Determine The Style Of Your Dream Kitchen With Help From ProReno

Once you have the nitty-gritty details about what you would want in a kitchen and how it should work to be perfectly functional to suit your lifestyle, you will get to the fun part of determining your style of kitchen, and there are a few things you may not have thought of that could help when it comes to finding your dream kitchen style.

This is the simplest route to take to determine whether you want a kitchen that is a little on the rustic side or the height of luxury, whether you like the idea of a completely ‘modern’ kitchen or lean more towards an eclectic style of kitchen.

Any kitchen starts from the basic ideas of modern and contemporary or classic and traditional kitchen styles. Having a template to work from just makes it all a lot simpler when it comes to adding the personal touches that make it a perfect expression of your unique personality and lifestyle.

Whether it is a high-end luxury kitchen or a mix of more than one style, the innovative team at ProReno will help you to make informed decisions about what does or doesn’t constitute your dream kitchen, adding practical advice into the mix based on almost fourteen years of experience in the kitchen industry.

Surprisingly enough even your clothing cupboard will give you some ideas about where you would like to head for in the style of your kitchen. Is it all about comfort, is only the best worthy of your closet, with each piece that gives you a sense of pride in your collection, or is yours a colour-coded collection of clean lines without too many patterns but a dash of colour in-between?

What do you put on your table to decorate when you host a party? A dainty arrangement of brightly coloured flowers in vintage containers, a beautiful brushed metal container bursting with fresh roses from your garden or sleek lilies that each have their slimline vase? These are ideas that could be pretty useful in the process of imagining the kitchen of your dreams.

Let Proreno Make Your Dream Kitchen A Reality

Planning your dream kitchen is going to be a lot easier if you have an idea of exactly what you want out of your kitchen. A good place to start is to think about your family and lifestyle. Do you have a house full of kids? Are you a full-on foodie, or is your kitchen more a work of art than a workhorse?

The number of people in your home and how many of them cook are also important things to think about, as well as whether you are right or left-handed. If you need more counter space than you currently have or better storage, this is your chance to perfectly align your needs with your dream.

The functionality of a kitchen differs from one person to the next and you need to think about what type of space you have, and what your family will be most comfortable with. Having a large family, especially if you love to entertain will mean thinking about a kitchen with larger appliances, and of course, plenty of counter space for sitting.

ProReno will offer you expert advice about how to achieve the perfect traffic flow for your kitchen, where appliances and kitchen cabinets will fit to create the most functional and comfortable kitchen to reflect your individuality.

Counter space is going to play an essential role in the functionality of your kitchen, but with an enviable range of high-quality products available from ProReno, there is no doubt that between their custom-designed kitchen cabinets and other products, you will achieve the perfect flow.

How To Take Care Of Your New Kitchen Cupboards

Over and above the tailor-made kitchen solutions offered by the ProReno team is the promise that only A-Grade board and the very best in European products are used in any kitchen which is designed and installed by a team of master craftsman who will leave you in no doubt that nothing less than the most beautifully designed and fitted kitchens come out of the ProReno stable.

Whether your kitchen is already installed or you are working with the creative team of kitchen designers at ProReno in bringing about your dream kitchen, there are a few things that ProReno offers as a guideline to extending the life of your kitchen, such as the proper care of kitchen cupboards.

ProReno advises that the lifespan of your cupboard surfaces can be extended by using a soft, clean and non-scratch cloth with mild soapy solutions instead of using strong chemicals, abrasive cleaners or furniture polish with a wax basis, especially on Melamine or Wrap cupboards, as this is going to wear away at the surface. If you have chosen Seno gloss boards for your cupboards a multi-surface spray cleaner like Mr Min will enhance the product’s qualities.

Like anything manufactured from wood, your solid wood and wood veneers are definitely going to require a softer touch, which means that using an extra mild soapy solution as you follow the wood’s grain will give it all the extra love and care it deserves to extend its life. Avoid any build up in areas that are close to hobs by wiping down these areas with a damp cloth after cooking, it is well worth the extra effort to avoid struggling with a tough build up over time at a later stage.

Exquisite kitchen design is at the top of the agenda for the innovative team from ProReno, but what happens to your dream kitchen once it has been installed is every bit as important to ProReno, which is why they will give you all the tips you need to keep your kitchen looking new.  Please visit the ProReno website to view the rest of the tips put together by ProReno for the care of your kitchen.

We will include just a few tips here, but when you visit our website you will find all the information you may require for addressing the varied surfaces that go towards maintaining your kitchen with the proper care.

Using a soft, clean and non-scratch cloth to clean any cupboard surface will maintain a good appearance during its lifetime. Do not use strong chemicals, abrasive cleaners or furniture polish with a wax basis when cleaning Melamine and Wrap cupboards, a soft clean cloth with a mild soapy solution will maintain its appearance very well, all of which applies to Hi-gloss cupboards as well, although a multi-surface spray cleaner like Mr Min may be used on Seno gloss boards to create a shine after cleaning.

Solid Wood and wood veneers need to be treated with extra love and care with an extra mild soapy solution while following the wood’s grain. It is always best to wipe down the areas in close proximity to hobs with a damp cloth after cooking to avoid a build-up that is going to be a lot more difficult to remove if built up over time.

For many more tips on how to maintain your kitchen surfaces, cupboards and appliances, please visit our website, or contact the team of experts at Proreno who will be happy to offer you the best solutions to get the most out of your kitchen.

Design A Kitchen That Suits Your Lifestyle

Driven by a passion for meticulous attention to detail as well as market-related pricing and fast but high-quality service is what has elevated ProReno to the top of our industry. As consistent winners of Service Excellence Awards from the Kitchen Specialists Association, we have constantly built on our ability to offer tailor-made products to suit each individual client’s requirements in order to deliver a beautifully fitted kitchen, from design through to the final product.

Choices of materials and colours for a modern kitchen are virtually limitless, allowing you to choose from a myriad of natural stones, raw woods, highly pressurised composites or high gloss, all of which are meant to come together in the sleek lines. The use of minimal or concealed hardware, frameless cabinets with a flat front along with floating shelves and strong horizontal lines form the perfect backdrop for the ornamentation created by the characteristics of the natural materials chosen.

Contemporary designs for kitchens offer the opportunity for the homeowner to find expression in using elements of other styles added to the use of multiple-layered materials composed of texture, different patterns and lines.  Highly functional built-in appliances and gadgets, along with cutting-edge design in storage and lighting allow you to push the boundaries of what we call ‘modern’ and give free rein in design.

Despite the timelessness of classic kitchens with the predominance of whites that define this style, adding a touch of other neutral tones can elevate it to another level, while still maintaining a restrained style.  For a touch of the eclectic to a classic kitchen, you can add various modern, industrial or vintage elements with your choice in lighting, dining table and other contrasting ideas.

Defined by their architectural designs, traditional kitchens may also consist of details like arches, mouldings, raised panel doors and even ornate chandeliers for that extra special touch. There are many different styles of doors and door inserts as well as bevelled glass that can be added to the mix to create an entirely unique traditional kitchen to reflect your personality.

Get the Most out of Your Custom Built-in Bedroom Cupboards

Let’s face it, most built-in cupboards make it nearly impossible to be space efficient. One feeble shelf at the top, a few narrow shelves on the side and a flimsy rod are not exactly designed to make your closet spacious and effective, leaving you with wrinkled clothes and your shoes a mess on the cupboard floor.

 Is your existing closet an organisational nightmare? Do you wish you could transform it into a space-efficient dream closet? We’re here to tell you that it’s possible to have a closet, walk-in or reach, where you’ll be able to find your things quickly and easily. Here’s how:

Design a Flexible Closet

A space-efficient built-in cupboard should be able to adjust to your unique needs. A professionally designed cupboard comes complete with holes on the side sections to give you the flexibility to adjust your shelves and rods as you please. This way, you can change your closet to suit your clothing style.

Use the Entire Space

If you have a corner in your closet you simply can’t use due to its design, you’ll know just why this is important. A professional design will work around every obstacle to ensure maximum storage space without any nooks and crannies you simply can’t use.

Let the Height Be Your Friend

Have you ever looked at the space at the top of your closet and think, I wish I could utilise that space? Effective built-in cupboard design is about using the entire volume of your wardrobe and involves some geometry. Wanting to use all the space shouldn’t be out of your reach.

The nice thing is you don’t have to be an expert in closet design, to get a professional closet design. All you need to do is call an expert like ProReno to manage the renovation for you. For affordable and space efficient built-in cupboards in Midrand, get in touch with the team at ProReno today!

