Of all the areas in your home, your kitchen is one of the most used. From drinking your morning coffee to finishing off your dinner with something sweet, your kitchen is used on a daily basis. With that being said, it’s important to match your kitchen to your lifestyle. This can include aesthetics, storage and other important factors, such as seating.
Through the years, you may have thought about updating your kitchen, but haven’t fully committed due to costs. When it comes to updating such a large and important space, little upgrades here and there can have a big impact. Take a look at these two kitchen renovation projects for under $12,000 in Whitby and Ajax.
New Kitchen Island for $4,500 in Ajax
Kelly and their family were looking to install a kitchen island. They knew what they wanted and after browsing their showroom and the samples provided, they contacted Canlik Kitchens for the job. Kelly was looking to add countertop space, storage, and seating to their existing kitchen. And of course, a kitchen island does all that without rearranging any of the existing kitchen features — keeping this upgrade low budget.
Swapping out their old kitchen island, which was a basic table with no additional storage, will now allow them to seat more people comfortably, as well as have more storage and countertop space. The decision to choose a kitchen island with a waterfall countertop provides a modern feel to the existing space, and allows the countertop to become somewhat of a centrepiece.
With a new waterfall kitchen countertop, Kelly has added value to her kitchen through added seating, storage, and countertop space. If you’re interested in adding value to or upgrading your current kitchen, get connected with a pro today.
Kitchen Cabinet Refacing for $12,000 in Whitby
Mark and their family were looking to update their kitchen. Their existing cabinets were dated, however, they did not want to gut the entire space, as it was still functional. After speaking with Canlik Kitchens, they came to the conclusion that the best idea would be to reface the kitchen cabinets.
As the existing cabinets were not painted and left their natural colour, it made the space appear dated. Even though the appliances and countertops had been recently updated, they needed to do more. After consulting with Canlik Kitchens, they decided to reface the cabinets, ultimately choosing a washed white colour.
As you can see from the after photos, the kitchen looks completely new and modern. Refacing your kitchen cabinets is a great way to upgrade your kitchen without having to gut the space. Cabinets tend to have a longer shelf life (pun intended), and don’t necessarily need to be replaced and instead can be updated with a simple coat of paint.
