Costly Kitchen Remodeling Pitfalls
Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling has plenty of ways to help you create the perfect kitchen, and with our expert advice, we can also provide some tips about what not to do when remodeling a residential kitchen. Knowing what things to avoid is as important as knowing which things will make your kitchen timeless and functional.
We’ve worked with customers from Shawnee to Prairie Village and all over downtown Kansas City, so you can trust our reputation when it comes to your home renovation!
Our team of pros will advise you on the big features and the smaller details that will make your kitchen look larger, more stylish, and less dated – all without following each and every trend that’s out at the moment.
For starters, here are a few things to avoid when remodeling your Overland Park or Lenexa kitchen:
Not having a plan
Certain elements need to be chosen first, and other decisions will hinge on those. Therefore, it’s important that you know what to do first and what can wait until later. An experienced contractor can help you make these decisions in the correct order, from appliances and counter tops to wall color!
Underestimating the amount of storage space you will need
Think about the issues that you struggle with in your current kitchen. Wouldn’t it be nice to have more kitchen cabinets? It’s not just the addition of more cabinets, though. It’s when you have more accessible cabinets that will make your kitchen easier to navigate, whether you’re cooking for a hungry family every night or entertaining guests on the weekends.
Thinking you have enough counter space
Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling would ask you this simple question: Do you ever? In our years of experience, homeowners who are renovating a kitchen almost always ask for our advice on how to maximize their counter space, especially in smaller homes. From Olathe to Leawood, we help homeowners make the most of their kitchen countertops with wall storage that keeps your countertops clear to hidden workspace that slides out of sight when you don’t need it.
Doing the whole thing yourself
Did you know there’s something called the kitchen ‘work triangle’? A kitchen designer can explain this and many other design concepts to you, even if you plan on doing much of the work yourself. Letting a professional take a good look at your kitchen before you get started and offer up advice on your upcoming DIY project will make the entire project go smoother. While all the individual parts of your kitchen remodel may be within your grasp, it’s a good idea to have an expert look over your design plans to avoid complications.
In addition to helping you adjust and finalize your designs, a professional Kansas City kitchen remodeler can help you stay on budget. Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling experts won’t try to talk you into features that you don’t want or can’t afford. We just try to give customers the amount of help they need and create beautiful kitchens that are highly functional, while increasing home value in the process.
