ProReno shows you how not to squeeze too much into the space you have for a dream kitchen!

Planning a once-in-a-lifetime trip overseas can be a lot like planning a dream kitchen in one particular sense; trying to fit as much into the trip as possible so that we miss nothing!

However, thinking it through might make it worth cutting out some of it in order to enjoy the best of what a different country and culture has to offer, so that there is enough time to really soak in the experiences along the way – and planning your new dream kitchen can be just as tricky in the department of wanting to fit in as much as possible to cover all bases and more – just in case you miss out on something!

It’s tempting to go full throttle, however, the voice of reason prevails as the team at ProReno advise clients to whittle down this desire and focus on priority appliances and kitchen cabinetry that will make a lot more sense in the end, especially when you take into account the practical experience and knowledge accumulated by this team over 14 years in the industry that will be at hand to guide you.

The aim at ProReno is to ensure that by the time you first step into the beautiful custom kitchen you have worked with the design team to create, using an easy 3D program, you will immediately feel a level of comfort and functionality that would not have been there had you crammed too much into the space!

The ultimate idea is to have the support of a knowledgeable and experienced team of designers throughout the design phase, affording you the opportunity to make informed decisions that will streamline your ideas and still leave you with the kitchen of your dreams, minus any unnecessary clutter.

Points to consider, according to ProReno, include things like when your kitchen is used, the various ways in which it is used, who uses it and how often each person does use it, of course, if you are the only one creating divine food in the kitchen, the rest of the space can be designed around what you need, and then incorporate the needs of a family that spends  a lot of time in the kitchen as the hub of the home, whether it is a space used for entertaining, activities like homework for the kids, catching up on your mail or even your favourite series.

Knowing whether what you need from your dream kitchen will be best served by an L shaped, U shaped or galley layout is also essential; the working triangle (the special spot for the cook!) allows you to decide on the best place for the cleaning area versus the cooking area and refrigeration area, so that everything is within easy reach.

If wine racks, glass doors, wicker baskets, islands and any other features are floating around in your imagination as you envision your dream kitchen, make a list of them all, before you even make your appointment with the design team at ProReno for your first consultation.

It is very helpful to have a look at what ProReno has to say in their rough draft of how the costs can be broken up between kitchen furniture, fittings, appliances, worktops, sinks and taps, as well as to explore some of the storage solutions they have listed on their website, this is more or less where you will get a better idea of just how important it is not to try to fit everything into the space available for your dream kitchen!

Irrespective of what your budget is, ProReno is a team you can trust implicitly to meet that budget and offer hands-on, personalised service to deliver a stylishly functional kitchen that will more than match the dreams you have, and make this major investment one that lasts a lifetime!

Tell-tale signs you’re ready for a kitchen renovation.

Taking on a project as big as a kitchen renovation is a lot tougher than trying to decide on what the dish of the day will be, and a lot more stressful, without a doubt.

The budget and planning involved alone could give you sleepless nights for as long as you toss and turn about whether you really need to remodel your kitchen, or whether you can continue to live with what you have.

If you’ve already been dreaming of the things you’d love to do, to make your kitchen a space that’s really the heart of your home, here are a few of the tell-tale signs that are whispering to you it’s time for action:

·         You’d rather eat out:

If you’re avoiding cooking because the thought of going into your kitchen is a complete turn-off, it’s time!  Whatever you’re spending, either on eating out or ordering in, simply to avoid your kitchen, could be well-spent on a kitchen renovation that’ll prove to be a great investment.

·         Lack of counter space:

A complete lack of counter space can be a nightmare.  Every time you cook, you have to move 10 things around to create enough space to work on, and then move them back, to tidy it all up after the fact.

·         Lack of storage space:

Pretty much the equivalent of not having enough counter space!  If your kitchen cupboards are bulging at the seams, to such an extent that you need to put kitchen gadgetry in another room, it’s definitely time to consider a remodel.

