How will this Toolkit help you?
The kitchen is often called the ‘hub’ of the home. Unfortunately, it’s also the most expensive to build. Why? Because it uses almost every building trade imaginable for just one room. You will need plumbing, electrics, cabinets, plaster, tiles, glass, stone, flooring…so if you’re going to do it, know what you are in for before you start, understand who will be responsible for what and most importantly, do it well!
You may already have thought about the design of your kitchen, with some ideas about the look and feel you are trying to achieve. you may even have an inkling about the brand and style of appliances you would love to incorporate. But what about the real challenges: Where should you start? What do you need to do first? Who does what? How do you actually renovate a kitchen?
Designed as your go-to guides, our Toolkits will provide you with the knowledge and confidence to ask the right questions, to the right person at the right time in the build cycle. No need for lengthy courses, reading a stack of books or googling for hours, we have done the hard work for you.
