Kitchen Renovations Sydney: Benefits of Renovating a Kitchen
Does your kitchen look small? A kitchen renovation can increase the space and make your kitchen appear bigger.

The team at Wonderful Kitchens can arrange the installation of new space-saving appliances or add more cabinetry for increased storage space. We can create a streamlined design that maximises bench space and improves functionality.

This means that the costs associated with the kitchen renovation will be offset by reduced energy bills.
Improved Style and Appearance
One of the most cited reasons for renovating a kitchen in Sydney is to increase the appearance and styling of a home. As already mentioned, families spend a lot of time in the kitchen and making this space look as beautiful as possible makes a lot of sense. New appliances, countertops, cabinets, hardware and flooring can dramatically improve the look and feel of a kitchen and make the space more attractive and appealing. The team at Wonderful Kitchens can work closely with you to design a kitchen that compliments the aesthetic of your home – a welcoming space for you to enjoy with family and friends.

At Wonderful Kitchens, we will design and install a kitchen that will add aesthetic value to your home – placing your property in a leading position within the Sydney market.

Below are a few of the most popular additions and improvements that Wonderful Kitchens Sydney can implement in your home.
Apart from a basic stove and oven, adding appliances encourages you to prepare foods in different ways. This can make your kitchen a fun place where your culinary creativity can be explored. When you are planning a kitchen renovation, think beyond just a basic stove and oven. Would you like to add a wok burner or a grill, allowing you to add new cuisines to your cooking repertoire? How about a double-oven or a steam oven for healthy cooking? Would you like a gas or induction stove top? Consider whether you would like a fully-integrated dishwasher built into your kitchen cupboards, or whether you would like a built-in microwave . It is worth taking the time to explore all the options available as you consider your kitchen design. Consider how you might like to explore your cooking skills and develop them further. Importantly, think about the lifestyle you would like to create for yourself and your family.
Most kitchens benefit from considering the layout during a renovation. It is as vital for domestic kitchens as it is for large commercial kitchens. Think about how you move around the kitchen as you shift between preparing food and beverages, cooking, and cleaning. How does the space work when there are multiple people in the kitchen? Do you have a big family using your kitchen? Consider possible obstructions; for instance, is it not possible to open particular drawers and cupboards when the dishwasher door is open? Is it difficult to access cupboards if someone is cooking at the stove? Wonderful Kitchens designs ways to maximize the effectiveness and functionality of your kitchen through zoning.

Adding fixtures such as flat-paneled cabinets gives a streamlined, uncluttered appearance to a kitchen. Internal storage systems can keep your pots and pans, and crockery organised and easy to access. New taps, ceramic and stainless steel sinks, and splashbacks can immediately enhance the appeal of a kitchen, as can new lighting – brightening up the space and giving it a spacious appearance.

Changing your bench tops goes a long way in helping you achieve a wonderful kitchen renovation. Apart from adding value, beauty, and space, changing the countertops is a good way of increasing food safety. For instance, if the benchtops are replaced with stainless steel, your food is less likely to be contaminated because the material is highly resistant to bacteria.
There are many kitchen bench top options available so it is important that you choose a material that complements the décor and style of your home. It is also worth considering your lifestyle. For instance, it is better to opt for a durable, scratch and heat resistant material (e.g. granite, quartz) if you cook frequently.

Apart from these approaches, the look of a kitchen can be improved with the addition of new high-quality utensils, small appliances (e.g kettles, toasters), decorative items or additional lighting.
