Kitchen remodeling is one of the most complex home remodeling projects. For the novice homeowner, knowing the basics can help make sure that their project stays on track and their sight stays on their goals. In today’s post, local cabinet resurfacing and kitchen remodeling contractor DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Southeast Florida shares a look at the absolute basics of kitchen remodeling.
A Is for Architecture
Like most other kinds of remodeling projects, the kitchen needs good bones to begin with. The first thing you need to think about is making sure that the kitchen is structurally sound. Problems like moisture damage, plumbing issues, and improper wiring need to be addressed before the first tile or cabinet box is installed. The kitchen will also need to meet applicable building codes.
Architecture should also be a reminder to making sure that the kitchen works with the house’s architectural style. Consider how jarring the experience would be if, for example, you enter a contemporary kitchen — all streamlined cabinets and stainless steel appliances — coming from a room with all the trappings of traditional home styles like natural wood finishes. A good kitchen remodeling plan should consider how the kitchen design would flow with the rest of the house.
B Is for Beauty
The kitchen has to have a good balance between functionality and aesthetics. After deciding on the kitchen’s concept, you will now have to make a series of decisions, from appliances and countertops to various types of kitchen lighting. You’ll also need to consider if you want to add a patio door and make your backyard an extension of your kitchen.
C Is for Customization
Even remodeling experts rarely hit the mark with the first version of their remodeling plans, which can change due to factors like material costs or perhaps because some of the chosen elements don’t seem to gel together. Your remodeler can help you customize your remodeling plans, try out alternatives, and ultimately help you make informed decisions.
