Kitchen remodeling is an intense, expensive, and involved process that is so worth it in the end when you finally set foot in your dream kitchen. However, with so much going on, it is easy to take some wrong turns. These can add stress, costs, and time onto remodeling that you just don’t need. Read on for some common kitchen remodeling mistakes, so you can avoid them.
Letting The ‘Small Stuff’ Go
With so many big decisions to make, it can be easy to get fatigued and let some small details fall to the wayside. It is key to stay your course and treat every future nook and cranny of your kitchen with love, from the smallest add-ons and storage features to the biggest and most expensive appliances.
Forgetting The Workflow
While in a sea of shiny appliances and colorful floor and counter options during remodeling, it can be easy to forget that function is the priority, especially in a kitchen. Make sure all of your appliances are in locations that are relevant to one another and your own personal use. Remember that the sink, stove, and fridge are the busiest areas of any kitchen.
Sacrificing Counter Space
Counter space is arguably the most important element of your kitchen, so don’t settle for less. Especially if you have a large family or enjoy entertaining, a kitchen with room for everyone to cook is key. You can extend counter space by using decorative corbels or shelving support for added room.
Going Full DIY
DIY is all the rage right now, but it’s not always best to undertake large complex projects yourself if you are not an expert. For one, putting together your kitchen yourself in your spare time may take months and months, even if you get it right the first time. And if you don’t, you will have to invest money into your DIY attempt and then pay somebody to possibly undo or fix all of it. Getting an expert opinion, guidance, or even hands from the start is key.
