Dos and Don’ts of Kitchen Remodeling
You’re ready to discover the kitchen of your dreams, but starting a kitchen remodeling project can be an overwhelming endeavor. Where do you begin? Having helped many families to find the right products for their kitchen, our showroom team members are ready to step in and guide you through the process. Here are some key points to keep in mind for a successful kitchen remodel.
What to Consider When Remodeling a Kitchen
Do: Think about the layout.
One of the most overlooked elements of a kitchen remodel is the layout. Remembering this crucial element will ensure that your kitchen functions the way it is supposed to while avoiding potential issues. Think about how you will be using your kitchen from day to day. Do you plan to entertain often and will need to accommodate guests?
Before committing to any design decisions and purchases, draw up the layout and double-check the dimensions. Preview this layout by collecting the measurements of all the design elements you plan to include in the space and use tape measures or strings to get an idea of how much room each element will take up.
Don’t: Forget about storage.
Between cooking equipment, food storage, and junk drawers, kitchens are often one of the most overstuffed spaces in a home. Take stock of your current inventory as you consider storage options that are functional and also enhance the look of your kitchen. Look for options that will allow you to store these items as efficiently as possible.
Do: Make sure there’s enough lighting.
Preparing a meal involves many visual components: measuring out ingredients, chopping up food, and reading the stove/oven temperatures. Envision yourself working in the space as you consider where to add bright task lighting, perhaps by the stove, near the sink, and over a kitchen island or workspace.
We can help you navigate the wide range of unique kitchen lighting ideas, from chandeliers to pendants, to find the best kitchen lighting fixture for your space. Extras like under-cabinet lighting can also make the kitchen brighter overall.
Don’t: Neglect your budget.
As you design your ideal space, identify your must-haves as well as a wishlist. As with all remodeling projects, and especially kitchens, the costs can add up. To help make sure that you are spending your money wisely, carefully price out the must-haves for your desired projects and compare them to your budget. There are also many ways that you can make your remodel more affordable, like refacing cabinets instead of having them fully replaced. Working with a showroom to identify the best fixtures and appliances for your home can ensure that you find the products that fit your unique style and stay within your budget.
