One of the small investment units kitchen is in a bad way. It is showing its age and the cupboard doors under the sink are water damaged. I’ll see if I can get some digital photos.
The quote from the property manager’s handyman came in at $350 to supply and fit two cupboard doors! I figure a new kitchen would set me back about $1500 so this is not good.
Cashflow is tight so a new kitchen is unfortunately not feasable.
My uncle suggested getting a two new doors to replace the water damaged ones. So I went off to John’s Pineboard Centre at St Peters in Sydney. Richard talked me through the options and we decided to replace all the cupboard doors and the drawer fronts in a simple white melamine. This will cost me less than the $350 quote for the two doors (I’ll have the exact cost tomorrow).
While the kitchen cupboard carcases are not in fantastic condition they are good enough for now. The countertop is reasonable. The new tenant will love what looks like a renovated kitchen.