How to Maximise Storage Space in Your Small Kitchen

Kitchen cupboards are a staple feature in every kitchen no matter the size. Not all homes are blessed with big, airy kitchens but the key to transforming your small kitchen is to know how to get the most possible storage out of each cupboard. If you’re looking for ways to increase storage space, consider adding these:

Pull-Out Drawers
Many kitchens come with deep cabinets, making it impossible to use the back of it. Other than the fact that they are difficult to access, it is extremely challenging to keep them organised. The solution: Pull-out cabinet drawers. Multiple pull-out drawers can be added to a single cabinet, making it super easy to reach whatever you have stored in there.

Corner Cabinets
Not utilising cupboard space in a kitchen is unlawful, even more so in a small kitchen. Corner cupboards can’t always be avoided and are unfortunately not the most practical for optimal use of space. An excellent solution would be to include a pull-out insert into your corner cabinet which makes it much easier to reach your items. You can choose from various designs to maximise your kitchen’s storage efficiency.

Drawer Organizers

Drawer organisers are a simple thing but can make the world of difference in the functionality of a small kitchen. Don’t waste valuable storage space by throwing utensils haphazardly into drawers when you can install drawer organisers to keep them all in place and add space in your drawers.

Under-Cabinet Rails
Have you ever thought about using the space directly under the top kitchen cabinets? When you add under-cabinet rails, you’ll have a perfect place to store pots and pans. You can also place hanging baskets to keep clutter off your countertops.

When it comes to kitchen design ideas by ProReno, the sky’s the limit. We’ve been renovating kitchens for more than 14 years and we have many satisfied clients to prove it. For more information or if you require a free consultation and quote, speak to the team at ProReno today.

Choosing the Best Sink for Your New Kitchen

Kitchen renovations are fun, said no one ever! While the end-result might be exciting, the process can be daunting and challenging. You are faced with too many choices when it comes to the design elements as well as the hardware. But keep in mind, a kitchen renovation is a personal thing – you have to make decisions based on personal preference, functionality and budget. If you can tick all three boxes, you’ll love your kitchen forever.

One of the most vital decisions you’ll need to make is choosing a kitchen sink. Here are some things to consider before you do.

 Use the Right Material

 Stainless Steel

The most common choice for kitchen sinks is stainless steel. Not only does it suit nearly any kitchen style, but it is also robust and will last many, many years. Small scratches can quickly be buffed out and they are easy to clean.

 Porcelain

Available in many colours and incredibly gorgeous, porcelain sinks are a must have for any traditional style kitchen. The only drawback is that they scuff and chip easily and need to be treated gently to look good for a long time.

 Other options include cast iron sinks and composite sinks which are available in various colours and are extremely durable. Composite sinks tend to be a little pricier.

 Match Your Sink with Your Kitchen Style

 There are various sink styles to choose from and your decision should be based on the style of your kitchen. A farmhouse sink is stunning and will make a bold statement in any type of kitchen. If you’re looking for affordable and durable, self-rimming sinks are a good option.

 A familiar option is the two-bowl sink we all grew up with. This option is perfect for those who don’t believe in dishwashers or prefer to hand wash. If a dishwasher is your friend, you might want to stick with one single sink basin for a beautifully streamlined look.

Another sink that’s gaining popularity is the undermount sink. It is easy to clean and create a seamless look. Prep sinks are an excellent addition to any kitchen. Typically installed on the kitchen island, they are perfect for food prep.

 While kitchen renovations are stressful, you don’t have to go through it alone. If you hire ProReno, we’ll make sure your kitchen remodel runs as smoothly as possible. For modern kitchen designs Johannesburg, get in touch with ProReno today!

3 Signs Your Kitchen Cabinets Won’t Make It Through 2020

There are many reasons people choose to replace their kitchen cabinets with the most popular being functionality issues and aesthetics. A lot of time is spent in the kitchen every day and if you’re not surrounded by something you love, you’ll hate every minute of it. And preparing food for yourself and your family should be a joyous affair.

The above-mentioned reasons for replacement are done by choice. You can choose to change your cabinets because they aren’t functional, or you can’t stand the look of them. But then there are also reasons that don’t leave you any choice. Replacement is not negotiable. Below are three reasons why you might want to replace your kitchen cabinets sooner rather than later.

1. Water Damage
Nearly all cabinets are made from wood making water damage a likely occurrence in the event of a water leak. Since there’s a lot of water in your kitchen, water damage is highly likely. Some signs to look out for include dark colour spots, swollen cabinets and doors not closing properly.

2. Sagging Cabinets
Sagging cabinets typically indicates that the cupboard has been overloaded for an extended period of time, the installation was done poorly, or that age has taken a toll on the cupboard. In all instances, replacement is the only option to rectify this issue.

3. Mold Growth

Mold growth is due to excessive moisture. Mold can have negative effects on your health, causing respiratory problems and even asthma. If your kitchen cupboards are invested with mold, there’s no easy save, it will need to be replaced since mold will jeopardise the structure.

When it’s time to replace your kitchen cabinets, why not hire the best kitchen cupboard builders in Johannesburg – ProReno – for the job. Get in touch with the team for a free quote today!

4 Ways to Get the Farm-style Kitchen You’ve Always Wanted

Farm-style kitchens have gained popularity in the last 5 years or so but don’t be fooled, it looks nothing like your grandma’s country kitchen. A farmhouse kitchen is uniquely personal and should suit your specific needs. Here are some changes you can make that will turn your kitchen into a farmhouse haven.

 1. Mix Old with the New

To create a kitchen that looks like it’s been developed over the years, incorporate eclectic pieces. By adding old and new pieces together in one space, you’ll easily achieve the look you’re after. Open shelving is an excellent option to make your kitchen feel more spacious and comfortable. Install new open shelving – if you have the space – or remove some cabinet doors. Another idea is to add freestanding cabinetry for an authentic farmhouse touch.

 2. Neutral Colour Palette

For a signature farmhouse kitchen look and feel, it’s vital to incorporate distressed finishes with vintage elements. Kind of like bringing the past into the 21st century. This can be achieved by adding rustic or glazed wood finished cabinets. Another way to add a timeless look is to include pops of colour like mint green or duck egg blue.

 3. Industrial Meets Natural

When your end goal is the farmhouse look, you don’t have to fear blending different materials and finishes as this will give your kitchen a cultured feel. By including wrought iron fixtures or barn doors – to name a few – you can easily achieve this look.

 4. Details, Details, Details

Creating a farmhouse kitchen is all about the details. Some ideas include traditional style molding, trim and casing or decorative millwork throughout the kitchen. This will add old-fashioned charm. Bring the entire design together with a reclaimed wood sign or some vintage elements.

 If you are ready to start with your kitchen remodel, whether it is a farm style, modern or traditional design, we can help. Get in touch with the team at ProReno for kitchen renovations in Johannesburg.

Trendy Kitchen Designs: Under Cabinet Lighting – Yes or No?

If there’s one thing we’ve heard about a million times, it’s that kitchens don’t always have adequate lighting. The lighting in your kitchen has a direct impact on your productivity in the kitchen and should never just be an afterthought. In fact, we believe that under-cabinet lighting is crucial in any kitchen design.

 Under cabinet lighting can be used for three different reasons: Tasks, Safety and Ambience. Let me explain:

 If you use the perimeter cabinetry with overhead cabinets to prepare some of your food items, you can shed some light on the situation with task lighting underneath your kitchen cabinets. In fact, consider a complete task lighting plan that includes various task lighting options such as rotatable fixtures and bright lights.

 When it comes to safety, the combination of lower wattage, LED or dimmable lights underneath cabinets is an excellent choice. In conjunction with other lighting options, it compliments tasks like chopping and working with sharp objects but when used on its own, it allows a safe route into the kitchen at night or early in the morning. No more waking up the entire house when sneaking to the kitchen for a midnight snack.

 Under cabinet lighting can also create ambience in your kitchen and ensures a cosy mood. Whether used for a romantic kid-free dinner or to slowly wake up in the morning while enjoying your morning coffee, ambient light is a must in every kitchen.

 The right lighting/fixture choices coupled with dimming capabilities could help you tick all three boxes – safety, ambience and tasks. At ProReno we’ll make sure to custom-fit your kitchen cabinet lighting so there are no awkward parts dangling around.

How to Choose a Kitchen Backsplash Colour to Compliment Your Design

It’s easy for a backsplash to become an afterthought during kitchen renovations. After all, there are bigger things that need your attention like the floors, countertops, cabinets and appliances. But the truth is, a backsplash actually ties all the other design elements together which is why you should keep it in mind.

