Real estate experts agree that one of the best ways to increase the value of any home is to update the kitchen. Even if the house doesn’t go up for sale, it’s always a breath of fresh air and creates a whole sense of excitement to have a newly renovated kitchen.

In fact, if there’s just one area of the house that you have the budget to improve, it is best to make it the kitchen. And that’s because the kitchen these days has turned into something else – it’s no longer just the place where we cook our meals. It’s also now a working and an entertainment area. It’s where we sometimes do the work we take home from the office and also where we entertain our guests. The kitchen, in the recent years, has turned into the true centre and main showpiece of any house.

And these are just some of the main reasons why our client, Jane S., approached us to help her redesign and renovate her kitchen.

The Problem

Jane’s kitchen was over 25 years old; which means it’s old for any kitchen! What’s more, it just wasn’t functional anymore, the tiles were outdated, as well as the cabinets and the countertops. Plus there was a lot of wear and tear from so many years of use, which becomes a bit of an eyesore over time.

What We Did

She learned about The Kitchen Place through a friend and contacted us about her problem kitchen. We scheduled a time to sit down together to discuss her needs, in addition to gathering all the information we needed to get started. We asked her to identify the problems she had with her old kitchen, explain the new look and feel she desired, and highlight the overall experience she wanted to get out of her new kitchen. We drew up our plans, which she happily accepted, and then our team went to work.

We modernised everything just to make sure that Jane’s kitchen wouldn’t appear dated and was fully functional for today’s families. We replaced countertops and the splashbacks. We redesigned her kitchen cabinets, making them simple yet elegant. We kept practicality in mind when we created the layout to ensure everything the chef would need was within easy reach. We also made sure that Jane had enough storage space for all her kitchen tools and cooking ingredients.

The Outcome

In the end we were able to design and create Jane’s dream kitchen, on time and within budget. Needless to say, there was a huge difference between the old kitchen and the new. Everything was now updated and she no longer had to shy away from entertaining in her kitchen.
