Cabinet Maker : Important Elements of Kitchen Cabinet RenovationsH&H Cabinets
Your kitchen is not only one of the most important, and used, areas of your home; it is also one of the most complicated when it comes to renovations. It can also be one of the most costly, which is why careful planning of the elements involved, from appliances to kitchen cabinets, is so crucial, This careful planning involves the services of a cabinet maker.
H&H Cabinets have been designing and installing kitchens across Melbourne for many years, and over time we have learned that these critical components, coupled with the importance of hiring a professional kitchen renovator, are the best way to ensure a successful outcome that you will love.
Kitchen Cabinet Maker planning and design
A properly planned and designed kitchen renovation with the help of a professional designer is a necessary first step to ensure you avoid costly mistakes later on in the process. An experienced designer can help you ensure the look, functionality, and ergonomics of your new space suit your needs and budget.
When it comes to the kitchen cabinet renovation, Melbourne homeowners often want products that are not considered to be off-the-shelf, which can cause significant delays if you are waiting for a back-ordered sink. Planning ahead means having products ready-to-go before construction starts saving delays and hits to your budget when work is underway.
The all-important kitchen appliances
It would be best if the appliances were one of the first things you selected as the cabinetry can then be designed around them, offering a more considered result. Kitchen cabinets are far easier to customise than pre-manufactured appliances.
If you do this, you will ensure that your kitchen flow is designed around functionality, while also being able to determine gas, water and electric ports as well as any ventilation needs.
A kitchen cabinet maker that is working with specifications and installation details prior to cabinetry design will be able to create a far nicer integration and considered overall layout.
Utilising a quality kitchen cabinet maker
The options for your kitchen cabinets are endless. The timing of your kitchen renovation will be centred around the installation of your kitchen cabinets, so this should be the second step after ordering appliances.
H&H Cabinets are experts at ensuring you have stunning kitchen cabinets that provide plenty of storage for the many cooking implements you’ll collect over time. The kitchen does not have to be cluttered if well-designed.
Choosing your kitchen countertops
There are varying benefits to the material choice for your countertops but always comes down to personal preference as they are a prominent visual feature of your kitchen. These will be selected just after, or at the same time as your cabinets, and will dictate the finishing selection options that follow.
The careful selection of plumbing, gas, and HVAC
Fixtures can make or break a kitchen, and the variance in quality leads to significant differences in function and longevity. Quality designer fixtures and faucets versus those at the local hardware store vary greatly, and this is where most of your budget should go.
The designer will often make accommodations for gas and water lines for appliances, while also assessing necessary venting requirements.
Lighting is an integral part of your kitchen design
The electrical points which ensure you can power your fridge or stove need to be in the right spot and are essential considerations in a successful kitchen renovation. However, the location of your lighting is just as crucial.
Lighting plays a massive role in both aesthetic and function. You don’t want to have an overlit space, but you also need to see what you’re doing. Directional lighting can be both stylish and functional, and your kitchen renovator will work with the electrical contractor to ensure that you have power and light in the correct places that meet safety code requirements.
From recessed and decorative lighting to under-cabinet options, working with an experienced designer is critical to your project’s success.
Have some fun with your backsplash
A cohesive kitchen design matches the flooring and backsplash, particularly with the countertops. At H&H Cabinets, we like to make the backsplash somewhat of a visual feature, an opportunity for a pattern or pop of colour that really catches the eye.
The full-plan of your kitchen renovation
The design elements and selections of fittings and features are the fun parts, the other side of a kitchen renovation means demolition, framing, subfloor installation, and other less-glamorous tasks than picking your new tap. Efficiently coordinating all of this can be time-consuming and stressful, which is all the more reason why you will benefit significantly from the help of a professional.
Always opt for a specified kitchen renovation professional as opposed to a “Jack of All Trades’ ‘ as working with a knowledgeable and experienced company will help your project flow smoothly, ensuring that there are no costly issues that destroy your budget and delay the results.
