Kitchen cupboards are amazing if you stay in Midrand. A house with a nice kitchen sells allot easier than a house with a ugly kitchen. If you have a big fridge you can pack more stuff in it. I find having allot of cupboard space helps a cook to optimize the kitchen properly. Always make sure you wash the dishes before you go to sleep so there are no flies in the morning. Another good tip if using plastic PVC kick plates under the cabinets so when you mop the floor tiles the chipboard doesn’t rot.
A good kitchen installer can fit a assemble and install a kitchen in 3 days. Make sure he has at least 5 years experience and 10 references. He also has to have someone helping him fit the door handles, clean the cupboards and hold the wall units. Always sell the benefits of a kitchen like a spice rack, pot drawer, soft close Blum hinges, Franke sinks, Smeg ovens and so on.
Make sure your kitchen also has decent lighting. If you fit a large window above the sink it will will bring allot of light in. Down lighters are also recommended for big area space and are usually installed in bulkheads to create an ambience.
