Or as your budget allows - whether you just want to replace your taps or you're interested in a whole new layout.
There is typically more involved in kitchen renovations than remodelling projects for other rooms, and this requires more careful planning. Arranging a consultation with builders or architects can give you an idea of how much you'll need to spend to carry out certain tasks, and whether the size and current layout of your kitchen mean extensive renovations are possible.
As well as making functional improvements to your kitchen, renovations can also be a great way to create an environment in which you feel comfortable and happy. Kitchen renovations can therefore be as simple as repainting walls and cabinets, or you may wish to replace all your fittings and decor to suit a more modern or traditional style.
Whichever style you favour in your kitchen, it's important to use quality materials that will stand the test of time, including tough surfaces for countertops and cabinets that are resistant to knife marks and other common forms of damage.

When upgrading your home for energy efficiency, don't overlook bathroom supplies and fittings. Energy savings light bulbs and dimmer switches could significantly lower your electricity bills and reduce the amount of energy wasted.
Uses for dimmer switches
Dimmer switches can be functional features in many rooms of the home, as well as offering aesthetic benefits. By lowering the light level in your bathroom, you can enjoy a relaxing bath without the safety hazards of candles, or simply set an appropriate light level for the time of day. Dimmer switches reduce the amount of energy being used by your light fittings, and with lighting being the primary drain on household electricity this can add up to big savings over time, as well as helping your bulbs to last longer before needing replacement.
Designer light switches
Dimmer switches are available in a variety of styles to suit different types of bathrooms, and shopping around for light switches and fittings could reveal more options well suited to contemporary or traditional bathrooms. If you have multiple lighting levels in your bathroom, such as accent lighting in addition to primary lighting, these switches could be combined in double or triple power points to save space and streamline your bathroom, while features like glow-in-the-dark strips can improve safety and make it more convenient to locate light switches in the dark.

your vanity unit is sure to provide you with some much needed storage space. Make sure you use it wisely, and fill your shelves with the products you’re most likely to want to be able to put your hands on in a hurry.
While your bathroom is likely to be the smallest room in your house, you’ll still have plenty of bits and pieces that need a home. From spare shampoo, toothpaste and toothbrushes to dental floss or soap, you can stock your vanity unit with all the extras you need.
There are some things no bathrooms will want to be without, and where better to store necessities like toilet paper than safely tucked away in your vanity unit? Tissues and clean towels can also be kept out of sight and ready for when you happen to need them.
Your vanity unit is the perfect place to hide away the cleaning products to keep your bathroom looking pristine. Make sure you have a cloth, some glass cleaner and an anti-mould spray on your bottom shelf, and you’ll have everything you need close at hand.
Some people like to keep their medicine supplies in their vanity units, but be certain to make sure you have these locked away if you have young children around. However, under the sink can be a good place to store things like plasters and bandages.
Find a vanity unit that will perfectly fit all of your bathroom necessities at Builders Discount Warehouse.

Types of air conditioning systems
The type of air conditioner you choose will depend on a number of factors, including your budget, the size of the area you need to cool and where you wish the system to be installed.
Among the smaller systems available are window units, which can be easily mounted in window openings when needed, and portable air conditioners, which can be moved between rooms as required and easily stored when not in use.
For larger rooms, central air conditioners can be the most effective options, or split units which require the condensing unit to be located outside the property.
How to choose air conditioners
Once you've decided on the best type of air conditioning system for your room or rooms, your next step is to compare different products from providers to find the best deals.
This means more than just looking for the lowest price available, as you'll also need to consider your cooling budget for the operation of the systems and look for units that are backed by warranties or come with additional features.
