If you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen but you’re not sure where to start, integrate these 5 simple steps to get the kitchen you want at the price you can afford.
Step 1: Evaluate Your Current Kitchen
Before you begin, make a list of what you like and dislike about your kitchen. If you’re going to renovate, it’s important to determine what you want to achieve with your renovation. Consider things like layout, space utilization, functionality…etc.
Step 2: Collect Inspiration
Bypass those spontaneous design choices and “on-a-whim” purchases; instead, collect inspiration images of timeless trends that won’t go out of style. Flick through magazines, scroll the web, or browse different lifestyle blogs, and see what catches your eye. Keep in mind; some design trends are mere fads. Stick to design elements that won’t be out-dated.
Step 3: Build A Budget
When renovating a kitchen, it’s very important to set up a budget. Decide how much you want to spend, and stick to it! Be prepared to review the costs before investing. This may seem like a daunting task, but will save you time and money in the long run.
Step 4: It’s Time To Design!
Do you want a new kitchen that accommodates your family, is highly functional, and reflects your home décor style? We suggest sitting down with a designer to develop a layout before you finalize everything. Make sure your needs are met and the design is exactly what you want before you start to develop.
Step 5: Choose Appliances
Kitchen appliances can make up one of the largest investments in your home. New appliances can create an instant update to any kitchen, thus adding more value to your home. Before making any decisions, start by doing a little homework. What do you like and dislike about your current appliances? Is your existing appliance always smudged with fingerprints? Frigidaire Gallery® offers Smudge-Proof™ Stainless Steel that resists fingerprints and is easy to clean!
Your kitchen will go through many different steps throughout the remodel. By following these steps you’ll get the perfect kitchen that’s right for you and your family.
