A kitchen remodel can be a major investment for your home and can give your room a new lease of life, but is it worth doing?
The answer to that is a resounding yes, and in this article, we will explore some of the many benefits of kitchen remodelling and how it can enhance your home and lifestyle.
What is a kitchen remodel?
This is the term used when you tear out your existing kitchen, including units, countertops and flooring, in order to install a shiny new one with different features and, often, a different aesthetic.
The average cost of a full remodel of your kitchen will be around £11,500. However, if your budget doesn’t quite stretch that far, we have the solution.
At Kitchen Makeovers, we’re able to update your kitchen at a fraction of the cost by simply replacing cabinet doors, drawer fronts, worktops and fittings – giving you a new kitchen without the expense, fuss or disruption to your family.
The benefits of kitchen remodelling
Kitchen remodelling can be an exciting and rewarding experience for homeowners, offering a variety of benefits beyond just aesthetic improvements. From increased functionality and energy efficiency to improved home value and quality of life, the benefits of a kitchen remodel are numerous and can have a significant impact on the overall enjoyment and value of your home.
Whether you are looking to update an outdated design or create a more functional and efficient space, a kitchen remodel can help you achieve your goals and transform your home into a more beautiful and enjoyable living space.
In the UK, most of us have complained at one time or another about not having enough storage in our homes, and if you’re a keen cook, a lack of storage space in your kitchen can be a constant frustration. A kitchen remodel allows you to choose a new kitchen design which incorporates extra and more efficient storage room, making it easier to navigate your kitchen.
If your kitchen is looking a bit tired or even if you just fancy a bit of a change, a remodel can give the heart of your home a fresh new look.
The good news is that you don’t have to fork over huge amounts of money to give your kitchen a reset. At Kitchen Makeovers, we can help you to achieve a beautiful new look for your kitchen by simply replacing your cupboard doors, drawer fronts, worktops and fittings; for a brand new room at a fraction of the cost of a full kitchen remodel. Just like with a full refit, we have a wide range of colours and finishes available to ensure that you find a new style kitchen which is a perfect match for your requirements and budget.
The majority of accidents in the home occur in the kitchen, and these are often due to old, worn or torn flooring or outdated electricals, including outlets. A kitchen remodel gives you the opportunity to replace old-fashioned and dangerous features with safer, more modern alternatives.
If you’re fed up with having to perform contortionism in the kitchen while cooking, a kitchen remodel can help. A remodel allows you to reimagine your cooking space to your own specifications, meaning that you have everything to hand while creating your culinary masterpieces. We know what you’re thinking – sounds like a massive job, right? Not necessarily. At Kitchen Makeovers, our design wizards are experts at helping our customers to maximise space, even in the tiniest of kitchens – and without the hassle, mess and expense of a full-on kitchen refit.
Energy is, of course, at the forefront of all of our minds these days and, in the UK, many householders are using old and inefficient equipment in their kitchens, resulting in wasted energy which equates to wasted money.
Introducing more energy-efficient features and appliances to your home can seem a little daunting in terms of cost but, not only will this help you to cut down on your energy bills each month but, it can also improve your home’s energy rating. While this may not seem like such a big deal right now, it can potentially increase the value of your home when it comes to selling up and moving on.
Having your kitchen remodeled offers a great opportunity to upgrade your appliances to more modern ones – something which, while requiring a financial outlay, will save you cash in the long run.
For many of us, the kitchen is very much the heart of the home and, for those who don’t have a dedicated dining room, it’s also the place where the family gathers to share meals and stay connected.
A kitchen remodel can help to make this happen by allowing you to add dining space and even a kitchen island if you have the space. Kitchen islands continue to be immensely popular for UK homes, and not only do these provide sitting and eating space, but they can also add some sneaky storage space too; helping to keep your room tidy.
At Kitchen makeovers, our design team can help you to create a fantastic dining area in your kitchen without breaking the bank and our large range of colours, materials and finishes means that your new eating space will blend perfectly with your kitchen’s existing decor.
The floor show
Tired, tatty and torn flooring in your kitchen not only looks unsightly but can be downright dangerous too. Every year, around 2.7 million Brits suffer some form of accident in the kitchen, and a significant number of these are caused by uneven, ripped or worn lino or wood flooring.
Replacing the flooring in your kitchen can help to keep your family safe while moving around the room – and it’s not as much bother as you might think. Fitting modern clean, and fresh flooring can give your room a whole new look and takes just a few hours to complete in many cases. You can choose from our wide selection of flooring materials which are available in a number of finishes, including faux wood patterns, to give your kitchen a refresh, whether you’re after a rustic effect or a sleek modern one.
What our customers have said
At Kitchen Makeovers, we love to hear from our customers and here’s what Derek Green said about his new kitchen, which we recently updated; “
The fitters that attended were…quality workers, pleasant, friendly and approachable. They worked in a very methodical way and removed worktops and doors without damaging the existing tiling or base units. We were kept informed and involved, when required, at every step. They cleaned up as they went, and the final result exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend this company to anyone thinking about freshening up a tired kitchen, as ours was”.
Times can be tough at the moment, and we understand that a full kitchen refit is out of reach for many people’s budgets. Our kitchen makeovers allow you to upgrade and refresh your kitchen without the huge expense of fitting a brand-new one. Because we simply replace facades and fittings rather than tearing them out and starting from scratch, your new kitchen will be in place in just a few days at a fraction of the expense of a brand-new kitchen and without the mess, fuss and disruption.
