The kitchen is the heart of the home, and it’s always a good time to update and upgrade it. Whether you want to renovate your kitchen as a personal project or as preparation for putting your house out in the market, an old kitchen is nothing to rave about.
That said, there are so many moving parts in a kitchen that it’s hard to even begin planning. If you’re really excited to start your kitchen renovation but don’t know where to start, here are three ideas that could get the ball rolling.
A simple and easy-to-do upgrade is to replace old appliances in your kitchen. From the gas range to the microwave, if you haven’t replaced them in more than five years, you’ll be surprised at how many choices you will have now, not only in terms of appliance function but in colours, designs and materials.
Replace old benchtop
Kitchen benchtops are often the star of the room. Changing it will make a big impact on your kitchen, says a specialist from Prestige Bench Top Limited. There are so many materials to choose from depending on your budget. Ceramic and solid concrete are the more popular ones in recent years but they are also expensive. Consider going the natural stone route and choose granite or marble for a classic look.
Re-tile the whole kitchen
The kitchen is probably one of the most-used rooms in your home. A lot of walking and accidental spills can weaken the tile requiring a re-tile every few years. Getting a contractor to do it for you is probably the simplest way to get this done – there’s just too much risk of something going wrong and requiring a repeat job. If you’re handy enough, though, you can save a lot of money!
Your kitchen needs an update but it doesn’t have to be a complete overhaul. Consider one of these small projects to give your kitchen new life.
