The kitchen has always been the heart of the home, but now thanks to reality cooking shows, building shows and the like, a huge spotlight has been shone on the family kitchen. Cooking is back in fashion thanks to the likes of “my kitchen rules”. In response to this new age, kitchen makers are now in hot demand. Kitchen renovations have also increased because the cost of housing has increased so home owners are deciding rather than sell and buy again, to renovate. To quote the NZ Herald “Home renovating has become a $1.5 billion boom industry as a growing number of house owners turn their backs on trading up in a rampant property market” the article also goes on to state, “It is proving to be big business. The Certified Builders Association has reported a leap in renovation work, particularly in the past 18 months”
TV3 printed a great article in relation to “the block” TV show that is one of the most popular shows at the moment, in part it says “Beautifying and modernising your kitchen with brand new appliances is really exciting! But before you get carried away with inspiring ideas and photos, make sure you follow these kitchen must-dos, recommended by The Block NZ.
