Before you do anything, do your homework. Browse through kitchen showrooms, read kitchen design magazines, blogs and websites, speak to friends or family who have recently had their kitchen remodelled. Learn about what is available, the current trends and realistic budgets.
If you are leaving your new kitchen to the hands of professionals, ensure you shop around for not only a good price, but for someone with extensive experience and a good reputation. Ask to see examples of their previous work or consult past clients.
Many people with basic DIY skills have a go at the bulk of kitchen renovations themselves. With a fresh coat of paint, a striking yet affordable splash back, clever lighting and updating small details such as replacing an old faucet and cabinetry hardware, you can transform your kitchen with supplies from local kitchen showrooms or DIY depots.
