Set your budget
Whether you’ve got a big family or live on your own, chances are the kitchen is the busiest room in your home. But renovating your kitchen doesn’t always mean rebuilding from scratch. Before you start planning your project, work out exactly how much money you have to spend and do your best to stick to it. It’s also a good idea to put aside 10 per cent of your budget for unforeseen problems.
Choose your kitchen cabinets and hardware
Kaboodle kitchens have a wide range of cabinets, accessories, doors, panels and benchtops to consider. You could even start by replacing cabinets first and build your kitchen over time, which means you can spread the cost over a longer period of time.
Better yet, if you already have kaboodle cabinets installed in your kitchen, it may be a case of simply updating the doors and panels with a new colour. Some smaller changes include replacing handles, upgrading hardware, or even installing a new benchtop may be enough to update your kitchen. You’ll be surprised at how these minor changes will completely change the look and feel of your existing space.
Take it a step further: other renovation ideas
As well as new cabinetry and benchtops, there are plenty of other changes you can make to refresh your kitchen:
- Give your walls an update. Applying a fresh coat of paint can go a long way!
- Update your kitchen splashback. If you have a glass or acrylic splashback, this will be a little easier to update than tiles. However, if you’re determined to rip out tiles, you could always contact a local qualified tradesman for a quote.
- Try some new lights. A feature pendant light or cluster of lights can act as a focal point in a room.
