Why Invest in your Kitchen

The kitchen has become one of the most important rooms in the home. Contemporary design has brought it out from behind closed doors and into open-plan-living meaning it needs to be ‘furnished’ not just built.

If you think about it, your kitchen is the hub of the home, for family time and entertaining. It should be fitted out to be both functional and aesthetically in harmony with the rest of your house. When building, 1/3 of the building costs should be reflected in your kitchen and bathrooms. When selling, your buyer expects to see this and more. They want to see one third of your asking price reflected in these rooms. A kitchen is one of the most expensive rooms in the home. It is unlikely you will redo your kitchen more than once in a particular dwelling. It is vital that when you take on this project that you see it as an investment in your home and your future ability to sell it on and realise your investment. Most people underestimate the cost of a good kitchen.

Remember, the better the quality of the finishes and hardware the more expensive the project. Rather save up and ensure you have the budget to do the work properly with a reputable company using the best quality products for your budget.
