When you choose to renovate your kitchen a lot of question pops up in your mind. It is a common scenario where you don’t know how to start the process or you are clueless about what to look for. Don’t worry, for I have also faced this problem in some point of my life. But now I have a solution for you. Read this blog carefully to know the 3 most important questions that you should ask yourself before opting for a kitchen renovation. This will surely help you in deciding upon the right thing and ensure a smooth renovation process.
Question 1: How do I pick the best store for kitchen renovation items?
This is the most vital question that you should ask yourself. A kitchen renovation is all about revamping your old kitchen with latest kitchen pieces. So, you must always make sure to get the best items from reputed kitchen stores. To pick the best store start with making a list of shops located in your area. It is also a good idea to search online. But don’t overlook the recommendations of your family, friends, and co-workers because word of mouth is more reliable than anything else. Now that you have got the initial list of good stores selling kitchen renovation items, get in touch with them and check out the quality of the goods displayed in their store. If you prefer customized pieces ask them to show you some reference designs and ideas. Once you are satisfied with the quality of their work ask them for quotations and the timeline by which they can deliver you the cabinets, sinks, countertops etc.
Question 2: How do I fix my budget for a kitchen renovation?
Fixing a budget for kitchen renovation items is quite tricky. Start with the cost of the kitchen cabinets. Studies have shown that they account for almost half of the budget allotted for a kitchen renovation. So, it is important to fix the budget of the cabinets first. Compare the prices provided by your selected kitchen renovation stores and fix the budget accordingly. However, keep in mind that good quality products come with a quality price. So do not opt for cheap cabinets as they compromise in material and durability. Here is a little piece of advice. You can opt for ready-to-assemble or RTA cabinets. As the name suggests these trendy cabinets are ideal for any style or size of the kitchen. They are pocket-friendly and easy to install. Once you have fixed the cost of kitchen cabinets, start fixing the costs for other items like sinks, countertops, shelves etc in the same way. The trick is to allow a budget that will allow you to get quality products with being too heavy on your pocket.
Question 3: How do I choose a theme for my renovated kitchen?
The good news is there are endless options for kitchen themes. Look for something that suits your personal style and preference and obviously the décor of your home. Take ideas from various interior designing book and magazines if possible to create a unique style. If you are in doubt stick to neutral colors and classic designs as they never go out of trend. Avoid outlandish trends unless you are sure that you can live with it or you know how to execute it into a design or else you will end up into renovating your kitchen again.
I hope these three questions will give you some insight about kitchen renovation. Sit down with a piece of paper and write down these questions about how much you want to spend on the process, from where do you want to buy the kitchen renovation items and how would you like to renovate your kitchen. Once you have the answers to these questions, you will be able to pull off a successful kitchen renovation.