In every kitchen, whether contemporary or traditional, you’ll find a backsplash area that provides the biggest impact. This area could be above your sink or range and will be a focal point whenever you walk into the kitchen. You might want to make a statement by using patterns or colour here. If you’re looking for a calmer and elegant look and feel, a white or neutral backsplash might be right for you.

 The question is, do you want your backsplash to tie every design element in your kitchen together or do you want to make a statement? Choose colour for impact or neutral to unify.

How to Choose Right Kitchen Backsplash Material?

 There are so many backsplash materials to choose from and choosing which one will work best can be a challenge. You can start by having a good look at your kitchen style. Rustic kitchens look great with a brick backsplash while you might want to opt for stainless steel sheets in an industrial style kitchen. In a contemporary kitchen, sleek ceramic tiles would be a beautiful choice.

 One last thing to consider before making the final commitment is the maintenance needed to keep your backsplash looking good for many years to come.

If you’re unsure about choosing the right backsplash material for your kitchen, the team at ProReno would be more than willing to assist you and offer expert advice.

Pros and Cons of Open Shelving in the Kitchen

If you’re considering a kitchen renovation, you’ve probably noticed that open shelving is extremely trendy right now. Every cooking show on The Food Channel sports open shelving with beautiful tableware, interesting bowls and the most perfect glassware you’ve ever seen. But before you make the leap toward open shelving for your kitchen, there are some things to consider. Below are the pros and cons of kitchen open shelving.

Pros

1. Cost-Effective
Open shelves might cost much less than actual cupboards. Depending on the usage of more cost-effective range materials and less thereof you can still get the desired look. So, if you’re on a tight budget, this might be an excellent way to save some money.

2. Clutter-Free & Neat Kitchen
Having open shelving will force you to think twice about buying unnecessary tableware and glassware which means you’ll have less clutter in your kitchen. Additionally, you won’t be able to hide an untidy shelf behind a cupboard door resulting in a neat kitchen.

3. Trendy
As we’ve said before, open kitchen shelving is all the rage right now and probably will be for a few years so you are bound to impress family and friends with your new modern kitchen.

Cons

As with everything in life, it can’t be all roses and sunshine and there are a few downsides to open shelving in the kitchen.

1. Collects Dust
Anytime anything sits on a shelf without being used for a while, it will collect dust. Cupboards protect your tableware from quickly collecting dust but if you’re planning on using whatever’s on the shelf or you don’t mind a few dishes now and again, you should totally go for it.

Are Your Built-in Cupboards Due for an Upgrade?

Newer South African homes come complete with built-in cupboards, but if you buy an old house, you might have to install them yourself. In which case it’s wise to use a professional contractor for the project.

 If built-in cupboards aren’t absent, they might need an upgrade from the typical painted chipboard look. In fact, you can get creative with the design and install cupboards that will suit your unique needs. If you have plenty of shoes, make space especially for them. If you only wear pants and button-up shirts, design a cupboard that will accommodate your taste. The sky’s the limit when it comes to designing the perfect built-in cupboard.

 Signs You Might Want to Consider a Built-in Cupboard Upgrade

 Extensive Damage

If you move into a home where kids used to live, you might notice damage to the bedroom cupboards. Kids love drawing on everything, not even talking about climbing shelves. Fixing it might be an option but why not give it a complete makeover while you’re at it?

 Mould Growth

Mould isn’t something you can play with. It’s a serious problem to have and should be eliminated as soon as you notice it. Mould can have detrimental effects on your health and can even cause asthma and other respiratory illnesses. Time to rip out those mouldy cupboards and replace them with new ones.

 Functionality and Appearance

If your cupboard isn’t fulfilling your needs, you might need to make some changes to enhance functionality. Perhaps add more storage space. Outdated cupboards will make the entire room look outdated, even if the design is hip and trendy.

 There are plenty of reasons why you might think your built-in cupboards need upgrading. And no matter what they are, they are reason enough to make the investment. For affordable prices and excellent customer service, get in touch with Proreno for your built-in cupboards in Pretoria.

5 Functional Kitchen Renovation Ideas for Your New Kitchen

When it comes to your kitchen, there are certain details you just need to get right. From choosing the perfect lighting and finishes to the right appliances, simple mistakes can cost you a lot of money. It will also affect the ultimate look and feel of your kitchen. Below are some renovation tips from the professionals to make your kitchen more functional.

1. Island Pendant Lights
Island pendants will never not be trendy because they are both practical and beautiful. Make sure it’s installed properly and at the correct height for the best results.

2. Microwave Shelf
Let’s face it, a microwave oven isn’t aesthetically pleasing at all which is why it’s a good idea to make a special space for it. When you install a microwave shelf, you can place it at a height that is easy to reach while complimenting the kitchen design.

3. Cabinet Lighting
Lighting can make or break your kitchen design. If your kitchen doesn’t have a whole lot of natural light, you can get the desired effect with cabinet lighting. It will make your kitchen seem cosy after dark and you’ll want to spend time cooking or baking.

4. Dustbin Cupboard

Dustbins are another item that isn’t exactly beautiful. In fact, they are gross and should be hidden out of sight. A cupboard specially made for your dustbin is the perfect solution since it’s out of sight but close enough to use.

5. Roll out Spice Rack
If you love to cook, you’ll know what a nuisance spice bottles can be. That open space next to your fridge can be utilised as a rollout spice rack. Your OCD self will thank you for it!

3 Common Misconceptions About Hiring Professional Kitchen Designers

In the last few years, DIY’ing has become huge. Mainly because people are trying to save money and partly because they haven’t been getting great results from so-called professionals.

It is true that there are a lot of amateurs posing as professional contractors in every industry but with a little bit of research you can do away with them and find the experienced and reliable contractors that will give you the results you want. Here are some myths we’re happy to bust so you can be satisfied with your kitchen renovation at last.

1. They Are Expensive
Hiring professional kitchen designers isn’t as expensive as you might think! In fact, in the long run, you’ll find it costs the same, if not cheaper than a DIY project. This is because kitchen contractors get materials at a discounted price due to agreements with suppliers. Another factor to consider is that they already have all the tools needed to complete the project while you have to buy or hire it. If you value your time, you can take it a step further. A contractor will take a week or two to finish a project that will take you months since you must work in your free time. Time is money!

2. You Don’t Need Skills to Do a Kitchen Renovation, Just Common Sense
Some people are under the impression that kitchen renovations are easy. If you don’t have an inclination for working with your hands, you will get stuck. Kitchen designs and renovations require skills and experience to get it right first time around.

3. Kitchen Contractors Never Deliver on Their Promises

If you’ve had bad luck with contractors previously, we understand why you would be hesitant to hire contractors again. But you don’t have to be. Just make sure to research them well before you sign on the dotted line. You can even go as far as contacting some of their previous clients for references.

There’s a world of difference between a custom fitted kitchen & an average modular kitchen!

There is an obvious and very fundamental difference between a custom kitchen and a modular kitchen – modular kitchen cabinetry is literally ‘what you see is what you get’, while custom designed, fitted kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards can be anything you want them to be!

With a modular kitchen, you will more than likely end up with appliances that stick out where they shouldn’t, along with drawers and kitchen cabinet depths that are not the answer to your kitchen dreams.  Mass produced modular kitchens come in standard widths and heights, and there is no room at all for any improvement or adjustment at all.  Choice of colour and material is limited to what is manufactured on a large scale, allowing for no flexibility in dimensions and finishes.

The difference in custom kitchens is that you get to select everything from height to depth, width and countertop for every fitted kitchen cabinet and built-in cabinet going into your home, without doors or drawers getting caught or stuck on each other when opened and closed – the budget may have to stretch a little more, but what you get in terms of flow, style and functionality more than makes up for going a few steps further on the design of your custom kitchen!

When the team of innovative, experienced designers at ProReno work to take your dream kitchen from concept to installation, all the components will be designed and manufactured to suit your personal specifications, and to accommodate all of your appliances perfectly, without any ‘filling’.

ProReno manufactures fitted kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards that do not limit you at all where it comes to height, depth or width; it is all designed to make the most of the available space and to make it easy to move around in, fully functional and a total extension of your personal taste in decor.

With the unrivalled range of products available from ProReno, which far outweighs any competitor, you can turn your kitchen into the perfect hub of your home, and, working with the imaginative, creative team of designers at ProReno, finding the right interaction between all the components, brilliant combinations of material, colour, architecture and lighting will be an exciting experience as you watch your dream begin to take shape.

Having the hands-on team from ProReno on your side as they manage your project, design, manufacture and fit high quality kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards is an assurance that, from design to installation, you will have the very best in the industry to guide and advise you through the process of creating your dream kitchen.

