The decision to remodel your kitchen is not an easy one. We can help!
Once the fun of picking out backsplash tiles and matching stainless steel appliances has worn off, you're left with a laundry list of practical items to check off before you can even consider taking a hammer to your outdated countertops.From determining a budget to considering further expansion, we’ve got the tips and resources you need to confidently move forward with your design project and bring the kitchen of your dreams to reality.
Here are a few things to consider if you’re looking to start a kitchen remodel project:
Consider your goal
Knowing what you want is easier than knowing why you want it, but taking a second to consider your ultimate goals can help inform your design decisions and set a realistic budget. Are you looking to add value to your home?Do you want something personalized?Do you want to increase square footage or optimize your current space?Whatever it is you’re looking for, we can help you make informed decisions about your home design that will meet and exceed the goals for your remodel.
Determine your priorities
Once you know why you're considering a remodel, it's time to prioritize your wants.We aren’t saying you can’t have it all, but knowing your priorities will help ensure that you are getting the features and fixtures that are most important to you.
Whether you want a kitchen optimal for entertaining or need the space and high-end appliances to whip up family meals (or both!), we will help you design the kitchen fully equipped with the things you need most.
Determine your budget
Now is the hard part: Determining your budget.
Before jumping headlong into your redesign project, it's important to consider how much you want to invest in your kitchen remodel and if it is proportionate to your end goals.
When planning your dream kitchen, it can be all too easy to get carried away perusing high-end kitchen finishes on your favorite online store. Before you know it, your cart is full of crystal knobs and custom glass tile backsplash and your budget is down the drain before the new hardwood has hit the subfloor.
Having a clear picture of what you’re looking to spend will help you avoid overspending and ensure that your project is completed on time and on budget.
Have a Timeline
If you fancy yourself a chef or have kids running around the house, remodeling your kitchen will likely obstruct your day-to-day. Based on the size of your remodel, it can take weeks to complete your project, so it’s important to consider your schedule requirements. We offer a time-effective solution and full transparency on how long your project is estimated to take and we will update you throughout the process if anything changes. While it's important to be flexible when taking on a large project, we understand that your home is where your life happens, and our goal is to always make sure you get the quality you are looking for in a timeframe that suits your family’s needs.
Consider updating other areas as well
Upgrading your bathrooms as well as the kitchen can further increase the value of your home. If you’re considering a kitchen remodel, consider updating the bathrooms in the same project, as this will not only add value but ensure a consistent design throughout your home.
Not ready for a bathroom update? No problem. Other areas such as outdoor living spaces or add-ons like solariums and porches can be great additions to your home and add value and points of interest. Additionally, completing the projects simultaneously will save you time and money in the long term. You may not have time in the future to complete the upgrades you want, or there may be limited availability from your designers. Not to mention, it will mean less disruption of your daily life down the road if everything is completed in one go.
