WHY DO UP IF YOU CAN BUY NEW?The dream of renovating your kitchen in time for a cosy, beautifully cooked Christmas dinner may sound magical. But with unreliable tradespeople to organise and a skip full of setbacks to look forward to, instead of Christmas with all the trimmings, you could be looking at Christmas with a whole lot of trouble.
With the hope of a brand new kitchen to celebrate in, this couple are left regretting adding this renovation to their Christmas wish list. For a better way to spend Christmas, move into a spacious, open plan kitchen in a beautifully designed Redrow home.
The nightmare that goes way beyond ChristmasThinking you can get it all done and dusted for Christmas sounds great in principle. But in practice, coordinating all your tradesmen can be hard work, with nobody available when you need them and unforeseen problems arising at exactly the wrong time of year.
Rather than a winter wonderland, renovating your kitchen might leave you wondering why you started the whole sorry experience in the first place.
Don't let a costly kitchen renovation take the fizz out of ChristmasYour tradespeople will tell you that it’s all going to be a piece of Christmas cake. But the reality is the kitchen renovation you always wanted can lead to more problems than you ever expected.
If your kitchen fitters aren’t fit for purpose or if your builders bodge it, the delays can soon blow your budget.
