Kitchen Remodel Mistakes to Avoid
There are many people looking to get some kitchen remodeling done in the coming year. While most of them will successfully create the kitchen remodel of their dreams, others may fall short. There are many costly mistakes people make while kitchen remodeling that can cost a lot of time and money. It is important to know the problems people face while doing a kitchen remodel to ensure your next project goes exactly as planned.
The Main Kitchen Remodel Mistakes
A lot of work goes into a kitchen remodel, which means a lot of problems can occur throughout the process. Some of the most common remodel mistakes seem obvious at first, but being aware of them is going to really help you on your kitchen remodeling journey.
It’s Pretty, but is it Functional?
Surprisingly enough one of the most common kitchen remodel mistakes is focusing too heavily on looks. You could have designed and built the most beautiful kitchen you have ever seen only to find out that you can’t open your dishwasher and cabinets at the same time, or the fridge is on the opposite side of the kitchen from where you prepare food. A lot of times homeowners forget to think of these small things only to end up disliking their kitchen design, not because it looks bad, but because it creates much more work than necessary. While having a great looking kitchen is always a plus, it is at the end of the day a workspace.
When doing a kitchen remodel it is very important to make a list of things you will have to have done by the end of the remodel. More often than not, homeowners will forget a crucial aspect of design, and by the time they realize it is too late. How many outlets do you have, how much counter space, cabinet space, does the style match the connecting rooms, do you have proper lighting, etc. When remodeling your kitchen make sure you have all of these things figured out before you get too far in. Know what appliances you want, and how the kitchen is going to fit with the rest of the house. Make sure the kitchen makes your daily life easier, and know that the things that you personally find important may not be the same things your designer finds important. Make your preferences known, so that you can ensure your kitchen remodel, makes things easier, and feels good, not just one or the other.
One Color Overload
Having all stainless steel appliances sounds great, and you had them picked out the whole time, and they work so well. True, but when you walk into a kitchen and half the room is chrome, it isn’t that appealing to the eye. Make sure when picking colors and styles, you think about everything in your kitchen, not just the walls and cabinets. Have some diversity of colors and styles, to find a good mix. Know how your appliances are going to fit and look like in your kitchen.
