Keen To Have A Kitchen Renovation In 2024?

The kitchen is widely acknowledged as the heart of any home. It’s a gathering place for family and friends where some of our most special memories are made, not just a room. 

Planning to renovate this room can be extremely exciting, and there’s never been more tips available online or in magazines. However, it can be difficult to know where to start.

Whether you’re looking for inspiration from the latest trends or want a classic, timeless design, we will work with you to achieve the best results. Here are a few tips on planning a transformation of your kitchen:

Decide exactly what your budget will be. 

Determine how much you’re willing to spend on your kitchen renovation. You need to create a budget that includes room for unexpected expenses. Our services at S&M Solutions Ltd include planning, design, and seamless execution, ensuring a smooth and successful project completion.

Determine what your goals are. 

If you’re transforming a current kitchen, you must decide whether you want to create more space, make the room more functional, modernise the design, or all of the above.


If you’re creating a completely new kitchen, you need to ensure the set-up suits your lifestyle. Above is a garage conversion and remodelling service we carried out in Tower Bridge. 

The layout is particularly important, with it being best to aim for a functional ‘work triangle’ with a stink, stock and refrigerator. You should also consider features such as an island, larder, and storage solutions. 

Many kitchen renovations help to accommodate energy-efficient appliances, which can lower your utility bills. Smart technology, like smart lighting and appliances, can also make your kitchen more of a pleasure to use. 

Another place to look is at installing top-quality countertops. It’s best to look for durable materials like quartz, granite or a solid surface.

Work with S&M Solutions Ltd, and you’ll have experienced renovation experts. 

We can save you time, help you avoid costly mistakes, and provide invaluable insights and ideas.

If needed, we can use eco-friendly, sustainable materials during your renovation. Recycled, reclaimed, or FSC-certified wood and energy-efficient windows can all contribute to a more environmentally friendly kitchen.

A trend for kitchen renovations in 2023 is open shelving, which displays dishes and glassware. This helps to create a more airy feel in your room. Adequate lighting can also create a unique ambience, with task and accent lighting excellent for creating an atmosphere. 

A good-quality range hood can also help you to remove cooking odours and improve indoor air quality.

Create a personalised kitchen designed for your lifestyle. 

S&M Solutions can help you add unique elements like custom cabinetry, a distinctive backsplash, or unique hardware. We can also ensure you have excellent storage solutions, whether it’s pull-out shelves, deep drawers, or vertical storage solutions. A well-organised kitchen will help you keep things tidy and functional.

Another place to look is at your flooring. 

In a kitchen, it’s best to pick resilient flooring made of hardwood, ceramic tile, or vinyl. You also want it to be easy to clean and maintain.

If you’re having a kitchen renovation to improve the value of your property, S&M Solutions can ensure it’s transformed with potential buyers in mind. A well-designed kitchen can significantly increase your home’s resale value.
