How High-investment Purchases Can Save You Long-term
When designing a new kitchen, it can be tempting to skimp on some areas in order to splurge on one or two big-ticket items. This is perfectly fine, so long as the buying decisions you make are considered, accounting for the lifetime value of your kitchen.
The more you spend, the more you save
Opting to spend a bit more than you may have first been willing to on elements like work surfaces and a bespoke kitchen will always pay off in the long run. Firstly, investing in custom joinery for your kitchen renovation means the fundamentals of your space are designed to suit your lifestyle, so you’re not likely to be ripping them out again any time soon.
Choosing to partner with a custom joiner like Apollo Kitchens also means the quality of the materials used will be of a much higher standard than flat-pack pieces. Higher quality finishes ensure better durability when it comes to the wear and tear of your kitchen, meaning not only will they stand the test of time, things like your work surfaces are more likely to be more heat, water and stain resistant, saving the need to replace or repair.
Don’t ignore energy efficiency labels
Those unsightly stickers are put on your whitegoods for a reason. They indicate just how much money you stand to save over time on bills. It may cost you more upfront to purchase a top-end appliance like a refrigerator, but choosing one with a 10-star energy efficiency rating can save you as much as almost $1000 in running costs over a 10-year period, compared to one on the other end of the spectrum. Thinking long term, this saving is enough to offset the extra upfront cost of the appliance, plus you get a piece that is better quality, and better for the environment.
