Things to Consider Before Your Kitchen Remodel

 In blog

If you are considering a kitchen remodel, there are some things you want to think about first. It isn’t a project that you want to undertake lightly, and you want to be as educated as possible up front to make absolutely sure that you get what you want out of the project. Kitchen renovations are popular for a reason. They can breathe a new life into the busiest room in your home, and have a substantial impact on your property value. Before you start, here are some things to think about.

Likes and dislikes

What are your least favorite things about your current kitchen? What are some of its redeeming qualities? A big part of knowing what you want is also knowing what you don’t want. It is a good idea to think about some other kitchens that you have liked – be it friends or family or kitchens you have browsed in a showroom.

Long-term plans

 

How long will you be living in this home? Is this a project to boost resale value, or a project to design and create what will be your perfect kitchen for years to come. This might play into the materials you use or the trends you follow in the design process.

Needs

What are your needs? If you have a growing family or frequently entertain, these are important considerations. If you cook frequently in a high-traffic home, your design can be geared towards that. Some don’t cook often, so the focus could be placed in other areas of the remodel.

Appliances

Do you want to work around your existing appliances, or will you be investing in new ones? This could have an impact on how you design your new space, optimizing the integration of your appliances.

Substantial changes

Do you have any substantial structural or design changes in mind? If you are hoping to tear down walls or move things around significantly, this is good to know up-front.
