Kitchen and Bathroom Refurbishment Somerset West – A refurbishment is about making what you have work and look better.

Is your kitchen looking tired, outdated, or just plain not stylish? Here are some ways of giving your space a quick face lift without breaking the bank.
The kitchen is often called the heart of the home, and that has a lot to do with the fact that we spend the majority of our time in there, not only preparing food, but also reflecting on the events of the day with our loved ones.
Replace the Benchtop
Replacing a laminate benchtop with a square-edge stone will instantly update a kitchen. A 20mm thick benchtop is all you need for a quick facelift and it will also help keep the cost down. Look for a quartz product or more expensive natural stone options. While you’re at it, why not replace a top mounted sink with a more modern under mount sink and new mixer. If you currently have an old large or double-bowl sink but don’t use it that much, go smaller and add extra bench space instead.
Install a New Splashback
Patterned tiles were very popular in the 70s and 80s and are one of the first things to date a kitchen. Tiles are still the cheapest splashback option so either replace the old tiles with new modern ones or paint over them with tile paint following a thorough clean and application of primer.
Paint or Remove Cabinets
Give an all-white kitchen a modern makeover by painting bottom cabinets and the front of the island bench in a contrasting darker colour like charcoal or black. If the kitchen looks all too cabinet heavy, another trick is to remove some of the upper cabinet doors to open up the look of the space. These open spaces can be used to display nice crockery or decorator items. Don’t forget to fill and paint the hinge holes!
Replace Handles and Accessories
By far the cheapest trick is to replace dated, plastic or broken handles with new modern ones. If you choose stainless steel then think about other stainless steel accessories, like small appliances or a utensil holder, which will add to the look. Add a stainless steel tray with a high rim to group together daily cooking needs like oil, vinegar and condiments. New lighting can also make a huge difference and help extend a theme, developed through all accessories.
Consider a built in cooktop and oven. One way to get around not being able to match the old cabinetry around the new appliances is to use a brushed stainless steel or aluminium laminate product that will tie in with the appliances and enhance the modern look. And finally, no kitchen should be without a dishwasher. Even if you can only fit a dish drawer it’s worth losing some cabinet space for. Fill in any cabinetry around it or underneath it with a similar stainless steel laminate.

Kitchen and Bathroom Refurbishment Somerset West – Bathroom Considerations
Finding a Tradesman
If you’re looking for the best possible finish, you are better off having one company to design, source and install your bathroom rather than having various trades coming in one at a time.”
Furnishing your new bathroom
Whether fitting yourself or using a specialist, you’ll need to decide what will go into your new bathroom.
Many people use their existing bathroom as a template, but start with a blank canvas to create a space that enhances your lifestyle. Don’t forget bathroom storage space for towels, toilet rolls and toiletries. It’s worth working this into the original design to ensure you can fit everything in.
Lighting can be a key detail, with basics starting at downlighting and ranging to back-lighting mirrors and lit ‘feature walls’.
How long will it take?
When it comes to practicalities it is important to consider what constitutes a realistic time-frame. Bathrooms can take between one and four weeks to complete, and depending on the size of your house the work could be rather intrusive.
If you only have one bathroom, you might want to wait until you go on holiday or go and stay with friends or relatives – the joy of coming home to a brand new bathroom will more than make up for any inconvenience.
