One of our most popular renovation jobs that our builders carry out throughout Brisbane at Find-A-Builder are the ever-popular kitchen renovations. There are many different ways to revamp the kitchen area that homeowners can take advantage of, and today’s news article looks at some of the different ways a tired and tatty kitchen can be refreshed and revitalised. With just a few changes you can vastly improve the look, feel and functionality feel or your worn and dated looking kitchen to suit your modern lifestyle and taste preferences.
Refurbish tired tiles and worn flooring
That floral patterned linoleum floor looked great back in the 70s, but has since faded and the orange and brown colour palette now screams ‘headache’ like never before. Overhauling the flooring with hard wearing materials which are properly sealed is a must in a kitchen area, due to spillages and high foot traffic. Popular flooring surfaces for the kitchen include ceramic or stone tiles, natural stone and wood. Tiled splashback areas above sinks and stoves also benefit from a refresh since after years of contact with, water, steam, heat and oil can begin to discolour and wear.
Restore benches, countertops, cupboards and cabinets
Major and minor kitchen renovations usually always involve some form of improvement to the kitchens surfaces or inbuilt fixtures. Sometimes a complete overhaul is needed with new and additional fittings to give more storage space. Other times the countertops might simply benefit from a new finish, coating or covering. Existing cupboards fixtures can also receive a new lease of life by replacing doors and handle fittings to bring a new look and feel. Important considerations to make include the storage and bench space you are likely to need. If you are currently limited space-wise looking at reformatting your kitchen or adding higher or deeper cupboards is often worthwhile. Other popular renovations include raising a section of the countertop to make a bar-like area complete with bar stools.
Renew taps, sinks and plumbing
Always wanted a double sink, space for a dishwasher, or even a garbage disposal unit? The renovation stage is a perfect opportunity to look at the plumbing fittings and consider changing to a more water efficient and aesthetic units.
