A Modern Kitchen With White Cabinets In Perth

You’ve been waiting and waiting since you purchased your home. Each day you make dinner and wish for change. You’re tired of hoping and waiting. You need a new kitchen now! The only thing standing in your way is the price tag. Kitchen renovations are not cheap in Perth, especially if you want the best of the best. How do you remodel your kitchen on a tight budget? There are a few great tips that can cut costs, while still giving you a beautiful final product.


  1. Flat pack kitchen

Flat packs might be the stuff of nightmares for some, but for others, it is a budget life-saver. Cabinets are a kitchen essential and also a money pit. The cost can add up very quickly if you choose custom cabinets. You can get the same customisation options and made-to-measure cabinets with flat pack kitchens in Perth. Choose your colours, styles, and cabinet types. Submit your measurements. Assemble! For a fraction of the cost, you can have beautiful, quality cabinets with flat packs.

Because of the quick turnaround time on orders, you also cut weeks of your reno timeline, and we all know that time is money. At eKitchens, we try to make all kitchen renovations as easy and fast as possible. If you want to save even more time or maybe just aren’t thrilled with the thought of DIY, we can even assemble and deliver your flat pack cabinets for you.


  1. Upgrade existing cabinets and benchtop

Don’t have the cash to buy all new cabinets? By simply refreshing your existing cabinetry, you can breathe new life into your kitchen and make it feel like a completely different space. New handles and hardware can instantly alter the look of any cabinets. New doors will do even more to change the space and can provide a splash of colour or texture. If you want to add some luxury elements, a new benchtop can do wonders to elevate a kitchen. Even just one of these changes can be enough to revitalise your kitchen.


  1. Lighting

Often times we tend to set and forget when it comes to lighting in our homes. Whatever was there before is what stays. Lighting can actually make a huge difference in the feeling and functionality of a room. In a kitchen, practical light is doubly as important for safety reasons. You need to be able to use a knife without squinting to see what you’re cutting, and you have to move efficiently through the space without fear of tripping or hitting anything. Ensure that you have lighting that doesn’t create annoying shadows and that lights all workspaces.


  1. Painting and wall treatments

You’ve got new lights and beautiful new flat pack cabinets. Don’t let you walls bring it all down. A fresh coat of paint will lift up the room and give it a touch of finish. A new splashback is another way to change the look of your kitchen. There are plenty of budget options, such as tiles or laminate. The colour and design choices are endless.
