According to Laminex in its Six Steps For A Successful Kitchen Renovation


There are some fundamental questions you should answer before you begin your renovation project. For example, why are you renovating in the first place? For more storage, better functionality, a style upgrade? What do you want your new kitchen to look like? Do you have a hard deadline, like hosting Christmas lunch, or are you in less of a rush? And how much do you want to spend?


The cost of your renovation will vary depending on whether you’re seeking a quick update or pulling everything out and starting over, but those aren’t the only variables at play. The key is to be clear about your priorities, so you can focus investment where it matters most, and to prepare (and stick to!) a detailed, itemised budget.


This is where you get into the nitty-gritty of design, and specifically, how your kitchen is going to function as a space. You’ll need to allocate storage, considering everything from food and utensils to cleaning products and waste, as well as resolving how everything will be arranged, so you can move efficiently between work surfaces, sink and appliances. If that sounds like a lot of work, don’t worry – there’s no need to reinvent the wheel.


We all want a highly functional kitchen tailored to our particular needs, but we also want it to look fantastic! That’s where style and colour come in. You might choose a contemporary look, characterised by clean lines and flashes of bold colour, or you might go for something more classic, a timeless combination of neutral tones and popular details.


Your choice of materials for benchtops, doors, drawers and internal cabinetry should be a combination of your chosen style and colour palette, mixed with durability and ease of use. The same balance between aesthetics and practicality applies to your selection of fixtures, including things like splashbacks, sinks, tapware, appliances, lighting and flooring. These all play an important role as signature design elements in the space, but also must perform for you day after day.
