Kitchen renovation

Q. We will be starting to renovate our kitchen very soon and are looking for ways to stick with our budget without losing quality. What tips can you suggest?

A. The kitchen is a great area to renovate as it is one of the most used rooms in the house and can add significant value when renovated. Even though you may want to create a stylish room kitchen with the latest designs, you will need to think about how easy it will be to maintain. Smooth surfaces in light colours, such as white laminate counters or ceramic floors, are easy to clean but stains and spills show up easily. Make sure you plan for lots of bench space as this is one of the most sought-after features for a kitchen. Think about what types of appliances will be living on the bench and whether there is enough room left over for preparation and serving. When it comes to picking a colour scheme, you may find that neutral is best. Not only will this help keep cohesion throughout the house, but if you do end up selling or renting the property, the property will most likely be more appealing to a larger group of tenants/buyers if there are neutral colours.

With interest rates at their lowest for more than 50 years, there are some great rates available. The best thing to do is to compare rates from all the lenders. Let us help take the leg work out of doing this - Compare Home Loans now
