Hi everyone. Second Q on my kitchen...I would like to change the countertops & bench in my kitchen - firstly I don't know what material they currently are...I think they look acrylic? Should I paint these DIY using Dulux, or (my preference) would be to replace these but I have no idea at what cost, or who could do it? Any tips to improve this?
They just look like a laminate product @firsttimereno - decent long-lasting stuff for the price.
While you can get away with repainting cabinetry, I'd steer away from the idea for benchtops as they will scratch and wear over (a relatively short amount of) time. It'd be best to replace these. You could go with a new laminate option, or maybe even a nice bamboo. It'll come down to budget and a good way to get an idea of pricing is to get a quote from Bunnings for a Kaboodle fitout then do a bit of a shop around. Replacing/installing isn't too difficult - it really depend son which option you go for.
I will also embed a video below from the Bunnings team which features the Dulux Renovation range. Hope you find it useful.
