Planning a kitchen remodel is exciting, but it’s important not to lose sight of the building blocks that can help ensure its success. In this blog post, VillWell Builders, LLC discusses the four key considerations of kitchen remodeling.
- Budget. One of the worst things that can happen to a remodeling project is running out of funding and leaving it unfinished. This is why it’s important to have a budget plan that you can adhere to. Too many changes to an ongoing remodeling project can throw your budget off-track, so it’s best to stick to the original remodeling plans. Unexpected expenses, such as unplanned repairs, must also be planned for.
- The existing layout. While building a new kitchen from scratch is certainly an option, consider your kitchen’s existing layout. Remodeling is all about change, but there are few things from your existing kitchen that you should consider keeping. Minimal changes to the plumbing layout, for example, can help you save on some of your remodeling costs, as opposed to creating a new plumbing layout from scratch. Keeping the same floor layout may help easing into the new kitchen much easier because you’d already be familiar with the work areas.
- Lighting. A good kitchen lighting plan includes ambient lighting that illuminates the entire kitchen, accent lighting for highlighting certain features, and task lighting for task-specific spots like the prep and cooking areas. Since these components involve factors such as fixture selection and electrical wiring, lighting has to be on the top of your kitchen remodeling priorities.
- Remodeler. It’s never too early to start looking for a remodeling contractor for your project. In fact, working with a design-build remodeler from the beginning can make the process more streamlined. Take the time to check out local remodelers, compare their services and call their references until you find the one that’s perfect for your plans.
