Grange, Brisbane, QLD Kitchen Renovation

The kitchen was always seen as a back room where dishes were washed, meals prepared and food kept. Now, homeowners are shifting their priorities when it comes to the kitchen. Looking to modern kitchen designs, Brisbane property holders are investing in modern trends for both form and function. Kitchen appliances, storage spaces, floor lay-out and over-all style are being considered.

The kitchen has cemented itself as the centre, the heart of the home. A place where families and friends get together – a social area for homeowners and guests. Because of this, the kitchen has a far bigger purpose and a bigger focus.

Achieving a modern family kitchen in 2018 and beyond means considering the latest trends in storage, space and technology. There are technological advances in accordance with environmental requirements. The change in social dynamics have also contributed to the lay-out, space and arrangement of modern kitchens. From lighting to storage spaces, here are a few trends to consider when wanting to update to a modern kitchen design:

  • A Smart Kitchen

Technology has come a long way and the kitchen has absorbed its advantages. It is present in appliances and it can also be integrated into the whole kitchen. What used to be seen in movies, as a gateway to a futuristic home, are now present in modern-day homes. From responsive lights to refrigerators, pre-programmed ovens and safe cooktops, the next few years will welcome the smart kitchen.

2018 Modern Kitchen Design Ideas To Consider Black White Kitchen

While most smart selections are expensive – such as voice activated features – there are more affordable options available. Consider cook tops that have safety sensors that turn off when it detects spillage, over-heating, long absence or even accidental starts, and induction stove cooktops that don’t burn your hand. These are some of the technological highlights available today. Which is why Craftbuilt Kitchens partners with Kleenmaid when it comes to kitchen appliances because of its elegant, efficient, environmentally-friendly and efficient products. A technology integrated modern kitchen is definitely a huge kitchen trend in 2018.

  • Storage Is Everything

According to a survey from Houzz, clutter has been a top reason for home-owners looking to renovate their kitchens. When planning your modern family kitchen with Craftbuilt Kitchens, we offer you alternatives such as a pull-out shelves or cutlery and utensil systems, cabinets with clever storage solutions  by Hafele for fuss free organisation.

To create a clean and modern look, our clients are choosing to hide their appliances within the storage lay-out and upgrade cabinets to hold specific items – from dinnerware  to multi purpose waste bins. What’s left is a clean modern kitchen design that guests and family can enjoy – without the clutter! A sneaky design but one that many homeowners love.

  • Contemporary and Modern: Popular Kitchen Choices

We are living “in the now.” Over 50% of homeowners are looking to contemporary and modern kitchen designs for their renovations.

A contemporary kitchen features high functionality designs for a modern kitchen but also incorporate traditional ideas to give the space a livable , welcome  feel. This kind of design feature pieces that have softened and rounded lines. Modern kitchens feature stark and bolder lines with engineered quartz as a leading surface material for a lot of homeowners.

  • White Is Still a Favourite Colour

White is the leading choice for walls, cabinetry and benchtops. About 60% choose white as a wall colour and gray is seen as a second choice. Both colours exude elegance and a clean feel. This is a particularly common selection for clients who dislike seeing clutter, which is why clients love it .  

Gray continues to trend because of its versatility. It complements dark colours such as black as well as many more. Aside from Grey and White, homeowners are looking at uplifting colors, interesting geometrics, bohemian look and bespoke touches for that added glam and charm.

Timber Look Kitchen

  • Hardwood Still Beloved

Ceramic kitchen tiles have always been a choice for many but renovating homeowners are updating their modern kitchen designs with hardwood. Whether stained or unstained, hardwood flooring tops the list. For property owners who still want the hardwood look but want something that is easier to maintain, many consider ceramic flooring in their modern family kitchen.

Uplifting Colour Scheme Ideas for Your Kitchen: Miami Brights!

There is an emergence of uplifting colors that will fit the personality of any homeowner. Use of such colours impact the mood of your kitchen. This year’s uplifting colour scheme sees the emergence of Miami Brights, according to a recent Houzz webinar we attended. Visualise pastel plush, spring colour to cool warm, blue water crystal clear palettes. Such colours are evocative of the Miami Beach – as the name suggests.

Use uplifting colours to indicate the mood you want to feature in your kitchen. Here’s a quick color guide to decide on.

