We all know how important a kitchen is to a home, and that’s probably why you’re taking the time to renovate it. But before you get started, there are some things you should keep in mind so you can plan a smooth kitchen makeover in Melbourne.
Do you really need a big reno?
Most people who think they need a big kitchen renovation, actually only need a partial one. By all means, if your budget allows for a brand-new kitchen, why not? But if you’re working within a stricter budget, a partial renovation is a great option. This involves maybe just changing cupboard doors and fixtures, or maybe even some new paint. It all depends on what’s worn out and what’s in good condition.
Do you need new appliances?
Again, for those who need to keep an eye out on their budget, it’s a great idea to just update all the failing appliances. If you want to do a full renovation, know your appliances before you start work because most cabinetry will have to work around the size of your appliances.
Actually, think about function!
It’s so easy to get carried away by the look and feel of your kitchen that you forget that you’ll actually need to use your kitchen. This means thinking of spaces to set things down near ovens and microwaves and space on either side of your appliances. You should also think about how much storage you need and consider smart storage options.
Think about power
Before any work gets started, you’re going to want to consider power points and where they’ll go. For example, if you’re low on space and your washer/dryer is going in the kitchen, you should make sure it has power points. If you know you like to watch tutorials on cooking, while you cook, having a dedicated power point for your devices may be wise too.
Make cleaning easy
To make life much easier on yourself down the line, consider making cleaning easier for yourself. You can do this with stainless steel surrounding your bin cabinets, and make sure your materials are easy to wipe clean and don’t stain. This takes a bit of research, so it’s best to start well before the reno begins.
