[Q&A ]

Home (South Africa) - - KITCHENS - with Feli­cia & Danie

What’s next? This house is full of po­ten­tial; we’re happy to save and tackle the ren­o­va­tion in phases. You did it all on your own; were you tempted to get help? The only help we had was when it came to knock­ing down the walls and sand­ing the con­crete coun­ter­tops, which was a big job! But we know what we want and like do­ing things for our­selves. Any cost-cut­ting tips? • You’ll be sur­prised by the unique el­e­ments you can find at main­stream re­tail­ers; don’t be afraid to re­pur­pose items you like. Be creative! • Do your re­search and home­work be­fore at­tempt­ing a ren­o­va­tion; this will elim­i­nate un­nec­es­sary er­rors and costs. • Cre­ate a mood­board with all the colours, tex­tures, fin­ishes and dé­cor you like; this will keep your over­all vi­sion on track.
