High quality kitchen renovations in Perth homes can easily increase the value and saleability of your property, as well as giving you a much better lifestyle in the bargain. The problem is finding an experienced kitchen designer to help you create the kitchen design of your dreams and stay within your budget.
Perth kitchen renovations and bathroom makeovers can set you back quite a bit of money, but if you ask for expert help right at the start, then you can be sure of not making any mistakes that might cost you even more money. A professional designer of kitchens can quickly recognise any potential problems that you might have missed and they know how to maximise space and storage.
To make sure that your kitchen designer knows exactly what you want from your kitchen, here are two easy steps for you to take, before picking up the phone.
STEP 1: Wish List: The best kitchen designs always start with a wish list. So make a short list of all the non-negotiable items or fixtures that you absolutely must have in your kitchen and bathroom designs. Try and keep this to 5 or less, otherwise your budget might not stretch to cover everything.
Then make another list of items or fixtures that you would really like in your kitchen design, but are willing to negotiate. For example, you might have a wine fridge on your non-negotiable list, but you realise that there simply isn’t the room in your home home without structural changes to the layout. The budget for your new kitchen may not stretch that far, so instead you opt for a pot filler from your second list and a built in espresso machine as well.
STEP 2: Ideas Board: Scour magazines, shops and online sites to find images, ideas, appliances, fixtures, colours, themes, flooring, counter tops and materials for renovating kitchens. All of these will come together to give your kitchen designer in Perth a clear understanding of what you do and don’t want in your kitchen renovation design.
An ideas board also makes it a lot easier to pull your own ideas together, because you might find that certain colours and patterns clash too much. For example, you might have your heart set on a lime green glass splashback and a light laminate flooring, but the pattern of the stone bench you really like, simply clashes and looks awful! When you collect samples of materials together, you can easily see whether they complement one another or whether they clash too much.
A wish list and an ideas board makes it so much easier to visualise how you want your new kitchen and bathroom renovation project in your home to look and is the best way to kick start your kitchen renovation in Perth.