  1. Red is associated with power, confidence and high energy. It is often the hue our eyes are drawn to when entering a space. It is also known to stimulate appetite! A good colour scheme idea to have in the kitchen. Choose among different shades of red to uplift your kitchen theme, from raspberry sorbet to pink mist.
  2. Orange is a fabulous hue. It is associated with happiness and joy. It is a great colour to use for social interactions. How about autumn blaze? Or go lighter with sunbaked orange?
  3. Go bright with cheerful yellow! Yellow is said to promote creativity and optimism. A good mood lifter for any living space. Go for soft yellows this year with light lemon or lemon chiffon shades.
  4. Go green. Not only it is a calming colour, it also invokes nature. Green is a great accent to any living space and one way to do this is by adding indoor herb gardens or small houseplants. This is a refreshing kitchen colour scheme idea.Timber Look Kitchen
  5. Keep calm with blue. When going with Miami Bright colours, blue emits that coast to coast vibe. It is a popular colour that invokes a warm and relaxing environment. Choose shades from the sky or the sea, from sky blue to aqua palettes.

When you’re ready with your personal colour scheme idea or if you need help in picking the right shade for your kitchen renovation, Our professional designers at 2958 Logan Road, Underwood, QLD 4119 are happy to help you. You can also call us at (07) 3341 9166 to schedule your 3D appointment.

At first, you may have lingering questions about how your dream kitchen can be possible if you have a tiny space. When you visit the Craftbuilt Kitchens showroom, our designers will help you maximize your kitchen’s full potential. You can get the best value out of your kitchen renovation! You may be seeing a tiny, cramped kitchen now. Wait until our designers offer suggestions that can increase the value of your kitchen. Here are three out of the many advices we offer:

Removing A Wall Creates Open Space

You may be thinking how your dream kitchen will materialize in such a cramped space. Your kitchen renovation is the perfect opportunity to increase the scale of your kitchen. Right now you may be seeing a tiny, cramped kitchen with limited moving space. How can the whole family fit in that small area? Imagine how your whole kitchen (and home) will look if you take out a wall. Your kitchen will have a more open space that will link your dining area to your kitchen, and even to your living area. Our designers offer expert advice on that aspect as it involves the foundation and structure of your home.


An Island Bench Increases Socializing Time And Storage Space

What next? Removing one wall can open up the opportunity to install an island bench. This may be something you’ve never envisioned before. Considering an island bench for your kitchen can open up a culture of socializing. It gives that feeling of intimacy you get when family and guests come over, without getting in the way during meal preparations. An island bench is also an ideal storage space.



Lighting Makes A Difference

Lastly, picking out the right type of lighting will add value to your kitchen’s over-all effect. Sure, the single fluorescent tube in the middle of your ceiling is serving its purpose. However, choosing the right accent lights and modern downlighting can display your kitchen’s best features and makes the kitchen appear larger than it seems. Even using natural light from windows can make a huge difference and it saves you quite a bit from the electric bill. Our designers not only aim for comfort and usability but also style.


These are just a few ideas that will take your kitchen renovation to the next level. Our Craftbuilt Kitchens designers can help you maximize your kitchen without breaking the bank. Considering even just one suggestion mentioned above will not only add value to your kitchen but of your entire home.

Planning to sell your house? If you are putting your home on the market in the near future, you may be compiling a list of things you can do to increase profit or sell quicker. There are many things you can do to increase the value and aesthetic appeal of your home; the kitchen is a great place to start.

Hub of The Home

The kitchen is the hub of the home and one of the areas we most like to see organised and in good condition. That is why prospective buyers often take in how a certain area in the home, such as the kitchen, looks first.

There is something very appealing about a new, modern and fresh kitchen that enables buyers to imagine they could be enjoying this very kitchen. So much time is spent in our kitchens without realising it sometimes.

Many buyers have walked away from a home they did like just because of the kitchen. Not every buyer wants a home that needs renovations or extra money to spend. Quite simply, it is not worth the risk to lose a sale because of your old and outdated kitchen.

Why A New Kitchen?

Modern and tidy kitchens are a big draw card, at Craftbuilt Kitchens we highly recommend you add this to your list of ways to increase the speed of selling your home.

Whether for investing or for personal use, a buyer will look at the kitchen and ascertain whether or not it will be a functional and pleasant one to use.