Your kitchen design will be carried over from the design team to expert craftsmen who carry the hallmark of ProReno excellence right through to the final installation of your custom fitted kitchen, quickly and efficiently without missing out on the smallest detail, bringing your kitchen to life on time, every time!

There are more than enough satisfied clients who will be happy to tell you about their awesome experience with this team of professionals, and, after 14 years in the industry, ProReno has certainly earned its place as a market leader in the industry, offering competitive prices that can dovetail with all budgets, without compromising on quality or innovation!

Whatever you choose, modular or custom fitted – stylish, comfortable and functional – remember, this is a kitchen you will be living with for a very long time to come!

Things to think about when planning a large, busy kitchen centred on family & entertainment.

Kitchens are no longer pokey rooms off-limits to all but the designated ‘cook’, they are becoming larger hubs designed for family living and entertainment as more and more people choose to eat in rather than out, open spaces that call out as an ideal gathering place.

Ultimately, a very busy kitchen calls for more than sticking to the rules of the ‘work-triangle’. This means that your dream kitchen may involve organising your kitchen into different zones, designed for food prep, cooking, refrigeration, food storage and washing-up areas, depending on the activity going on in this hub of your home.

Setting up countertops for food preparation is made easier when you have everything at hand, from knives and spices to outlets for appliances that are also within reach – this is made easier when you have fitted kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards of course.

Easy access to the oven, stove and microwave, with the right amount of space for easy movement is also essential in a kitchen that is a hive of activity – if you have a large family, you are definitely going to need space to move while the kids do projects and homework in the kitchen.

Important to consider, in terms of functionality, is whether all the kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards are easy to reach height wise, suitable for all contents necessary for easy food preparation and for storage.

Nooks and electrical fittings for kettles, toasters and other kitchen gadgets that are used regularly can also have their own, designated ‘garage’, whether it is behind a fitted cabinet or in an alcove that is purpose-designed.

Obviously a kitchen that is not often used, or is used by a professional chef, will be designed to suit its purposes and will be set out differently in comparison with a busy, activity-based kitchen.

This is no stumbling block for ProReno; they have designed and fitted kitchens in Gauteng for hundreds of families, chefs and hotels, as well as for large developments by the hundreds!

These what seem like little itty bitty things to take into consideration when planning your kitchen renovation or starting from scratch may seem like a lot, however, when you bring your ideas to the kitchen design team at ProReno, your ideas and dreams, matched with the experience earned since 2004 by this team, will bring it all together in a kitchen that is stylish, comfortable and functional for you, your family and friends.

ProReno, at its core, will manage your project, design, manufacture and fit high quality kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards to make living in a large, homey, welcoming and comfortable kitchen a reality.

It is in consultation with ProReno that the basic foundation for a kitchen tailored to suit your personality and lifestyle is laid, moving from there to the design phase, which is always exciting through the use of the latest technology and a range of kitchen products that are unrivalled in this competitive industry!

It really doesn’t matter how big or small your budget is, you can still have the kitchen of your dreams when you work with experienced kitchen design specialists like ProReno, especially when you take into account their market-related prices and the high quality of their products that add true value for money to the budget.

When to think about kitchen lighting for a new or renovated kitchen.

We take a lot of care about how lighting is spread throughout our homes to reflect the level of comfort and aesthetic appeal to affect how we feel when we’re spending time in the various areas of our home, however, when it comes to designing kitchens, we tend to put lighting last on the list.

If you have a family that spends a lot of time in the kitchen, or if it is an area that is often used for entertaining, it’s not just going to be about colours, shapes, textures and functionality, it is also going to involve creating the right ambience and multi-faceted use of lighting to complete the picture.

The kitchen is undoubtedly already the hub of the home, seeming to have a magnet of its own for pulling everyone in, but, just like moths to a flame, the right lighting will amplify the attraction of your kitchen for everyone.

Kitchen lighting is made up of different layers, moving from things like lighting in kitchen cabinets for when the kitchen is on idle to the right kind of light necessary to make working in the kitchen a pleasure.

Although ProReno works within your budget, especially with their market-related prices, you will find it well worth exploring your options with this talented team, so that you are not left with too little in the budget for great lighting to add to the overall ambiance and value of your kitchen!

Although many lights, with clever, innovative design, can function as multi-use lights in the kitchen, it is also essential to plan for lighting that not only lights up work spaces, but also adds accents to the depths and dimensions of the space, such as recessed lighting, and lighting that is purely decorative.

Naturally, after rising to the top of a highly competitive industry since first opening its doors in 2004, the kitchen design team at ProReno will be on hand with a choice of ideas that will perfectly light up your kitchen.

Keeping the balance between the function of lights and the contribution that light makes to create ambience, accent and décor can be a big chunk to swallow alone, but, add your needs to the experience offered by ProReno in tailored kitchen design, and kitchen lighting will take on a whole new meaning.

We are so bombarded with new styles and shapes of lighting these days that it can be overwhelming to decide on the direction that will reflect the entirety of the kitchen of your dreams, however, making informed decisions is made simple with the professional knowledge and solid practical advice on hand from the design team at ProReno.

When you are planning a brand new kitchen, contact the team at ProReno to smooth the way with innovative design, a range of kitchen products unrivalled in the industry, beautiful fitted kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards designed and manufactured by master craftsman…..always delivered on time, within budget!

Ready for a kitchen renovation but don’t know where to start?

By the time you get around to arranging the first consultation with a professional kitchen designer, you’ll already have a pretty good idea about what you’d like in your dream kitchen.

Every kitchen renovation starts from a basic design, which is then enhanced to reflect your personality, individuality, and style with the addition of tailor-made products.

A good place to start is to base your ideas on the foundation of Modern or Contemporary, Traditional or Classic kitchens, and then to work with your design team to put your personal stamp on the template you choose.

What is meant by the terms Contemporary, Modern, Traditional and Classic kitchens?

·         Modern Kitchens:

If you aren’t one for sticking to any rules, a modern kitchen will definitely appeal. This style of kitchen is also very close to what constitutes the design of a contemporary kitchen.

You can do anything you please with a start like this. Mixing hi-gloss products with highly pressurised composites give you free reign to use natural stone and raw woods as ornamentation.

Natural stone and raw woods give a distinct depth to the sleek lines typically associated with modern kitchens. Defining this sleekness is the use of frameless kitchen cabinetry and sleek appliances, offset by design features such as concealed gadgetry and floating shelves.

The modern kitchen is where you get to play with materials and colours to get the balance right, echoing your idea of a dream kitchen in detail.

Fundamental to the design of a modern kitchen is giving everyone in the home a space that’s for a family that spends a lot of time in the kitchen together.

·         Contemporary Kitchens:

Contemporary kitchen design also has a complete lack of rules, along the lines of a modern kitchen design.  Multi-layered materials that cross the spectrum from steel and chrome to natural stone, granite and wood, are all elements that can be used to define personal taste.

Adding ingredients like functional storage solutions and lighting that leans towards track lighting is all part of designing a contemporary kitchen.

Lighting is an issue that’s often overlooked in any kitchen design, but it’s essential to see what you’re doing, as well as to create a warm and inviting kitchen that becomes the heart of the home for all.

Adding highly functional gadgets and built-in appliances into the mix of textures and colours to complete the vision of a warm, inviting space calling to be lived in.

·         Classic Kitchens:

Classic kitchens are the definition of timelessness with the fresh white background that speaks of restraint.  There’s nothing ornate about a classic kitchen, it calls for white or black countertops that’ll never go out of fashion.

Elements that make a classic kitchen a pure expression of your personal taste and style can be added to an eclectic atmosphere.  This is where you can go anywhere, from adding a touch of vintage here and there, to bringing in industrial elements.

Options to do this include using lighting, accessories as well as kitchen chairs and tables.

A classic kitchen is a blank canvass waiting for you to express your individuality in creating the kitchen of your dreams, with restrained simplicity.

·         Traditional Kitchens:

Picture a warm and inviting French farmhouse kitchen, or one that expresses the beauty of nature inside a home hidden in the mountains or hugging a coastline. This’ll give you a good idea of where to start turning a traditional kitchen into one that’s uniquely yours.

Vintage and antique appliances are completely at home in a traditional kitchen, along with cookware, cutlery and crockery to match.  

Traditional kitchens are architectural heaven that allows for molded natural wood, arches and uniquely ornate doors to share space with granite or stone countertops.

Add beveled glass to the doors and even a chandelier, and you’ll have a kitchen that echoes the tradition of kitchens that have been much-loved through the centuries in the old world.

