Kitchen Renovation Considerations
The kitchen is the most popular room to be renovated, and it makes sense as it is the heart of every home. The central gathering spot where you dine with your family or entertain friends.
Naturally you want this space to cater to your lifestyle. Planning a kitchen renovation can be overwhelming and stressful. From deciding your budget, to picking colours, tiles, cabinets, countertops, to choosing the right contractors, the list can feel endless. Before you start there are a few things to consider:
Budget: The best place to start is with your budget. Setting a budget determines if you are doing a full remodel or a refresh, and gives you a realistic view of expectations. Luxury items and unforeseen hiccups can have your budget spiraling out of control quickly.
Layout: Have you ever walked through a kitchen that just seems to flow? The layout of your kitchen depends on the area you have to work with, and a well planned space can make all the difference in functionality.
Lifestyle: How you want to use your kitchen plays a key role in your remodel. If you love to entertain, then you may want a large island. If you love to cook and try new recipes then maybe you want a large pantry and extra cabinets for all your gadgets.
Aesthetics: Choose from farmhouse, contemporary/modern, french, industrial, cottage or traditional kitchen styles. Not sure of your style, spend time looking through catalogs and the internet to help you get inspired. Start with a simple step like choosing your colours and work from there.
