3 Things to Consider When Remodeling Your Kitchen
Updated: Apr 11, 2021
The kitchen is the heart of the home and is the most popular room to be remodeled! Planning for a kitchen remodel can be a strenuous task. To help take some ease off you and make sure you are prepared for this project, we’ve highlighted three essential elements to consider before remodeling. We want the process of transforming your kitchen into the kitchen of your dreams to be hassle-free!
The kitchen is the most important room of the space, and living without it can be tricky. While your kitchen is undergoing a makeover, you’ll need a space where you can still eat and cook. Before you begin remodeling, pick a space that will act as your kitchen during the remodeling process. This may be the dining room, office, or even the garage. Move your appliances such as the refrigerator, microwave, toaster, etc., into another space, so you can still use them. Don’t forget your coffee makers and Keurig's too! Larger items like the fridge may need to go in the garage. You can also take advantage of your outdoor grill or any crockpots to continue cooking your meals without getting in the way of the remodel. If your dishwasher or sink is off-limits throughout the remodel, you may have to wash dishes in the bathroom. To save you the hassle of washing all of your dishes in the bathroom sink or tub, go ahead and use paper plates and plastic utensils.
When it comes to how we utilize our kitchen, everyone is different. For some of us, it’s our room we entertain and host guests, while for others, it’s where we show off our master chef skills. No matter what purpose your kitchen serves in your house, it’s crucial to consider how you and your family will be using your new kitchen. This will affect the layout of the space. If you plan on hosting dinner parties and frequently having guests over, you’ll want an open space that is easy to move around and can fit many people. For those who use their kitchen as their baking or cooking sanctuary, you’ll need to consider things such as how many ovens you’ll need, what type of stove or cooktop will be best, and what countertops and backsplashes can handle messes. Imagine your kitchen needs before you begin embarking on a remodel so that space will work best for you.
So many aspects come into consideration when remodeling a kitchen. Appliances, cabinetry, and countertops are just a few of the features that can get a makeover during a remodel. While all of these are important to the kitchen's function and style, one of the most crucial components of the kitchen is storage. The kitchen is almost like a giant closet. Many elements of our home are stored in the kitchen, so while you want an aesthetically pleasing kitchen, you also need one that has ample storage space. This means cabinets, shelves, drawers, and even the pantry should be properly thought out before the remodel begins. Think about all of the things you plan on storing in your kitchen and plan accordingly.
While remodeling your kitchen has the potential to be a laborious project, the results are worth it! Everyone deserves to have a kitchen they are proud of.
