The choice of core materials impacts durability. Opt for materials like marine ply or medium-density fireboard (MDF) for cabinets. For cost-effectiveness, a laminate finish with edge banding on shutters is recommended.

  • Countertop

Black granite is a budget-friendly countertop material. Marble is less effective due to its porous nature. Consider options like Corian, Quartz, or Caesarstone if you're willing to invest more.

  • Appliances

Include appliances like hobs, chimneys, sinks, and faucets in your budget. Opt for quality here, as these are long-term investments.
