One of the most satisfying things about working in kitchen renovations is helping to deliver someone’s dream kitchen, and completely transforming the space. Transformation is an understatement when talking about the project that Apollo Kitchens undertook in Carrington, a suburb in Newcastle’s maritime precinct. Designer Jim from our Beresfield showroom was tasked with creating a brand new kitchen, as part of the conversion of a 150-year-old church into a family home.

The practical things you need to consider are often small, but get them right and you’ll make a world of difference to your everyday kitchen experience. 1. Generous storage space A lot of older homes were designed with many smaller cupboards that aren’t really that practical. Today, homeowners are starting to realise the benefits of larger, more generous storage space that allows them to easily locate what they’re looking for. A word of caution: Be wary of cupboards that are deeper than they are wide, as you don’t want to lean right into the dark cupboard to rummage around for items that might be in the back.
