The kitchen is the room of the house that we spend most of our time in. It is thus very important to keep it clean and healthy. In some cases, a full renovation helps to keep things fresh. One of the renovation jobs that will increase the value of a house is the kitchen so when you look at it, the kitchen renovation process is a very important part of gaining value from this job.

Deciding The Cost Of A Kitchen Renovation

Firstly before one attacks a job like this there needs to be a clear guideline as to the budget because a kitchen renovation can range anywhere from $2,000 to $25,000 depending on the size of the kitchen and the number of and quality of appliances that are bought for the new kitchen.

Once the budget has been decided then it is a matter of deciding if you are going to do a full renovation of the kitchen or a part renovation (repainting some areas rather than replacing).

There Are 4 Basic Steps In A Kitchen Renovation Process

1. Assess the work to be done – what appliances are going to be replaced, are the cupboards going to be totally replaced or just have the fronts renewed or repainted, are there to be new cupboards, splashback, benches, etc. Take measurements for all of your new cupboards and any other items that are going in the new kitchen.

2. Cost out all the alterations and replacements to be done and adjust if necessary to meet budget. The easiest costs to adjust are the appliances. Get quotes from tradesmen.

3. Order all the fixtures, fittings and appliances and any tradesmen need for the work.

4. Repair and repaint walls, install the new kitchen hardware and new appliances and new flooring.

It is important not to underestimate the costing during the kitchen renovation process as this can really gallop away when choosing fixtures, fittings and appliances. If something does need to be changed then ensure that the costs do not escalate because of this.