Functional and practical kitchens are the order of the day. Investors find it easier to rent homes that have newer kitchens and, naturally, owner residents would want a new modern kitchen in their new home.

Kitchen Renovation- Things to Consider

Our specialist showroom and design team will be able to offer some fantastic advice on choosing the kitchen to go into your home. The selection process will, of course, be different somewhat because you are not choosing the kitchen for yourself.

This means that the theme and colour scheme should not necessarily be the choice you would have in your own home.

When choosing a style and colour theme of the kitchen it’s a good idea to stick within the theme of the home. This could be colonial style, modern or bold. If the overall style of the home does not follow a theme as such then it’s always a good idea to go with more neutral colours.

This way, the potential buyers are not put off by colours that they don’t like or that they are not fond of in the kitchen.

Our team at Craftbuilt Kitchens will also discuss the kind of appliances you should consider, as well as great ideas for extra storage. If there is one thing that can improve a fabulous looking kitchen it’s decent storage.

Contact Craftbuilt Kitchens today to start the journey of selling your home quicker.

Whether you choose to believe it or not, the colours we choose to have in our homes can affect our moods. You may not have realised, but sometimes the colour on the walls of the rooms you are in can affect how you feel.

For this reason it is important to choose the kitchen colour schemes for your home carefully, including the kitchen. The kitchen is one of the rooms in your home you will spend a decent amount of time in. Which is why it will be important that you feel good when you’re in the area.

Naturally, getting your kitchen made by the kitchen design experts at Craftbuilt Kitchens will ensure that it feels like a wonderful room to be in. You can also think carefully about the colours you choose, how these will make you feel and how they fit in with the rest of your home.

Is Your Kitchen Small?

If you are working with a small kitchen area then you will need to make some wise decisions that will help make the area feel more open. The way you use your storage space, for example, is important but the colours you choose will also have an effect.

Choosing dark colours will make the area appear even smaller than it is, whereas light colours will give the impression that the kitchen area is bigger, more open and airy.

Bold Colours

If you do want bold colours in your kitchen it’s a good idea to remember that you may want to eventually change these. For this reason it’s recommended that the bold colours are done on something that is more affordable to change such as paint on a feature wall.

Having the more costly items such as bench tops in neutral colours means these will not clash with a bold colour but then in the event you become tired of the bold feature wall or accents in the kitchen then changing the paint won’t cost as much as changing the bench top or cupboard doors.

Colour Tips

A splash of yellow is a great way to make a kitchen feel more sunny and welcoming. A pale yellow in a small kitchen area can also help give a brighter more open effect.

Red is very stylish in kitchens and can be an appetite stimulant. For a rich and warm effect add small amounts of red; too much will be overbearing.

Green adds a nice fresh and airy feel; again, don’t go over the top.


Simple and Clean

A single kitchen colour schemes has a lot going for it. It gives your kitchen a clean and simple look and if you are not very interior design savvy you don’t have to worry about choosing colours that clash. This style is also suited to those who don’t like their kitchens to look very bold and prefer a subdued look. If you wish to create a slight ‘accent’ you could use the same colour in some areas in a different shade. Using neutral colours such as grey, tan and cream you can create a very classy look to your kitchen.

The Edge

If you are looking for something a little more modern and edgy then you can look at mixing a couple of colours together. This style really adds a lot of life to your kitchen however use caution with bright colours as this can be a little overwhelming on the visual senses and may even be stressful to the occupant. Always go for the options that are less visually confronting. If you are a really creative type then you may want to add lots of bold colours to your kitchen, especially if that goes with the theme of the rest of your home.

Things to Remember

When visiting kitchen showrooms to choose your kitchen colour schemes there are a few things to remember. For a feeling of great space use neutral, cool and light colours. Using whites and creams will also give a feeling of cleanliness. Unless you have a fairly large kitchen it’s best to steer away from dark colours as these can make a room seem smaller. Consider the lighting you will use and also the natural light that comes into your kitchen. Each of these will affect how the colours are seen. Natural light gives an accurate rendition however artificial lighting can give an inaccurate one.

Your kitchen designer can discuss with you the fantastic colours available and what might suit your home. The possibilities are endless and the choice is yours.

