Top 5 Things to Consider before You Remodel Your Kitchen

Remodeling your kitchen is an exciting venture! Your kitchen is one of the places you spend the most time. How it looks will present a sense of who you are to guests, and how it functions will make a big impact on your day-to-day routine and how easy it is to entertain guests.

Valcon's Kitchen Remodeling

Before you dive head first into your remodel, there are a few things you should think about carefully. Here are the top five things we recommend considering before you lock down your remodeling plans:

Size

You can’t have a huge island with a hanging rack for your pans if you don’t have a kitchen that’s big enough to accommodate it all. Before you start tallying up your wish list, you need to take careful measurements of your kitchen so you can determine what you actually have space to include.

A North Phoenix contractor will help you understand the standard measurements for items like cabinets and islands, and you can refine your plan at that point. In the early stages, use your best judgement so you don’t get too attached to items that won’t fit in the space.

Existing Layout

You may love your current layout and just want to change out the cabinets or make a few tweaks here and there. Or you may decide that you want to strip everything down to the bare walls and start from scratch. Before you decide on the right layout, think through how you use the kitchen and what your pain points are now. Is it too hard to reach the things in the back of the corner cabinet? Do you always drop food and water on the floor on your way from the sink to the oven?

Thinking through these and other issues will help you determine a better layout for your kitchen so that you can make the most of your space while also enjoying maximum convenience.

Storage

A lot of people decide to remodel because they don’t have enough storage in their kitchen. When people say they don’t have enough “space,” they are usually referring to space for their dishes and kitchen gadgets, which is storage.

Assess your current space honestly and figure out how much more storage you will need. Conversely, if you feel like you have enough storage now, figure out how much you could realistically lose to make room for other items, like adding a dishwasher if you don’t have one now.

Maintenance

Marble floors might look pretty, but they are a pain to maintain, and they won’t last long in a kitchen. Before you get your heart set on certain materials or finishes, it’s important that you know how these items have to be maintained. You can make a wish list and then narrow it down as you do more research about maintenance.

Pay attention not only to whether an item will be durable in a kitchen, but also to what you are going to have to do to clean it. You may not want to constantly be scraping a glass stove top or wiping down a stainless-steel refrigerator.

Design Style

Of course, you should think about the style you want for your kitchen remodel, as well. After all, this is the chance for you to get a whole new look and to express yourself. You don’t have to be limited by the old paneling and hardware that was there when you bought the house. You can have the kitchen you’ve always wanted.

Spend some time looking through Pinterest boards or online magazines to get a sense for the types of kitchens you like and to learn about the options that are out there.

With proper planning, you can have a kitchen remodel that exceeds your dreams. Spend time researching contractors to find the right person for the job, and talk through each of these issues to ensure that you are creating the best plan for your kitchen.
