Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best colour for a kitchen?
The first thing you will want to consider is the vibe you want your kitchen to exude. Most homeowners opt for neutral or pastel colours such as light blue, green, gray, or even white to let people feel warm and welcome, while some may also use shades of red or yellow which are associated with appetite.
It may also be a good idea to pick out the furniture and appliances that you are going to install before deciding on the colour of the kitchen, as these will help you shape the colour motif you are going to use for the space. White is your safest option as this will mesh well in most palettes. White also gives off a clean and immaculate impression.
We would also advise making use of toned down shades for your space in most cases. Painting your walls with neutral shades is also a great idea and it can provide a subtle backdrop that allows bold coloured kitchen finishes to stand out.
What is the best flooring to put in a kitchen?
For this, we have two considerations: your preferred style and foot traffic.
Wood floors are very popular because they provide your home with a warm, earthy and welcoming feel and as a bonus are made from sustainable materials. We can provide a wood floor that is resilient to heavy foot traffic and water, ensuring that it will stay in great condition for a long time.
We can also replicate this effect with laminate flooring which is easier to install and more affordable.
The more people using your kitchen the sturdier your flooring will have to be. You can opt for flooring with porcelain or ceramic tiles. Tiles are the strongest of all your options and are a great choice for busy restaurant kitchens.\
Vinyl is also a resilient yet budget friendly choice and suitable for those who prefer a softer feel and vinyl also has some great colour options. Available in loose lay or commercial grade rolls, we can provide you with a vinyl floor solution that compliments your kitchen.
How much value does a kitchen add to my home?
If you are looking to resell your property, it’s a good idea to give your kitchen a spruce up. First impressions matter when selling any property to prospective buyers as they will look at the kitchen as a key part of the home. After all this is where meals are prepared and served. Many families share special moments while enjoying dinner.
In terms of value a quality kitchen renovation will impact your home with an old kitchen the most. By investing in a kitchen makeover or renovation you can increase the selling price of your house by at least 5% although this number can go as high as 15% in resale value.
