All About Kitchen Renovations

The reasons as to why you might be looking at changing your kitchen are endless. Everyone has their own version of what their dream kitchen would be. Seeing as it is one of the most important rooms in your home. Perhaps you are about to sell and you want to increase the resale value of your home, or maybe you’re ready to change your dated kitchen for one that better suits your family’s lifestyle. People’s needs do change over time.

Spending your hard earned money on a kitchen upgrade is a wise choice. Upgrading your kitchen is often the best bang for buck upgrade you can do. In other words, you will get much more in return for your money than if you spend that money redoing other parts of your home.

Renovations NZ have been helping Kiwi’s update, renovate or fully replace their kitchens for many years. We have all the experts at our fingertips to ensure you get a beautiful kitchen with as less hassle as possible.

Being at the forefront of New Zealander’s renovation projects, Renovations NZ can help you with new kitchen design and talk you through the latest design trends. We know what the latest functional innovations are, such as under counter refrigerators that allow children to serve themselves and barstools for kitchen islands and we can explain how these innovations could enhance your kitchen experience.

Renovations NZ also have industry links with the best of kitchen technology brands, be it for residential or commercial grade kitchens. Each year the top designer brands release new appliances to help make your cooking experience easier. Everyone likes the idea of eating healthy and so we can recommend options like installing a convection steam oven by Sub-Zero and Wolf will also make your oven which allows you to cook your meals healthier. If you have kids, an induction cooktop will speed up the cooking process, while serving as a safer alternative for your entire family.

Sometimes a kitchen is screaming out to be renovated because it lacks functionality. It may have been installed by a previous owner, or a long time ago when your home was originally built and the design options we have now simply weren’t available. Renovations NZ can devise a space plan for your kitchen that introduces functionality, practicality and design.

Whether your interior style is modern, classic or some kind of retro kitsch Renovations NZ can help you achieve the kitchen of your dreams.

Kitchen design can fall prey to the trends of the season just like any other part of our home. Home renovation magazines are full of the latest and greatest looks, colours, appliances and gadgets. But just because the latest and greatest is currently “in” doesn’t mean that your kitchen has to look like every other generic kitchen out there.

It is said that the kitchen is the heart of your home – it is where people gather, memories are made and food is prepared to share with your friends and family. Being such an important place in your home it surely deserves good workmanship and a design that reflects you.

2016 saw a rush for kitchen sculleries to be installed. The lure of a large pantry type room where you could hide your staples and appliances and just have clean workspaces “on show” was popular. However, at the start of 2017 designers are moving away from sculleries and there is more of a push to have kitchens as a bespoke part of the living area – fully integrated into family life with everything in easy reach of the cook.

Kitchen colour palettes do not seem to have made any giant leaps from 2016. There is still a large emphasis on having natural materials – stones and timbers with dark elements. Many new kitchens now aim to bring part of the garden indoors and feature herb gardens and hanging green walls.

Technology has taken over the world in the past 20 years and the Kitchen has not been saved from this. Modern technology in a kitchen allows for a better cooking experience and fuel efficiencies. Dual-fuel appliances are in high demand as they allow you to experience induction and gas cooking. Technology within the kitchen also allows for better time efficiency. No one wants to be stuck in the kitchen for hours, but everyone wants to enjoy homemade gourmet delights at the dining table.
