Turning old into new with a diy budget kitchen renovation

DIY’ers are taking advantage turning tired properties into cash!

There’s no doubt “The Fixer Upper”, “Selling Houses Australia” and “The Block” have inspired many hopefuls to take on a diy renovations saving money by doing it themselves. It has become another form of cash flow and is especially prevalent in Melbourne.

Here is one example of a recent 2 bedroom unit flip that has made the customer a great deal of money on selling day. What once was a tired old kitchen space has now transformed into an inviting open “I need this kitchen” appeal.


The Kitchen was revamped by the Kitchen Shack Preston team. Using white cabinetry and benchtops, updated appliances and modern pendant lights the unique modern styling has been created. A further painting of walls in white and polishing of floorboards has opened up the space to now become a spacious, fresh looking unit. Add a touch of modern styling and the unit looks a million bucks. This is a simple diy way to make a small fortune – $650,000 this one sold for.


Of course the location is key but so is time and budget.
