A kitchen renovation is one of the most popular home improvements in Australia and as such there are alot of kitchen retailers out there.
Once you have given enough thought to exactly what you want from your new kitchen, visit as many kitchen showrooms as you can. This will provide insights into the latest kitchen design trends and some idea as to the capabilities of each individual kitchen retailer.
Always remember that when selecting a kitchen retailer it is important to look beyond the glamour of the showroom. It is the skill of the designer and the installation team that are the most important factors.
Here are some great tips:
- Ask friends and family for referrals
- Read online reviews before making a purchase
- Have a good idea of your budget
- Keep asking question throughout the whole process
- Ensure the company you are dealing with is an established company, with a sound business record
- Once you select a kitchen retailer meet with the designer as soon as possible, designers will bring all your ideas together and can be invaluable in highlighting potential issues
- Communicate with all your trades early and often
Finally, only deal with a company who you feel you can trust.
