Kitchens are one of the areas of the house that receive the highest use, and also the most foot traffic. Over times these areas can become worn and dated faster than other areas of the house, so it’s no surprise that a little attention will go a long way. For your next kitchen renovation contact Find-a-builder. We are the Brisbane trade team who supply the best tradesmen in the business and today we share 4 areas to refurbish in your kitchen to make a big impact in both functionality and style.
1) Countertops and Benches
Homeowners wanting to replace their kitchen benches or create more surface area have a range of materials to choose from including laminate, stainless steel, and solid surface countertops. Laminate is generally the most affordable option and is composed of different layers, while solid surfaces benches like Avonite are made with one material throughout and generally middle range in terms of price. Classy stone and stainless steel surfaces make up the top end choices for kitchen surfaces. Most of these surfaces are available in a range of colours to complement existing décor and colour schemes.
Whether you stick with traditional white tiles, or go for something a little bit more adventurous, renovated splashbacks including glass and acrylic materials can add the ‘wow’ factor and make a huge difference when creating contemporary, stylish kitchen. Since splashback areas can appear worn and even grubby over time, refreshing this area with new easy clean and modern options will a big impact in terms of the looks of your kitchen.
3) Tiles and Flooring
New flooring options can go a long way to bring your kitchen into the 21st century, with a range of different options available depending on budget. When looking to renovate flooring it pays to invest in durable, easy clean and moisture resistant surfaces in this highly used area of the home. Other considerations include the underfoot comfort of the flooring and of course the looks and style you are looking to achieve. Hardwood flooring, laminate and tiles are the most popular flooring options used in kitchens.
4) Cabinets and Fittings
Kitchen cabinets represent a fantastic opportunity to increase the functionality of your kitchen with cupboards that are deeper, have more shelves, or simply including fittings with more drawers. If you are happy with your existing layout and space, replacing doors and handles instead of entire fixtures can go a long way to overhaul the appearance of a kitchen for a fraction of the cost of entirely new cabinets. Other options for kitchen fittings include deep large drawers for oversized pots and pans, and above-stove exhaust fans installed above the cooktop.