When Choosing Your Kitchen Colour Schemes

Perhaps you have lived in your present home for many years, moving in as a newly married couple, having children, getting them through years of education then into the workforce, and finally seeing them move out to start lives of their own. You have reached a stage in life where you now have some ready cash to use in doing some renovating that you have put off until you have had the time and opportunity to do it. Fresh paint with perhaps a new kitchen colour schemes, new drapes and lounge to go with it, and a lovely new dream kitchen designed to your own specifications.

Before you choose your wall colours it is an idea to get an idea of what it looks like with a virtual home computer software program. This allows you to put in your floor plan and then put colours into the plan for walls and ceilings and door/window surrounds. Once you are satisfied with colours for the walls of the home you can see how well your chosen kitchen colours co-ordinate with them. When you are completely happy with your choices contact a firm that is in the business of making kitchens in Brisbane and discuss your ideas with them.

Your kitchen will be measured up to ensure your kitchen design in Brisbane will be a perfect fit before it is made and installed, with your chosen colour choices included. Of course, if you don’t intend to stay on in the home for long after you do all these upgrades, and are thinking of putting it on the market for sale, you might have to rethink your choice of colours. You may absolutely love it, but someone who looks at it as a potential buyer may have completely different preferences. If you have bold colours that dazzle and the potential buyer is a person who favours soft pastels they may walk away.

When you are intending to sell up a home, in order to maximise your chances of a quick sale, always keep colours to soft neutral tones. Neutral backgrounds allow for contrasting colours that are soft pastels or bold bright colours, giving prospective buyers an opportunity to stamp their own personality on the home with their personal colour choices. Although there seems to be a trend to splash bold colour around in the home lately, not everyone is in favour of it. If colour is kept to neutral tones it will attract all comers as they can easily make their own colour contrasts.

Cooking, these days, is not the same as when we were younger, with the meat and three-vegetable dinners each night. This is largely due to the cuisines that have been introduced into our country, and the modern willingness to experiment with new foods. Numerous cooking shows on television have also put the kitchen into a higher bracket of popularity and modern designs have actually put many of them into the limelight. Preparing, cooking and serving meals has now become an art form instead of a chore and a great kitchen is a bonus.

Cooking In The Kitchen

Kitchens have advanced a long way over time. When it comes to storage, it has places for everything with easy to access pull out shelving, swivel stands for corner cupboards also allowing ease of access and making them a place you don’t mind having to work in. Of course, a large airy kitchen is a joy, with all the right appliances, ample bench space and plenty of storage for everything. But unfortunately, all kitchens are not the same in area, and modifications must be made in order to accommodate them. However, this does not mean the kitchen is inadequate. It just means it needs to undergo certain adaptable changes to make the space more available.

One way of making a room appear more spacious is using white paint on the walls instead of darker colours which can make the room appear smaller and enclosed. Putting brackets on the wall in the cooking area to hang egg flips, slotted spoons and ladles etc, will save on drawer space, and magnetic brackets which hold knife sets for cooking are also a good idea for the same area. An island bench in the middle of the kitchen is great where bench space is limited, and by making the bench top wider on one side, this will enable a stool or two to go underneath.

Natural Stone Marble Countertop Bench

Great for sitting and chopping food, or just checking out recipes! Have one end of the bench made into shelves to hold your recipe books, and storage for food preparation utensils and bowls, or perhaps appliances. This can all be included in your kitchen designs in Brisbane at the planning stage.

If space allows it, a closed in mobile tray that can be used for storing crockery and cutlery for the dining table inside, and beverages or other items on top, is a very useful idea for making the most of a small kitchen, and it can be rolled back in place when not in use. Mug trees don’t take up much room on the bench and save extra cupboard space. These are just a few ideas for smaller kitchens.

Get Maximum Kitchen Storage In Small Spaces

If you want your kitchen renovated but the space is small, don’t be disheartened. There are loads of space saving ideas to create amazing kitchens even if the space is restricted, especially with the right team and advice.

If you’re looking for some great little ideas for extra storage space in your small kitchen, keep reading.

Make The Most Out of Shelving

You can get a lot more out of storage spaces if you use shelving. Where cupboard or drawer space is lacking, you can add shelving to your walls or even extra shelving in cupboards. Shelving on walls can hold cups and glasses, for example. On the other hand, using stackable shelving you can fit in extra plates and plastic containers.

