Like most home remodeling projects, a kitchen makeover requires extensive planning to ensure its success. To help you with this, we’ve compiled a checklist that will serve as your guide to achieving the kitchen you’ve always wanted.
You need to have a budget prepared to tackle your kitchen remodeling project. Never skimp on it – the last thing you want is to end up with a space that doesn’t meet your expectations. To get an idea of how much the project will cost you on average, obtain and compare quotes from remodeling contractors.
A timeline is necessary to determine how much time will be needed to complete your kitchen renovation. It also serves as a guide on whether the job was done quickly or if it took longer than expected. Barring unexpected delays, a typical timeline of a kitchen remodel is between six to eight weeks. It may, however, depend on the extent of the project – minor changes like countertop and flooring replacement can take a shorter amount of time to finish.
Buying and Ordering Materials
Never purchase anything without first knowing what you want you to get out of your kitchen. You’ll want to make every dollar count, so make sure to plan this carefully. Create a list of the things you want to add, remove or change in your current space. Get kitchen design inspiration from Pinterest or home improvement magazines. Turn to your kitchen remodeler if you need to create a new layout.
Set up a makeshift kitchen somewhere in your home that will serve as a temporary cooking area while the remodel is underway. Empty the contents of the kitchen space, making sure to clean everything before the remodeling team arrives. Check with your contractor the expected delivery dates of the materials you ordered.
Installation and Final Check
Communicate with your remodeler any concerns you might have during the installation process. Ensure that all of the elements, from the cabinets and appliances to the sink and countertops, are a perfect fit and according to the design specifications. Add a bit of decoration once everything is complete.
