kitchen renovation

How good are tiles? I love them. They are undoubtedly one of the most versatile and flexible building materials. They can be used in so many areas of a home and on multiple surfaces, and they can be used internally and externally. They offer so much “bang for your buck”, which is why they’re my favourite reno product.

With tiles, you can renovate just about any room of the house in the week!

Kitchen – Tiles are one of the most favoured splashback choices and take no time at all to install. By simply updating your splashback with modern feature tiles or kitchen splashback tiles, you can transform an outdated kitchen into a contemporary space. Tiles can also be used for flooring and will also have a significant impact on the overall design.

Suggestions: Consider the following feature tiles for your new splashback; Tuscany Wood Light Grey Short Herringbone and Tuscany Iran Grey Penny 20mm.

Bathroom – Tiles, of course, play a vital role in the design of a bathroom also. If your bathroom is crying out for an update, then know you can retile an entire bathroom in a week.

Suggestions: A couple of popular bathroom tile choices are Matang Mid-Grey and Pianura White.

Laundry – Tiles are a great option for a laundry splashback as well as the kitchen. You can either tile over existing tiles or remove and replace them to give your laundry room a fresh new look, which can be done within a week.

Suggestions: Both Isla Navy and Brickbold Almond are proving to be popular tile choices for laundries.

new kitchen tap

Tapware offers an affordable update for various rooms of the home. For less than $100, you can get new tapware to update outdated or leaking taps, and they can be installed in a matter of minutes. You don’t even need a plumber to change them.

Kitchen – Today, a kitchen tap is just as crucial in the overall design of a kitchen as the splashback or even the choice of cabinets. This is because of the wide variety of styles and designs available. With just the addition of a new tap, you can change the entire look of your kitchen design.

Suggestions: Popular kitchen taps include the modern Lauren Project Sink Mixer and the Sink Mixer And Sprayer Unit.

Bathroom – Upgrading bathroom tapware is one of the best ways to add value to a home and to make it more presentable. Best of all, it can be done in no time at all. With the introduction of black tapware and mixed metal tapware, you can easily update an old-fashioned bathroom to give it a modern touch.

Suggestions: Consider our black tapware range or the Cube tapware range.

Laundry – You will be surprised by how stylish laundry tapware has become. If you’re tired of your dull laundry room, adding a new trendy tap may be the refresh for you. Don’t forget washing machine tapware too!

Suggestions: A couple of taps for you to consider are the Cube Hi-Rise Kitchen Mixer and the Round Hi-Rise Kitchen Sink Mixer.

stone benchtop

Installing a new benchtop is another excellent way to transform your kitchen in a week altogether, and depending on your choice of material, it can be relatively inexpensive.

There are many benchtop materials to choose from, including laminate, which is the most economical; timber or stainless steel, which is middle of the range; and engineered stone, which comes in at the top of the field; but it does make the most significant impact.

Suggestions: You will find a range of both laminate and engineered stone benchtop designs in our store, but the most popular continues to be Yukon Blanco and White Storm; both engineered stone.

Bathroom Accessories

If updating the tiles or tapware in your bathroom seems like a little too much work to take on in a week, or it’s outside your budget, you can also consider updating your bathroom accessories to give the space a little refresh.

Just like tapware, bathroom accessories, this being; towel rails, toilet brush and toothbrush holders, robe hook, etc., become outdated over time. The good news is they are affordable to replace and easy to install.

kitchen appliances

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to update your kitchen without actually touching the kitchen itself, then the answer is shiny new appliances.

Your fridge, dishwasher and oven are the largest, and are, therefore, the more apparent appliances of a kitchen. If you have old white goods, then it’s time to get with the trends and update to modern stainless steel appliances.