Grange, Brisbane, QLD Kitchen Renovation

Make Use of Space Above Cabinets

Bulkheads above your cabinets can be a viable space for storage. When this is removed, you can use baskets for storing different items or simply place items on top of the cupboard. This form of storage, however, will require you to be diligent with your dusting on top of cupboards.

Storage of Miscellaneous Items

Sometimes there is a drawer in the kitchen that is used for miscellaneous items such as foil, plastic wrap, garbage bags and more. Keep this drawer free for other items and store miscellaneous items more wisely.

The cupboard under the sink is perfect for these items. You can get storage racks to attach to doors for foil, et cetera. You can use installed rods to hang spray bottles of cleaners and rods to act as dispensers for garbage bags.

Island Bench Tops

Island bench tops are a great way to use the space well. If you get high bench seat, this can double as your dining table. You can even consider getting an island bench on wheels so you can move this out of the way when not in use.

Hanging Rails

Hanging rails are great for freeing up bench or cupboard space. If you can hang pots then you are able to effectively free up a whole cupboard and it saves you from bending down every time. Alternatively, hanging baskets with fruit and other items, above benches will mean you don’t have clutter on your bench or fruit bowls. This gives you more space to work in.

Your options are plenty; for best advice that fits your own kitchen needs, contact us at Craftbuilt Kitchens today at (07) 3341 9166 or visit our showroom at 2958 Logan Road, Underwood QLD 4119.

Whether it is for a new home or an existing home, planning a new kitchen is a very exciting time. If you have been putting up with a tired, old kitchen that is falling apart, then planning a new kitchen is probably twice as exciting.

When it comes to renovations, enlisting the services of a highly qualified and experienced professional is a must. The team at Craftbuilt Kitchens are extremely talented and are knowledgeable when it comes to designing your own dream kitchen.


A Few Points To Consider

There are quite a few things to consider when it comes to planning your kitchen. The space you have to work with is a major factor. If your kitchen is a small area then your designer can offer suggestions on how to make it appear bigger. One key trick is the direction of colours that will work with the space you have and not against it.

Your budget is another major factor when renovating your kitchen. Preferably, the budget should be worked out before you visit a showroom. There is nothing worse than falling in love with something you can’t have. If you know your limits before you look then it is easier to stick to your budget. But don’t hesitate to ask for options. Craftbuilt Kitchens offers Interest Free finance for you, as well.

Lastly, your kitchen is usually one of the first places a guest will notice. Therefore, it is important to have a kitchen that is not only well planned but also one that shows your own sense of style.

Strategic Placing A Must

Too often, people put up with kitchens that are designed poorly. The space itself is not used to its best advantage. Cooktops that are placed in awkward positions, under cupboards and benches, can end up as being nightmares in the kitchen.

Your designer can discuss with you a great range of space saving ideas that are available now, as well as the importance of setting your kitchen out to follow the work triangle. This simply means that your cooktop, fridge and sink are placed in a triangle to provide a more functional work space for you.

Modern Technology Using 3D Software

Thanks to the 3D designer software that the designers at Craftbuilt Kitchens use, you will be able to see how your kitchen looks before it comes to life. This is perfect as it allows you to discuss any possible changes with your designer and the concept can easily be explained whilst you view the layout in 3D.


Kitchens That Work And Last Only With Professionals

The DIY industry is booming and many people have saved themselves a great deal of money by carrying out projects, on their own, around the home. However, this does not mean that DIY is always the best way.

There are some things around the home that you are much better off getting done professionally such as plumbing, electrical and kitchen renovations. The catch with DIY projects is, unless you are a professional in that field, there is always room for error.

Why DIY Kitchens Are Not The Best

Renovations for kitchens need to be executed properly for a few reasons. Taking the correct measurements of the space available is incredibly important to ensure that all cabinetry and appliances selected will fit well.

Any errors made in this area could mean you have cupboards sticking out where they shouldn’t and have new appliances that won’t fit where they need to. Another issue that can arise with DIY kitchens is, without the correct tools, knowledge or training, there can be mistakes made during installation.

What can then occur is that your kitchen will ‘fall apart’ sooner than expected. By then, you will need to pay more to have repairs done or take the chance at repairing yourself. Either way, it could end up costing you more time and money. This headache could have been saved by having a professional take over the job.

