Why Your Home Needs A Custom-Designed Kitchen

We all know that a kitchen is a large part of any home. After all, it’s where we prepare our meals and do just about everything else. Having a custom-designed kitchen lets you have your dream space to work in – no matter how big or small – without spending millions of dollars on the renovation.

A custom-designed or renovated kitchen increases the resale value of your home and helps you enjoy cooking even more.

To no surprise, recent reports showed that Australians are spending an average of $1.14 billion every month on home improvements.

Most people find that they save almost as much as they spend by committing to a custom-designed kitchen. You can create exactly what you want, from open floor plans to modern designs with sleek appliances and more at your fingertips than ever before.

So why choose this route? Here are some benefits…

It Fits Your Lifestyle, Not The Other Way Around

You don’t need to sacrifice your lifestyle because you’re living in a certain size or type of home.

Let’s face it: some homes and apartments come with kitchens that simply don’t work for everybody.

For example, if your kitchen is too large, your family members might spread out so much that they never see each other while meal preparation and clean-up take forever.

On the contrary, if your space is too small, you’ll constantly bump into each other and wonder why on earth you ever thought renovating such a tiny kitchen was a good idea.

If you want to get rid of headaches usually caused by “not enough” or “too much,” then we recommend installing a custom-designed kitchen in your existing space.

This way, you can create exactly what you want, where you want it. Not only does this benefit your lifestyle, but the resale value of your home will increase considerably.

Your Kitchen Fits Your Home’s Existing Layout

As mentioned before, some kitchens are too big for their homes or apartments, while others are much too small to accommodate basic functions like preparing meals or keeping up with family chores.

It can be difficult to tell what the future holds regarding how many people will live in a certain space and how many people do these things. For example, if you have three kids that are all off at college within the next five years, there’s no reason why you should waste money on an expansive kitchen that’ll soon hold minimal purpose.

A custom-designed kitchen allows you to design exactly what you want and where you want it.

If a pantry turns into a linen closet, then it can be placed elsewhere in the home for future family members or guests that visit from time to time. This way, you’re not stuck with a useless space after the original function is outgrown.

Your Home Appreciates in Value

Renovating your kitchen immediately increases your home’s value. In fact, a kitchen renovation is among the top home improvements that add value to a house.

Upgrading your kitchen will likely increase its worth between five and ten percent of the total cost of your project.

While this might not seem like a lot at first glance, it’s important to remember how much money you’re saving in the long run for having a customized kitchen designed by professionals who know exactly what they’re doing.

Australians are spending an average of $1.14 billion every month on home improvements.

The cost of installing cabinets from big-box stores pales in comparison to the price you’ll pay if everything isn’t exactly as you want it when it’s all said and done.

Don’t forget about appliances, countertops, flooring, and plumbing fixtures either. They all factor into the final cost you’ll pay.

You Can Create Exactly What You Want

Some things just aren’t made specifically for certain homes or even certain people. Sure, you could buy an island for your kitchen that is three inches too wide for your existing space, but what happens after renovation?

If it doesn’t fit through the door (or maybe even the window!), then you’ve wasted a lot of money on something that now sits in pieces somewhere in your garage until the end of time.

Instead of making do with less than what you actually want, why not contact us and have a custom-designed kitchen installed?

Have the cabinets butted up against each other if you desire, or pull them out to create extra counter space. Want to use the same stove/oven that you had throughout college? Go for it!

You Can Save A Ton Of Money

There’s always the potential to save money when you have a custom-designed kitchen. Do you really need that second dishwasher? Would an undermount sink be worth the extra expense if you already have one at home and there isn’t much difference in how they work?

Remember: cabinets and countertops are not just for show!

If all of your appliances fit into the existing space without problems, why spend more than necessary? Not only can you keep prices down by knowing exactly what will be fitted before moving forward with construction/installation, but you can also get multiple price points for fittings so that you get what best suits your needs and your budget.

Conclusion

A custom-designed kitchen can give you exactly what you want and need in the space that is available. It’ll keep costs down while adding value to your home and making it much more functional and comfortable for years to come.
