3 Questions to Answer with Kitchen Design
Remodeling projects typically wait until spring, when the weather is warmer and cold temperatures won’t have an impact on the operation. But if you’re looking at upgrading your kitchen with a remodeling project, now is the time to start planning. The more preparations you can make before the work begins, the fewer delays you will experience and the more readily you can handle the unexpected.
In particular, there are three specific questions you should answer when it comes to kitchen design. By going over it with your remodeling service, you can ensure that both of you are on the same page and can better handle serious problems whenever they crop up.
1. How Do You Intend to Use Your New Kitchen?
The first and most important question is what kind of use you intend to put your new kitchen to, and why it will be necessary to remodel it in order to do so. That will form the basis of your design plans and give your technician a starting place from which to make suggestions. For instance, if you do a lot of cooking and never have enough counter space — or if multiple family members end up using the kitchen at once and you need more space for everyone to do their thing — then a remodeling project will make sure to expand available counter space?to better reflect that. This can involve a lot of honest questions about the practical use of the space and where changes might be made to make more effective use of it?
2. What Appliances Do You Intend to Use?
All kitchens contain a certain number of appliances which play a huge role in your home’s comfort. This starts with things like the refrigerator, the freezer and the dishwasher, as well as less frequently used devices like baking appliances or dough mixers. Regardless, such appliances will require plumbing outlets in many cases and electrical outlets in almost all of them. That means taking stock of both your piping and your electrical outlets and — if you need additional ones — factoring them in carefully with your plans. You may want to include extra outlets as part of your planning, in order to handle any unexpected additions to your appliances in the future.
3. How Much Practical Space Do You Have to Work With?
Many kitchen remodeling projects are intended to provide additional space for moving around and working with. An impractical kitchen can be a huge nuisance. It’s important, however, to note the constraints under which you’ll be operating. Things like load-bearing walls and the like will dictate the maximum amount of space you have to plan your new kitchen. That in turn can help you set priorities for the new space, and help you separate the things you really need?from your new kitchen with the things you can live without if you require it, and streamline the actual remodeling process accordingly.