Professionals – The Only Way To Go For Kitchen Renovations

To avoid mistakes, time wasting and extra costs that can come with DIY kitchen renovations, it is always best to enlist the services of a professional kitchen design and installation company such as Craftbuilt Kitchens.

Craftbuilt Kitchens have been in the industry since 1975. With over 40 years of experience, they have built a path of many satisfied clients who have been enjoying their kitchens for some time. They boast a reputation that is synonymous with high quality and great service. By hiring only qualified cabinetmakers you are assured that the end result is a kitchen you will be thrilled to own.

The team at Craftbuilt Kitchens are incredibly friendly and easy to approach; no question is too big or too small and the designers will work with you and listen to your needs to help build the kitchen of your dreams.


Choosing Your Ideal Kitchen Style:

The way kitchens are designed today are very different from the past. The open plan kitchen has become popular and this is for good reason, with its ability to create the feel of more space.

More and more kitchens are seen as the meeting point in a home for family and friends and the desire for more stylish kitchens has become quite important.

There are many fantastic choices in kitchen design to choose from and the experts at Craftbuilt Kitchens combine their expertise and experience to design and build the kind of kitchen you thought you could only dream about.

Deciding On A Style

You need to be sure that the style you decide on is one that you will be happy with for some time; this is because when you pay to have a kitchen renovated, you intend it to remain this way for a good many years.

Naturally, you need to keep within the theme of your home; this does not mean to say that it needs to be exactly the same. However, the existing decor and your new kitchen should complement each other.

Some of the more popular styles are traditional, contemporary, utilitarian and commercial.

Choosing Your Kitchen Layout

From there you need to choose a layout. Popular styles are C-shaped, J-shaped, U-shaped and Galley. The U-shape offers more cabinet space than the other layouts so it is perfect for those who need a lot of storage.

The Galley style kitchen will take up the most space and is fantastic for a combined kitchen and dining room in a long narrow room. Breakfast bars are a popular addition to any kitchen and are great for units and smaller areas that may not be able to accommodate a dining table.

A Little Help From Craftbuilt

Thanks to the highly qualified and experienced designers at Craftbuilt Kitchens you will never feel overwhelmed with so many great choices. They can expertly discuss and suggest what style and layout might suit your specific home the best, whilst helping you choose the right colours and offering great advice for storage solutions, amongst others.

Good Kitchen Designs For Great Kitchens

It’s important to consider exactly how your kitchen will be set out when having a new design drawn up. You need to take a practical approach and maximise the use of your space in relation to functionality. When you are thinking about what you would like your new kitchen to look like, make a list of things you don’t like about your current kitchen. More often than not, people are dissatisfied with their existing kitchen due to lack of workspace and poor layout. Once you have a budget in mind and an idea of how your new kitchen should look, you are ready to change the way you prepare meals for the better.

Getting The Layout

Walls, gas lines and pipes can normally be moved with a little effort and the idea should not overwhelm you. There needs to be enough space between each functional area such as storage, cooking and workspace areas, to allow free movement. Creating a work triangle in your kitchen is ideal. This is made using your sink, fridge and cooktop and placing them in the shape of a triangle not more than 7m apart. Probably the biggest unit in your kitchens in Brisbane will be the dishwasher and sink. Placing these first up against a wall underneath a window will allow for fantastic natural lighting and convenient drainage. For easy loading and unloading of your dishwasher, if you will be getting one, ensure it is close to the cutlery but away from kitchen cupboard doors and stove. Naturally you will want your food preparation area situated between the sink and stove for ease of preparing, cooking and cleaning food.

Enough Workspace

Good workspace is very important in a kitchen that is enjoyable to cook in. Having your benchtops at variable heights will mean they can accommodate different users and tasks, for example, if you have children that like to ‘help out’ with the cooking, then a lower bench will make this a lot easier. If you have the room, try to add workspaces next to areas like the oven, cooktop and fridge and avoid positioning in a corner. If you utilise your drawer and cupboard space well, there should be less clutter on your benchtop. Consider shelving with inserts to have various levels of storage inside or drawer inserts. Spice holders will not only keep your spices organized but also clear more room in the cupboard for other things.

Discuss your kitchen design ideas with a professional consultant. You will soon see there are more possibilities for the kitchen you dream of.
