The award-winning Hettich Endorsed Showroom C & L Joinery recommends a few tips to get homeowners on the right track in kitchen renovation projects.

Renovating a kitchen, especially for the first time can be challenging for any homeowner. Based on their 25+ years of experience in the business, C & L Joinery advises home renovators to plan ahead and gather all the information needed before getting started on the job.

Owner of the Teralba-based kitchen specialists, Jan Cook asks homeowners to first talk to experts. The biggest mistake would be to buy beautiful appliances first without even considering whether they would fit into their existing kitchen spaces.

Discussing requirements first with experts such as C & L Joinery would help homeowners understand their kitchen design specifications so that they can invest in suitable kitchen appliances.

C & L Joinery offers a list of tips for kitchen renovators to help create a gorgeous kitchen:

  • Consider the size of the room
  • Consider the amount of light entering the room as this may influence choice of colour
  • Choice of appliances (e.g., wall oven Vs. under bench oven) may alter the design concept
  • Consider the view from the kitchen and how important it is to highlight what’s around the space
While the market got off to a slow start this year, Jan and the team are looking forward to the warmer weather bringing about more kitchen renovations.

Last year C & L won the Master Builders Association Kitchen of the Year Award with a French provincial fit-out of a private kitchen in the Hunter Valley.

C & L Joinery took charge of the project from start to finish, creating the new kitchen in their showroom, and installing it in the home with final touches. Jan says winning the award has led to an increase in the number of requests for French provincial style kitchens.
