Kitchens are the heart of a home. When renovating a kitchen, it’s often hard to decide which things to splurge on and which things to save on. Here are our 3 favourite kitchen renovation items to splurge on that will give you lots of bang for your buck:
Appliances Spending a little more on energy saving, higher-end appliances will serve you well in the future. Not only will they require less maintenance, but they’ll often save you money on your electrical and/or water bills.
Lighting Well-lit kitchens are both beautiful and functional. Spend a little extra on making sure you have all of the lighting you might use in your kitchen – ambient lighting (pot lights in the ceiling that light up the entire room), task lighting (lights over the work areas like the sink and stove) and under-cabinet lighting.
Custom Cabinetry Touches Even cabinets purchased from a big box store can be altered and customized a little to use every square inch of available space. Even if you can’t afford custom cabinets, consider hiring a contractor to help you install your cabinetry and customize it to fit your space. For example, building out cabinetry around a fridge looks like a designer touch.
