Is cooking a depressing experience because you are surrounded by old brown laminated cupboards and bench tops and it reminds you of a bad seventies movie, then the answer may be to get a complete kitchen makeovers. It will take about a week to complete and in the meantime the kids will love you for all the takeaway you will be providing and you can gloat over the transformation that is taking place little by little every day as you eat.
The cupboards and pantry will be sprayed with 2 Pac and a stone look bench top will replace the old one, choose lighter colours this will open up a small dingy space and make it seem bigger and fresher and will definitely lighten your mood as you are slaving over the stove and chopping away at vegetables. Even the splash back behind the sink and stove can be given a bit of an upgrade so the whole space looks brand new and not just some areas, leaving the kitchen with an unfinished feel which can be unsettling to work in.

A kitchen is the heart of a home or so it is said, this may be true but it sometimes feel like a prison when the area you are working in is dark, old and slightly tomb like, the last thing you feel like doing is spending any significant amount of time in there and as a result your meals are rushed affairs with no real thought behind them but what can be made fast and easy.
Doing a complete overhaul of the space new cupboards, pantry, sink and bench tops can mean thousands and thousands of dollars and then going shopping for all the bits and pieces and having to schedule time with a busy husband so he can have a look at what you have chosen and then he doesn’t like it so you have to choose again and go through the whole process over and over until everyone is happy. Meanwhile you could have gotten contractors in and the whole thing over in a matter of days, I know which one I would be going with and it is nowhere near as expensive as going the brand new route.
Some people are however bothered by the fact that all those old cupboards are still under all the paint and finishes and no matter how new it looks they still are not happy with the outcome, then getting the resurfaced kitchen is pointless because in the end you are going to go buy all new stuff anyway and might as well have saved some time and money by going that route to start with. To be certain this is what you want to do go to the websites and have a look at the before and after shots of the work they have already done. You will be surprised how good they look and so completely different.
