Predictably, the main wear and tear in most kitchens in Balwyn is on the work surfaces and kitchen cabinets. For that reason, just changing those, without a major redesign of the kitchen itself, can really give a kitchen a new lease of life. If you’re considering undertaking such a project, it should be possible to keep your existing appliances – these represent such a major investment, and quality appliances should last for years.
This may limit the possibility of significantly changing the layout of your kitchen, unless the appliances and associated fixtures and connections can’t be moved. Of course, moving appliances and the fixtures and fittings associated with them will mean more disruption in your kitchen, and require the involvement of more trades in the remodelling. The flooring around/under the appliances may also be affected, as will the walls and decor – tiles or splashbacks for example. Moving a cooker hood could also have a knock-on effect, if there are wall fixtures involved, leaving marks and/or holes in the walls.
All of that being said, with some thought and proper design, it should be possible to reconfigure your space, even if the appliances have to remain in situ. Of course if the appliances to be used are integrated units, then it’s very important to plan for that in choosing dimensions and style of cabinets and doors.
If change is what you’re after, and your budget is limited, even a small-scale project such as changing your cabinets, and counters, can have a big impact. Updating and upgrading your kitchen lighting will also enhance any changes you do make. In terms of functionality, there are many updated storage options that will make your kitchen a more pleasant and convenient workspace. Those small changes can have a big impact.
