You’ve been waiting for the green light to begin the kitchen-remodeling process. Finally, the start line is in sight. The year 2017 is going to be the year! As you make plans for your kitchen remodel, consider these tips from our team at Stonesmiths Inc. of Noblesville, IN.
1. Set your remodeling budget.
If you haven’t already, determine what your budget will be for improvements. Once you get going with remodeling, it’s easy to get carried away and say yes to every upgrade. You can avoid overspending by setting a budget from the beginning and then sticking to it.
2. Prioritize your must-haves.
Most people can’t afford to include every upgrade in their kitchen remodel. Therefore, to make sure you get what you really want, make a list of the features that must be part of your dream kitchen. For example, your wish list might look like this:
- granite countertops
- professional-grade refrigerator
- built-in coffee maker
- tile flooring
Once you’ve planned and budgeted for your musts, then you can go about determining how else you can improve your kitchen.
3. Consider function.
If you’ve lived in your home for a while, you probably have a good idea of what type of flow will work in your space. However, you may want to do a little research or work with your contractor to determine the best kitchen layout.
4. Choose quality materials.
You’re investing in a custom kitchen. Don’t downgrade your improvements by selecting sub-par products. It’s always better to choose a few quality products that will stand the test of time than to redo everything, only to have it in disrepair in only a few years.
