A Quick Guide to Kitchen Renovations

Kitchen renovation tips

A kitchen renovation is one of the most popular home renovations. However, like any renovation, it’s a big job in terms of cost and project scale. Because of this, many homeowners don’t know where to begin.

Set Your Budget

Before you start any project, set a budget. Most projects take up more time and money than you bargained for, so it’s a good idea to aim high in case your project goes over budget. Most contractors recommend adding 10% to 20% to your budget for unplanned expenses. Remember to also factor in labour costs, materials, and taxes for your project. 

Research Everything

Never begin kitchen renovations without researching every aspect. Visit stores and showrooms to shop around for the best deal and items so you can determine what you want and what you can afford. 

Quality is Key

Quality is always essential, but always opt for affordable quality. When it comes to your kitchen renovations, you want to purchase high-quality, functional items that will enhance you and your family’s life. High-quality products (such as cabinets, countertops, and appliances) will last longer and save you money in the long run. Also, think about trying new materials and finding higher-end used items to bring your kitchen reno up a notch.

Needs vs. Wants 

When you are shopping around, make sure you have a clear idea of what is a need and what is a want. It can be tempting to buy all the latest gadgets for your kitchen, but you should go with tried and true products that you know will last and you will use. 

Planning a Kitchen Layout 

Spend time planning a space that is practical and functional. Think about your current kitchen and what works and does not work in terms of the layout. 

Consider what you have always wanted to change and what is practical for your family.
