A kitchen renovation is an exciting and transformative project that can breathe new life into the heart of your home. Whether you are looking to update outdated fixtures, improve functionality, or create a space that reflects your personal style, a successful kitchen renovation requires careful planning and consideration, combined with the highest level of design knowledge and manufacturing expertise.
Local, knowledgeable and on-trend, the kitchen renovation and design experts at Harrington Kitchens excel at creating beautiful kitchens for our Sydney-based and Southern Highlands clients. In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through everything you need to know for a successful kitchen renovation in Sydney and beyond.
1. Start with Clear Goals and Objectives
Before diving into the renovation process, it is important to set clear goals and objectives for your kitchen project. We suggest taking time to consider the following questions:
- What is the main reason for renovating your kitchen?
- What are your must-have features and design elements?
- What is your budget for the renovation?
- What is your expected timeframe for completion?
Defining your goals and objectives will help you to have a clear vision and expectations as to the final outcome of your kitchen renovation project.
Working with an experienced, Sydney kitchen designer, like the team at Harrington Kitchens, will ensure that you have local-based expertise by your side from the very early stages. If you are unsure of exactly what you want or need before you meet with your designer, they will be able to work closely with you in the initial planning phase to understand you, your lifestyle and what you are hoping to achieve. They can then make recommendations and suggestions based on their wealth of knowledge and expertise.
2. Consider the Benefits of Local Sydney Kitchen Knowledge & Connections
When you engage with local businesses, you also engage with their local knowledge and their typically well-established relationships with other suppliers and companies too. This means that you can be backed by a reliable brains trust of product and design knowledge specifically for your area, giving you access to valuable information such as current style trends, or what is in demand for homes in your area.
Working with kitchen renovation manufacturers and suppliers in Sydney (or those who are locally based to you), can help to alleviate potential manufacturing or supply waiting times. Opting to have your kitchen locally manufactured can mean less delays due to shipping of parts or supplies from distant locations, which may result in quicker turnaround times for your renovation project.
Locally-based manufacturing can also be of benefit if you require any last-minute design or manufacturing changes. Any replacements or repairs can be dealt with in a timely manner too.
Having said that, it is important to note that regardless of the location, any kind of manufacturing does require some lead times and local suppliers can experience hold-ups too. Be sure to ask about waiting and lead times with your kitchen renovation company in Sydney before starting your project, so that you can manage your expectations in regard to delivery timeframes.
3. Choose High-Quality Materials & Finishes
Selecting high-quality materials and finishes will ensure that your kitchen stands the test of time. Professional kitchen designers in Sydney, like the team at Harrington Kitchens, will be able to help you navigate the best available options to suit your style preferences, budget and lifestyle.
Consider factors such as durability, maintenance, and aesthetic appeal when choosing:
Being able to see and inspect products and finishes before having to make a decision, is a great way to get a feel for what you like, and don’t like. This is something that is very easy to do so with a local-based kitchen company.
