Before start your remodel, think about you and your kitchen… Ask yourself how you envision yourself in your new kitchen. Do you and your husband enjoy cooking together? Then you’d better plan compatible workspaces. Do you entertain a lot and need space near the work area for lingering and chatting? Then a multi-functional center island is a must.
Now if you are remodeling, why not have some cool new products? For example a drink drawers that are the latest trend in refrigeration and are a nice addition for younger children so they can reach for drinks without any help from parents. Most drink drawers are refrigerator/freezer combinations, which is handy.
Be sure that you are hiring the right team of professionals. People often think that doing it yourself is the cheapest route. Not so! Varying aspects of the kitchen require professionals with specific expertise. A kitchen designer is not an architect, an architect is not an interior designer, and a contractor is not a kitchen designer.
Although it’s tempting to delegate all decisions to the experts, ultimately it’s the homeowners who best understand their own habits. So make sure to explain all your need to the expert that is working with you, and be there to any decision that need to be make.
The average kitchen renovation should last 12-15 years, so the last thing you want is for it to feel dated before it’s even paid for. Beware of too-trendy colors and shapes that likely have a short shelf life.
Even if you can’t afford a total remodel, it is possible to “refresh” your kitchen with small improvements. The key is to identify the shortcomings and find solutions.
