Here at Carolinas Custom Kitchen & Bath Center, we want to help you create your ideal kitchen. Planning a kitchen remodeling project can be an exciting way to achieve the kitchen you’ve always wanted. In our experience, however, many people can become bogged down with the many decisions that go into kitchen remodeling, which takes all the fun out of the endeavor and leaves only stress.
To help you avoid this outcome and get the best results from your kitchen remodel, our team at Carolinas Custom Kitchen & Bath Center has put together a list of guiding questions for your project. Keeping these in mind as you plan will help you stay focused and resist becoming distracted by extraneous details.
- For now or forever? Unless you’re planning to sell your home in the next two years, any kitchen remodeling efforts should be tailored to your own lifestyle and preferences. Even if you do plan on selling the place soon, other considerations, such as the state of your roof, may take priority over things like your cabinet style.
- Do your changes fit with the home’s architectural style? Every home was built in a particular time period with a particular style, and trying to mix them up can go wrong quickly if you’re not working with an architect who knows what they’re doing. Preserving characteristic details, such as colorful appliances in midcentury homes, can both keep their associated value and give your home a distinctive charm.
- Does your design make the space more functional? The most critical question to keep in mind when planning a kitchen remodeling effort is whether the new design is adding to the existing function of the space. Keeping the same level of functionality while updating the aesthetics is great, but what you want to avoid is accidentally creating a layout or design issue that makes the space harder to use.
