The Dos & Don’ts of Kitchen Remodeling

Kitchen remodel with brown tile flooring, wood-grain cabinets, and gray countertops.When thinking about a kitchen remodel, you need to have a firm idea of what you’re trying to do. Your aesthetic goals, functional goals, added value, added space, and even the mood and image your kitchen conveys should all be part of the process. While navigating all those details, it’s normal to realize you’re not sure where to start or how to proceed.

To help you make the most of your kitchen remodel, we’ve put together a brief list of dos and don’ts — the little things you should keep in mind as you go through this process.

The Dos of Kitchen Remodeling

Making the most of the spaces in your home means keeping in mind all the ways your home will be affected by changes, immediately and in the long term.

Work With Our Design Team

Getting the best results from your kitchen remodel means understanding the possibilities and limitations of the process, which is easiest if you’re speaking with a member of our design team. If you develop your idea too far without input from a professional, you can end up far down a line of thought that’s going to be impossible or too expensive. You might also miss out on possibilities you’re unaware of.

Keep Function, Form & Value in Mind

Everyone loves a great kitchen, which is why it’s a great way to add value to your home. Be sure you don’t forget any aspect of how your kitchen will exist in your home. You want a kitchen that looks how you want it to look, does what you need it to do, and — if home value and resale are a consideration — won’t develop costly problems or make your home unappealing to future buyers.

Get Excited About the Boring Parts

There are many inherently exciting changes to be made with your kitchen, like all new cabinetry, adding that bar or island you always wanted, renewing a backsplash, or changing up your floors. You’ll be far happier in the long run if you also remember the little things.

Update your windows to keep the kitchen energy-efficient and comfortable, renew out-of-sight appliances like garbage disposals, and make your pantry a little easier to access and use regularly.

The Don’ts of Kitchen Remodeling

Leave Yourself With Zero Leeway

Pushing any remodeling project to the absolute limits of your time tolerances and resources is an excellent way to end up in trouble. Savvy homeowners will make arrangements for unexpected events or last-minute changes to get what they want without having to cut corners or endure a lot of stress.

Overstuff Your Kitchen

Remodeling your kitchen allows you to add every appliance, tool, workspace, and dining area you’ve ever dreamed of — but that’s also a great way to end up with a kitchen that feels cramped and frustrating to live in. Think about who will use your kitchen, how they will use it, the little frustrations of space and placement that already bother you, then make your kitchen the solution to all of it.
