Guide to Redesigning Your Kitchen

So, you’ve decided to redesign your kitchen. That’s a step in the right direction, as a kitchen redesign really does add value to your home. Now, kitchen design means different things to different people. To some, it means adding new appliances to the kitchen. To others, it means adding more space to the kitchen, or upgrading the existing kitchen space. Kitchen redesign requires a lot of thought and you should get started with it only after having done your research. Meanwhile, read this guide to redesigning your kitchen.

Know Your Priorities – What Do You Want from the Kitchen Redesign?

So, what do you really want from the kitchen redesign? What are your main priorities? How are you going to use the kitchen? How many people will be using it? Will the kitchen have a plenty of traffic? Do you plan to invite guests to your kitchen?  How will you move around in the kitchen? There are just so many questions that you’ll need to consider.

Identify Your Style

What’s your style? Do you want the kitchen to be modern, traditional or classic? Would you like a more personal style? Do you want a natural wood kitchen, or do you want the kitchen to be painted in a particular color that you love? Before doing anything, decide on the style of the kitchen.

Look for Ideas

The next step is to look for ideas. Do your research, get ideas from as many sources as possible – magazines, websites, books, TV shows, etc. Visit kitchen showrooms. Look for pictures of kitchens on the internet that have the features that you want to add to your own kitchen. Learn about the process of kitchen renovation and design.

Decide on a Budget

How much do you really want to spend on the kitchen renovation? You shouldn’t spend more than you should. Decide on the scope of the redesign – how far do you want to do with it?  What can you really afford? Consult with a professional and ask for their help on setting a budget for the kitchen redesign.

Hire the Right Professionals for the Kitchen Redesign

There are so many people involved in the kitchen redesign project. You will need to hire an architect or a designer first. Then, once you have a plan with you, it’s time to look for the right contractor. Hiring a contractor for the kitchen redesign solves so many problems. The contractor takes care of everything from getting a permit for the project, helps you prepare a budget, does the shopping for you, choose the best finishes and fixtures for the kitchen, sets up a temporary kitchen while he carries out work on the kitchen design and manages the entire project from start to finish.

Plan the Kitchen Redesign

Talk to your contractor about how the kitchen will look like, based on the plans given by the architect or designer. This is the time to plan your space and decide on the layout.  You will need to decide on the materials to be bought and from where. Next, send out drawings to the various providers of kitchen fixtures and finishes to get an estimate of their costs.

Add Fixtures and Appliances to the Kitchen

You will need to buy fixtures and appliance for the kitchen. This includes ordering countertop material, kitchen cabinets of the right type, finish and color, kitchen sink and faucet, flooring, light fixtures, decorative fixtures, backsplash, refrigerator, etc.
