Remodeling any part of your home is a big undertaking, but kitchen remodelling is the most complicated of all. The kitchen is the main hub of your home, where you and your loved ones gather to eat and enjoy one another’s company, so it’s important to get your remodel done right. Our team at McMillan Millwork & Joinery has 20 years of experience in the industry, and we want to help you make your remodelling project as successful as possible. In this article, we’ll be going over three common kitchen remodelling mistakes and how to avoid them.
- Choosing Cabinets Before Appliances- One serious mistake when it comes to kitchen remodelling is choosing your cabinets before you choose your appliances. It’s much easier to fit your cabinets around your appliances than it is to find refrigerators and ovens that fit properly into the gaps left in your cabinet setup.
- Not Considering Workflow- Another mistake that we at McMillan Millwork & Joinery have seen in kitchen remodelling is failing to consider the workflow. Preparing food involves multiple steps that need to happen in a specific order–from taking out ingredients, to peeling and chopping, to cooking and serving–and it’s important to design your space to make this process as easy and logical as possible. Fortunately, you can turn to our experts for help in creating a kitchen that’s easy to work in.
- Not Including Enough Storage- A third kitchen remodelling mistake that we have seen is not including enough storage space. You may have the latest appliances and gadgets to cook with, but that won’t help if there’s no room left in your kitchen for the actual food. Our team at McMillan Millwork & Joinery has extensive experience in cabinet and pantry design, and we will help you make the most effective use of all of your available space to ensure that you have room for all the ingredients and tools you need.
