Kitchen Renovations in Melbourne: Your 2018 List of “Must-Have” Kitchen Upgrades

While kitchen renovations in Melbourne can involve a multitude of items, there are certain upgrades that we consider as “must-have” features, especially in 2018. Below, we share a partial list of these in order to help you choose which ones you may like to add to your kitchen remodel.

Quartz Countertops

As with last year, quartz countertops, also known as engineered stone countertops, are a must to include in a kitchen remodel. The reason for this is that they are low maintenance, durable and do not require any sealing unlike their granite and marble counterparts. Also, these countertops come in a wide, unique array of colours and patterns. You easily can find the right one for your needs regardless of the décor style of your kitchen.

A Combination of Finishes

You can continue to combine stone, wood and metallic finishes in 2018. No more do you need to limit your choices to create the ideal kitchen ambiance. Today, you can broadcast your unique personality through your choices of finishes for the various features in your kitchen that range from the countertops to the floors.

Filtering Taps

The quality of drinking water is a major concern for many homeowners at present. To improve your water quality easily, you should install a filtering tap that removes unsavoury elements from the water before it comes out of the tap. There also are taps that will carbonate, heat or perform all three actions to the water.

Open Shelving Trends in 2018

Forget about cabinet doors on your shelving. When you leave the shelves open, it is easy to locate all your dishes and other cooking and eating elements. Also, this gives the kitchen a more open feeling. You can opt for glass on the doors for a modern touch that will also accomplish this same effect.

Customised Cabinet Drawers

Another “must-have” kitchen feature in 2018 is the inclusion of customised cabinet drawers that serve distinct purposes. Examples of these include deep drawers for storage for pots and pans, warming drawers and drawers that contain trash and recycling bins.

Work Islands Make Food Prep Easy

A work island is always a great addition when you upgrade your kitchen this year. If you cannot install a permanent one, then add one that is on wheels, so you can move it out of the way in between uses.
