OUR KITCHEN renovation Services
kitchen renovations MELBOURNE
Kitchens, like bathrooms, are one of the most used rooms of a home. In fact, many consider kitchens to be the heart of the home. This is especially true for open plan homes where the dining and living areas are extensions of the kitchen. For these reasons it doesn’t take long for a kitchen to start looking a bit drab and need an update.
Kitchens are also one of the rooms that can add a lot of value to your home. This means it is important to get your kitchen renovation right. It is especially important to plan your kitchen renovation carefully to make sure it is as functional as possible.

WHAT TO THINK ABOUT BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO RENOVATE YOUR KITCHEN
If you love your home but your kitchen is looking a bit dated and becoming cluttered, then it is time to think of renovating it. Alternatively, if you thinking of selling your home a full kitchen renovation or refresh is a great way to increase the value of your home.
Before you renovate your kitchen, here is a list of things you should think about before you start:
1. THINK ABOUT WHAT APPLIANCES YOU WANT
It is much easier to design a kitchen once you have chosen your appliances. Unfortunately, a lot of people do it the other way around. This can result in things like the fridge being too big for the space allocated.
In addition, you need to make sure the doors to appliances, when opened, don’t effect the flow of the kitchen. This is especially important for smaller kitchens.
2. WILL YOU HAVE TO MOVE OUT DURING THE KITCHEN RENOVATION?
Although in some ways it is easier to work around a kitchen renovation, as compared to a bathroom renovation, you may still want to move out. This is especially true for families as renovations can be messy and disruptive. However, if you are on a tight budget then you may choose to stay or only move out for short period of time.
3. WHAT IS YOUR BUDGET?
You need to plan your budget carefully. This includes planning for the unexpected. If you have a tight budget think about what you are happy to compromise on what is non negotiable. For example, if you love cooking then getting a high quality oven and stovetop may be at the top of your list of non negotiables.
4. HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT STORAGE REQUIREMENTS?
It doesn’t take long for kitchen benches to start looking cluttered. It is one of the reasons that butler pantries are so popular. However, if a butler pantry is not for you, make sure there are enough cupboards to store both appliances and food.
Your kitchen will function a lot more effectively if you have benches that are only used for food preparation.
5. WILL YOUR NEW KITCHEN FIT IN WITH THE STYLE OF THE REST OF YOUR HOME?
Most people want a sleek modern kitchen. However, you need to make sure the design of your new kitchen fits the overall style of your home. For example, if you have traditional Victorian, Federation or Edwardian style home you should think about incorporating some features that will enhance your home’s existing style.
