How To Build Your Dream Kitchen
From deciding what color scheme you want to what material to use for the countertops, deciding what you want your dream kitchen to look like comes with many moving pieces that can leave you feeling overwhelmed if you’re unprepared.
Before getting started, here are three tips on how to turn your dream kitchen into reality:
Tip #1: Plan
When thinking about what you will need to create your dream kitchen, it is essential to keep your budget and timeframe in mind.
How much do you plan to spend, and how quickly do you need your project to be done? The answers to both of these questions can impact what kind of changes to make and how your vision pans out.
Basic kitchen needs such as appliances, lighting, and storage space make a huge impact on the overall feel of your kitchen. Think about whether you’ll need a smart refrigerator to keep track of your grocery list or extra cabinet space to store all of your favorite coffee mugs, and include them into the plan
Keeping the functionality and needs in your kitchen will also play a significant role in the look and feel of the space.
Ask yourself these questions”
- Along with cooking, what else will you do in your kitchen?
- Would you want an area for kids to be able to do homework
- Do you need entertainment like a TV for yourself and guests?
Tip #2: Find A Great Contractor
Once you have a solid plan in place, it’ll then be time to share those plans and dreams with your future contractor. A good contractor will not only be able to see the vision you have for your dream kitchen, but they will also be able to use their expertise to execute that vision.
Your contractor will need to be someone you trust, so make sure that you ask the right questions and use customer reviews to get a sense of their work ethic and quality.
Tip #3: Stay On Top Of Permits
Sometimes, certain types of kitchen remodeling require a permit. If your dream kitchen plan involves removing a wall or making electrical or plumbing changes, then you’ll need a permit.
For electrical and plumbing changes, a trade-specific permit is required. Removing a wall calls for a building permit. In both cases, your contractor should be able to provide proof of both if needed!
