Cosmetic kitchen reno

We've been working on our kitchen over the last 6+ months. We managed to get the following done

Painting the cabinets,

Adding more cabinetry,

New appliances,

New benchtop

Painted the tile splashback

Added some trim to the cabinets (repainted)

So it's somewhat now 'complete'

It's truly made cooking such a delight and the space feels much bigger and brighter 

 

Cheers all.

Re: Cosmetic Kitchen Reno

What an exceptional project @Chaks_DIY! I love the benchtops you've gone with, and the gold handles add some delightful pizzazz. Those cabinets have come up spectacularly well; the trim also looks fantastic.

 

Many thanks for sharing and showing our community members some great ways to refresh their own kitchens. Well done.

Re: Cosmetic Kitchen Reno

Hi @TrickyBarter 

Thank you for the kind feedback. We used the white knight tile and laminate range which worked fantastically. I'd personally recommend it! 

If you have any questions I'm happy to help. 

 

All the best and much like @MitchellMc.  would love to follow your journey too.

 

Cheers

Re: Cosmetic kitchen reno

This looks absolutely amazing! Love what you’ve done to the space @Chaks_DIY . So much brighter. What did you use for the trim on the cabinets? I cut strips of mdf for my bathroom vanity update but I didn’t find it the neatest.

@diyfun 
Thanks for that ! I used strips of hardwood moulding for mine. Easy to cut and paint too as I'm sure you found too.

Here is a photo of when we finished painting the cabinets and the seemed a bit flat.
