Where to Start a Kitchen RemodelMarch 28, 2022
If you’re unhappy with the state of your kitchen, don’t feel like you’re resigned to simply dealing with it. Instead, take steps toward your dream kitchen by investing in a remodel! Such an idea can sound daunting, especially when you consider the costs associated with that type of project. But there are ways around money being a factor, whether you finance your remodel, make minor upgrades that can have a wide impact, or simply take care of your project in phases. If you’re a homeowner who is interested in having a kitchen remodel done in stages, this guide from your friends at Kitchen Saver® is sure to help.
The Early Stages of Your Kitchen Remodel
When you’re ready to completely transform the aesthetic and functionality of your kitchen, it’s important that you take a measured approach. If you dive right into the project without putting in thorough planning work, your renovation is doomed to fail, and you could end up spending more money to correct mistakes made due to being overeager.
Early in your kitchen remodel, you’ll need to take care of the intricate parts that would be difficult to handle once your newly updated kitchen is more fleshed out. For example, you’ll want to have your plumbing and electrical work done, as well as any painting and flooring upgrades you have planned. Once those aspects of your kitchen are addressed, the next stage should involve your cabinets.
Why Your Cabinetry Upgrades Should Be Completed Early in the Process
It’s important to address your cabinetry early in the kitchen remodel process because of how integral they are to the aesthetic of the entire space. Consider how much wall space your cabinets occupy. For that reason alone, you should establish the cabinet style, material, color, and finish before you do anything else. Doing so will help you set the tone for the rest of the room’s design. Specifically, you’ll be able to gauge what you need to look for in your new countertops once you have the cabinets in place. It’s much easier to match counters to your cabinets than vice-versa, so if a cabinet replacement or refacing project is part of your plans for a remodel, it should be done before almost anything else.
Taking the Next Step After Investing in Newly Refreshed Kitchen Cabinets
Once you upgrade your kitchen’s cabinetry, you’ll be able to go about designing the rest of the space. That means having new countertops installed that will complement the look of your cabinets, as well as updated appliances that fit the aesthetic of the room. The rest of your project can involve the finer details, which is where you’ll really be able to put your personal stamp on your kitchen and make it feel like home.

From there, we offer other kitchen upgrades, including installations of modern sinks and fixtures, new countertops, under-cabinet lighting, and space-saving storage accessories.
