A KITCHEN is more than a stunning countertop and gorgeous kitchen cabinets. Integrate these 5 thoughtful tips when planning your kitchen remodel for a space that is functional and easy to work and live in.
1- GET INSPIRED
It's time to envision your ideal kitchen, determine the basic parameters and budget of the kitchen remodel you wish to do.
How do you use your kitchen? Consider functionality that suits your current lifestyle and can adapt to future changes. Function is as important as beauty, so think about the way your family will use the space.
To achieve a feel and look you'll love, explore the things that inspire you the most. Collect inspirational images; appealing remodel photos and color swatches to share with your designer and/or contractor.
Now is time to assess your needs and list the features you can't live without, ranked by importance.
2- FIND YOUR LOOK
Your remodel should reflect who you are and how you live. Are you more Contemporary or Traditional? Or maybe somewhere in between. Once you gather inspiration and determine the feeling you want to create, Kitchen Remodeling Authority designer can help you select the perfect materials, finish and details for your kitchen remodel.
3- PLAN YOUR SPACE WITH DETAILS IN MIND
Are you upsizing or downsizing? Are you starting a family? Do you already have one? Think about your life - what you need now and in the future. Do you usually entertain other couples or the little league team? Share your needs with our Kitchen Remodeling Authority designer. Then choose kitchen cabinets, accessories and remodel details that are right for you.
On a tight budget, choose the most important things first and add-ons or upgrades later. For example, the must-haves now would be kitchen cabinets, primary organization items, appliances, moldings, faucets, sinks and countertops. Details like special hardware, lighting fixtures can be added later while controlling costs in the shorter term.
4- CHOOSE DETAILS AND FINISHING TOUCHES
Your choice of hardware, glass door panels, moldings, lighting and fixtures pull it all together for a personalized look. Like jewelry, hardware is the personal touch that makes a living space truly yours, reflecting your personality and way of life. Details like crown molding, glass doors and carefully selected hardware will receive compliments for years to come.
