How to Plan a Successful Kitchen Remodel

Friedmans Showroom

After deciding to remodel the kitchen, many homeowners struggle with where to start. Some homeowners start by looking at new appliances, while others get inspiration from new cabinets and countertops. Wherever you choose to start, these following tips will help you once you’ve decided to remodel your kitchen.

Think About the Kitchen Layout
This should be your first step after green-lighting a kitchen remodeling project. Think about how you want to move around in your kitchen, including where you’ll prep, cook, and eat. Can you work with your existing kitchen footprint, or do you need to make an addition? This step will help guide you through the entirety of your kitchen remodeling project.

Organize Your Ideas
You’ve probably bookmarked dozens of websites or dog-eared hundreds of magazine pages that feature photos of kitchens you love. To help focus your creativity and inspiration, try to organize your ideas as best you can. If you prefer to daydream on your computer, make a new folder and save inspiring photos with a brief description of what you admire most about them. If you have dozens of kitchen design magazines lying around the house, cut out the pictures you love most and organize them in a folder or idea book.

Look for New Appliances
Even if you don’t have the exact schematics of your new kitchen completed, you should take every opportunity to get to browse for new kitchen appliances. You will be amazed with how much inspiration you can get from looking at a new oven or refrigerator. Knowing which appliances you want can also help you pick out the right cabinets, countertops, and flooring that will complement the style and color of your new appliances once they are installed in your dream kitchen.
