Kitchen Bunnings Design
Bunnings National Kitchen Buyer Simon Warmington says, when it comes to renovating, there are three key areas to consider – layout, storage and style – and these are the three elements considered during each of the following kitchen makeovers…
Kitchen #1: The under $1000 kitchen
If you’re looking to make a big impact but want to stick to a small budget don’t fret – miracles can be realised with a simple coat of paint.
This kitchen has been completely transformed using primarily laminate paint, a new blind and vinyl flooring to create a whole new look for under $1k!
Simon says this kitchen is an example of the incredible makeover that can be achieved with a few mates, the family or even on your own over one weekend.
The dark charcoal paint is a smart colour choice as it easily masks the wear and tear of the original cabinetry and gives the room a fresh modern façade. Charcoal is also a classic colour that won’t date quickly.

Kitchen #2: The industrial cooking zone
Total cost: under $12, 000
This industrial looking kitchen is an example of how easy it is to quickly create a ‘wow factor’ while working within a budget. Simon says this kitchen is the ideal mix of functionality and style, with features that make it perfect for a busy and vibrant household.
The wide bench space allows ample room for meal preparation and dining while the subway tile splashback behind the rangehood is easy to keep clean.
The clever chalkboard wall is an easy D.I.Y. addition that will keep the household organised, acting asa shopping list or reminder board while also adding a touch of modern style to your space.
The laminate material used for the benchtop is another key feature of this kitchen. According to Simon, one of the most budget friendly benchtop materials is laminate; it’s easy to clean, available in a wide range of colours and styles, and is highly durable.
