At MLS Kitchens we have a whole range of budget-friendly kitchen ideas for you to choose from, and we are betting that in many cases if we showed you a comparison with a kitchen that is much more expensive, you might not be able to tell the difference.
The truth is that a kitchen only looks as good as the way it has been fitted, and in many cases less expensive materials and simpler design doesn’t detract from the overall appearance of a kitchen – it can even add to it. Here we run through four ways we can do this.
1. Stainless steel sink
A stainless steel sink costs less, but can look just as good as other materials, and be easier to clean. With a well fitted, well designed work top, the sink should not be a prominent feature, and it can sit discreetly well below the surface of a work top, blending in well with the rest of your kitchen.
2. Extractor fans
Sometimes homeowners make the mistake of spending an arm and a leg on extractor fans, while they could cut costs by purchasing models that do the job just as well. We have a number of high performance extractor fans that will take up less of your overall budget than the expensive brands often touted in design magazines.
The same can be said for taps – there are many taps we stock that are durable and look the part, but cost much less than you might expect, allowing us to deliver a much cheaper kitchen. They use ceramic disc technology, high pressure systems and all the latest features, but cost a fraction of the price.
Ultra-modern design can put hundreds of pounds on the price tag of appliances. You can always buy a machine which is just as effective for a much more reasonable price. If you aren’t in love with the design elements, you can always use cabinet fronts to mask appliances and fit in perfectly with the rest of the kitchen.
