Making the decision to renovate your kitchen can sometimes be an easy one. The current layout doesn’t work for you; the style has become dated over time; you need some extra space; or you want to make an investment in the future value of your home. Where it becomes more complicated, however, is deciding what style your new kitchen will embody. While this can be a tough decision to make, it’s a crucial element to lock down before moving any further in the renovation process. A clear end vision will make it much easier to be decisive on the multiple options and choices you’ll encounter as you go.

If you’re not happy with your kitchen, it’s easy to point the finger at the design - however in many cases, it’s a combination of smaller decorating factors contributing to the bigger issue. Fixing these common decoration mistakes could be the key to unlocking a brand new feel in your tired kitchen. Sometimes transformation can be achieved with a few impactful changes, rather than a full-scale renovation. Here are the decor mistakes to be on the lookout for in your own kitchen - and how to reverse them to uncover a kitchen you’ll love to spend time in.

Developers and homeowners alike are becoming more aware of the implications that kitchen choices can have for the environment, both during manufacture and installation, as well as their design and ongoing use.

As such, it’s increasingly important for developers to make informed choices about their kitchen supplier and the designs they use. Here are a few of the key considerations to look for when taking a green approach to the kitchens in your development.

One of the most exciting elements of updating your kitchen is planning out its style; browsing Pinterest or design sites for inspiration, and breathing new life into a tired space. But sometimes it can be difficult to narrow down all of these enticing options and decide on just one to implement into your design. It doesn’t have to be this way, however - two-toned cabinetry is a growing trend that lets you have the best of both worlds. Here’s how to make it work. Create a contrast To create a feeling of space in a smaller kitchen, incorporate contrasting colours between your upper and lower cabinetry. Using a light palette on top lessens the harsh division between wall and cabinet, and keeps the weight in the bottom half of the space. This combination gives you the neutrality and airiness of a white kitchen, while still letting you play

As with any project, going ahead with a kitchen renovation involves a lot of research before getting a contractor involved. And with online research now easier and more convenient than ever before, it’s easy to feel like you have checked every box when it comes to your renovation. Online research is the first step. But it does not compare to the insights and inspiration you’ll get from visiting a showroom.

One of the most satisfying things about working in kitchen renovations is helping to deliver someone’s dream kitchen, and completely transforming the space. Transformation is an understatement when talking about the project that Apollo Kitchens undertook in Carrington, a suburb in Newcastle’s maritime precinct.

Before - it was hard to envision a kitchen in the space in its original condition! The end result is this breathtaking kitchen, a result of close collaboration between the homeowners, the builder, and Apollo Kitchens.
