The kitchen is a staple of the modern household. It's where you start your day with coffee and breakfast. It's where you eat your lunch before you head back to work. It's where you prepare a feast for your friends those classic San Diego nights they all come over. An efficient kitchen is essential to a free flowing and comfortable life, so what happens when your kitchen falls short of your needs? You could move, but most often, all you need is a kitchen remodel. When your kitchen no longer works for you, our contractors will work for you instead, to create the kitchen of your dreams. So here's a short list from your friends at Divine Remodeling to help you get the most out of your kitchen renovation.
DO: Have a plan in place.
In the world of home remodeling, you will find the best outcome if you provide a concise plan to those working on your house. The purpose of the plan is to provide a guidebook of sorts for our contractors as to your vision for a given project. This includes knowing details such as what your kitchen currently lacks, the arrangement of appliances and cabinetry, central and mood lighting, and other factors like paint color. Having a plan in place lets you rest easy knowing that our contractors are aware of your vision for you kitchen.
DON’T: Blow things out of proportion.
In any remodeling project, there's the chance things get blown out of proportion. With the stress of planning, ordering and building a remodel, it's easy to let things get out of hand. Though some anxious thoughts are normal when having work done on your house, there's a point at which it can become too much and actually end up impeding the work being done. To avoid this, keep in mind that our contractors are called professionals for a reason. When working on your property, our biggest concern is the well being of you and your household. As a customer, you get the satisfaction of a brand new kitchen without the hassle of having to do it yourself, so sit back, relax, and before you know it everything will be in its right place.
DO: Have an idea of your ideal kitchen.
You would not be reading this if you didn't know what you wanted out of your kitchen. Maybe you've always wanted a breakfast nook. Perhaps the layout of your kitchen is not as efficient as it could be. Even just a new coat of paint can be a part of your vision, and as the customer, you have the luxury of choosing every detail imaginable. The kitchen remodeling process is the moment at which your ideas become your reality. Always wanted an island? Need more counter space? All these things can be yours when you bring your ideas to the table.
DON’T: Dream too big.
When considering remodeling your kitchen, it's important to remain realistic about what you can expect. The fear of contractors everywhere is an unhappy customer, and aside from mistakes made on the job or miscommunications about the work being done, the biggest source of unhappiness comes from failed expectations. A new face to your kitchen is an investment in your future so it's imperative that you remain practical when it comes to what you want out of your project.
DO: Have a budget.
Unless it’s not an issue, having a budget is one of the best ways to ensure you get what you want without breaking the bank. With a budget, you won’t have to worry about biting off more than you can chew. A budget decides the scale of the renovation, and though it’s easy to splurge, realistic results come from realistic budgets. If you have concerns about cost, our designers and contractors will do everything they can to complete any undertaking within the parameters of your budget. When budgeting, don’t forget to accommodate the possibility of damage and additional expenses.
DON’T: Be afraid to get the most out of your kitchen renovation.
Remodeling your kitchen presents you with a clean slate in a space you use everyday. No matter the reason for your renovation, there is always more potential to explore with a space so crucial to daily life. So when it comes to re-doing your kitchen, be it updating or a complete refacing, don’t be afraid to get what you want. With the right combination of research, cooperation with designers and contractors, and patience, you can have the kitchen of your dreams and eat in it too.
