Steps for a Successful Kitchen Remodel
Your kitchen should accommodate your lifestyle. Providing you with your cooking needs and preferred space to cook and dine in, if you opt for a combo kitchen/dining room. Decoration would complement the architecture of your home and set the perfect ambiance for parties and family gatherings. Before you start your remodel with KBF Design Gallery, you should have an idea of what you want, and if it makes sense for your specific needs.
2. Setting Your Budget (And Sticking To It!):
The most important key to sticking to your remodeling budget is step one – planning! When a KBF designer comes to your home for the initial, free consultation, we will ask you about your wants and needs for your kitchen. After learning about the changes you would like to make, we can give you a ballpark figure range for the total cost of your remodel. If you decide to hire KBF to design and remodel your kitchen, the contract price will not change unless you decide to make changes to the original contract, or if there are some unforeseen problems beyond KBF’s ability to know at contract signing (such as problems with plumbing or structural problems hidden behind walls).
3. Know Your Layout:
Beyond the basics — providing a place to store, cook and eat food — every kitchen is different. Kitchens serve as the new social gathering spot and the hubs of today’s homes. Depending on how you use your space, you will have different needs for your kitchen. Our designers can help you get the most of your existing kitchen layout, or help you plan for something completely new!
4. Choosing Appropriate Materials:
If you have a design in your head, but are not sure exactly what materials and finishes you should incorporate to obtain this vision, we can help! Do you want a more modern design with metal appliances? What cabinet door style do you prefer? What type of hardware defines the look you are going for? What style sink and faucet suits your design? Our designers can choose materials that will fit well together as a whole to create a cohesive, timeless look.
Don’t just choose any cabinets or storage organizers—choose the right ones! Every square inch of your kitchen matters. One of the primary goals in a kitchen remodeling project is optimizing your storage space with a brilliant layout that will last for years to come. When it comes to space, think about what really frustrates you in your kitchen now. Write those frustrations down, and then we can optimize the best storage plan for you.
6. Hiring Professionals:
Even if you abide by every other step listed here, you could have a disaster of a remodel if you do not hire the right Orlando kitchen remodeling company. Always take a look a company’s past remodeling jobs and reviews to get a feel for the kind of work they do. Don’t be afraid to speak up! Your project is about YOU, so if you don’t like an idea suggested by a “remodeling professional” tell them so. Find a remodeling company who will work with you to fulfill your needs. The relationship between you and your designer is as important as the design itself.
