After 15 years we have decided to renovate our kitchen. It's very tired and needs a complete overhaul.
We have decided on a kitchen fitter and very happy with the design. The design includes moving our cooktop from its current location against a wall out into an "island' type position.
We are very excited by the new design as it creates something fresh for an older type house. However herein ****** or problem: what kitchen appliances?
Having picked myself up off the floor when told of the kitchen cost (a little naive I was!) the cost didn't include a cooktop, rangehood or oven. The rangehood needs to be an Island type.
The budget we have given ourselves is $6,500 (hopefully under). We want quality, but need to be realistic - is $6500 unrealistic?
We have looked at Schweigen Range hoods and they look good. Seem silent which would be more ideal for island position. We are also considering Electrolux Oven and Induction Cooktop (this is a must for us- induction).
However the more I read/research, the more confused and concerned I get. Should we be spending more for quality (Meile or similar) given we plan to be here in this residence for next 10 years? Masterchef have Artison appliances - should we be looking at these.......
Please help....very confused!
Many thanks in advance
