Kitchen / June 9, 2018 / Richard Odilon.
Given how many different kitchen styles there are to choose from, it can be almost impossible to hone in on just one, which is why budget can be used as a deciding factor. By properly assessing how much can reasonably be spent, certain aesthetics will be instantly off the table, leaving a smaller variety of styles to choose between.
A lot of people like to think that they can save a serious amount of money during a kitchen renovation, by fitting the entire installation themselves. Yes, in theory, a built-in kitchen is merely a series of flat-pack style furniture, but when fettling and small adjustments are necessary, having a professional team that can simply do whatever is necessary, without worrying a client, is worth its weight in gold. Enthusiastic DIY-ers might fancy having a go and that's all very well and good, but if the overall budget can include a fitting team, it's definitely worth investing in one.
Wooden worktops are also greatly encouraged for country kitchens, but do keep in mind that wood always requires a little more maintenance that other materials. Even the tiniest of spill needs to be cleaned immediately, not to mention regular oiling to keep those wooden surfaces looking fresh and new. A quick sand and polish is ideal for removing everyday scratches and dents.
We’ve already discussed the popularity of neutral colours for cabinetry and benchtops but there is also a trend towards adding a point of difference through statement features in the kitchen. This could be through bold colours or interesting patterns in the splashbacks or the use of colourful vases or floral arrangements. Mirrored splashbacks are another popular feature which has the added advantage of adding the feeling of space.
