Kitchen remodels can get complicated if you aren’t careful. With so many moving parts, it’s easy for things to get out of hand. The best thing you can do to assure the success of your new kitchen is plan everything out as detailed as possible before it even starts. Make sure you’re working with a contractor that you trust and will help you through this complex process.
Focus on Your Floor Plan
Your floor plan is the foundation of your kitchen renovation. You need to figure out how to get the most possible space out of the shape and size of the area you’ve designated to be your kitchen. A great way to do this is to measure everything and create a perfectly to scale drawing of your existing kitchen. Make sure to include plumbing, windows, electrical outlets and more. This will help you explore your options when it comes to new fixture sizes and placement.
Prioritize Your Goals
If you’re considering a remodel, chances are you have a good reason. It’s easy to let the years pass by when there’s nothing wrong with your current kitchen, even if it is dated and not ideal. But remodeling your kitchen is about more than just an updated look. Figure out exactly what you want to get out of your new kitchen. Is it more storage space? Better quality materials? Appliances with specific features? Make sure you know exactly what is most important to you, so that if you are too close to hitting your total budget number, you can pass up the smaller details without it being a big deal. This way when it’s finished, you won’t feel like all the time and resources you spent on your updated kitchen were for nothing.
Set Your Budget
To do a kitchen remodel right, you need to know how much you’ll be going in for beforehand. With so many extras and possible additions for a new kitchen, it’s easy to get carried away with the possibilities. This is why it’s so important to outline exactly what you want in your new kitchen, it’s much easier to go over the budget when you don’t. You should be able to contact a few contractors to get a range of quotes to make sure you’re in the right ballpark.
