If home remodeling is something you’ve never done before, you may not know where to start. As an experienced kitchen remodeler, we’ve helped countless homeowners through the process. Here are some of the tips we give them during our free initial consultation.
Decide What You Don’t Like About Your Kitchen
And we don’t mean “everything.” Think specifics.
- Do you not have enough drawer space?
- Are your cabinets too deep to really use?
- Do you wish you had taller cabinets to store more?
- Is the stove too far from the sink?
- Does the layout not work for your family?
- Is it too dark?
The more you can tell your kitchen remodeler about what you don’t like, the more they’ll be able to create an initial design that is to your liking.
Look at Elements in Pictures
Many people get hung up on the finished product of a kitchen remodel they see on television or online. You’ll likely never find a whole kitchen that’s exactly what you want. Instead find the elements that you like and talk to your kitchen remodeler about how they’ll go together and if those finishes are available. As styles and trends change, manufacturers discontinue things. However, being able to point out things that appeal to you will help your designer find elements from their suppliers that are similar.
Separate Your “Must-Haves” From Your Wish List
Ideally you can create your dream kitchen during your remodel. However, due to budget constraints, you may not be able to have exactly what you want. That is why we recommend separating the must haves from the wants early in the process. Your kitchen remodeler can then guide you to what trade-offs or sacrifices you’ll need to make in order to include as much of your wish list in your budget as possible.
