Kitchen Renovations in Perth

The kitchen is one of the most important places in your home, and every kitchen is personal to the one who uses it. But if your kitchen is constructed without consideration of functionality or aesthetic, or maybe even that it just looks outdated and stale as compared to the new styles, it may be a good idea to think about starting to renovate your Perth kitchen. Not only will a remodelled kitchen be beautiful, you’ll also be encouraged to continuously use your new cooking area - they say practice makes perfect, and cooking more regularly instead of eating out will only make you a better cook! And while the process of starting your remodelling might seem daunting, it’s not as complicated as you think. Below are some things to consider as you begin the process to your new and improved kitchen!

  • Consider your current kitchen as it is now.

What this means is - what do you like about your current kitchen? What don’t you like? Maybe the drawers aren’t pulling out as nicely as before, but you like the way you’ve organised your cabinets. Or maybe you don’t like the layout of your kitchen. Maybe it’s too cramped and you often hit your elbow on the fridge door or a wall while preparing your meals on the counter. Perhaps you would like to keep little appliances like your microwave, or toaster, in their own respective spaces, out of sight and therefore providing you with more counter space. Little things like this are important to consider when planning to change up your area. Keep what you like, and alter what you don’t! This is really what matters when remodelling your kitchen, because what good would it be to have a beautiful new area if the same irritating problems remain?

  • Measure your appliances, and plan the layout of your kitchen.

It’s always important to figure out the dimensions of your appliances, so that you can then plan a layout that will fit all of your freestanding electronics, especially if you have a small kitchen space. If you would like to fully utilise the area for storage space and want to put a cabinet on top of your refrigerator, for example, don’t forget to measure the height of the appliance to make sure that it will fit. These differing measurements will also affect the types of cabinetry that you will be using, so don’t skip this step before planning your kitchen, be it with the services of a kitchen designer or with online planning tools.
