When you are preparing for a kitchen remodel, it’s easy to get swept up in the excitement of planning out your new wall colors, choosing the perfect countertops, and getting new fixtures. While all of those are important parts of the planning process, first you should work out answers to the following questions.
What is Your Budget?
This is the single most important question you need to answer before starting your kitchen remodel. The average kitchen remodel runs upwards of $15,000, so planning a concrete budget out in advance is crucial to ensuring you can get what you want. If you are planning on getting new appliances, fancy custom cabinets, or costly square footage of new countertops, expect to pay much more than $15,000 for your kitchen remodel.
What Do I Like About Other Kitchens?
The reason that you are doing your kitchen remodel is important, so think of what exactly you want that you don’t have. Designing your perfect kitchen means knowing what you need to get there, so browse Pinterest and magazines to see what you like. Whether it’s extra counter space or a breakfast bar, think of what exactly you need before you sign on the dotted line.
How Long Can I Live Without a Kitchen?
The less romantic part of a kitchen remodel is having a kitchen you can’t use for however long it takes to complete the remodel. Depending on the severity of the remodel, you might even need to take a couple days out of your home while the dust, literally, settles. Moving out temporarily can give you the added benefit of a project that is finished much faster, as your contractors can put in extra hours whenever they’d like without worrying about keeping (or waking) you up. It’s important to work out a deal with your contractor that will give them the freedom to work as much as needed and you access to your home during the process.
