You’ve convinced yourself that remodelling your kitchen is a brave and doable project that you want to undertake this year. We support this endeavour and want to help you make the right decisions because there are many you’ll have to take.

You know what they say, the devil is in the details, and it’s easy to get caught up in them in a remodelling project. But in essence, getting the bigger things done right is more important. Especially when it comes to the bigger stuff like flooring, colour palette, and staying within budget!

A kitchen remodel is crucial to increasing the value of your home and making them more user-friendly improves your liveability. It also tweaks your home by giving it a nice face-lift and makes it more inviting.  

Here are some things to keep in mind when you get started with your kitchen.

Keep Things That You Like

Kitchen renovations can be financially hefty, and you don’t want to go over budget midway. Think about elements in the kitchen that you like and would like to preserve.

For example, original windows and lighting fixtures can save you thousands of pounds. On the other hand, when you renovate, your floor is going to undergo some unavoidable damage. Spend wisely on repairs that are a must, and incorporate bigger changes that will be more visible.

Expand Your Kitchen Space Wisely

One of the reasons you might want to renovate is to make the kitchen space bigger to accommodate more people. There are ways you can do it without breaking the bank.

Consider opening up the space by breaking down a wall that connects to a fairly unused adjacent area like an entrance corridor perhaps.

Weigh your options for an open floor plan (and your budget) where your kitchen opens up to the dining area. This makes it look more spacious instantly.

Make The Right Flooring Decision

When making flooring decisions for your kitchen, you have to find the perfect balance between practicality, durability and aesthetic appeal. This is a major component of the overall design impact you want to have for your kitchen and your entire living space.

Here are some popular choices that fit the criteria and offer versatility.

Luxury Vinyl Tiles: These are easy to clean and are extremely durable. They have a sheen that lasts for a long time so they look brand new even after going through a rough time.

Laminate flooring: This is hands down one of the UK’s most beloved flooring types and for good reason. It looks great and is low maintenance, as well as super easy to install.

Vinyl flooring: This is available in several types of colours and effects and also comes in cushioned and non-slip varieties for safer and children-friendly kitchen surfaces.

We can help your kitchen floor look top-notch with our extensive range of flooring supplies available online. Take your pick from versatile luxury vinyl tile flooring, laminate or vinyl flooring and more. Contact us at 0300 303 6069 for more information!
