By Harry Molyneux, Director at My-architect, London

Embarking on a kitchen renovation or extension projects especially exceeding £100k demands a meticulous balance between aesthetic indulgence and functional necessity. The diverse range of kitchen appliances available today can cater to various preferences, from budget-friendly options to luxurious selections, each bringing its distinct charm and functionality to the table.

1. Defining Your Budget and Needs

It is crucial when calculating costs to clearly define the budget and assess the specific needs and preferences. Employing a cost calculator can provide a clear picture of the financial implications, assisting homeowners in making informed decisions that align with their budget and the desired level of luxury and functionality.
