A kitchen renovation is a huge job. Think about it, you use your kitchen every single day, and an update won’t just make it easier to use, it will also make your home’s value increase too. So before you choose one of a hundred kitchen designs, pick up the hammer and start breaking down walls, you should keep these considerations in mind. 

Call the Professionals

Everyone loves DIY, but your kitchen is not something you can go without for long periods of time, and if you renovate it, you should do it right. So call the professionals at The Australian Kitchen Company. All you have to do is check out their kitchen renovation showroom, pick a design or combination of designs and they do the rest. This is the lowest risk, highest return option, so put the tools down, sit back and relax. 

Determine Your Budget

You don’t want an upgrade to make you go broke. So make sure you have a budget set in store before you even think about a renovation. This budget should have a set figure, and then you can decide how much wiggle room you can have, in case you go over. This will make you less likely to overspend and more likely to save a larger amount on your renovation. 

Figure Out a Timeframe

Right there with a strict budget, there should be a strict time frame. The reason for this is because you need your kitchen. Do you need to do the renovation within 2 weeks? Or can you stretch to 8 weeks? There’s a lot of planning involved in renovating a kitchen, and by having a timeframe you can plan your remodel around your needs and this reduces stress.

Plan Kitchen Appliances

When remodelling your kitchen, you don’t want to leave the appliances to last. If you do, you can run out of budget, or face unexpected costs and this can lead to you getting lower quality products, and this is not ideal. So make sure you consider the appliances, plan for them in your budget, and make sure they fit into your kitchen plan. Not in terms of style alone, but also in terms of size. This is important if you want built-in appliances.

Choose a Colour Scheme

It’s often thought that neutral colors work best, especially if you want to resale or lease the property after renovation. Bright kitchens, especially with white kitchen cabinets, are in high demand because they appeal to a variety of tastes and look clean. But, if you’re remodeling your kitchen because you want to change something, the color options are endless, and you can get creative.  

Use The Space

If you know exactly how to use the space you have, you can get the most out of it. This is especially true if you have a large family, want a certain aesthetic or have special needs. Once you know what you want from the space all you have to do is design around it. Some people want a butler’s pantry to hide the messy daily mess, others want space-saving appliances to make more space for the kids at breakfast. Some people may even want a built-in dog feeding space. Maybe you don’t have a lot of space and you really need to get creative. Regardless, when you consider the room you have to play in, it becomes easier to design. 

Now that you know what to avoid before you start renovating your kitchen, you can start designing, and before you know it, you’ll have the kitchen of your dreams.
