Most of us would love a new kitchen, but think it is financially beyond our reach. This doesn’t have to be the case. You can achieve a beautiful kitchen on a budget by applying some smart refurbishment techniques.

I was delighted recently to contribute some advice for loan comparison site Rate City, who have recently published a great article about how to renovate your kitchen on a budget. Here are some essential tips:

Make the Most of the Space

One of the key things about kitchen design is to measure correctly and find innovative uses for the available space. Integrated storage solutions are a great way to maximise the space in a kitchen. If you’re unsure, it’s important to get help from an experienced professional.

Cheaper Options

Engineered stone benchtops are a more cost effective alternative to natural stone and are much lower maintenance, while still looking just as luxurious. Add tiled or glass splashbacks and stainless steel kkckboards to finish the look.
