A Complete Checklist For Remodeling A Kitchen
When you decide to remodel your kitchen, even a minor cosmetic improvement requires you to keep in place a proper plan before undertaking such a project. It will ensure you get what you want for your kitchen and the changes are affordable. However, at Parsons Interiors, we understand that planning to remodel your kitchen can be quite a challenge if you are unaware of what to do. Fortunately, with a little preparation, you can handle your kitchen project quickly and easily.
As experts in interior design, we’ve created a handy checklist to bring your dream kitchen to life with as little stress as possible. Follow our checklist to remodel your kitchen flawlessly so that you can get back to the other important things in life.
1. Determine your budget
Before you start planning your kitchen, you need to know how much money you are willing to spend as renovating a kitchen is quite expensive. Make sure you don’t go over the budget you set for yourself, as the budget will help you moderate the cost of your remodel.
2. Write down your requirements
Figure out what currently works in your kitchen and what doesn’t. Also, consider if you need new appliances that you don’t already have. Then check whether you actually need new cabinets or just new faces, new flooring or repolishing, new windows or only window treatments. Rank the items in your list in the order of importance, starting with items you need to have and working your way down to the things you want.
3. Hire a designer and contractor
Before you can move forward with the project, you should have an experienced designer lined up to help you make these big decisions. Moreover, finding a reputable contractor in the early stages is also important in ensuring the project is completed on time. At Parsons Interiors, we have fantastic designers to help you get the kitchen of your dreams. We can also offer you professional contractor recommendations.
4. Come up with a new layout
Share with your designer how your current kitchen looks and where it needs improvement. Your designer will ask you questions about how you use the space to come up with a new layout that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
5. Select appliances
The appliances you want may have an impact on your cabinets, so make sure you pay attention to the size of these items. Another aspect you need to consider is the look and features of your appliances. For example, you may want to compare the pros and cons of a double oven and a separate cook-top or a full-size fridge and freezer in your kitchen space.
6. Select materials
Work with your designer to select the perfect counter, backsplash, flooring, cabinets, hardware, and paint color for your kitchen. You can plan ahead to order the materials so that you can keep your project on track. Just make sure that you consult a professional for their opinion.
7. Prepare for the installations
Pack up the clutter from your kitchen and leave it empty so that the contractors can begin their work. Also, make sure to set up a temporary kitchen or make necessary arrangements for food while your kitchen is under construction.
