You know what we say about kitchens! They’re the heart of the home, but kitchen renovation costs can really add up if you’re not careful! We’re sharing our kitchen renovation ideas to ensure you have a space that feels dreamy and personal to you, but doesn’t get you into trouble financially!
Top quality, durable materials
We always recommend investing in your kitchen cabinetry. Cabinets are the most impactful element of the kitchen, and beautiful cabinets can elevate your entire kitchen remodel. While some people might look at quality materials as a luxury, we see them as a money saver. Yes, you could buy cheaper materials and save some money up front. But if you have to replace your cabinetry doors after just a few years, how much money have you really saved by going cheap?
Your cabinet hardware is the jewellery of your kitchen. It will make a bigger statement than you realize. They’re the detail that makes the space feel elegant and elevates the design. Adding a few high-quality pieces is the perfect finishing touch. You're going to put your hands on your cabinet hardware every day, so look for materials that have a nice touch like polished nickel or soft satin brass. Both finishes can fit into any kitchen style from traditional to contemporary. Splurge for the best hardware you can find. It will stand up to daily use and abuse and keep looking great for years.
Countertops are a worthy investment for obvious reasons, it’s a surface that you see and use every day. Not only do they take up a lot of space, but they’re functional. If it’s a cheap material it will likely look dated quickly and won’t be a quality that will last! Moreover, a fine countertop can single-handedly up the glamour quotient of your kitchen. So don’t make any compromises when it comes to countertop material. Pick a material that is both sturdy and appeals to your aesthetics.
Sustainability is the need of the hour, and thus, energy-efficient appliances will help you do your bit for the environment. However, there is a totally selfish reason to buy efficient appliances; they cut down your electricity will every month! These appliances, though expensive, are a one-time investment that gives you returns month-on-month.
