For the purposes of research I spent an hour looking through my local Bunnings.
Just concentrating on stainless steel double drainer sinks I found they stock over 20 different types.
Prices range from $118 right through to $1,553.
That’s 1300% increase.
Want a ceramic sink and you could double the cost again. . . . and that is just one small part of the kitchen.
You have got to select taps, counter tops, cupboards, cook tops, ovens, range hoods.
I’m not saying select the cheapest of everything . . . just remember the more you spend on the kitchen the less you will have to spend on the rest of the house, or you may finish up with an horrendous mortgage.
