Perth’s most experienced Kitchen Renovations
Redoing your kitchen can be both necessary and enjoyable. Think about how often you use your kitchen – for food preparation, for entertainment, for gatherings of family and friends. Because many of us use our kitchens so much, it only follows that this is a room in the house that many want to take pleasure in.
What’s more, a beautiful and functional kitchen will only serve to increase the resale value of your house. Think about when you are buying or renting – the kitchen is one of the first things you look at in judging your dream home! So, whether you are looking to up your property value or just wanting to enjoy your space even more, custom kitchen renovations are the way to go. Keep reading for an all-you-need-to-know guide on custom kitchens, how to go about them, and what important things there are to consider.

Your Guide to Custom Kitchen Renovations
Think about the must-haves
The first step when renovating your kitchen is to think about your must-haves. Ask yourself what the essentials are. Of course, these essentials will differ from household to household. So, on top of this, you may also ask yourself what kind of functions you and your family cannot go without.
Functionality and the clever use of the space you have to work with is key in this regard. Your new kitchen and joinery should all serve a purpose that is tailored to the needs that you (or a buyer) may have. Keeping the must-haves in mind, you can really design and plan the perfect kitchen! Consider visiting a kitchen showroom to generate a checklist of all these must-have items for your kitchen renovation.
Set the budget for your new kitchen
Another thing you need to do is set your budget. It’s all very well and good to have a dream kitchen design in mind, but you need to work according to what you can afford and are willing to pay. Setting a budget for yourself is crucial to avoid any nasty surprises after you’ve started renovating.
Whether you are remodelling independently or making use of a contractor, your budget must be one of the first things you consider. You may even want to get a quote for your dream kitchen from a renovation business with experience and work from there! Keep thinking about your practical must-haves when setting this budget – you may find that some needs far outweigh others.
Try to set a budget with a little bit of wiggle room and do as much research as possible into the costs of high-quality appliances and new materials before even attempting to begin your kitchen renovation. This kind of planning can really help you out in the long run.
Bring in the renovation professionals
Because must-haves and budgets are so vital, it may be a good idea to bring in the people who know exactly what they’re doing. Whether you are looking for help in your design, setting your budget, or a totally hands-off experience, there is a business out there for you!
You may also consider working closely with the professional team you hire to install your kitchen and joinery in order to get the very best results. Either way, a professional can truly help you to achieve your dream kitchen and to up the value of your home. Obtaining a quote at the start is a great way to see what you can and can’t afford in terms of both professional assistance as well as the overall result.
Don’t get discouraged if your kitchen design doesn’t end up being exactly the way you pictured it either. You may well find that a professional’s touch will end up producing a fantastic, high-quality result for your new kitchen.
Custom design time
Time is also a huge factor when it comes to kitchen remodelling. You have to think about the time it will take to do everything: researching, planning, designing, and executing. As such, a schedule is also extremely important.
Set aside certain amounts of time for each stage of the process and try not to waver too much from this plan. This is especially significant in the case of custom kitchen renovations, as your personal input and design preferences will affect the outcome and time it takes to implement each stage.
Again, thinking about the rest of the aspects in this guide (must-haves, budgets, and assistance from a professional) will help you to manage your time effectively and execute your new kitchen design perfectly. Remember, this is a renovation of your home and each stage should be tailored to meet your needs and desires to the best of your contractor’s ability.
Considerations with a Kitchen Renovation
The top things to look for in the perfect kitchen are functionality and accessibility, layout, and, more often than not, aesthetics.
Functionality and Accessibility
Remember to keep things like the functionality of plumbing points and electrical outlets in mind. Where is the best place to install these? How will the rest of your custom-made kitchen be set out accordingly and in an easy-to-access fashion? How will cabinets and benchtops serve to work alongside your appliances?
Functionality and accessibility are key. You will always enjoy a room more if it serves its purpose perfectly and allows you to move with ease and comfort.
This brings us to the layout of the room, and the space you have to work with. The dream kitchen you have in mind may not work with the way that the room is set out, and you may have to tweak the design layout to fit in with it. This may be the very reason you are opting to renovate your kitchen in the first place!
Remember that being realistic about your space will allow for a layout that works well to follow suit. For example, you may want ample cabinet space. Placing these cabinets beneath or above your benchtops can help to free up some room and, ultimately, improve upon the layout of your new kitchen installation.
While functionality and management of space are indeed key, nobody wants a kitchen that doesn’t make them feel at home! We often entertain in our kitchens, gather in them, or spend large amounts of time in them. As such, many of us want to make sure that our kitchens and joinery are as beautiful as they are practical.
Joinery, flooring, lighting, and choice of appliances and materials all make up the aesthetics of a kitchen. It is essential to consider these things in line with the above two considerations so that your newly renovated, custom-made kitchen really does become the whole package: something beautifully designed while perfectly functional.