Pros and Cons of DIY Kitchen Renovations

There is some skill involved in renovating your kitchen. First, you’ll need to design a functional space and then you need to make it look good, so you’ll want to spend some time in it.

 Even if you have the required skills, you might be concerned about other factors involved when DIYing your kitchen renovations. Which is why the team at ProReno felt it necessary to give you all the facts about managing your own renovations project.

 Pros

1. It will cost you less

It is true, a DIY kitchen remodel will cost you less because you’ll save on the labour aspect of the project. What they don’t tell you, however, is that you’ll have to buy the tools needed for the project while contractors already own them.

 2. You’ll have more control over the renovation

The fewer people involved, the less complicated the project and the more control you’ll have. Unless, of course, you appoint a reliable contractor like ProReno that keeps you up to date every step of the way.

Cons

 1. It will take longer

A DIY kitchen reno will take longer than if a contractor were to manage the project since you’ll have to do it in your spare time. So, say goodbye to your free time for the next month or so, cause you’ll be spending it in your kitchen.

 2. You’ll need to invest in proper tools

As we’ve mentioned before, you might not have all the necessary tools for a kitchen renovation which you’ll have to purchase. Chances are, they probably won’t get used much after the project is done.

 3. You need to figure out what to do with the debris

When you hire a contractor, they are responsible to remove the rubble and debris from your property but when you DIY, you’ll have to make arrangements for disposal.

 4. You might not be happy with the outcome

Since you’re not a professional renovations contractor, chances are you’ll get stuck at some point. Or if you do finish, the job might not look professional in the end. Which leads us to ask this question: Is it really worth saving a few rands if you don’t get the desired results?

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!

How to determine your kitchen cabinet requirements when planning your kitchen renovation.

When you are planning your kitchen renovation it is a good idea to figure out, as closely as possible how much kitchen cabinetry will constitute your dream kitchen.  Looking at what you are lacking in terms of kitchen cabinets in your current kitchen is going to give you a good basis from which to start, you know what is missing, and you know what would make life a lot easier in the hub of your home by now.

 A few questions to ask yourself on this journey to ensuring that your dream kitchen will have everything in it that opens and shuts in perfect synchronicity with the role your kitchen plays in your lifestyle would be:

 How does your current kitchen cabinet set-up work for you?

Do your kitchen contents spill out onto counter-tops or do they fit in your kitchen cabinets?  Are your cabinets packed to capacity with things that don’t really serve any real purpose?  Going through these fully stuffed kitchen cabinets with a fine tooth comb, you might be surprised to find out how many of the goodies packed in are not actually used, and would not even be missed if you got rid of them.  Kitchens are an amazing magnet for clutter and getting ready for a renovation is going to be the perfect time to de-clutter!

 How do your physical attributes influence your vision of a dream kitchen?

Whether you are left or right-handed, tall, short or medium are all important factors to take into account when planning the perfect kitchen renovation. High cabinets are going to be of no value to you if you can’t reach everyday ingredients with ease!

 How often do you shop?

It’s a good idea to look into your shopping habits when planning your kitchen cabinets, these habits will help in determining just how much cupboard space you really need.  Whether you shop every other day or shop for a couple of weeks at once is going to impact the choices you make regarding the cabinet space you really need for absolute ease of access.

 How many people live in your home?

This is another important aspect to ensuring that you have cabinets that will make it easy for you to keep enough of everything from food to cutlery and crockery to suit the size of your family comfortably.

 Make an appointment for a consultation with the expert team at ProReno to discuss your kitchen cabinet requirements and make informed decisions about the choices that will result in your dream kitchen!

 ProReno has been designing, manufacturing and fitting quality kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards for home owners in Johannesburg and Pretoria since 2004; endorsed by The Kitchen Specialists Association and many satisfied clients, this team will make sure that everything opens and shuts exactly as it should in your new kitchen!

How to choose the right countertop for a kitchen renovation in Gauteng

Countertops are going to be one of the most important decisions you will have to make, whether you are renovating a kitchen or building one from scratch.

The last thing you want is to have to replace or repair countertops every now and then, which means that longevity is at the top of the list of priorities for choosing countertops that last.

It’s obvious that whatever material you choose, you’d like it to be aesthetically pleasing as well, bringing personal style and functionality together in perfect harmony.

There are an abundance of countertops available on the market today, which is going to make the decision more than just a little overwhelming, making it a good idea to look into the pros and cons of different materials available, whether online or in design magazines.

Ultimately, if you work with an established, highly respected company like ProReno, you will have design experts at your side to advise you on your ideas, so that you are in a position to make an informed decision that will more than meet your expectations for a major decision like renovating or building a kitchen from scratch.

What’s also great about Proreno is that they have an unrivalled range of countertops and other kitchen products that are of outstanding value for money, giving you quality at market-related prices that will suit your budget.

Here are two examples of the pros and cons of some of the most popular countertops available:

·         Granite

Pros: Every piece of granite is unique, making each piece one of a kind. With the beautiful colours, patterns and mottling, you are able to choose the perfect colour to suit the style and décor in your kitchen. Granite is also tough.  It stands up to wear and tear for many years due to its ability to withstand heat, splashes of all kinds and any other nicks that may occur while cooking.

Cons: Granite does need to be sealed every now and then to avoid stains, which is a lot less expensive than the alternative of replacing countertops too often.  Proreno is able to design fitted kitchen cabinets that will be strong enough to support the weight of granite – if kitchen cabinets are not strong enough to withstand the weight of granite, sagging is inevitable.

·         Marble

Marble is one of most traditional choices when it comes to countertops.  The glamour and veining all contribute to an overall streamlined, stylish look that never goes out of style.

Pros: If you love baking, marble is the perfect choice for keeping any dough at the perfect temperature, no matter what you may be baking! Heat doesn’t affect marble, and it stays cool no matter the season.

Cons: You may want to think about only using marble in a few areas instead of on every countertop.  Despite sealing, marble can still chip or scratch, and is more likely to stain than granite and other countertop materials.

These are just two examples of what’s out there in terms of countertops.  There are many more, such as soapstone, laminate, butcher blocks, concrete and more, but please consult with the team at Proreno before you make the final choice.

Exclusive fitted kitchens in Johannesburg and Pretoria is what Proreno has been doing for many years successfully, with their attention to detail, along with award-winning service excellence, you will end up with the right countertop to suit your personal style perfectly.

7 Features You’ll Find in the “Perfect Kitchen”

If you’ve ever watched the food channel, you’ve likely experienced kitchen envy. Wishing you had all the features they had at their disposal, making cooking and baking look so effortless and fun. But you know what, you too can have the perfect kitchen. Below are some features you can easily add to your kitchen to make it more functional.

1. Island Cooktop

Recent trends split up ovens and cooktops. When you install your cooktop on your island countertop, your workspace doubles or even triples as does your storage space. What’s even better is that you don’t have to stare at the wall while cooking. If you have an open plan, you can easily communicate with guests or even watch your favourite tv program.

 2. Light

If your kitchen doesn’t have enough natural light, you can install layers of light to cover each area. Hanging lights over the island can add some light to work surfaces while under-cabinet lights will provide proper light on countertops.

 3. Corner Storage

Storage space is always a problem in the kitchen which is why you need to make every centimeter count. Make sure you use the space wisely so that nothing goes to waste. You can use a corner cupboard to store your groceries and if you want to get even more out of the space, add carousel shelving to easily access items at the back.

 4. Divided Storage

Every kitchen has that one drawer where you’ll find all kinds of treasures. It’s a drawer that just never seems to stay organised and when you’re looking for something specific, it’s never there. Divided storage is great for storing your kitchen utensils and give a more finished look.

 5. Bar Sink

Adding an additional sink to your kitchen can be extremely useful. Double your prep areas by installing a bar sink on your island.

 6. Built-in Trashcan

Trashcans are gross, and no one likes to associate grossness with kitchens since that’s where you prepare your food. Consider hiding your trashcan in a built-in drawer.

 7. On-counter Appliance Storage

Let’s face it, appliances aren’t necessarily pretty. And while you don’t want to store it away deep in your cupboards, you also don’t want to show them off. On-counter appliance storage is perfect for this scenario and should be incorporated in every kitchen.

5 Tips to Make Your Kitchen Renovation More Budget-Friendly

Your kitchen is the soul of your home. It’s where you prepare daily meals, enjoy your first cup of coffee and relax while baking your favourite treats. Since you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, it’s vital that the environment is welcoming – functional and pleasing to the eye.

