The kitchen is arguably the most important room in the home. A huge amount of time is spent there, and a dated and drab kitchen can have a huge effect on your mood and the overall impression that your house gives.
For these reasons the kitchen consistently remains the most popular room in the house to remodel in Australia, with Aussies spending an average of $20k on their kitchen renovations.
While many people opt to remodel their entire kitchen, simply upgrading your cabinets can totally transform your kitchen and improve its functionality, aesthetic and all-round appeal. Here are just a few of the ways that replacing your cabinets can improve your kitchen.
- Choose cabinets of a higher quality
More often than not, the cabinets that builders choose are poor-quality options. They were most likely selected to save money and maximise their profits.
Investing in high-quality, custom cabinets will improve the functionality, aesthetics and longevity of your kitchen. Putting a bit of extra money towards well-crafted cabinets will save you from having to regularly replace or repair cheap and poorly-made alternatives.
- Express your creativity
One of the most exciting things about replacing your kitchen cabinets is that you have free range to choose whatever style you desire. No matter what aesthetic you’re going for, there are sure to be plenty of options for every price range.
From the material to the colour to the finish, do whatever feels best for you and your home.
- Modernise your kitchen
No one wants to use a dated kitchen, and one of the most impactful ways to bring a kitchen into the present day is through its cabinets. Cabinets that are sleek, practical and built to last will have your kitchen looking stylish and timeless.
You’ll have your work cut out for you with the range of options to choose from, with every trend from wood cabinets to bold colours being all the rage in kitchen design right now.
- Entice prospective buyers
If you’re looking to sell your home soon or are simply considering doing it sometime in the future, your kitchen is one of the first things you should look at. The kitchen is generally agreed to be the heart of the home and will make or break your house to many potential buyers.
Modernising and elevating your kitchen with high-quality, beautiful cabinets will help to attract buyers to your home and potentially increase its value.
- Increase storage space
A kitchen without sufficient storage space can be a nightmare, and often you have to resort to cluttering the countertops with everything that can’t fit in the cabinets.
By replacing your kitchen cabinets you can add in extra storage space, making your kitchen organised and fully functional again. This gives you plenty of room to cook and prepare food comfortably and with ease.
- Improve functionality
Too often, poorly designed kitchens can be a hassle to cook in. Upgrading your cabinets can help make your kitchen one you can actually use, by utilising design features such as sliding shelves, garbage and spice pullouts and vertical dividers. These additions can make navigating around your kitchen a breeze, and bring the joy back to cooking again.
Upgrading your kitchen cabinets can completely change the feel of your home, and allows you to modernise, add value and improve the functionality of your kitchen all in one. Kitchen makeovers may seem like a lot of work, but any temporary inconvenience is far outweighed by its long-term benefits. Talk to a professional today about getting your cabinets updated today.
