If you’ve ever thought about selling your home, this post is definitely for you.

 

Most Sydney Real Estate experts agree that when selling a home, the kitchen is usually the first room buyers want to check out.  Quality stone benchtops and up-to-date finishes are most sought after by buyers.  So before you put your home on the market, have a good look at your kitchen.  Is it stuck in a time capsule?  Then it’s time to consider a smart kitchen renovation.

The big question is, how much should you renovate?

According to Cherie Barber – Australia’s Renovation Queen and massive Granite Transformations fan, sticking to your renovating budget is easily achieved with our unique and innovative approach to kitchen renovations.

 

As a kitchen renovation company, we build quality brand new kitchens from scratch.  But what makes us stand out, is our ability to do kitchen makeovers.  What does this mean?

1. Benchtop resurfacing

2. Kitchen door replacment

 

This clever approach to renovating has so many benefits, especially when it comes to real estate.  It cuts out the demolition process saving you time and unnecessary construction waste.

We loved this kitchen renovation on Space Invaders which was super easy to transform. 

 

We resurfaced the benchtop using Sea Salt Stone from our Classic Stone Range. 

 

The splashback tiles were replaced, the doors upgraded and the homeowners were thrilled with their transformed kitchen!

So what’s the first thing buyers want to see in the kitchen?

Quality Stone Benchtops

Benchtop Resurfacing

The kitchen benchtop is the make or break feature.  Cut corners on your benchtop and you could find it difficult to move your home once it’s on the market.  It’s a no-brainer that a quality stone benchtop is the top choice that will get your home noticed by discerning buyers.

 

Engineered stone benchtops in particular are known to be lower maintenance and hard-wearing, without losing their aesthetic appeal. Granite Transformations are the pioneers of benchtop resurfacing world-wide, with over 25 years in the business. Our superior engineered stone is finished to an optimal thickness of just 7mm so that your new benchtops can be handcrafted for an exact fit and bonded to your existing benchtop.

ENGADINE KITCHEN RENOVATION

Benchtop Resurfaced

Check out this local Sydney home in Engadine that recently sold for a great profit.  We simply resurfaced the existing laminate benchtop with our engineered stone.  The crisp white stone benchtop now brightens up the whole space.  Even the splashback tiles look brighter.

Note that the homeowners were only able to keep their splashback tiles because we didn’t remove the benchtop. A traditional stone benchtop replacement would damage the tiles and add to the cost of your renovation.  Our benchtop overlay method of going straight over existing surfaces saves time and mess – the perfect solution for a sale reno like this one.

Door Replacement

Another important aspect to consider for your renovation are the kitchen doors.  Have they seen better days?  We can completely replace all doors, panels and drawer fronts with brand new ones to update your kitchen for sale.

 

Our kitchen door replacement service includes quality new door handles and hinges.  We have a wide range of door finishes to choose from to suit all styles and budgets.

Doors Replaced

These homeowners in Jannali, Heathcote, Woronora and Ramsgate could see their kitchen had good bones. The internal kitchen cabinets were still in great condition but the doors were outdated.  Rather than unnecessarily wasting time and money on a brand new kitchen, they opted for a complete kitchen makeover instead by:

1. Resurfacing the Benchtop

2. Replacing the Kitchen Doors.
