Popularity in home decor changes on a very regular basis – sometimes a simple cream vinyl wrapped kitchen is in fashion, whilst another year dark wood is the most popular thing on the market. Timber kitchens have popped up as the “must have” in kitchen designs many times over the past few decades. Whether your kitchen is made of pine, mahogany, oak or another type of timber – Dianella Polishing has seen it all! Are you thinking it might be time to update your outdated, timber kitchen? Check out our top 4 reasons why you should update your timber kitchen!


Reason #1 – white never dates.

A white, cream, or neutral kitchen, bathroom, laundry or kitchen cabinets rarely date or go out of style. White is timeless, and if you’re looking at updating your kitchen you want to make sure you are going to be happy with your choice for a long time.


Reason #2 – light colours make the space look bigger

There is something about a neutral coloured kitchen that brings a breath of fresh air into your house. Light colours often given the illusion of a more spacious room. So if your kitchen is a little bit on the small side, it may be worth considering updating your cabinets to something a little lighter.


Reason #3 – increase the market value of your house

Are you looking at selling your house in the near future? Maybe you want to start your renovations early to get ready to sell in a few years time? A neutral coloured kitchen will add considerable market value to your home. Not to mention, a simple, modern kitchen decor will appeal to a greater number of potential buyers. A timber kitchen may suit your tastes, but it doesn’t mean it’ll suit everyone’s.


Reason #4 – change is almost better than a holiday

We all know that old saying “change is better than a holiday”. Though we aren’t completely convinced of the saying – we do agree that sometimes a bit of a change is what you need. If you’re in a bit of a “renovation rutt”, starting with updating your kitchen cabinets could just be the change you needed.
