Sometimes it’s unnecessary to completely rip out an old kitchen, often the carcases and base units are in perfect order, in that case new door fronts, handles and worktop can transform a old drab kitchen to a fresh looking space where you actually want to hang out and cook in, all for a lot less of the price.
However, often it is easier and quicker to start a fresh and take it back to the bare bones. This way you can decide exactly the design and layout you want, future proofing all elements of your space. Changing flooring, wall finishes, moving electrics and plumbing. You can really put your stamp on your Kitchen space, adding those design features like islands, breakfast bars or that Aga you’ve always wanted.
