Kitchen Remodelling vs Kitchen Renovation, what is the difference?

Understanding the terminology in the carpentry industry isn’t always easy if you are not accustomed to it. This can be confusing, especially when you are looking for a particular service, but you’re not sure what that service is actually called. Take us at European Carpenter, for example.  We offer both kitchen remodelling services and kitchen renovation services, but do you know what the difference between the two is?  Do you know which one you need?

Kitchen Remodelling: what is it?

The dictionary definition of remodelling is to “change the structure or form of (something, especially a building)”. Basically, what this means is to take a space and change it, transform the structure, the style, the layout and to make the room completely different. So, if you have a kitchen that you want to change completely, so that you have a brand-new and unrecognisable kitchen, then this is the service for you.

Kitchen remodelling involves complex design alterations and construction, including: electrics, plumbing, re-plastering/tiling and property extensions. For this you should always use an experienced carpenter and designer, someone who is reputable and qualified.

Kitchen Renovation: what is it?

According to the Oxford Dictionary, the definition of the word ‘renovate’ is to “Restore (something old, especially a building) to a good state of repair”. Essentially, to make it as good as new, not to drastically change, but to return something to its former glory. This service, is therefore ideal for someone who has a kitchen that is old or in a state of disrepair and is in need of some TLC.

This includes installing new fixtures and fittings, re-decorating, re-facing or replacing cabinets, etc. to not only make the space more attractive, but to also add value to the property.