·         Lack of functionality:

If your stove is on one end of the kitchen, pots on another and not-enough counter space somewhere in-between, you’re probably ready to tear your hair out in frustration.  If you’ve been running from one end to the other in your kitchen for long enough, the lack of functionality is a big tell-tale sign it’s already past time!

·         Outdated appliances are pushing up electricity consumption:

If an old desktop computer takes a lot more electricity than an up-to-date laptop does, imagine what an outdated stove or fridge can do to your electricity bill. An investment in up-to-date kitchen appliances isn’t only going to be great for functionality, it’ll make a kitchen renovation pay for itself sooner than you think.

·         Your kitchen isolates you from family and friends:

If you love cooking and want your family to be able to hang out with you while you cook, but you’re stuck with a small kitchen isolated from the rest of your home, it’s time to break down a few walls and reconfigure the kitchen to suit your lifestyle.

This is also true if you enjoy entertaining. There’s nothing that can compare with the atmosphere created in a kitchen filled with happy people and rich aromas drifting out of pots and pans.

How High Should Your Kitchen Cabinets Be?

From the appliances to the counters and flooring, your kitchen should be beautiful and functional. Your kitchen cabinets play a big part in your overall design since it provides you with a functional workspace. But kitchen cabinet height can be a challenge if you don’t know if there are any design “rules” you should adhere to.

While there aren’t any set-in-stone rules, there are some things to consider when choosing the height of your kitchen cabinets such as the kitchen layout, design, and your family needs.

Kitchen Cabinet Standard Height

Traditionally, the standard height for kitchen cabinets was 48 cm above the countertop. But nowadays, anything goes. It has become increasingly popular to raise the cabinets 50cm above the countertop or even more to add more breathing room.

In the end, it all comes down to the needs of the family and the overall design of the space.

Reasons to Raise Your Kitchen Cabinets

While 48cm is considered the minimum height if you want to fit in small kitchen appliances underneath cupboards, it doesn’t mean that you need to stick to the general standard. There are various reasons why you could choose to raise your cupboards and still have a beautiful end-result in the quest to get the kitchen of your dreams.

  1. If     your family is taller than average, it makes sense to raise your kitchen     cabinets.
  2. You     have a large kitchen with high ceilings.
  3. Making     a bold style statement is good enough reason.
  4. To     get more storage space underneath your cupboards.

 

Thinking out of the box when it comes to your layout and the height of your cabinets will ensure a warm and inviting kitchen once your renovation is complete.

Reputable kitchen manufacturers such as ProReno can help you try out a few different height options to find the best fit for your home. But the final decision is still up to you and your personal preferences.  

Why We Love White Kitchens (and You Should Too!)

If you’re a foodie you’re probably drooling over designer kitchens on Pinterest on a regular basis. White cabinets, clean lines, functional design and lots of natural light. But what if we tell you, your dream kitchen is more within reach than you might think?

The team at ProReno has done many kitchen renovations and while we don’t have any favourites – it would be like having a favourite child – we do love a classic white kitchen. Here’s why:

1. White Is Adaptable to Any Style

No matter what look you’re aiming for, white will suit it perfectly! Country kitchen – check. Contemporary kitchen – check. It just works beautifully with any design.

 

2. White Will Make Your Kitchen Look Bigger

If you have a small or dark kitchen, white cabinets will give the illusion of space since it reflects light. You’ll want to spend more time in your kitchen, just soak up every inch of perfectness.

3. White Looks Clean and Fresh

White is the essence of hygiene and cleanliness with no way to hide dirt like a dark kitchen. If there’s one room in your home that can be clinical, it can be the kitchen. Alternatively, you can add a colour accent to make the atmosphere cosier.

4. White Allows You to Choose Fun Colour Accents

Speaking about accent colours, the sky’s the limit when you’re pairing it with white. The great thing about choosing a white kitchen is that you can change the accent colour – and ultimately the ambience – whenever you want or when trends change.

5. White Is Timeless

The best part of a white kitchen is that 10 years from now, your kitchen won’t be outdated like the coloured kitchen next door. White will never go out of style.
