Common Mistakes to Avoid When Planning Your Kitchen Renovations

Here at Carolinas Custom Kitchen & Bath Center, we know that renovating your kitchen is a complex undertaking that involves many different decisions. With so many things to keep track of, it’s easy to make mistakes. The best way to avoid mistakes is to be prepared, so in this article, our team will be going over three of the most common mistakes when it comes to planning kitchen renovations so that you can avoid them.

  1. Poor Workflow. One common mistake in kitchen renovations is failing to consider the workflow. The three busiest areas of any kitchen are the refrigerator, the stove, and the sink, so these features should never be placed side by side. Instead, arrange them in a triangle formation to make sure that more than one person can cook at the same time.
  2. Choosing Appliances Too Late. Another mistake that we at Carolinas Custom Kitchen & Bath Center have seen in many kitchen renovations is choosing appliances too late in the process. Your cabinets should fit snugly against your appliances, but it’s much easier to fit your cabinets around those appliances than it is to find appliances that fit into gaps in your cabinets.
  3. Not Enough Storage. The third most common mistake in kitchen renovations is not including enough storage. Even if the homeowners include plenty of cabinet space, they often still fail to make the most efficient use of it because they neglect to include roll out drawers, tray dividers, or other organizers. Our team at Carolinas Custom Kitchen & Bath Center will make sure that you have everything you need to make use of every available inch of storage space in your new kitchen.
