Does Your Kitchen Need an Upgrade?

Your kitchen is the hub of your home. It’s where you connect over meals, have family game nights, and organize the chaos in the mornings. It’s also one of the most important rooms to keep up-to-date if you’re planning on selling. Depending on how old your home is, it could take a major remodeling project if you’re trying to improve it. So, how do you conquer your kitchen remodel? Here are a few tips.

Plan. Plan Again. Plan Some More.

To keep construction time minimal and on budget, you should plan your kitchen remodel extensively. The National Kitchen and Bath Association recommends that you plan for six months when remodeling a kitchen. Think about your existing kitchen, how traffic flows, prepare for the unexpected, and ergonomics.

Keep Your Footprint.

It’s easy to start demoing and start from scratch, but you should keep your same footprint. Problems can begin with a change in footprint; when you start moving plumbing and electrical, costs go up.

Buy Appliances That Work For You.

Your oven and refrigerator are important tools in your kitchen, but you don’t have to buy luxurious appliances that look good. Think about your lifestyle and how you cook. Spend your money on cabinets and flooring.

Create Storage Space.

Storage is essential in any room, but it plays a big role in the kitchen. Try adding cabinets that reach the ceiling or hanging shelves for storage.

Constant Communication is Key.

Staying in constant communication with your contractors is crucial for a successful remodel. It will help you stay on budget and on time. Be present during working hours, have a clear communication plan, and give the project manager your cell and email for easy communication.
