Come Inside! Tour Didi Khumalo’s Luxurious Infinity Surfaces’ Kitchen
SA Youtuber and Digital Creator, Didi Karabo Khumalo went about the ultimate transformation when she took on her own kitchen’s design journey. Didi started off with a blank canvas and she knew that Infinity Surfaces would help her turn her countertop dreams into a reality.
Kitchen Reno with Didi
Wanting a unique and timeless look with that ‘wow factor’, Didi turned to two Infinity Surfaces colours. Nero Marquinia and Calacatta Oro feature in an impressive split-level island that is the centre of attention. The subtle gold detail of the Calacatta Oro warms up the kitchen’s design aesthetic, while the Nero Marquinia adds a level of sophistication to the space.
For a sense of continuity, the Calacatta Oro also features on the backsplash behind the gas burners and kitchen utensils. Growing up in her grandmother’s home, Didi loves how the kitchen is the space for people to come together and create magical memories with food as the focus.
Family-friendly and hygienic, Infinity Surfaces offers the perfect surface for those high-traffic areas such as the kitchen. Didi loves this feature because her son is usually in the kitchen with her when she’s cooking, and she needs to make sure that he’s safe.
Didi’s Top Kitchen Renovation Tips
1. Plan, plan, and plan some more!
Don’t rush the planning stage of your kitchen as this is the crucial time to not only figure out how you want your kitchen to look, but also how it needs to function for you and your family. Didi recommends taking at least 12 months in this stage, as the kitchen is not a place you can easily redo in a couple months.
2. Decide on your desired surfaces
Understand that your kitchen countertops are a long-term investment and need to act as a foundation for the rest of the kitchen.
3. Manage your expectations
Any new renovators out there need to know that this process is not for the faint hearted. Do as much research as you can – and speak to as many industry professionals as possible. This way you’ll have a clear picture going into your kitchen renovation.
4. Use reputable companies & installers
Just like your surfaces are an investment, the same must be said for the people you choose to work with. Make sure you only get quotes from recommended Infinity Installers and get more than one quote so you know you’re being charged fairly.
5. See things for yourself
Having samples of materials is one thing but going to showrooms is vital so you know exactly what you’re getting. This makes sense as any investment deserves the proper amount of time and attention.
