A Kitchen Remodeling Checklist


Kitchen Remodeling ChecklistAny home remodeling project will be stressful, although it will likely be simultaneously exciting. The best thing you can do to ensure everything goes smooth is be as prepared as possible. You'll want to make a lot of big decisions before you even begin tearing down the old walls to build your brand new dream kitchen. Use this kitchen remodeling checklist to make sure you're prepared for all the excitement of home remodeling.



Decide on Your Budget (and stick with it)

Probably the most important decision when it comes to any home remodeling project is deciding how much money you have to spend on it. Since kitchens are often the center of a home and a place where people will gather, and a good remodel can add lots of value, homeowners generally spend 10-15 percent of the home's value on a kitchen remodeling project. Knowing your budget will help you decide on the materials and other things necessary for the remodel. Try to allow for a cushion for unexpected overages.

Layout & Style

Before you decide on a single color figure out the floorplan. Figure out where you want the sink, the fridge, the stove and if there will be an island or pantry. Then think about if you want a modern kitchen, an open floor plan or another style. A professional kitchen remodeling team can help you with layout and design, so that everything flows together nicely.

Appliances

One of the main reasons many people update their kitchens is because they want a new set of appliances, and oh boy are there plenty of styles to choose from. Stainless steel, black, white and wood paneled appliances that match your cabinets are all popular options.

Cabinets and Countertops

The cabinets and counters in your new kitchen are going to be a focal point for yourself along with many guests. Since you've already selected a style of kitchen that you want to attain it will be easy to pick out wood hues, and countertop material. Of course many materials come in a variety of colors, such as granite and marble, so you'll still have plenty to select from.

Flooring

Flooring for your new kitchen is one of the most important aspects. It is going to tie the room together and take a beating at the same time. Natural stone tile is a popular choice for many kitchens, but it doesn't go with every style. Hardwood is great, but can scratch and dent more easily than other types.
