Thanks for joining us and a big welcome to Workshop @skatta. We trust that you'll receive loads of great information, advice and inspiration for your projects from our ever-helpful and creative community members.
Looks like you've got a classic 70s kitchen there! Fortunately, there will be plenty of Workshop members keen to give you a hand.
Can I ask approximately what your budget might be? That will help community members provide more useful advice. And are you wanting to complete just a cosmetic update or do you have the funds to make more structural changes?
Let me also alert you to other posts you might find useful:
It's a bathroom post but do check out this discussion from earlier in the week which highlights that paint can do wonders - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Bathroom-and-Laundry/Bathroom-reno/td-p/21664
If you're lucky you might also get some tips from reno expert @2Belindas for painting your tiles and benchtops.
These might also help:
Looks like a great project @skatta! Without knowing your budget I'm going to assume you mean keeping it on the lower side.
So you could go as simple as laminate paint over the existing cabinetry, timber/laminate benchtops, new sink/tapware, new gas cooktop, tiled splashback and paint over the exposed brick or plaster it depending how modern you want to go. Squaring off those arches will also modernise the room. You could do all of this for a few grand at most.
Taking it a bit further you've got the obvious upgrade options of stone/marble benchtops and splashback, induction cooktop and even serving windows.
I think it's definitely worth adding some overhead shelving/cabinetry on the wall where the quote currently is.
Where do you live out of interest?
I'm not sure you can buy the product here....you'd probably find it online somewhere. I think I'd struggle to get the marble to look like marble, so that it looks authentic at first glance. It looks a little tricky to me. I'd love to know if anyone has had success with this product.
I know that our students have had great results with the Rustoleum and even our beginners said that it was not difficult to use.
Thank you ProjectPete. i Live in Perth, WA.
What a coincidence! Me too I'm actually doing a kitchen (and bathroom and laundry) reno in an old house in Beldon at the moment - coming up a treat Doing it on a budget as it's just to prep it to sell.
This is how it began
