Having a new kitchen is on many of our wish lists.
Whether your current one simply looks tired and old fashioned, or whether it’s a kitchen that you’ve ‘inherited’ when you moved home and it simply isn’t to your taste, there’s never been a better time to invest in that new kitchen you’ve been dreaming of!
A new kitchen could add value to your property
In fact, whilst we might convince ourselves that the cost of having a new kitchen is not a viable expense, especially during the current economic uncertainty, a recent article has reported that investing in a new kitchen could actually increase the value of your property.
Improve, not move!
Rather than move home, it turns out that many of us are choosing to improve our homes, and this trend is on the increase. During the last five years, more than 4 million UK households have chosen to update their properties, and whilst some have chosen to simply give their home an update, others have opted to undertake renovations.
Surprisingly, an average kitchen renovation can add over £12,500 to the value of a property, and as you would expect, in the London area this figure is significantly higher!
At Ray Munn Kitchens, we are certainly seeing an increase in the number of people looking to change the layout of their homes or extend their kitchen footprint, to meet their ever changing needs and evolving lifestyle.
A bespoke kitchen design…
Taking the time to ascertain a clients needs is just a small part of the service we offer. We like to gain a better understanding of the way our customers currently use their kitchen, their anticipated needs in five years time and their likes and dislikes of the current space.
Is the kitchen purely an area for preparing and cooking food?
Is it used to entertain in?
Does the home have a separate dining room or should an eating area be incorporated into the overall design?
Will there be children or grandchildren at some point in the future?
Is this home likely to be a ‘forever’ home or a short term house?
These are just a few of the many questions we will pose to you during our complimentary design consultation, to enable us to better plan your new dream kitchen.
