Top 3 Upgrades to Consider for a Mini Kitchen Renovation


Has your kitchen lost its charm? If you feel that your kitchen isn’t as attractive or as functional as it once was, then a mini kitchen renovation may be what you need.

Now, don’t get the wrong idea – a mini kitchen renovation is nothing like a full kitchen renovation. Unlike a full renovation, a mini kitchen renovation involves updating only certain features of your kitchen. A mini renovation will also allow you to use your kitchen during the renovation and it won’t cost you anywhere near the cost of a full kitchen renovation.

But which features of your kitchen should you upgrade? Let’s look at the current trends.

According to Houzz’s 2018 Australia Kitchen Trends Study, benchtops, cabinets, and faucets are the most commonly upgraded features in a kitchen. Houzz reports that of all homeowners who improved their kitchen last year, 94% upgraded their benchtops, 90% upgraded their cabinets, and 88% updated their faucets.

Today, I’ll we’ll take a look at these improvements.

If there’s one feature that can make or break the look of your kitchen, it is your benchtop. It’s quite easy to upgrade your benchtop without disturbing other features of your kitchen. And, the results will be absolutely fantastic – you can completely transform your space with very little effort.

Laminate and stone are popular materials you can consider for your new benchtop. While stone benchtops are far more luxurious and attractive than laminate benchtops, stone is not always the ideal choice. In such case, you can find laminate benchtops available in great designs that offer attractive natural stone-looking finishes.

2. Kitchen Cabinets

There’s no denying that kitchen cabinets occupy a lot of visual space in any kitchen. By giving your cabinets an upgrade, you can completely change the look and the functionality of your space.

While some people think that refacing or repainting kitchen cabinets works is just as good as an upgrade, this is not true. Cabinets wear out with time, and repainting a worn-out cabinet won’t make it any more functional – especially if you don’t improve the layout either.

Preassembled kitchen cabinets are the best choice for a mini kitchen renovation. They are delivered ready for installation, which means you complete your entire renovation within a weekend’s time.
