You have a budget of $5000, so how can you get design from the high street that has an individual look? There are many ways you can have a stylish kitchen with a budget price tag.
Firstly, ensure that you have you kitchen properly measured, as even the slightest mistake can be costly. Solid wood and glass are more expensive than melamine finishes, but you can add interest with a different door inlay, such as Shaker, or by mixing two cabinetry choices. Handless are can be a great way of customizing – if you want a traditional kitchen, opt for ornate version, such as basketweave or bevelled detailing. For a contemporary look, choose high-polished stainless steel or chrome.
Instead of selecting grarute or solid wood, opt for a more affordable material, such as laminate. There’s a huge variety of colours and textured finishes available, plus it’s a practical and hard-wearing choice.
When it comes to lighting, think carefully about how much you need – it’s easy to go overboard. Concentrate on preparation areas first and ambient choice second.
Shop around to find the best value for money. Some kitchen retails offer their own brand, which can be more affordable, and they may even price –match, so do your research online. In terms of which type of appliances to pick, choose a basic fan-assisted oven, opt for a gas domino hob – avoid induction models as they can be pricey – and consider a colourful fridge freezer to add wow factor. Small appliances are an easy and lower cost way of achieving an individual look, too.
For a cost- effective and durable kitchen floor, versatile vinyl is a great choice. Available in a range of colours, textures, patterns, and styles, it’s understandably popular, as it’s inexpensive and hard-wearing. It can be bought in tile or sheet form and mimics the appearance of much more expensive materials.
