If your kitchen is no longer serving its purpose or if your family has outgrown it, maybe it’s time for a kitchen remodel. When you think about your kitchen design, think about the way you need it to flow in your home, what’s missing now that you want to incorporate, and what’s taking up space that you don’t use. Here are some remodeling tips to get you started.
Plan the Work
A great piece of advice is to plan the work before you get started. Having a clear vision of your remodeling project will help you organize an efficient and painless process. Work the plan out on paper and keep the big picture in mind. Choose your fixtures, color scheme, and other details that will make a big difference in the final look. Don’t be afraid to get a designer and contractor involved at this stage for some expert guidance.
A quick way to run up your budget is to relocate your plumbing and electrical outlets. Do everything you can to keep those features in the same position and work with them. This will save you plenty of money, time, and energy. You’ll have your kitchen back faster.
Invest in Lighting
No matter how big your kitchen is, the lighting makes a big difference. Consider mixing in some task and ambient lighting choices. You’ll use task lighting under your cabinets to highlight countertops tasks. Pendant lighting is another great task option for islands. You’ll find ambient lighting on the ceiling or incorporated into wall sconces for overall lighting.
Invest in quality options for your materials, accessories, and fixtures. It’s understandable how tempting it is to save a few bucks by opting for the cheaper models but remember that you get what you pay for; higher priced items are likely higher quality and will last you much longer.
You could always use ample storage in the kitchen; make this a priority in your kitchen remodel. Install cabinets that take advantage of your vertical space by extending them all the way up to the ceiling. You could also mount some shelving units in the cabinet doors themselves for small items like spices or your box of sandwich bags.
