However, if you want to first do more thinking about how you want your dream kitchen to appear, here are some tips of things to consider before your kitchen remodel project:
Discover Right Materials
You need to know where to save your money, and where you can splurge. You don’t have to go top-of-the-line every time if you’re working within a tight budget, and there are areas where your kitchen can really benefit from higher quality products. Our experts know exactly what products are on the market and can help advise you on which to choose at whichever price point best fits your plan.
When it comes down to it, the kitchen has a very functional purpose to it. Planning around that functional purpose can make you more efficient when it comes to cooking, washing, and finding what you need for your meals, snacks or drinks. We can help you plan exactly where you’ll locate everything in the most intelligent way possible.
Walkways and working space are important for kitchens, so you’ll want to adjust islands, peninsulas and countertops accordingly. You’re always moving in the kitchen when you walk or turn to your next task, so it’s important to consider freedom of motion.
Plan out the space for cabinet door clearance and organizers to make the most of corner space. Poorly planning this aspect of your kitchen can make it difficult to make the most of the space at the back of corners and doors that only partially open can really hinder your ability to access what you need. Research a possibility of hidden sliding doors and smart shelve systems.
Plan Landing Space
Your kitchen will have appliances, tools and kitchenware that all take up space, but planning to allow for open space on countertops is very important, especially around appliances. Do an imaginary cooking session, see where you really need outlets and switches, walk around your kitchen, dance in your kitchen and see if some of the things can be added or deleted. You’ll need a place to do your cooking, cleaning and other kitchen tasks, and the countertop is exactly where you need your space, there are options adding additional countertop space over sinks which comes handy during cookouts - planning a kitchen remodel and space layout is even more important than professional project execution.
