Auckland’s Finest Kitchen Renovations
Your kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s where you prepare food as well as a space where you chat over a cup of tea or coffee, relax, work, study and congregate with your family each morning and evening. A good kitchen is functional, durable and beautiful. This is something the team at I Build Solutions can help you achieve as part of our main home renovation service.
Many kitchen renovations involve getting cabinets and countertops made offsite by a third party and installed by specialist kitchen companies, which falls out of our scope of service. However, if you are getting a full home renovation, we can offer top quality kitchen remodelling and makeover services.
How to Approach Redesigning Your Kitchen
What makes a good kitchen functional? Making your way around it should be intuitive. When you turn to reach for a utensil, cup or plate or to put down a hot dish, you should instinctively find the surface or cupboard you need. Achieving this is all about putting a lot of thought into the design of the kitchen and your particular needs to ensure it’s an enjoyable and easy space to prepare food and drinks in.
A good kitchen also needs to be durable as like the bathroom, it is one of the most used and abused spaces in your home. You don’t want to install brand new counter-tops when a year later the surfaces will be worn and the corners are chipped. Quality materials and workmanship make all the difference here.
When it comes to kitchen remodelling and makeovers, we have the experience and skills required to ensure every step from design to execution is carried out with the utmost expertise.
Small Kitchen Renovations
In major cities like Auckland, small kitchens are becoming the new norm. This is especially true for apartments in the inner-metro areas or for tiny houses. Small kitchen remodelling is all about maximising functionality and optimise storage with smart design.
When we renovate your apartment, tiny house or another dwelling type with limited kitchen space, we’ll combine clever renovation approaches and space saving features to design a small kitchen that is comfortable, beautiful and functional.
How Much Does a Kitchen Renovation Cost?
The overall cost of a kitchen remodelling and makeover project depends on how extensive it is, what kind of features you want, how large the space is and more. As a rough guide, costs range as such:
- Low end – $10,000 – $15,000 (e.g. Mitre 10 kitchen or similar)
- Mid-range – $20,000 – $25,000
- High-end – $35,000 + (fully custom cabinetry, stone benchtop, changes to walls etc.)
How to Find Kitchen Design Ideas
Everyone wants a stylish, well-designed kitchen. But it can be hard to put your finger on exactly what you want. In these situations, it can be helpful to look at Pinterest and home interior magazines for ideas. You can also visit kitchen companies and their websites as they have great sources of information and ideas for different layouts and finishes.
Sometimes small changes can make kitchens look amazing. If you’re looking for an affordable kitchen makeover, consider options such as:
- Applying a brand-new coat of paint to modernise the colour scheme.
- Updating the lights to improve energy efficiency and aesthetics.
- New flooring (vinyl and floating wood floors are simple, affordable and versatile options.)
- Updating details like light switches, handles, taps and power point covers.
- Changing the cupboard doors and handles, which can make a kitchen feel much more modern.