 Renovating your home’s kitchen will add significant value to your home and is typically suggested by most realtors if you’re thinking of selling in the future. But that state-of-the-art kitchen you see on the food channel might set you back quite a bit if you don’t know what you’re doing so here are some tips on how you can save money on your renovation project.

 1. Don’t Move the Existing Plumbing

Be smart when planning your kitchen renovation. Moving kitchen drains and sinks can be costly so try to find a way to work around them. If you’re not crazy about your kitchen’s layout, try to find other ways to change the design like a kitchen island.

2. Reface Cabinets Instead of Replacing Them

Installing brand new kitchen cabinets can be pricey. If yours are still in good condition, consider refacing them with paint or keep the structure and just replace the cabinet doors.

 3. Make Superficial Changes

Sometimes the small changes to your kitchen make the biggest difference. For example, changing your backsplash or the colour of your cabinets won’t cost you much but will give your kitchen an entirely new look and feel.

4. Create a Budget and Stick to It

Put your budget on paper, make sure you have provision for unexpected expenses and then don’t go over the budget!

 5. Use ProReno for Your Kitchen Renovations Pretoria

ProReno is a kitchen cabinet contractor in Pretoria with more than 14 years’ experience in the industry and many satisfied clients to show for it. If you’re looking for affordable, reliable kitchen installations Pretoria, get in touch with the team today!

3 Mistakes to Avoid During Your Kitchen Renovation

Every homeowner dreams of a kitchen that’s stylish, modern, fully equipped and functional but, more often than not, they have to settle for a kitchen that is nothing like they hoped for. Which is why you might want to consider a kitchen renovation to achieve this goal.

 Kitchen renovations can be a challenge considering all the variables that come along with it. You’ll have to make a lot of decisions and sometimes you end up making the wrong ones because you’re overwhelmed. To be honest, expecting any kitchen renovation project to progress without hitting a few bumps in the road might be a little naive.  

 But, by avoiding the following mistakes, you can make the process go smoother. 

 1. Choosing appearance over functionality

There’s nothing wrong with wanting a beautiful kitchen with lots of bells and whistles but does it make sense from a functional point of view? To get the most value out of your kitchen renovation, you’ll want it to be as functional as it is beautiful. Balance is key. Shiny countertops won’t mean a thing if they aren’t durable or show every little scratch.

 2. Not choosing a timeless design

A modern kitchen might be cool but there are some design trends you might want to bypass to retain your property’s resale value. If you’re planning to sell your home in future, stick with a neutral, classic kitchen design.

 3. Not hiring professional kitchen cabinet contractors

Many people opt for a DIY renovation to save a few rands but if you don’t know what you’re doing you might spend more money hiring someone to fix your mistakes. If you want your kitchen renovation to look professional, consider hiring experienced and qualified contractors for the project.

Fitted kitchen cabinets & built-in cupboards add style to your dream kitchen without wasting space

In order to have the kitchen of your dreams it’s important to have an idea of how your kitchen cupboards can be designed to offer easy access to everything you need based on the way you are using it, so that you don’t end up with cupboards that are too high to reach, or those that really just get in the way without being of much use – other than to accumulate things you seldom use.

When you are cooking, whether it is for the family, for a gathering of friends, or, to suit your passion for creating out-of-this-world award-winning dishes as a chef, comfort and functionality are paramount in what is more often than not the hub of any home.

Making the most of the space you have available when you are planning on a new kitchen, or giving the old one a complete makeover, is essential in the beginning stages; meeting with your kitchen design company with a good idea of what works and what doesn’t in your current space is going to make taking the first steps to your dream kitchen so much easier.

If, for instance, you are tall, and provided that you are the chief in the kitchen, the last thing you need is to spend your time in the kitchen folding yourself in half so that you can get to goodies you need in cupboards and drawers that are too low – which is where fitted kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards take first place above anything that is mass produced!

The same applies if you are a little shorter, finding the small step ladder every time you need an appliance or ingredients that are stored a little higher than the rest of the goodies you use on a daily basis, is definitely going to make it worth planning fitted kitchen cupboards that are specifically designed to make finding everything a pleasure.

No doubt about it, if you have planned on having a dream kitchen designed and installed, then fitted kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards are a must! Everything is designed to suit appliances perfectly and to make reaching for everything from pots and pans to ingredients, gadgets and cutlery a breeze, without wasting any space.

ProReno has been designing and manufacturing tailor-made fitted kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards in Pretoria very successfully since 2004, offering a hands-on, personalised service that is focussed on making the most of the space and layout of your kitchen to make it uniquely yours, and only yours!

The extensive range of products offered by ProReno is unrivalled in the industry, and, through the use of the latest technology and software, this team of visionaries takes clients through a process that gives them a 3D picture of how fittings and fixtures will work in the layout so that before the kitchen is fitted by ProReno master craftsmen, clients will be able to see exactly what it will look like!

Having the best possible advice as you select fittings and fixtures is all part of the service excellence offered by ProReno. This team of innovative designers knows exactly how to take your specific requirements into account while considering your budget, without compromising on a superb standard of quality, beautiful workmanship and service excellence that makes creating your dream kitchen with ProReno an exciting adventure, from start to finish!

Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Built-in Kitchen Cupboards

Nothing is made to last forever. Things break and trends change. Same goes for your kitchen. Even if you’re not ready for a complete kitchen renovation, replacing your kitchen cabinets can bring your kitchen to life. So how do you know when it’s time to replace them? Watch out for these signs.

1. Damage

Kitchen cabinets will require repairs over time due to natural wear and tear. But some damages aren’t repairable and while a full kitchen renovation isn’t necessary, you might consider replacing your built-in kitchen cupboards. This will instantly improve the look and feel of your kitchen.

2. Update Style

As we’ve mentioned before, trends change fast and what might have been a gorgeous kitchen ten years ago, is completely out of fashion now. If you are embarrassed to show guests your kitchen, consider renovating it by installing built-in kitchen cupboards that are timeless instead of whatever is in fashion right now. Classic options include shades of white, bamboo and oak.

3. Space and Functionality

Not enough storage space? Difficult to reach cabinets? These are the main reasons you might want to renovate your kitchen. Kitchen manufacturers can help you redesign your kitchen to give you more storage space. They can also help make your kitchen more functional.

4. Mold

Mold does not only compromise the structure of your cabinets; it can negatively affect your family’s health. When caught early, it can be cleaned up but if left untreated, it will continue to grow and eventually you’ll have to replace your kitchen cupboards. Mold is typically caused by a water leak so before you attempt a renovation, it might be a good idea to identify the source to avoid future mold problems.

If it’s time to replace your built-in kitchen cupboards, get in touch with ProReno today. With 14 years of kitchen renovations and hundreds of happy clients, you know you are in good hands.

Place your investment in the right hands when it is time to renovate your kitchen.

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.

Who to contact for unique, fitted kitchens in Pretoria and Johannesburg:

In one word, ProReno.  The team at ProReno will take you from design to kitchen installation with a cost-effective efficiency that won’t leave you without a kitchen for months on end.

There are no middlemen involved, and by the time ProReno has completed your kitchen installation, you’ll want to cook your celebratory dinner for family and friends right then and there.

When you’re ready to take the big leap into a kitchen renovation, make sure you contact ProReno for stylish, functional kitchen design and superb craftsmanship in a dream, fully-fitted kitchen.

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.

Mistakes to Avoid When Hiring Kitchen Cabinet Contractors

Your kitchen is the one room in your house that gets used the most. It makes sense that the wear and tear will be more than any other space in your home. So, when the time comes to renovate your kitchen, you don’t want to waste time and money with unskilled, untrustworthy contractors that will do a substandard job or take forever to finish the job. You need to be extra careful and keep the following in mind when hiring kitchen cabinet contractors.

#1 Not getting more than one quote

Kitchen renovations are considered major home improvements and the worst thing you can do is to settle for the first quote you receive. Do thorough research and find reliable kitchen cabinet contractors offering similar professional services, then get at least three quotes reflecting the same design, materials and hardware to enable you to get an idea of what the market price is.  

#2 Not asking for references

Once you’ve settled on a quote, visit the website or Facebook page of your kitchen cabinet contractor and get feedback from former clients. People aren’t scared to share whether they got good or bad experiences with contractors. If you can’t find anything online, ask your contractor for references and phone them. If you’re satisfied with their response, you can trust that they know what they are doing.  

