Helpful Kitchen Remodeling Planning Information

Remodeling your kitchen can be quite the experience for the uninitiated. Below are a few helpful tips to help you as you begin your journey to a better space:

  • Define the scope of work: Deciding whether to reface cabinets or install all new boxes can drastically alter the functionality of the space. Knowing what areas you would like to change can be a big help with it comes to getting estimates. You might consider working with a designer to come up with a usable layout that can get you the best bang for the buck. If you don’t use a designer, many kitchen and bath contractors can help out by recommending what other customers have done. Some kitchen areas that people commonly address when they remodel a kitchen are:
    • Lighting (add/change/delete)
    • Flooring (material choice/layout pattern/color/texture)
    • Cabinetry (paint/reface/replace)
    • Countertops (granite/quartz/solid surface/tile)
    • Appliances (range or wall oven & cooktop/counter depth fridge/etc)
    • Moving appliance locations (including the kitchen sink)
    • Adding and Island
  • Get More than one estimate: We encourage all of our customer to get multiple estimates. This ensures that you have a grasp on how a company does business and you will also have a better chance of finding a company that you get along with. Remember, you could be spending weeks with this company in your home on a daily basis, so it is important you and your contractor communicate well.
  • Make a budget. You should expect that a mid-range full kitchen remodel generally cost 5-10% of your home’s value.
