Before you start getting into the nitty-gritty of your kitchen renovation, plan your budget according to your family’s unique needs for easy decision-making down the track.
If you’re thinking of doing a kitchen renovation but you don’t know where to start, you’ve come to the right place! It’s easy to get carried away choosing colours and building a Pinterest board, but considering your budget first will save you time and expense throughout the project.
Everybody uses their kitchen differently, so you’ll need to consider the most important aspects of the room for your family. If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, consider the highest touchpoints. Are you spending most of your time working on the bench? Do you want premium appliances? Is your biggest pet peeve the cabinetry layout? Narrow down your main objectives for renovating your kitchen.
Know when to splurge and when to save
Veejay’s has been renovating kitchens in Perth since 1989 – turning your ideas and challenges into fully-functional solutions. We know that navigating the renovation process can be daunting, especially when it comes to allocating your hard-earned money. Here are our top budgeting tips to help you decide what to prioritise in your kitchen renovation.
Your benchtop is one of the highest touchpoints in your kitchen. It’s an asset you will use every day so it needs to go the distance. Consider a sturdy stone benchtop in marble or granite – or perhaps go for stainless steel or polished concrete for a more industrial look. Discover the different benchtop aesthetics within your budget at our showroom in Malaga.
You might love designer hardware, but if your budget won’t extend to it right now you can get something cost-effective for the short term. Cabinet handles and taps can be updated in the future – replace with luxe hardware when your budget allows. We stock a range of hardware for every budget to help you achieve your kitchen renovation goals.
Spend: Kitchen Renovation Team
Choosing reliable, diligent tradespeople with a strong attention to detail will save you time and expense in the long run. Avoid budgets blowing out and excess repair-work by hiring a team of professionals you can trust to get the job done right the first time. Veejay’s offers end to end project management of your kitchen renovation in Perth – taking the stress of coordinating plumbers, electricians and builders away.
Save: Low-use Appliances
If you know you need an oven but realistically you never cook, a standard oven and cooktop will suffice and could save you money that could be spent elsewhere. Perhaps you live alone so a double fridge is an overkill – smaller appliances may also cost you less on your electricity bill. Win, win! We can advise you on the ways to save on kitchen appliances for your family.
Spend: High-use Appliances
Likewise, if there are kitchen tools that you simply can’t live without it’s a good idea to invest in appliances that will make your life easier. Reliable dishwashers and double-size fridges might be necessary for large families, whereas smaller households will have different requirements. We can facilitate the purchase of your chosen appliances and ensure they are installed correctly.
The single most expensive part of a kitchen renovation is the relocation of utilities. If your kitchen layout already works for you, keeping your electrical and plumbing points in the same space will cut costs significantly. Talk to our team if you aren’t sure whether to spend or save on your kitchen layout.
If your kitchen cabinetry is well-designed and made with reliable components, it won’t need replacing for decades to come. To top it off, choose superior-quality brackets that will protect your cabinetry – the last thing you want is cupboard doors hanging off their hinges. We design our cabinets in-house, to make sure you have the perfect solution for your needs.
