4 Kitchen Renovation Myths Debunked
Kitchen Depot are debunking 4 of the most common kitchen renovation myths to save you the hassle. For more kitchen renovation tips, visit our blog page!
Myth #1: “Going with the Flow will be Fine”
If you believe that you can plan your kitchen renovation as you go, then you have been swallowed into the kitchen renovation myth #1. This is a major no-no. You cannot plan your kitchen renovation as you go; you will end up with appliances that do not fit, colours that don’t match, a final look that is far from what you envisioned and extremely over-budget. Plan everything before you begin to assume that there is minimal room for error.

Myth #2: DIY Is a Major Money-saver
Whilst this is somewhat true, it only applies if you are a DIY queen/king. Most of the time, our team are called in to fix a DIY project gone wrong. Not only are failed DIY’s frustrating and a waste of time, they also cost you money. Therefore, if you are not 100% confident in your DIY ability, pay a little bit extra for a professional to handle the task and save yourself money in the long run. Also, by the time you buy the tools and materials that you need, a professional could have done it for cheaper.
Myth #3: Following a Trend is a Must
Whilst everyone enjoys a trendy kitchen, you have to make the decision based on your home and your family. It is important to think long-term about what future buyers will think if you want to sell, or how it will look when the trend is replaced with something else. Consider how the trend will look compared to the rest of your house, as well as whether it is a short-lived trend or if it will shift to becoming a classic.
Myth #4: Renovations will be True to Your Budget
This is probably the biggest myth concerning kitchen renovations. The final cost of renovations will most likely not be true to your budget. Kitchen renovations can be unpredictable so give your budget a bit of room to move. Contractors give estimated quotes that can fluctuate due to breakage or unforeseen obstacles.
