Homes+ (Australia) - - BEFORE & AFTER -

Putting in a brand new kitchen would have to­tally blown my tar­get of com­plet­ing the ren­o­va­tion, in­side and out, for as close to 10 per cent of the to­tal value of the prop­erty as pos­si­ble. That’s my rec­om­mended bud­get for any cos­metic ren­o­va­tion, but it was an am­bi­tious tar­get in this case, as there were also struc­tural changes, like the bi­fold doors and cre­at­ing a new bed­room. By keep­ing the kitchen cab­i­nets but re­plac­ing the fronts and bench­top, I was able to com­plete the kitchen – in­clud­ing new ap­pli­ances – for about $3000, plus labour.
