When you are tired of an outdated or dysfunctional kitchen, you might be considering a kitchen remodeling job! Here at Premier Remodeling, we want to help you turn your kitchen from something bland into something beautiful. If you are considering remodeling your kitchen, here are a few tips to ensure the process is a smooth one!
- Plan, plan, plan! A well-done kitchen remodel doesn’t just happen. Take the time to look at many kitchens and make notes about what you like or don’t like. This can help narrow down ideas of what you want.
- Think about where you want to spend. Do you dream of a fancy appliance in your kitchen or would you rather have high-end countertops? If you balance your budget correctly, then you can add some high-end materials balanced by some less expensive options.
- Think about where you’d like to save. There are many options for tile, countertops, and even cabinets that will look great and help you to save your money. Balance these with your list of spendy must-haves.
- Consider how you use your kitchen. If your kitchen is a gathering space where you and the family cook, then splurge on extra chef tools and a large stove. However, if your kitchen is more a space for socialization and homework, then look at things like a charging station and place for easily accessible snacks.
- Find a quality contractor. One place you should never skimp is on your contractor. Find a quality contractor like ours and you will find the entire kitchen remodeling process goes much more smoothly.
- Give yourself realistic expectations. Kitchen remodeling is a messy process that is worth the payoff. Remember to give yourself realistic expectations of how long the process will take and that you might run into some unforeseen costs.
- Don’t forget to add some wiggle room. Add about 10% to your budget for those unforeseen costs! You might have a pipe or plug that needs to be moved or another issue that needs to be addressed. Wiggle room in the budget will help you remain calm.
- Take time for breathing and relaxation. The process of kitchen remodeling can be loud and messy. Don’t forget to take a breather from the many decisions of countertops and cabinets and spend some time doing activities you enjoy.
- Enjoy the finished results! When your kitchen remodeling process is over and done, chances are that you will love the results. Once you are done, enjoy your new kitchen!
