4 Things to Consider when Planning a Kitchen Renovation

A kitchen is a place where family and friends gather to cook, eat, drink coffee or tea. It's also the heart of your home. That's why when it comes time for a renovation, you want to make sure that you're not only investing in new cabinets but also in what really matters: your lifestyle. So here are some things to consider before embarking on this big project!

#1 The layout of the kitchen


The first thing to consider when planning a kitchen renovation is the layout of your current space. You'll want to make sure that it suits what you're looking for in terms of function and design. If you have an older home, chances are there will be rooms inside your existing space that don't suit the new look or feel that you want (e.g., if you end up removing walls). Make sure everything flows together aesthetically! Along with the new layout, be sure to consider how the changes will affect the plumbing as well - rather have local emergency plumbers on standby if anything needs changing or rerouting!

#2 Appliances


Some appliances will be outdated and need to go. Others may not fit into your new design or space. You'll want to make sure that the equipment you're moving over is still functional and up-to-date. Also, consider appliances that you might want to add, such as a dishwasher. This is often one of the first things to be put off in a renovation. Don't forget about it! Keeping all these factors in mind can help guide you towards creating a more efficient and easily manageable design plan.

#3 Cabinets and countertop options


When it comes to cabinets and countertops, there are a number of options. First, you'll want to consider your budget. There are an array of options when it comes to budget, so it's important that you find the best one for your dollar. You'll also want to consider how much time and effort you're willing to put into the installation (e.g., if you hire a contractor).


You can invest in custom cabinets or go with stock; there are pros and cons of both. Custom cabinets will be higher-quality materials, but they cost more money upfront. Stock cabinets may need replacement down the road since they aren't made from high-quality material, but this depends on where you purchase them from (and what type of wood is used) - keep an eye out for red flags like particle boards! 


The same goes for countertops: solid surfaces such as quartz might be pricier, but they'll last longer than cheaper materials. If you're looking for something more affordable, consider laminate or tile instead - just be sure to get samples before purchasing!

#4 Storage


Storage is another important factor to consider. Are you looking for more cabinets and drawers? Will your renovation include a pantry to store dry goods and other essentials? It's also worth considering the number of people living in your home, as well as how often they cook (e.g., if it's just one or two people who eat out regularly, adding additional storage might not be necessary).


As mentioned above, there are many things to take into consideration when planning a kitchen renovation! But by keeping these four key factors in mind during this process, you'll find that upgrading your space will help create an even better lifestyle for years down the road.
