Will renovating the kitchen add value to my home?

Kitchen renovations go a long way in terms of adding value to your home. A new kitchen can enrich not only your daily life, but also increase your home’s value. And you don’t need a complete overhaul of your kitchen, either. In fact, most kitchens only require a few touch-ups to make them amazing.

If you are looking to do a larger kitchen renovation, a smart approach involves considering an open-plan living area by removing walls or repositioning the kitchen. This allows you to create a more spacious living area which has the potential to increase the resale value of your property.

Your kitchen is the heart of your home. Whether you are gathering with loved ones to prepare and share meals or enjoying the ritual of preparing your morning cup of coffee, the kitchen is where the magic happens. You’ll want to make sure this space is functional, efficient, and stylish as when it comes to selling your home this. 

How much does a kitchen renovation cost?

Our Renovation Consultants in Waikato have completed kitchen renovations ranging from $30,000 - $100,000+*.

Your local Refresh team will work with you to develop a design that works with your budget - whether this allows for a practical and attractive makeover or a high-end kitchen remodel.

And if unforeseen circumstances arise during the remodel that might affect that bottom line, your Renovation Consultant can swiftly problem solve to find a solution that works for your wallet.

Kitchen renovation design ideas

With so many kitchen renovation ideas out there, it can be an exciting and challenging endeavour to choose the right style for your kitchen. Your Renovation Consultant will work with you to reveal the design that best compliments your home and lifestyle. A few kitchen types that Refresh has recently worked on include:

Modern kitchens, that are extremely versatile as they embrace a neutral colour palette, layered lighting sources, and interesting combinations of materials.

Shaker style kitchens which blends the contemporary with the traditional to create a highly functional and efficient workspace with ample storage in the form of Shaker cabinetry. These exceptionally crafted cabinets feature symmetrical panels and understated hardware for a more classic look.

Hamptons style kitchens that embrace a refined, coastal look and feel. Think white interiors, large pendant lighting, marble benchtops, and tasteful wooden furniture.

What kitchen styles are popular in Waikato?

Modern designs with open-plan layouts are hugely popular in Waikato kitchens. Low-maintenance materials, storage and appliances are key to this style. Central islands are common within modern and updated kitchens as they provide a hub for families and social gatherings. Other than that, light and fresh colour palettes are the current trend as they provide a base for further personalisation.
