How much does it cost to refurb your kitchen?

Home maintenance can feel like an added financial burden in times that are already very ‘taxing’ on your bank account.

Usually, if people can only afford to refurbish one room in their house, then they will choose their kitchen. This is not only for functional reasons, like new appliances, but because a kitchen is integral to the home and can influence the look and feel of the rest of the house.

Designer fitted kitchens

The cost of a new kitchen can depend on various factors, such as the size of your kitchen, how much of it you want to change and the quality of materials and appliances purchased.

If you really don’t have much money to change things and are adamant that you want some kind of refurb, there are small steps you can take to cut corners and improve the look. You could think about just replacing cupboard doors or maybe even just a lick of paint; you really will be surprised just how much of an impact such simple steps like this can make.

Although you are going to want to a modern or updated style, try and avoid going for anything ‘gimmicky’. A Moroccon themed, brightly coloured ceramic kitchen may seem like a good idea at the time, but the reality is that this style will date quickly.

The other added benefit is that by refurbishing your kitchen now, you are adding value to your home in the future.

Considering this, you might want to invest a bit more money, with the knowledge that by increasing the value of your home, you are getting it back in the future. And designer fitted kitchens needn’t be as expensive as you might initially think. You can usually get great deals, where you put just £99 down and then pay even less than that each month for a set time. Considering this can sometimes add £10,000 to the value of your home, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that it’s an investment.

What’s more, by having a luxury kitchen, you may be able to save costs in other areas of your life. For example, instead of going out for dinner with your friends, you could now think about inviting them to your home and cooking a delicious meal and showing off your new upgraded kitchen. It sounds really simple but cooking at home and making your lunches at home, rather than eating out can literally save you thousands of pounds each year.

The best thing to do is to Google which kitchen experts operate in your area and arrange a free consultation to see which designs are right for your home and which payback schemes suit your bank balance.
