How much does it cost to renovate a kitchen
There are a number of elements to consider when budgeting for a kitchen for your home. Such things as materials, appliances, and special features can dramatically increase the price of your kitchen.
The centre of your home is unmistakably the kitchen. This is where your family will spend a great deal of their time. You may also want to include a living area and an alfresco area off the kitchen so that when you are socialising with friends and family you will still be part of the festivities while you are stuck in the kitchen whipping up the evening meals.
A good functional design with plenty of bench space for food preparation is a must. It is always handy to have a bench top with work space close to the fridge and pantry. It is also a good idea to locate the sink and dishwasher in the same bench as this saves money on plumbing installed at the same time. Make sure kitchen cabinets allow a descent air gap around the fridge as it needs good ventilation to work efficiently.
The best way to price your kitchen is to look at some examples from home magazines and come up with three scenarios that you think are normal, top-end, and luxury finishes. Once you have done this list, contact your local home builder to discuss these options and through their expertise are able to give your prices and recommendations based on your choices.
