Kitchen makeover or full kitchen renovation?

Major kitchen renovations often happen once every decade, but there are a few makeovers in between. Assess your current space first, then decide whether you need a simple makeover or a full-blown renovation. 

Simple kitchen makeovers include changing or updating the following basics: 

  • splashback
  • benchtops
  • cabinet fronts and handles
  • sink and tapware
  • paint
  • flooring material
  • light fixtures

Consider switching to energy-saving appliances too. Kitchen appliances have a life span, often between 9-15 years. So, buy new appliances and replace the old ones to save time and money and add more function to your kitchen.

Update your kitchen floor

Your kitchen endures heavy foot traffic every single day. Change your floors when you see signs of deterioration already!

When choosing a new kitchen floor material, look for the following qualities:

  • durable
  • low-maintenance
  • waterproof
  • safe and non-slip
  • comfortable under foot
  • suited to the interior styling you want to pull off
