Completing a Kitchen Remodel

You may have been in your house for a while. When you bought it, you were younger, and you weren’t doing a whole lot of cooking. Now, you are married, you have a family, and you have found that you really enjoy cooking. While you have grown as a person, your kitchen hasn’t. In fact, it looks the same as the day you bought it. It may be time to think about home kitchen remodeling.

Kitchen RemodelIf you are thinking about remodeling your kitchen, you may have a lot of questions. What is the process for remodeling a kitchen? Is there such a thing as remodeling your kitchen on a budget? What is the process for undergoing a kitchen remodel? We have some answers for you.

The First Step: The Initial Assessment

Before you even think about hiring a remodeling company, take a good look at your kitchen. We mean a really good look. Begin in one corner of the kitchen. Look at your fixtures. Are they outdated and need replacing? Take a look at your cabinets and walls–do they need repainting or replacing? Perhaps the tile on your floor needs updating. What about your appliances? Do they also need to be updated? Think about your workflow in your kitchen. Does it need to be changed to make cooking and entertaining easier for you? Don’t try to think of everything at once. Instead, think about how you want your kitchen changed over time. You also may want to get feedback from your family and friends, so that you can get a truly accurate view of how you want your kitchen to change.

Step Two: Figure Out Your Budget

Once you have a list of great ideas for your kitchen remodel, you will need to sit down and figure out how much you can spend on your remodel. Once you have thought about your budget, you need to begin to meet with a contractor. Tell him or her about your dreams, and then allow them to work up a budget for you.

Step Three: Get Bids and Pick a Contractor

Once you have a budget, and a rough idea of what you want, you will then want to get bids from several contractors. Check their references and ask all the questions you want to ask. Ask your friends and family for referrals as well. Then pick your contractor and prepare to undergo the remodeling process. Before you know it, you will be sitting, entertaining and cooking in your brand-new remodeled kitchen.
