Helpful Tips for Kitchen Remodels

Getting ready to remodel your home’s kitchen? Here we give you some tips to help you.

Expect the Unexpected

Even the best-laid plans go awry during a kitchen remodel–be prepared! Add a 10% cushion to your finanical plan for problems that may arise. In case something happens, this could save your time and budget.

Make A Plan and Stick To It

Project costs tend to skyrocket when remodelers stray from the end goal.

Stay Connected

Stay in frequent contact with your designer and visit the job site regularly to confirm renovations are moving along as they should and staying aligned with your design vision.

Aim for Quality

Cheaper is rarely better. An estimate that seems too good to be true most likely is. The contractor is going to have to make those costs up somewhere, and chances are it will be with shoddy materials or cheap, inexperienced labor.

10 key tips to avoid getting burned on a kitchen remodel:

  • Don’t Overspend. Before you start planning, consider the market and decide whether a low-, medium-, or high-end kitchen remodel makes the most sense.

  • Don’t Lose Track Of Trends. There’s always something new in the world of kitchen improvement.
  • Keep The Plumbing Where It Is. Keep any pipe-connected elements where they are.

  • When getting new cabinets, go with Semi-Custom Cabinets ones. To save a lot in comparison with full custom and better if they come ready to assembly.

  • Take Advantage Of Free Advice.  Check out the larger home improvement centers for free, computer-based design services for help laying out your kitchen.
  • Don’t Mismatch Appliances. When buying new fridges, ranges, and dishwashers, stick with the same brand.
