Why You Should Visit a Showroom Before Renovating Your Kitchen
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.
But online research does fall short in terms of offering visual perspective and solutions, and it can be hard to envision how some of these amazing spaces you see online will translate to an actual physical space.
Here’s why we recommend visiting a kitchen showroom as part of your planning for a kitchen renovation.
Get hands on
A kitchen showroom gives you the opportunity to test out different finishes, materials, storage solutions and fittings. Open cupboard doors, run your hands over benchtops and see how seamlessly storage can be integrated into a kitchen.
Showrooms give you a better understanding of how much room you’ll need to allocate for things like appliances and island benches, and give you a chance to test out different designs and layouts as you’d actually use them.
You may be surprised – that gorgeous benchtop you spotted online may not end up being practical in your family home; or you may end up hating your ‘ideal’ layout after giving it a walkthrough.
While you may have already pinned twenty different kitchens online, walking through a kitchen showroom gives you the unique opportunity to witness different elements and how they work together first-hand.
Showrooms may have features on display that you never even knew existed, let alone thought to search for. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with options for your kitchen, having concrete examples in front of you may help narrow down what it is you’re looking for in a more practical way.
