If you are in an apartment or small house, or just have a limited amount of space in your kitchen, it is a good idea to visit a kitchen showroom to get some ideas about what might work for you. There are innovations such as rollaway work benches, multi hinged doors and so on that will help you maximise the space that you have available in your small kitchen.
Always go for good wood which is termite resistant.
If you cannot afford to hire someone, don't worry. It is not that hard to do the updating yourself. Lots of magazines and books are out there that will give you step-by-step instructions and all the other pertinent information you will need to do the job. Your friends would most likely help you out as well.
