7 quick kitchen revamps
The kitchen sees lots of use on a daily basis, so over time it will start to look tired and show the signs of wear and tear.
A run-down kitchen is not an enjoyable place to prepare meals, plus a dated look won’t do you any favours come resale time.
Installing a new kitchen can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars and take weeks, but a simple surface transformation can be done on a DIY budget in a weekend.
Old benchtops, cabinets, sinks and floors can all be repaired, replaced or revamped to give the kitchen a completely new look.
To fix bench edges, gently pull back the laminate while cutting the old adhesive with a utility knife.
Apply contact adhesive to the back of the edging and the benchtop edge, then press them together firmly.
Run a roller along the edge and tape securely until dry.
