Things to consider before remodeling

Remodeling Your Kitchen

It’s possible you’ve been thinking about remodeling your kitchen for years. Or maybe, you just started thinking a kitchen remodel could help improve the functionality of your home. In either case, our Kitchen Designer at Home Builders Supply Company has a couple of recommendations before you actually begin your kitchen remodel.

Have you determined what isn’t working in your current kitchen?

Do you like how your appliances are arranged, how they flow with one another – or is one of your appliances in an inconvenient location? What types of appliances do you currently have? Do you love to cook, would a different type of stove improve your cooking experience? Do you need a larger countertop or more storage space? Do you like where everything in your kitchen is currently stored, is it easily accessible?

Answering these types of questions will help a Kitchen Design Specialist make creative solutions for your space, making your kitchen work better for you and your family’s lifestyle.

What goals are your trying to achieve with your remodel?

When it comes to kitchen remodels, not all remodels and clients are the same – each one is very different. One person may be focused on adding more storage space, while another is desiring a fresh new look, and a third wants to improve the flow from the kitchen into other areas of their home.

It is important to determine your goals for the space so a Kitchen Designer knows what is most important to you so they can design a kitchen that fits your needs, taste, and budget.

Do you have any inspiration that you can share?

A designer loves to see your inspiration, so show them your magazine clippings, Pinterest boards, photos of a friends’ kitchen—whatever inspiration you have for your kitchen remodel, make sure you share it!

However, the beauty of working with a Kitchen Designer is that if you don’t know exactly that you want, they can help you figure it out. As a matter of fact, if you have an open mind the sky might be the limit to your kitchen remodel. Every kitchen doesn’t need white cabinets and stone countertops. Our designer can work with you to add textures, colors, and architectural elements to your remodel that will be unique, beautiful, and function for you and your family’s  lifestyle.

Have you considered what the budget for your kitchen remodel will be?

Because it is hard for a homeowner to estimate how much a kitchen remodel will cost, this can make them hesitant to share their budget. It’s typical for clients to have a general idea of what they want to spend on a remodeling project. We encourage you to share your budget, this will give the designer a starting point to help build a project that can fit into your budget.  And, it’s possible that it could be a remodel that can be done in phases. This could help accommodate your budget now and create future plans to expand the project as you are able to do so.
