4 Kitchen Remodel Considerations
Updated: Aug 23, 2019
A kitchen remodel is one of the most exciting journeys a homeowner can embark upon. If you are considering a luxury remodel and wondering where to start and what to consider, we can help! Here are four considerations you should make during the kitchen remodel process!
How Much Space Do You Have?
Every nook and cranny of your kitchen is important, especially if you have a smaller studio kitchen. Depending on the size of your kitchen, you might have plenty of space to work with or not very much/ Keep size in mind when looking at additional features like an island or prep sink. You can also consider making more significant renovations by removing a wall or adding more space to your home.
What Do You Have Now?
While you are not beholden to your existing kitchen layout, you should think about it when planning your kitchen remodel. What do you like about your kitchen? What don’t you like? Major elements, like walls, windows, and doors will take more time and effort to fix, so also work with your kitchen designer to come up with creative ways to solve space dilemmas. You should also consider more nuanced questions like:
How easy is it to move around in your space?
Can you cook and bake easily in your kitchen?
How easy is it to move from the stove to the sink?
Is it easy to work with more than one person at the same time in the kitchen?
What’s Behind the Walls and Under the Sink?
The infrastructure of your kitchen also dictates how much work will need to be performed to get things up to snuff. If you are dealing with plumbing problems and electrical difficulties, those should be fixed during the remodeling process. In older homes, you might even be dealing with saggy floors or other serious structural problems that will need to be remedied.
How Do You Use Your Kitchen?
Finally, you should consider how you would like to use your kitchen. If you are the one always bringing family and friends over to entertain, your kitchen layout will look different than a layout designed for someone who mostly eats takeout. If you’re someone who prefers to cook their food everynight, then you need to make sure that you have the correct cooking equipment. If you love cooking, then there’s no harm in spending your money on things like this ninja 4 quart air fryer af100. However, even if you are a more traditional cook and just use an oven, then there is no harm in investing in a new one either if you can. The great thing about planning a luxury remodel is that the only limit is your imagination!
