Common Kitchen Remodel & Kitchen Renovation Mistakes to Avoid
#1 – Don’t try to do it all yourself — welcome help from experts!
Even if you’re an expert DIYer, be sure to get expert opinions after you’ve developed your plan to be sure that your plans can actually be realized. Also be sure to price the plan out so that you can complete your kitchen remodel/renovation on time and under budget. Experts can help point out details that you may not notice and will help keep your eye on the big picture, from design to construction and installation.
#2 – Don’t forget about cabinets and storage
Never overlook the need for cabinets and storage solutions. Planning storage details into your plans, such as lazy Susans, drawer dividers and pantry pullouts, can maximize the functionality of your kitchen design. If you discover the need after completing the remodel, it’ll cost much more and may not be possible without major construction. There are many solutions to take advantage of underutilized areas, such as toe-kick storage.
#3 – Consider how the kitchen layout will affect workflow
Make sure the most used and busiest areas of your kitchen were considered when deciding on a kitchen configuration or layout. The “work triangle” of your kitchen – the refrigerator, sink and stove – should be strategically located so that the most common tasks in the kitchen can be completed with efficiency.
#4 – Maximize countertop space
The most common issue people have with their kitchen prior to remodeling is a lack of countertop space. If you need countertop space, don’t compromise on layouts that don’t provide the maximum amount of countertop space in your kitchen. Oftentimes, an island can be included in your plans to alleviate the need for countertop space.
#5 – Protect surrounding rooms and spaces prior to beginning construction
Completing a kitchen remodel often requires potentially messy tasks that produce debris and paint drips, so be sure to cover and protect any areas surrounding your kitchen that may be vulnerable to these messes. Use plastic sheets, spring loaded poles and zippers to keep these spaces safe.
#6 – Keep an eye on your budget during the planning process
Don’t forget about your financial constraints and while planning your kitchen remodel. As a rule of thumb, cabinets usually take up about 33% of kitchen remodel budgets. Allocating about 10% of your budget for unexpected costs is also a good way to ensure your project comes under budget.
#7 – Select appliances at the end of your planning process
Unless a particular appliance is an absolute priority for your remodel, select your kitchen appliances as a final step of your design process. It’s much more difficult to find appliances that fit your cabinet and countertop layout/design than the other way around. Selecting appliances last will provide more versatility and options when it comes to designing the configuration/layout of your kitchen.
#8 – Backsplashes are important – don’t forget about them!
Backsplashes are often a focal point of the kitchen, so don’t treat them as an afterthought while designing the kitchen. Backsplashes offer an opportunity to add a finishing touch to your kitchen’s overall aesthetic. It’s also a good way to add a bit of contrast by using different colors of the same tones used throughout the rest of your kitchen, so play around with different colors to complete a sophisticated kitchen design.
