Things to Consider When Thinking About Renovating Your Kitchen

Budget: You must establish a budget for your project. Here at Icandy, we offer obligation-free quotes to give you the best figure to work with for your desired kitchen. Your budget will reflect a range of things and can vary widely depending on materials, appliances and finishes.

Appliances: Are you keeping old appliances, or considering new ones? A new oven/stovetop? A wall-mounted microwave? Gas or electric cooktops? All these extras must be taken into account when budgeting for your kitchen.

Style: What is your desired style? Scandanavian? Ergonomic? Provincial? Our team are on top of market trends to help you choose a kitchen that is not only built to last, but that will age well.

Needs: What needs do you have? These are your non-negotiables, and will form the foundation of your budget. Flooring, painting, cupboards and benchtops, for example.
