Kitchens, Bathrooms, Fitted Wardobes, Entertainment Units, Home Office, Laundry

There are many considerations when embarking on a renovation, take time to ask these questions.
Think about why you are renovating – is it for resale or for the long term?

Ask questions of the designer &/or the company’s experience

What are the lead times on cabinetry, stone bench tops?

What does the proposal include?
Ideally it should include check measure, removal of old kitchen, supply & installation of cabinets, internal fittings, benchtop supply & installation, wiring, plumbing, plaster patching & recornicing, splashbacks, rubbish removal.

Think about what you dislike about your existing kitchen

– is the lack of storage and bench space a challenge?
– the footprint just doesn’t work
– nowhere to eat

What you do love about your existing kitchen?
– light, airy
– wall oven

Make a wish list for your new kitchen
These may/may not all be possible but will help your designer understand your needs and wants.  For example:-
– island bar
– wall oven or two ovens
– corner drawers
– workspace for a computer/homework/pay the bills
– access to outside entertaining area
– walk in pantry
– incorporate a laundry
– more storage
– more benchspace

If more storage is a wish, think about what you want to store
– small appliances (keep the biggest one in mind)
– pots/pans
– bakeware & trays
– spices
– wine / alcohol
– cook books
– pantry items

Collect tear sheets from design and kitchen magazines, you will be surprised how a trend emerges

Make sure the design firm is qualified to do what they say they can

Ask about the warranty and after sales service
