What to look for when choosing a kitchen?

Open-plan living is becoming more popular nowadays. Our customers are looking for kitchen designs that incorporate elements that make their living space as aesthetic as functional.

Pantries serve as storage units with pocket doors that help you keep your appliances and food products more organised.

Downdraft extractors are quiet and help take away the odours and steam from the room.

Combination ovens are becoming more popular and are a key part of any kitchen according to your cooking needs.

Handle-less fronts and wooden surfaces to create contrast and a minimalistic look.

Tap units from Quooker are becoming more convenient and provide you with cold, hot, and sparkling water.

5 main points that determine the price of your kitchen renovation:

  • Check the number of units/cabinets needed (Size of the kitchen)
  • Decide on your door type – These range from Price Group 1 to Price Group 9
  • Appliances (Cooking appliances)
  • Accessories (Lighting system, cutlery organisers, bar stools, etc)
  • Worktop (stone surfaces; quartz, laminate, etc)
