Continue reading to learn what you should keep in mind when remodeling your dream kitchen.

It’ll Take Time to Plan Your Kitchen Makeover

Give yourself plenty of time to plan before contacting our remodeling contractors. It’s much easier to delete a pin on Pinterest than it is to tell one of our contractors you want the dishwasher to go on the other wall. Changing your mind once we’re in the middle of your kitchen remodel is a quick way to drive up the cost and delay the agreed upon timeline.

Kitchen Appliances Are a Pain to Move

Many homeowners choose not to move their appliances, even for a kitchen remodel. The less demolition and reconstruction your project involves, the less dust and debris you’ll have in your house. It also takes a lot of plumbing and electrical work to move a major appliance from one wall to another or to demolish a wall entirely.

More Storage Space Frees Up Your Counters

Tired of having clutter on your kitchen countertops? Consider installing kitchen cabinets that reach the ceiling. While you’ll need a ladder to reach the upper shelves, there’ll be plenty of space for all your stuff. After all, how often do you use that Christmas platter you were gifted years ago? We’re willing to bet not that often.

It’s worth having a clutter-free kitchen, even if it means getting on a ladder a couple times a year. Bonus: You won’t ever have to dust the tops of your kitchen cabinets again.

Confirm There’s Enough Room For a Kitchen Island

Not every kitchen can accommodate the addition of an island. Unless you have at least 36 in. of space around where you’d like the island to be, it’s going to feel cramped and crowded. If possible, our remodeling contractors recommend having a clearance of 42-48 in. all the way around, so pre-planning and measuring are key here. Remember also an installed kitchen island will need electrical outlets as well.

Quality Products Look Nicer and Last Longer

We understand you’re on a budget. However, it’s worth investing in high quality products for your kitchen makeover. For example, we recommend buying quality kitchen cabinets or countertops that are guaranteed to last decades. You get what you pay for during a kitchen remodel.

Match Your Kitchen’s Style to the Rest of Your Home

Your kitchen is just one part of your home’s overall architectural style. If you want to make a dramatic shift in style, you might end up with akitchen design that doesn’t match the rest of your house. Our contractors will be able to help you make changes that complement the rest of your home.

Kitchens are Busy Places

Think about how you walk through your kitchen. Many interior designers say there is a triangle of foot traffic between the fridge, stove, and oven. Keeping that in mind, it’s important that you don’t disrupt this natural flow of foot traffic. Otherwise, the layout of your kitchen will become cramped and awkward. Our remodeling contractors will make sure that there is plenty of space for your kitchen island and other amenities.

Communication is Key

Before your kitchen remodel begins, we recommend meeting up with the project manager and construction team. This is a great opportunity to discuss expectations, ground rules, and contact information. Make sure you also get the contact information of our kitchen remodeling contractors so you’ll be able to reach them during any phase of the project.
