It is easier than ever to give the most used room in the house a facelift, our tips have been created to modernise your kitchen on a budget. All of these are simple changes, but all have the ability to completely transform the house.

Architectural rooflights

Many kitchens have been built into extensions and have space for a skylight to be installed. They allow large amounts of natural light to flood into your kitchen, which can ultimately help with modernisation. Find out more.

We recommend using modular rooflights for your property, as they have endless possibilities to combine a limitless amount of fixed or opening rooflights together. They are designed with energy efficiency and high levels of security to ensure you are in safe hands.

It is essential to cover your flat roof extension with weather resistant rubber roofing to keep it watertight. Installation is easy.

Use this handy EPDM Kit Calculator to work out the materials you will need as well as all the necessary tapes and adhesives to help you install your rooflight onto your new flat roof.

A lick of paint to save your kitchen

Paint is a life saviour – it is easy to update your kitchen by painting over old and discoloured cabinets and giving them a new lease of life. Paint manufactures are always releasing new colours of paint to keep up with the latest trends, so when choosing a colour, pick one of the most recent ones. This will help to keep it as modernised as possible. Select a suitable colour.

Matching appliances

Having electrical appliances that matches your colour scheme in the kitchen really do improve the overall aesthetic appeal of the room. It is vital that you do your research before purchasing any as you must consider value for money, average lifespan and faults.

Over time, appliances can break due to wear and tear. This doesn’t mean you have to throw them out and buy brand new expensive ones. You could easily contact an electrician in your local area and ask them about appliance repairs. Speedy Electrical in Brisbane offers this service.

This means you don’t have to spend a large sum of money replacing the broken one and you get to continue using the appliance that you love so much. Call 0407 257 239 today.