#3 Hiring kitchen cabinet contractors based on price only

Going for the cheapest quote might be a huge mistake, unless you are satisfied after doing all the necessary research and feel certain that they are the best option. Make sure however, that they aren’t using lower quality materials and that they offer a quality cabinet structure and fit since this might negatively impact the job they do for you.  A further consideration is the professionalism and service levels you receive from the company from the first moment you contact them.  The first impression you get will most likely feed through the whole experience with them.  Remember that the cheapest or even the most expensive quote is not necessarily a reflection of the best value for money or service levels you’ll receive.

5 Ways You Can Increase Storage Space in Your Kitchen

When you spend a lot of time in the kitchen making delicious meals for your family, the last thing you need is clutter. Efficient storage is a necessity in any kitchen.

Your kitchen might be small without any way to expand on the layout but it doesn’t mean you can’t create more space. Below are some simple hacks that will help you utilise the space you already have.

 

1. Pull-Out Trash Bin

Trash bins are bulky and unsightly and most of the time it’s a struggle to find a place for them in the kitchen. So why not hide them in a cupboard? It’s reasonably easy to convert an existing cupboard into a pull-out cupboard to free up some space.

2. Pan Organisers

Pans are probably the most difficult thing to store without it looking cluttered and disorganised. Added to that, they take up a lot of space. But if you store them vertically, you can overcome this issue.  A professional kitchen renovation contractor can build a custom pan cupboard to help you free up some space.

3. Easy-Access Drawers

Utensil drawers are a mess! You can solve this issue with pull-out drawers or drawer dividers that will organise all your utensils and gadgets and make them easier to find.

4. Custom Spice Rack

Having all your spices in one place is vital but it doesn’t have to take up an entire cupboard. A space saving option would be to add a shallow, framed cabinet to empty wall space. You can do it yourself but for a professional end-result, it’s better to let the experts do it.

 

5. Racks and Movable Shelving

So you’re renting and can’t make any changes to your kitchen. No problem. You can easily find removable shelves, racks and organisers at affordable prices. These will give you more surface spaces and get your clutter under control.

Find the style resonates with your concept of a perfect kitchen renovation.

There are four basic kitchen styles that assist to give you a starting point to which you can then add all the personal touches that’ll make it the kitchen of your dreams, echoing your personality and lifestyle boldly.

The very basic styles are modern, contemporary, classic and traditional kitchens, but what you do with these templates is where the fun and your personal stamp starts taking shape.

As always, when planning a kitchen renovation, or building a kitchen from scrap, consider the space with which you have to work and then scrounge for photos that inspire you, to guide you in the right direction for a kitchen you will be happy to live in for many years to come.

Doing this research and bookmarking or keeping visuals of kitchens that appeal to you really do help to guide you in the right direction for the custom-fitted kitchen of your dreams.

When you look at the visuals of the many different styles you’ve combed through, the inspiration will hit home and you’ll know, that’s the one for you! It’s a little like finding that shirt or dress you absolutely fall in love with and have to have!

Let’s look at a few of the favourite kitchen design styles to give you an idea of the direction you may want to take:

·         Contemporary Kitchens:

Contemporary kitchens can be a little hard to define, but in essence, a contemporary kitchen gives you the opportunity to be a little more adventurous in terms of the forms and finishes.  A contemporary kitchen more often than not includes some of the elements and touches you would find in many other kitchen styles.

·         Classic Kitchens:

In short, classic kitchens offer a blank slate of white cabinets and black accents, leaving it up to you to add your personal touches that will make your kitchen as eclectic as you would like it to be – even elements of a traditional kitchen can be incorporated into a classic kitchen.

·         Farmhouse Kitchens:

If you prefer the complete opposite of a sleek classic kitchen and would prefer to have a kitchen that’s warm and homey, much like the kitchens found on farms, then a farmhouse kitchen is going to suit you right down to the ground!  A beautifully big kitchen table on classic flooring, along with open shelves and large sinks, make a farmhouse kitchen easy to use, making anyone drawn to this kitchen want to linger long after meals are over.

·         Traditional Kitchens:

Traditional kitchens bring architecture together with arches and decorative mouldings that cry out for antique finishes that smack of the old world, with touches that speak to your personal style entirely. Traditional kitchens are also clearly defined by the details and personal touches that make the kitchen exclusively yours.

Do the research, dream the dream, and when you’re ready to begin the exciting journey, contact the dream team at Proreno to make sure your kitchen renovation in Johannesburg and Pretoria is in the most trusted hands in the industry!

Marble countertops continue to be the number one choice and for good reason. They are available in various colours, are extremely durable and look elegant.

  1. Neutral Hues

Kitchens these days come in various designs, colours and styles but if you want a classic look that will stay beautiful for years to come, neutral colours are the way to go. For a welcoming, traditional and calm space, stick with shades of white or earthy tones and silver finishes.

  1. Open plan layout

Functionality should be the main priority of your kitchen and the best way to make it happen is with an open plan layout. Focus on functionality and efficiency when it comes to the design of your new kitchen and make sure you leave enough space to move around when cooking family meals.

When doing a kitchen renovation, the end goal is always the same – a space that is beautiful, welcoming and functional and that will stay that way for many years to come.

ProReno offers kitchen renovations and kitchen cupboard designs that will help you create the exact kitchen space you envision. For more information or if you need a quote, get in touch with the team today.

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.

ProReno makes an awesome contribution to kitchen renovations in Johannesburg and Pretoria with their personal hands-on service, taking every client from design to installation cost-effectively and efficiently.

Master craftsmanship, ethical business practices, market-related prices and superb hands-on customer service makes ProReno the first team to call when you’re ready to turn your dream kitchen into a reality.

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.

You don’t have to be stuck with a kitchen you hate. Get in touch with ProReno kitchen cabinet contractors for a quote free quote today!

 1. Less Is More

Especially when it comes to your kitchen. A cluttered and messy kitchen will only make you anxious. When you design your dream kitchen, think about functionality and make sure there’s enough open space for you to move around freely. You’ll thank us later!

 2. Stick with Classic

Unless you want to renovate your kitchen every few years which can become costly, it is advisable to stick to a classic look. White cabinets are always a great idea and can fit into any style and design.

 3. Functionality over Appearance

Your kitchen needs to be functional more than it needs to be trendy. As professional kitchen cabinet contractors, we know exactly which layouts work and which ones don’t. So, if you’re unsure, we’re more than happy to help you sort out the details.

 4. Don’t Settle for Second Best

Cost is always a factor when it comes to kitchen renovations. But if you settle for a cheaper option and it isn’t what you really want, you might not be completely satisfied with the end-result. Instead, spending a little more on what you really want will go a long way.

How to balance the budget on a kitchen renovation.

The decision to renovate your kitchen is a major one, certainly not to be taken lightly in light of ever-increasing prices across the board in an economy on a serious downward spiral.

Having an unlimited budget is a luxury a select few can afford, whereas the rest of us have to work within a realistic budget that won’t lead to bankruptcy!

This is where compromises will have to be made in terms of what you choose, whether its countertops, splash backs, fitted kitchen cupboards, fittings and fixtures.

This is also where the expertise and knowledge the team at Proreno bring much-appreciated clarity about the trade-offs you may need to make in certain areas.  

You can be absolutely certain of the fact that with the unrivalled range of products available at Proreno, there will be a compromise that suits your budget but still brings the style and feel of your kitchen to life.

As one of the top kitchen specialist companies in Gauteng, Proreno cares about considering your budget by offering great, market-related prices for quality kitchen products.

They will work with you to make the compromises you may need to make in order to stick with your budget, and whether it’s a big budget or a small one, you will still have the kitchen of your dreams, despite these compromises.

What to consider when planning a kitchen renovation to suit your budget:

·         Take into account exactly how your kitchen will be used. This the most important point when planning a kitchen renovation. Having a clear goal about what you expect from your kitchen according to how you use it is very important as a starting point.

·         How many people live in the home, and how often you entertain, is going to affect everything from the fridge to the amount of seats at your dining table? If you entertain often, how many guests do you cater for? These are all factors that will affect design choices.

·         Only you will know where you are willing to splurge and where you can save yet still get real value for money.  What will high quality investments in certain aspects of your kitchen do to make everyday life easier, or to solve an issue that is generally just a hassle in your current kitchen?  It’s also essential to consider how much the choices you make in terms of where you splurge and where you save will impact the resale value of your home.

·         Obviously you want aesthetic appeal as well as functionality in your kitchen, but this in an area in which you can make choices that still look stunning, such as choosing quartz instead of granite for countertops – the list of areas in which you can make great product choices that will meet your budget and still give you the kitchen of your dreams is long!

If you’re having trouble trying to figure out where you are willing to compromise and where you absolutely won’t, let the team at Proreno give you professional insight into just how much you can achieve by making clever compromises to meet your budget, and exceed your expectations to boot!

