Developing a kitchen remodel design plan requires a lot of thinking about multiple aspects within the space. Asking yourself some important questions will help to refine your budget and design. Consider what you are hoping for from the space provided. Do you want a large island countertop, a new breakfast bar, or more storage space? Think also about how you want the kitchen to function. Do you frequently entertain guests and need more seating room? Do you have kids and pets and need a kitchen that is going to have convenient storage space and easy accessibility for busy days? And lastly, think about the size and layout of your current kitchen. Is the remodel you are imaging going to fit in this space? Are you going to need to tear down walls to arrange everything comfortably? These are all essential questions that will help spur ideas for your remodel and helpt o refine your budget and timeline.
When you watch the remodeling shows on TV, a typical kitchen remodel happens in only one episode, accompanied by time-lapses and energetic montages. In reality, these projects take much longer and are a lot messier. Demolition is the first step to any remodel, tearing down and taking out what doesn’t need to be there anymore. This phase is going to include removing the cabinets, molding, removing appliances, and anything else that is getting renovated. During this stage is an excellent time to inspect your plumbing system and replace or repair anything that needs it. Installing a brand new kitchen with out-dated plumbing is like taking two steps forward and one step back. When you remodel a kitchen, you want the entire thing to be like a brand new space, and that includes your plumbing. All the electrical work is done next, including light fixtures and appliances. Ensuring all of these wires are in the right places will help everything go much smoother. After all of the fundamental steps are completed, it is time to put up the drywall and paint the room. At this stage, more of the aesthetic aspects come into play, including flooring, cabinets, countertops, backsplashes, and appliances. Voila! Newly remodeled kitchen!
