Remodelling your kitchen can be an exciting process, but it’s also quite the commitment in the way that any changes you make are fairly permanent and showcased for anyone to see the second they walk into the kitchen. That’s why it’s important to plan everything beforehand. Here are four decisions you’ll need to make for kitchen remodelling.
- How much are you willing to spend? Kitchen remodelling isn’t the cheapest task ever, but it doesn’t have to hurt your finances if you plan your budget carefully. You’ll need to decide on an exact amount you’re willing to spend, how much you’re willing to allocate to each part of the remodelling project, and which parts of the kitchen you can keep the same to save money.
- How do you want your appliances? If you’re planning to upgrade your appliances or moving them around, it’s better to decide what you want and where you want them before moving on to the cabinetry. That way, the cabinetry can be measured and built around your appliances and not the other way around.
- How will you use the space? Another decision to consider is how you’ll use the space and how you want things to flow. If you’re going to have multiple people working in the kitchen at a time or plan to prepare larger meals, you’ll want a bigger workspace. If you want easy access to your kitchenware from the stove, you’ll want the space to be organized with cabinets and drawers placed close by.
- How much storage space do you need? One of the worst uses for countertops is piling food and kitchenware on them just because you have nowhere else to store those things. Deciding how much storage space you’ll need in your kitchen before kitchen remodelling will allow you to have sufficient space to store food, kitchen gadgets, and more inside your cabinets, drawers, and pantry. That way, you can have all the counter space you need for cooking.
The most important thing you can do for kitchen remodelling is to enjoy it rather than get overwhelmed with all the decisions and planning. Here at McMillan Millwork & Joinery, we’re happy to help you make all the difficult decisions based on your vision and needs.
