What To Look For When It Comes
To Getting Modern Kitchen Makeovers
So you’ve just opened your favourite home renovation magazine, and are flicking through the modern kitchen makeovers section for inspiration. Perhaps you’ve been looking at getting your kitchen renovated for some time, but you’re not sure what style or design will best suit your space. Perhaps you have a design in mind, but are not sure what kitchen renovation company to go with.
Whatever the case, we’ve broken down some of the key things to look for when it comes to modern kitchen makeovers, so you can get the dream kitchen you’ve always wanted!
Keep It Consistent
One of the major rules when it comes to modern kitchen makeovers is to keep the design consistent with the rest of your home.
For example, if you’re living in a Queenslander style home with dark wood floorboards, then chances are you’re not going to want to go with a sleek design that won’t suit the look and feel of the rest of your home. You may opt for a modern design still, but one that utilises more natural components, such as natural looking tiles or glass, stone bench tops, stainless steel appliances and cream walls to offset the dark flooring in other parts of the house, as an example.
If your home is spacious and airy, you want your kitchen to feel spacious and airy as well. If your home has a sleek, clean inner-city feel, you’ll want your kitchen to emanate this aesthetic.
All of this is especially important to consider if you plan to sell your home at any point in the future. You want to be sure that the time and money spent on modern kitchen makeovers is going to maximise the value of your property and appeal to potential buyers long-term.
Make Sure It’s Practical
Yes, aesthetic is very important when it comes to modern kitchen makeovers, but so is functional design. In fact, too many people emphasise the aesthetic, and forget about making the kitchen practical!
Remember, the kitchen is the heart of the home. When done right, you can get the best of both worlds; a sleek, modern looking kitchen that has the right aesthetic appeal, and is also completely functional.
We always recommend consulting an expert when it comes to the design and layout for modern kitchen makeovers. Why? Quite simply, an experienced designer can flag potential problem areas you may have overlooked, such as where the fridge is located, the height of the benchtops, where the cabinetry is located, or how ventilation is flowing.
Consult An Expert
With the rising popularity of so many home improvement shows, it’s easy enough to think that you can do your kitchen renovation yourself. While small jobs may be possible, here’s the danger… often, kitchen renovations require licensed experts, such as:
- Licensed Builders
- And more
Without the use of licensed, experienced professionals – you risk making major mistakes that could potentially cost you more time and money in fixer uppers long-term.
When you choose an experienced, licensed professional to work with, you know you’re fully covered for workmanship and the various moving parts.
