Tips to keep in mind when planning a kitchen renovation.

Signing on the dotted line and committing yourself fully to a kitchen renovation is a major decision, financially and emotionally.  Once the deed is done it’s done, there’s no going back.

If functionality and aesthetics are important to you, here are a few tips to keep in mind when planning a kitchen renovation

·         Design to purpose:

How you want to use your kitchen is going to be a major point to consider. If you’d like to incorporate an area where the kids can do their homework while you cook, or add dining space for entertaining guests, consider a layout that’ll suit your lifestyle.

Simply following a trend won’t cut it if your kitchen doesn’t suit its purpose as the heart of your home.

·         Make the most of your budget:

A kitchen renovation runs into the thousands in terms of a budget, and how you spend that money is going to be very important. There will be areas that may mean a bit of a trade-off in order to cut costs and still have that dream kitchen, but that’s where professionals like ProReno can assist you in making informed decisions.

Before you head for your first meeting, make up your must-have list and wish-list so that it’ll be easier to focus on sticking within your budget.

Letting go of what you wish you could have is a lot easier than letting go of what you must have in your dream kitchen.

·         Pay close attention to layout:

The layout of your kitchen is essential. You want everything that opens and closes to do so as it should, without battling to get to it because there’s a cupboard or countertop in the way! A beautiful new fridge or stove that doesn’t open properly is going to defeat the purpose of functionality.

The only way to make sure that your kitchen will function the way you want it to is to work with a kitchen specialist to design the right layout to suit the space.

·         Storage essentials:

Few rooms in the home can be as cluttered as a kitchen can be, especially when there’s not enough storage.  You need to consider what your storage options are in terms of functionality, style and comfort.

Getting to pots and pans, kitchen utensils, cutlery and crockery with ease is going to be central to your plans for storage. Ingredients also need to be within easy reach, and then there are some that you may like to store in an easily accessible pantry.

·         Lighting:

Good lighting is essential in the kitchen. You need to be able to see what you’re doing, whether it’s chopping, measuring or looking for settings on the stove or other kitchen appliances.

Under-cabinet lighting is great if you’d like to shed a little more light in areas of the kitchen that are used mostly in food preparation. Lighting also adds to the ambiance of a stylish, warm and inviting kitchen.

Less is not more when it comes to lighting in the kitchen!

Feeling overwhelmed by it all?

Your kitchen is the most lived-in room in the home, and it also adds to the resale value of your home if you intend to sell at a later stage, which makes it an even greater challenge to make sure that no detail is missed.

Classic vs Modern: Which Kitchen Type Is Right for You?

Everyone needs a kitchen that matches their taste and mirrors their lifestyle. While some prefer a modern, more trendy design others want to stick with classic and traditional. There’s no right or wrong side, it all comes down to personal taste. Below are some things to consider when making your final decision:

Modern Kitchen Design

Modern designs focus on using clean lines combined with contemporary features. Typically, a modern design follows a minimalistic approach with the primary goal to remove clutter. In return, this type of design celebrates an open feel with plenty of natural light and smooth surfaces.

The downside to modern designs is that they tend to change quickly and if you’re not planning in renovating your kitchen in the next 20 years, you might want to consider a classic design.

Classic Kitchen Design

Classic, traditional kitchens are warm and welcoming. By choosing a classic design, your kitchen can be timeless and beautiful for many years, even decades to come.

The downside, however, is that it can be challenging to be unique which might make your kitchen look and feel similar to many other kitchens.

Both modern and classic kitchens have their pros and cons. The question is “What do you prefer?” Sometimes it can be hard to choose a side. Which is why classic modern designs are becoming more popular in new homes. By collaborating both design types, it allows for more inventive inspiration and a unique end-result.

Whatever you choose for your new kitchen, make sure you hire a professional like ProReno for your kitchen design in South Africa. With nearly 15 years’ experience in the business and more than 3000 kitchens to show for it, you can be sure you’re in good hands.

3 Signs It Might Be Time to Replace Your Kitchen Cabinets

The kitchen is the heart of any home. It’s where the family comes together to enjoy meals and have conversations about their day. A lot of time is spent in the kitchen preparing these meals. So, if your kitchen isn’t extremely inviting or lack functionality, you might not want to use it often.

Nothing lasts forever and the same goes for kitchen cabinets. Below are some telltale signs that it’s time to replace your kitchen cabinets:


1. They are damaged

Water damage can cause the wood to warp. It can also cause mold growth which isn’t just unsightly but harmful to your health. Water damaged cupboards will no longer open and close properly.

2. They lack functionality

If you’ve just moved into a new house, you might have noticed that the kitchen design could do with some improvement. Hard to access cabinets that require you to unpack the whole cupboard to reach certain items can be frustrating, but this can only be rectified with a kitchen renovation.

3. They’re outdated

Not all kitchens are timeless. Trends change, and everybody has different tastes. When choosing new kitchen cabinets, go for a classic look that will stay in trend much longer.

How Long Should Kitchen Cabinets Last?

Kitchen cabinets could last a few decades but there are various elements that can shorten its lifespan. Such as mold, water damage or a termite infestation, to name a few.


Average Lifespan of a Kitchen

If you search online, you might find the average kitchen lifespan to be 50 years or more. Shocking as it may seem, it can be true if your kitchen is timeless. But, in most cases, it’s typically 20 – 30 years max before you’ll need a remodel.
