Kitchen remodelling is not something that you would do every now and then to change the appearance of your kitchen. It involves a lot of money. However, many homeowners are excited to get their kitchens remodelled to get rid of the old ones. What is the fun of making a substantial financial commitment when the outcome is not desirable?
I have seen people disappointed with even the luxurious kitchens, offering zero functionality. You might be thinking, how can it be possible when you have invested thousands of dollars and have a delightful place? It is possible! The reason behind their disenchantment is the entire focus is shifted towards beautifying the kitchen, rather than improving the modularity and making it minimalistic.
Besides, people tend to commit inevitable mistakes during kitchen renovations that could be avoided by forging their trust in kitchen remodelling professionals. Let me help you understand some of the most common kitchen remodelling blunders-
Not planning the budget- Before you get involved in the renovation project and hire a kitchen renovating contractor, decide a budget which most people do not consider. Although everyone loves a lavish kitchen, yet it could be out of reach to get everything extravagant. So, plan accordingly with a checklist of things that you can incorporate in your kitchen, keeping the limits of the decided budget. However, you can go slightly over the budget so save the extra dollars in your pocket.
Planning a Cluttery layout- The space in your kitchen must be fully utilized, but that doesn’t mean you should add everything in one place. Most people create the wrong kitchen layout by placing the sink, cooking area and storage area near to each other, which hampers the workflow. The best way to avoid chaos in the kitchen is by keeping these three busy workstations away from each other so that at least two persons can use the kitchen simultaneously.
Being niggardly with storage space- When it comes to remodelling your kitchen, storage space is a must. It must be integrated in a way that it gives your kitchen a modular look instead of a packed one. However, your kitchen storage depends entirely on the type of appliances you use and other kitchen items. In general, your kitchen storage must include custom-cabinetry, countertops, wooden shelves, pantry and anything else you wish for.
Considering the appliances last- If you intend to purchase new appliances, don’t put them at last in your list since they must fit perfectly in your kitchen storage space. So, once you renovate your kitchen, add all the varying features; otherwise, it will be hard for you to assimilate the appliances that you had purchased at last.
Neglecting the repairing part- The most common mistake is not considering the repairing part. There could be damaged and leaky pipes that can affect the newly renovated walls and cabinets. Besides, the ventilation can have a huge impact on the kitchen’s environment; therefore, upgrade it too.
Adding too much glamour- Many people skip the details and focus on decorating their kitchen by adding extravagant lights and decor. The main aim of restoring your kitchen is to make a comfortable and functional space where you can cook your meals. Therefore, keep functionality your priority.
