Why a kitchen renovation is worth it

We all know the kitchen is the focal point of the home. Probably the busiest room in most households, kitchens are a source of constant traffic from inquisitive toddlers, hungry teens, cats, dogs and the resident family ‘midnight-snacker’! 

The influx of daily traffic causes wear and tear very quickly and as the central point of the home it’s always important to keep this area in tip top condition. A comfortable, functional and stylish area to gather the family, entertain and cook can be achieved on a budget.

An inexpensive kitchen renovation can add a surprising amount of value to your home when you are looking to sell and as an added bonus, sprucing up the kitchen may be just the thing you need to reinvigorate your passion for cooking!

Think about replacing your existing handles.

Determine your budget

A kitchen renovation doesn’t mean a complete rebuild. Before you start the project, work out exactly what you want to spend and work backwards from there. Kaboodle kitchens afford you the luxury of buying everything separately so you can build your new kitchen over time – keeping lump costs down.

If you've already installed kaboodle cabinets in your kitchen then it may be a case of giving your doors and panels a facelift with a brand new colour. For a quick refresh; replace your handles, or even get a stylish new benchtop! The smallest changes can make it feel like you've had a complete kitchen renovation.

Revamp your space with kaboodle

Our massive range of benchtops tick all the boxes and can work in any style kitchen. From stone look-a-likes, to bamboo benchtops, to an array of European style benchtops - we have you covered.

We have a bunch of different kinds of doors and panels to choose from, hitting all the latest trends! The feel of your kitchen will dramatically change simply by changing your cabinet doors to your existing kaboodle kitchen. You could choose a sleek black gloss for a modern style, or swath your kitchen in woodgrain for a country feel. All this can be done quickly (and painlessly) by simply picking up new doors and panels!

You could also add more storage by installing extra base cabinets, wall cabinets or wine racks.

For an extreme low budget renovation, consider changing your handles first up. We have a great range of on trend handles to choose from and you could upgrade your existing kaboodle hardware to our soft close or push to open hinges!

Other items to replace

Bring some colour to your new kitchen renovation by adding a bright splashback, add a focal point with a new wall clock or change the ambience of the room with some new lighting. These items are easy to change and once again can be added over time instead of buying them all at once – adding to the theme of a cheap kitchen renovation.
