Your kitchen is the heart of your home. It is the place where warm meals are made – to feed your body, mind and soul. Arguably, the fondest memories of home can be said to be lived out in the kitchen. For this reason, kitchen remodelling is often one of the main considerations for home owners – be it new or old. Here at Finch Construction, a Kitchen Renovations specialist based in Adelaide, we take great pride in working closely with all our clients to create a stylish and functional high quality renovation that will embody your personal taste, lifestyle and future plans. To help you get started on this journey, we have a guide to building your dream kitchen.
Identify your Design Goals and Set a Budget
Before you look at grand designs and kitchen showrooms, it is important to consider how much you are willing to spend on your kitchen remodelling project. It is also important to consider your requirements for your remodel. To help you come up with these answers, list out the following:
• What you must have in the kitchen (non-negotiables)
• What you’d like to have in the kitchen (negotiable features)
• What your feasible budget is
This will help you understand what is feasible and best identify where to prioritise your money on. When thinking about what you must have, consider how you or your family will use your kitchen and what functions, appliances or features will benefit you most. Take into account not only your current lifestyle, but consider the upcoming phases of life you will possibly enter into. Your kitchen will grow with you and your family, so make sure that your kitchen remodelling will best serve you now and where you’ll be a few years down the road.
Think about Design Preferences
Once you have an idea on what to include in your new kitchen, now it is time to think about the design aspects. This is the fun bit where you get to decide on your preferred style, colour palette, types of joinery and even tiling options. Consider if you prefer your kitchen to look and feel more modern or would like to go with a timeless, classic look.
The size of your kitchen is also an important aspect for consideration when choosing the type of tiles and colour scheme for the area. If you have a smaller kitchen space, look to see if you can include or expand your kitchen countertop to seamlessly blend with existing kitchen features to maximise efficiency and style.
If you have a larger space, consider if you can accommodate for kitchen islands to be placed as your kitchen’s focal point, while creating a natural flow into your home’s living space. This will allow for integration of living and dining for both lifestyle and potential resale purposes in the long run.
Select Your Appliances
Selecting your kitchen appliances is one of the most important steps in your kitchen remodelling. While style and design are important, functionality is key. Selecting your appliances at the initial stage of your remodelling project will allow for them to be accounted for in the design plan itself. Be it wall ovens, free standing range hood over your kitchen island bench, or more.
Hire the Professionals
From planning to designing to building your dream kitchen, this is no easy feat. Hiring a professional kitchen installations and renovations expert to make sure the job gets done correctly could not only save you time but cost in the long run. You will want to avoid spending thousands on reworking works that aren’t properly fitted because of the lack of skills or experience. Planning and building your dream kitchen should be exciting, not difficult.
