One of the most creative areas where you can revitalize your home is with a kitchen remodel.

Our in-person consultation will give you all the guidance you need, from kitchen design ideas to finding the right kitchen cabinets, countertops, color schemes and more. 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:
Buy the 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.
Eliminate Wasted Steps
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.
Make the Most of Open Space
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.
Avoid Corner Traps
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 deep space at the back of corners, and doors that only partially open can really hinder your ability to access what you need.
Plan Landing Space
Your kitchen will have a lot of appliances, tools and kitchenware that all take up space, but planning to allow for open space on countertops is very important, especially around appliances. You’ll need a place to do your cooking, cleaning and other kitchen tasks, and the countertop is exactly where you need your space.
