KITCHEN

Homes+ (Australia) - - BEFORE & AFTER -

Given it was a good-sized space, a brand-new kitchen would have cost at least $15,000, but I sim­ply didn’t want to spend that much so I had to think of an­other idea. Know­ing the buyer fo­cus on the en­gine room of the home, I needed it to look like a new kitchen. I opted for the next best thing: chang­ing the fa­cade. By re­tain­ing the kitchen’s car­cass, up­dat­ing the cup­board and drawer fronts in a strik­ing char­coal grey lam­i­nate, and up­grad­ing some of the in­ter­nals with fid­dly car­pen­try, I was able to pull off this kitchen trans­for­ma­tion for just $10,000. I saved on de­mo­li­tion and skip costs, and the ex­pense of buy­ing and in­stalling an en­tirely new kitchen.
