How to budget for your new kitchen

A detailed budget is an essential first step in discovering what is possible with your kitchen, from the materials you choose to the professional help you hire. Creating a budget and then sticking to it is essential to avoid being surprised by the expense when all is said and done!


Plan your kitchen zone

Contemporary families not only use the kitchen for cooking only but also for working, coffee and tea, sociability, and unwinding after a long day. You need it to function perfectly with a designed layout. While the kitchen triangle theory is still a good basic method, the 5-Zones layout caters to more modern needs, multifunctional space, and connecting spaces.
