Remodelling Your Kitchen: Why It’s Important and the Process
The kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s where you cook, eat, and sometimes even spend time with friends and family. But it can get old after a few years or decades! When kitchen remodelling in Newcastle becomes necessary, several things to consider before deciding on an option that will work for you. The following blog post discusses what Newcastle kitchens renovations have to offer.
Budget and timeline constraints
Before starting any kitchen renovation, the most important thing to consider is the budget. How much can you afford to spend on the renovation? Remember that kitchen renovations can be expensive, but there are ways to save money without sacrificing quality.
Another important consideration is your timeline. If you need to have the kitchen finished by a specific date, consider planning the renovation.
Once you know how much money and time you have for the renovation, it’s time to start thinking about what you want from your kitchen. Do you need more counter space or storage space? Would a different layout work better for your needs? What kind of appliances do you want in your kitchen? Think about what aspects of your current kitchen need immediate attention.
Next, consider if you would like to keep the current layout or change it. You may also want to change just a tiny section of the layout and not necessarily the whole layout, or you would like to keep the layout and change other aspects of the design like wall colour, changing the tiles, etc.
Are there any structural changes that need to be made, such as removing a wall or adding an extension? Once you have answered these questions, you can start looking at kitchen designs in magazines and the internet to get some ideas. Take note of kitchens that appeal to you, and then take measurements of your kitchen to see how they could be adapted for your own home. You may also want to consider hiring a kitchen designer who can come up with some bespoke kitchen designs just for you.
Kitchen style – modern, traditional, rustic
You also have to think of the overall style you would like to have in the kitchen. Do you want a modern kitchen with sleek cupboards and appliances? A traditional kitchen with wooden cabinets and a farmhouse sink? Or a rustic kitchen with exposed brickwork and an AGA oven?
You could also do a modern kitchen with a few traditional aspects, Or a traditional kitchen with rustic finishes. Make sure to blend the styles well to all standout and look beautifully designed.
Storage space and appliances
Will new cabinets need to be built, or can they be added to the existing ones? If the cabinets are not enough, you could consider adding more or creating space for more. The cabinets could also be many, and you would like to open up some space.
Check for any appliances you may need to add or replace, or get repaired. If your sink is outdated, cracked, or doesn’t suit your style, you could switch it to a new one. Appliances such as dishwashers, oven, microwave and fridge may need maintenance. Appliances nowadays come in all shapes and sizes, so don’t be afraid to change them up a bit. If you have an old refrigerator or oven, consider buying something more modern that will suit the updated design.
Countertop material, flooring and colour scheme
One of the most important aspects of any kitchen renovation is the countertops, flooring and colour scheme. These take up the most space in the kitchen, and they are the first areas you notice when you walk into a kitchen. They are also the areas that touch your kitchen every single day. If you have a kitchen with old laminate countertops and tiles, replacing them will freshen up the look of your kitchen right away.
The most common countertops that most homeowners are going for are marble, granite, laminate, stainless steel. These have become popular because of the ease in cleaning them, low maintenance, stylish look and durability.
Wooden floors have become popular around Newcastle because of their natural look and the fact that they are timeless. If you have a kitchen with outdated linoleum or vinyl flooring, consider replacing it with hardwood floors for a fresh new look.
Picking the right colour scheme for your kitchen can be a real game-changer. You want to make sure that the colours you choose are cohesive with the rest of your home and that they will make your kitchen look stylish and updated.
Plumbing & Electrical work
In addition to all these tasks described above, there may be additional elements in your kitchen renovation, such as plumbing or electrical works. These must not be forgotten because they can cause severe problems if left unattended for too long. In some cases, it is best to get an electrician and a plumber on board from the early stages. They can help plan out certain aspects of how things should be done differently than before when renovations were carried out previously by other contractors who didn’t know what they were doing.
