Things to Avoid When Remodeling Your Kitchen

August 2, 2021

Remodeling a kitchen requires a lot of effort. Since it requires a lot of effort, and often a lot of money, you’ll want to make sure you’re doing everything you can to make the process go as smoothly as possible. No matter if you’re doing a small, simple DIY kitchen remodeling project, or an extensive professional kitchen remodeling project, there are things you can do to avoid stress, disappointment, and additional expenses.

Doing it Alone

No matter how experienced you are as a DIY remodeler, it’s always best to consult with a professional kitchen remodeler before starting your project. A professional will be able to look over your kitchen design, fine-tune your plans, and offer suggestions that you may not have thought of. That way, once you begin your kitchen remodeling project, you’ll know that your plans are the best they can be.


Overlooking Storage Details

When it comes to storage, more is better. Don’t skip seemingly small add-ons and storage features. You can add additional storage to your kitchen by incorporating drawer dividers or cabinet features like pantry pullouts and lazy susans. These storage devices will keep your new kitchen looking clean and neat. 


Not Accounting for Your Workflow

Think about how you move around your current kitchen. Where do you currently prepare food? Where do you usually store your essential kitchen items? Before starting your kitchen remodel, think about how you can make your kitchen workflow more efficient. Keep in mind that the busiest areas are the sink, stove, and refrigerator. 


Choosing Appliances that Don’t Last

It can be tempting to compromise on your appliances to keep the cost of your kitchen remodel low. However, compromising on your appliances can cost you more money in the long run. When you invest in quality appliances, you’re ensuring that they last for many years to come. Additionally, don’t wait till the last minute to choose your appliances. It’s much easier to choose appliances that fit your overall kitchen aesthetic and budget. 


Making Aisles Too Tight

When remodeling your kitchen, make sure that you leave enough aisle space to move about freely. Clearance between aisled will help multiple cooks navigate the space and maneuver around each other. Even if you prefer to cook alone, having a wide aisled will give you enough space to do the things you need to do. Budget between 42 and 48 inches between your aisles and islands, walls, and appliances.
