Preplanning Your Kitchen Design Saves Time and Money

Kitchen remodeling projects are quite exciting, especially if you’ve been laboring under an unattractive or impractical kitchen space. But that excitement can often lead to unnecessary expenses and delays in what should be an otherwise smooth and easy-to-understand process. Generally speaking the more pre-planning you can do on your remodeling? project, the better. And with most projects of this nature waiting for the good weather of spring, now is an excellent time to start that planning. It could end up saving you a great deal of money.

What to Watch for in Pre-Planning

Whoever you contact for your kitchen remodeling should go over all your options with you and help you set up as many details as possible. Why? Because pre-planning usually costs very little. Expenses don’t start to add up until construction begins. Problems or changes during that stage can add up very quickly and wreck your budget if you aren’t careful.

So what kind of things should you discuss in pre-planning? They can include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Additional Outlets.?If you’re looking to add a second sink, a larger stove or any other outlets for a water or gas line, that will likely involve extra pipe being laid. That should be the centerpiece of the remodeling project and worked out before other details are discussed.
  • Specific Limitations.?Two things almost never change during a kitchen remodeling project: the amount of square footage in the space and the budget for the project. You should discuss both at length with your technician and be prepared to accept changes that get around these hard fast rules.
  • Practicality vs. Aesthetics.?Most kitchen remodeling projects involve new surfaces such as cabinets and countertops. Those need to be balanced against the practical needs of a kitchen, such as accessing certain appliances and having room to maneuver.
