TOP 10 Kitchen Fixes to Give Your Property the Edge

You may be renovating to sell, renovating to rent out or renovating to improve your own home.  Whilst the end purpose of the completed project may vary, and the corresponding budget and schedule may vary, the intention will be the same : you will be renovating for the greatest possible return.


In striving for the greatest possible return, the goal is always the same :

 maximize on result --> minimize on dollars spent

Maximise on Result : this is the sale price if selling, the weekly rental if leasing out, and functionality, lifestyle enhancement and enjoyment if the kitchen is in your own home.

Minimise on Dollars Spent : this is the minimum dollars you can spend to get a kitchen that does what it needs to do and also survive the environment is serves.

The first goal – Maximise on Result – is easy if you visit the right kitchen shop for your kitchen.  A kitchen shop who immerses themselves in the latest European styles and trends and incorporates clever innovations in to their design, such as soft-close drawers as standard in all kitchens.  A kitchen shop who delivers your completed kitchen in half the industry standard time, and delivers such a high quality product that they give kitchen components a 10 year warranty and hinges and drawer runners a lifetime warranty.  And a kitchen shop that has a range of price options to suit all budgets and can suggest to customers how they might make savings but still get a suitable result.  A kitchen shop like RenoSave Partner, Kitchen Connection.