1. Hiring a kitchen renovation contractor in Johannesburg will save you time

Built-in Cupboards vs Walk-in Closets: Which One Is Right for You?

Every human being has their own idea of the perfect home. Some prefer showers while others simply cannot live without a bath. Some swear by open plan living while others like to keep their spaces divided. If we all wanted the same things, life would be very boring.

The same goes for cupboards and walk-in closets.  The primary purpose of this type of storage space is to keep your clothing, shoes and other belongings safe and organised.

Walk-in Closets

Typically, walk-in closets need more space to install. There are various types of walk-in closets, some installed in an alleyway next to the bathroom, others in a separate room. The one you choose will depend on your personal preference as well as the amount of space you have to work with.

Walk-in closets are excellent for organising your wardrobe making it easier to find items quickly. Utilising the corners and angles can be a challenge and might cause you wasted space.

Built-in Cupboards

These are the most common types of closets since they don’t require too much space but can store a decent amount of items. They are typically installed on one of the bedroom walls or in hallways.

It’s easy to utilise all the space since you can add shelves, drawers and other organising systems inside. If well-organised, even though smaller in size, it can easily compete with walk-in closets with regards to storage space. While it might be more difficult to find things when you’re in a hurry if you keep it neat and organised, it won’t be a problem.

There are pros and cons to each closet style and it finally boils down to personal preference and space. For more information or if you need a quotation for built-in cupboards in Pretoria and surrounding areas, get in touch with the team at ProReno today!

Before you even get to the design phase of your new dream kitchen it may be time for a little elbow grease!  This is the perfect time to take inventory of all those small appliances and other kitchen goodies that make life easier in the kitchen, and those that are not really used anymore.

It may not be an easy process to throw out anything that is taking up unnecessary space and to get a good idea of just how accessible the ones are that you wish to keep, but it will be worthwhile!

The right kitchen storage to make everything easily accessible is the dream of anyone who spends a lot of time in the kitchen, which makes it pretty much as important as the space you dream of for the countertops, and it’s worth the time it takes to de-clutter and to work out, basically, what would work for you.

Having a basic idea about the layout of your fitted kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards will be helpful when you sit down with the team at ProReno, masters of design for kitchen cupboards and kitchen renovations in Johannesburg and Pretoria.

The last thing you want to do when you are planning a kitchen is to continue to have to fetch lesser-used kitchen items from a storage room outside of the kitchen. With the right planning, which of course is based on the limitations imposed by the space available, you can make life a whole lot easier in the kitchen.

And it’s not all just about the aesthetic appearance of your fitted kitchen cabinets and built-in cupboards because, more importantly, they have to be functional and easy to access as you move around the kitchen!

Points to consider when planning fitted kitchen-cabinets & cupboards.

No matter what shape your kitchen starts taking in your imagination, or as you go through pages and pages of Kitchen Décor, whether on the web or in magazines, ultimately you are going to need kitchen cupboards designed to suit your personal needs to make it intrinsically yours.

Deep drawers for crockery, pots and pans, different drawers for cutlery and condiments, tall cupboards for groceries, ironing boards and brooms, all of these spaces need to be taken into consideration when planning a kitchen renovation or a new build.

Style and functionality work hand in hand in the perfect kitchen designed to suit your home and lifestyle, and it’s easy to get carried away with aesthetic appeal you may be imagining, but kitchen cupboards and other practicalities that make being in your kitchen comfortable all need to come together to create the balance.

For those who really want sleek lines, planning storage space will be a major focal point during the design phase of your kitchen.  Pull-out food storage cupboards and corner fitted kitchen cupboards that extend fully will make use of every inch of the space, for ease of reach and to retain sleek lines.

These are just a few of the essential points to bear in mind while you are planning a dream kitchen in your imagination, and if it’s a dream kitchen that you are after, then ProReno is the kitchen design team for you.

4 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Remodeling Your Kitchen

A kitchen renovation is one of the best investments you can make in your home. It will add value to your property, increase functionality and ultimately improve your quality of living. It is crucial to map out the type of kitchen you want before you start your renovation process. Get help from a professional to make sure it will work in your space and fit in with your home’s style.

 But before you even start the planning phase, you need to ask yourself some questions.

 1. Why are you remodeling your kitchen?

If you are planning to sell your home in the coming years, it’s probably a better idea to stick with a traditional design with neutral colours. You’ll get a bigger return on investment if you choose a kitchen that most buyers will find appealing.

 If you’re not planning on selling, you can opt for a more personalised design. Either way, make sure your design is balanced, beautiful and works well with the shape and size of the area.

 2. How often do you use your kitchen?

If you don’t spend a good amount of time in the kitchen, investing in a high-end stovetop and oven isn’t preferable. If you do spend a considerable amount of time cooking for your family, you’ll want to invest in appliances that are durable. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure there’s enough space to allow you to cook and interact with visitors all at once.

 3. Is your current kitchen functional?

If your existing kitchen is too small it might be a good idea to expand on the layout. If enlargement isn’t possible, a professional can help you maximise the space you do have by rearranging cabinets and appliances. An island is a great way to add storage space as well as seating.

 4. How much can you spend on your kitchen renovation?

The first step is to determine the budget. By making a list of not negotiable features and the ones that aren’t as important, it will help you to determine areas where you can save money. Make sure you add some extra funds for unexpected costs.

But back to the kitchen! The kitchen is undoubtedly the hub of your home, unless you are single and there is only room for one in it, however, in bigger kitchens and homes you’re in for a lot of trouble if you don’t plan well enough to fit everyone in – whether you like it or not, this is where they’re all going to be hanging out!

It doesn’t seem to matter how comfy your lounge or dining room is, inevitably the whole bunch is going to end up in a divinely aromatic kitchen to chat and laugh!  Give it up and make sure that when you invest in a kitchen makeover, you do it the right way so that it makes your own time in the space a lot easier, and adding great value to your home on the whole.

The kids are going to be wandering in and out as they scratch around in the fridge or try to poke around in the pots, and this is where you get to know your kids and friends better than you would in any lounge – the atmosphere just seems to engender an opening of hearts!

Bearing this all in mind, added to the challenge of getting your kitchen design just right, here are a few kitchen design mistakes ProReno will help you avoid with careful planning:

·         What do you need most in your kitchen, besides all the other trappings, kitchen-cabinets, fittings and fixtures?  The right countertops that will not only be attractive and suit the all-round design, but will also give you space on countertops where you need it most. Well-planned countertops not only make for a comfortable working space, but also to take into account any smaller appliances that will need to be installed on the countertop. Naturally, space and budget need to meet each project, which is what makes countertops one of the most important parts of your kitchen design. The wrong countertops in the wrong places are going to be a mistake you will live with for a very long time to come! Oh, and make sure that you have the right outlets for the gadgets that will be permanent additions according to your space and needs on the countertops!

·         Another expensive mistake you can make in the planning of your kitchen is not to understand a little more about what is called The Golden Triangle in your kitchen, and there is good reason for this name! It signifies the all-important triangle of the sink, fridge and stove, which is where functionality is essential to your comfort as you move around the kitchen.

These are only two examples of the mistakes that can be made in kitchen renovations, but there are a lot more that the expert team at ProReno will make sure you avoid! Flow, functionality, comfort and personal style is everything your kitchen should reflect!

During your first consultation with ProReno, all these points will be discussed and with an experienced kitchen design team at your side, not only will all these issues meticulously be taken into account, but, as the process of design proceeds, you will be able to visualise the end product through the innovative use of a 3D computer program.

Choose the best team for your kitchen renovation to cover every mistake that could be made in the design of your kitchen and make that call to ProReno as soon as you are ready to get going!

Don’t Let Your Kitchen Renovations In Pretoria Drain Your Finances – Just Use ProReno

There are many reasons why you would want to renovate your kitchen – to deal with damage, to update your kitchen style, or to create more space. A complete kitchen revamp can be costly but it’s extremely beneficial if you want to increase the value of your home. So, if you are thinking about renovating your kitchen, it’s important to create a budget to manage your spending.

Setting up a budget for your kitchen renovations shouldn’t be too much of a challenge. However, costs can vary significantly depending on whether you go the DIY route or hire professional contractors. Other factors to consider is the size of your kitchen and the quality of materials used.

First, you’ll have to decide whether you’ll hire kitchen renovation contractors or if you will attempt the renovation project yourself. While kitchen renovations aren’t exactly brain surgery, you do need to possess certain skills and expertise to do a professional job. Something else to consider is the amount of time that will go into your renovation project. The DIY route will take much longer than hiring professionals.
