Kitchens are one of the most complicated and expensive areas of the home to remodel. If you don’t want to spend a fortune or spend more time than you should on your remodeling needs, planning is vital. In addition to this, you must understand what you want as the final outcome. This will streamline the process and help you achieve exactly what you need.

To help you with your planning, Saché Designs: Interior Designs by Julie Corley has put together a Beginner’s Guide to a kitchen remodel. In this guide, I’ve covered the initial steps required to set your remodeling project into action. I’ve even included tips to help you avoid challenges.

Getting Started

Identify your likes and dislikes: Look at your entire kitchen space and list out the different elements that you like and do not like. With the help of this list, you can determine what to keep and what to replace during the remodeling process.

Think about better functionality: When preparing the above list, try to also think about different elements that can be logically introduced for better functionality or to complement what you have. This can be as simple as purchasing new appliances or as complicated as demolishing a specific space to accommodate new installations.

Next Steps

Hire an interior designer: Once you know what you want, talk to an interior designer. Invite them to look at your kitchen and share your ideas and expectations with them. Based on what you currently have and want, they will be able to tell you what works and what doesn’t. They may also give you ideas that you might not have thought of. Hire a professional who is capable of handling the day-to-day and seeing the project complete before it is even started.

Put together a plan: Once you’ve settled on what you want, pull all your thoughts together and plan with your interior designer. They will help you determine what you need to start with, where you need to spend, and how much.

Purchase the materials: Once you have a plan that fits your budget, bring in all the materials you want for the remodeling before starting your demolition. You don’t want to be waiting for a beautiful tile from Italy to clear customs while you have your kitchen totally torn up for weeks.

Advice From The Pros

Make sure there is flow: When planning the remodel, ensure that it allows a proper flow of the function. For example, ensure that appliances like dishwashers, microwaves, and refrigerators are in the right places.

Get the right contractors: The remodel of a kitchen involves almost all the trades necessary to build a complete house. This includes plumbers, builders, electricians, flooring experts, and more. As a result, you want to make sure that you have all the professionals you require. You can either talk to your interior designer for references or family members.

Set deadlines: A plan for the logistics, with a timeline involving all contractors, is a must. This will ensure that your work is executed in a timely manner for each contractor to finish their part as estimated.
