A kitchen is the center of daily life for cooks, hosts/hostesses and families. It can bring great joy and a feeling of comfort and it’s also been known to cause stress from time-to-time. When it comes to a kitchen remodel, there are some things that you will want to consider before you start demolition on those outdated cabinets. Whether you’re planning a complete kitchen renovation or just need a little revamp, we have some tips for you to make the process smoother.
Budget for It
It is important to be realistic about the cost. Aim for a goal below your max budget to ensure you have extra funds. Many homeowners end up changing their mind on certain aspects of a project after it has been started. Changes after the first hammer swings become more costly. We do our very best to be sure the plan we start with is the plan we end with, but unforeseen circumstances happen.
Do Your Research!
Any and all information you bring to the table will help when designing your new kitchen. Photos from Pinterest, examples from magazines, samples from the local tile shop all help and give us insight into your likes and dislikes.
Assess the Current Use of the Space
Think about how you currently use your kitchen space. What about it works well? Where are the points of congestion? How can things be arranged so they are more convenient when you are cooking or entertaining. The “Kitchen Triangle” model is helpful when thinking about convenience. What are the three most used aspects of your kitchen? Those pieces should be arranged in a triangular pattern for ease of use.
