Home Living : August 3rd 2010
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, August 3, 2010 New book a top tool » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Australia's love of property extends to its love for renovations, particularly kitchens. However this love affair can often turn nasty when so-called specialists offer substandard service and product. Irate consumers suddenly face blown-out budgets, shoddy workmanship and chronically-late delivery on their purchases. ''I've met people who were without their kitchen for six months as the old one was removed too early, while key components of the new kitchen were delayed,'' says Michael Kitchener, of Kitcheners Kitchens. Living without a kitchen for even a matter of days is a nightmare, which has compelled him to draw on his vast knowledge and publish Australia's first Essential Kitchen Ideas e-book to protect you from getting burnt when buying a new kitchen. The book covers all essentials and critical facts including: Utilising space of any size, ensuring it's designed to its fullest potential. Hence a kitchen that is right for you, not one that simply imitates what is in the glossy magazines; Considering the widest range of components and finishes so you do not have any regrets when it's too late; Knowing when designers are cutting corners, again before it's too late. Quality fixtures, fittings and workmanship should insure against it; Understanding timelines so that design-to-delivery doesn't feel like an eternity; Safety tips to ensure that the finished kitchen is not a disaster trap waiting to happen; Installation tips, as shoddy installers and poor measurement can have disastrous consequences; and Budget and payments issues so bills don't come in twice as high, or you're left high and dry after making a deposit.
