Kitchen remodels are the most common type of home improvement project, which explains why homeowners spend the most money on them. The kitchen is the center of the home, and most everyone takes pride in theirs. Here are some of our best tips for making the most of your kitchen remodeling project:
- Plan ahead – The time you take to plan your kitchen remodeling project should be more than it takes to complete the project. A recommended amount of time just for planning is six months, according to the National Kitchen and Bath Association. This way, you’ll know exactly what you want and you’ll avoid surprising the construction crew with new ideas, which would further add to the cost of the project.
- Keep to the same area – It is very expensive to knock down walls and relocate pipes and outlets. Know the area of your kitchen, even look at the blueprints, and stay within the perimeter and measurements of your original/current kitchen.
- Appliances – While you may be allured by the sophisticated style of a large stove range and top-of-the-line refrigerators, there’s a reason why you find them in restaurants and not in the average home kitchen… they’re used by the professionals! Unless you are a chef yourself, stick to basic or smaller appliances, but still read customer reviews to make sure you get the best. Focus your attention instead on the functionality and design of the kitchen itself.
- Adding storage – We’re all privy to the fact that, over time, our cabinets seem to lose their storage space. What once held a seemingly unlimited amount of plates, food, tupperware, and small kitchen gadgets, are now spilling over. What happened?! To put off the inevitable overflowing cabinet, consider extending the height of your cabinets to reach the ceiling. This will also eliminate the need for annual dusting above the cabinets.
