Why You Need to Visit a Kitchen Showroom Before Renovating
Kitchen renovations might seem easy these days with home renovation shows on TV, Youtube vlogs and Pinterest. The truth is that a renovation is a huge undertaking and one we only encourage you to pursue after you pay a visit to a kitchen showroom. A new kitchen renovation can totally transform your home environment, add thousands to the value of your house and it is a once (or twice) in a lifetime project that everyone should do at some point in their lives. Here are our reasons why it is so important that you visit a kitchen showroom before pressing forward with your kitchen renovation.
Meet with the professionals
If it is your first time renovating and you do not have any industry experience, it will be hard to make informed decisions that lead to a quality kitchen renovation that is also durable and safe. When you meet with a team of experienced designers and project managers at a kitchen showroom, they will assist you in selecting and designing the best kitchen cabinets and joinery for your home. The experts will listen to your ideas, needs and wants and provide a range of sustainable and realistic options for you to choose from. This customised advice is something you cannot get from an online kitchen showroom or on Pinterest.
Kitchen renovations are not cheap undertakings. Not speaking to the professionals before renovating could cost you thousands in money and months in time lost if something goes wrong. Do not leave this to chance. Pay a visit to your closest kitchen showroom. At Apollo Kitchens, we have a team of award-winning designers so you know your kitchen will be unique, quality and long-lasting.
Experience the kitchen
By visiting a kitchen showroom you can see and touch the quality of the kitchen you are building. This experience you cannot get online. Visiting a kitchen showroom you will be able to feel the finishes and textures of benchtops and cabinets, experience the functionality of the kitchen drawers and test the sturdiness of stones, splashbacks, and floorboards.
Visiting a kitchen showroom is the closest experience you will get to setting foot inside your completed kitchen and it is an exciting experience you do not want to miss out on. Any doubts you have along the way on finishes, colours and textures could be addressed in one kitchen showroom appointment. Not to mention they are free, so we suggest that you make two to three visits to the showroom to weigh up your options.
Be inspired and explore new options
Unfortunately, it is harder to return kitchen appliances, paint, or joinery online than it is a pair of shoes. Looks can be deceiving and it is easy to feel the pressure to make irrational decisions online when you are keen to get your kitchen renovation on the way.
Visiting a kitchen showroom will allow you to get up close and personal with the kitchen that is about to be yours. Unless you have money to burn, you really should try before you buy, just like you would an expensive car or a new apartment or house. Stepping into a kitchen showroom you will find a range of options that you may not have even considered. You will be inspired by new concepts, technology, and finishes. It will be hard to walk out of the kitchen showroom having decided exactly what you want, so take it slow and choose wisely. Visiting a kitchen showroom, you will be able to work with the experts who can show you the full range of options and give you an indication of how everything will look in your home.
Find better-priced options
As mentioned, a kitchen renovation is an expensive project. We always suggest that you identify a budget prior to making any decisions. If you have not had the chance to establish a budget, visiting a kitchen showroom might be just the exercise necessary to understand the prices attached to each element of your new kitchen.
Working with our team of experts at Apollo Kitchens will give us a sense of your budget and help us find ways to accommodate accordingly. We will also provide a range of options across different price points and find ways for you to save money wherever possible.
