handles. From traditional to contemporary, we can help you choose the best solution for your renovated kitchen.


Are you looking to change the overall feel of your kitchen? Or perhaps everything needs a fresh and professional coat to bring it back to its new look?

With hundreds of colour options, textures and techniques, Facelifts can provide any colour and style change you could dream of.


Clean, high-quality, well-designed surfaces are the key to any top-end kitchen. 

Facelifts offers a comprehensive range of options for the replacement, upgrade or refurbishment of the surfaces in your kitchen.

Sink & Faucet

Leaks, low tap pressure, corrosion, and rough edges all result in a kitchen sink area feeling dirty and worn out.

Replace and upgrade your current sink area with Facelifts. Bundle packages are available to create a cohesive style at a more affordable price.


From understated tones to extroverted full-colour images, the kitchen splashback is the background to all your hard work.

They are far more robust than a painted wall, and much easier to clean. Set the scene with a custom splashback from Facelifts.
