Whether you’re interested in making your existing kitchen more functional or simply need a full refresh, embarking on a kitchen redesign can be an exciting yet daunting process.
Despite the walls that might need to be knocked down and flooring that might need to be ripped out, there’s something so satisfying in watching how your outdated kitchen gets transformed into one of form and function.

Before you get straight into the renovation, we’ve put together some important factors to consider when you start your design journey.

Cost = Investment
Your kitchen renovation might be pricey, but it’s an investment you will continue to get returns from. A kitchen renovation also happens to be one of the wisest investments you can make in your home.

There are fewer rules than you think
Despite what you see on TV shows, renovated kitchens don’t need to be sparkling white and to all four corners of your home. Your kitchen can be however YOU want it to be. Whether you’re after double islands, blue cabinets, or ceiling-high splashbacks, our designers will ensure you get the best design for your needs.

You don’t need to tear it down
More often than not, you don’t need to tear down walls for your kitchen renovation. If there are any components in your kitchen that you love, or that don’t need updating, keep them. Just because you’re doing a remodel, doesn’t mean everything needs to come out.

Never cut corners
Even with a limited budget, one thing you should never do is cut corners. We understand everyone is trying to save here and there, but the last thing you want is someone who doesn’t do what you’ve hired them to do.

Materials come first
Materials, especially cabinetry, form the foundation of your kitchen. Invest in this before the finishes and extras that you can always add at a later stage.

You don’t have to DIY
Kitchen design is far more complex than it seems. It goes beyond choosing colours and styles. Our expert designers across the country are here to make the journey seamless while sticking to your wants, needs, and budget.
