Kitchen remodelling is not an easy task and it requires hard work and patience. As it is going to be your first renovation experience, we would suggest you to do extensive research, and ask everyone about their experiences and what would they recommend, then plan your budget and choose designs according to it. Just know that the process will take long and things will not turn out exactly how you imagined but with proper planning and hiring the right professionals, you will get the desired look. Choose the appliances at the start and just make sure that you do not buy unnecessary stuff so that your kitchen will look neat and organised.
Here are some of the things that you should know before your first kitchen renovation project:
1. Check The Tiles Colour And Design
This is important because once the work starts, there will not be any chance to change the tile designs. When you select a tile design, make sure that they deliver the same design at your home too. Sometimes what happens is, the whole tile pattern is different from what you selected. Always check the tiles so that all the tiles are in the same colour and pattern.
2. Make Decisions On Your Own And Based On Extensive Research
You will not have an idea about all the kitchen stuff and how it works because there are technicalities involved and chances are that you will make a bad decision for most of the technical stuff. What you can do is to do your research and read about which material is good and which is not. While discussing things with contractors, do not agree to “whatever works”. You will end up regretting it later on. You should discuss it with your neighbours, friends and experienced professionals.
3. Hire Professionals
There are a lot of things related to kitchen remodelling and it is impossible to do everything on your own. A professional will help you in different ways. He will be there to guide you. You just need to plan and he will make sure that everything goes according to your plan. But before hiring any professionals, do ask them questions related to their work and how much experienced they are. Do not trust every professional you meet.
4. Install Pull Out Drawers
Many people do not add installing drawers in the initial plan and later on face difficulty in organising pots and pans. Ask the professionals to install drawers so that you can put all the extra things in them. Drawers make it so easy to find what you need and are cheap to install as well. You can choose the design that you like. Pull out Drawers are preferred over lower cabinets because you can put similar things in one drawer and can access them when you need them easily.
5. Check Everything Again When It Arrives.
Sometimes when packages arrive at your doorsteps, they are not the ones that you bought. So it is better to make sure that professionals are using things that you like and are according to the plan. Make sure they are not installing the wrong item. So for this, you need to double check everything and keep a strict check up on everyday work because after installments, it will be very difficult to change things.
6. Choose Double Bowl Sink Over Single Bowl Sink
Nowadays, professionals install double bowl sinks and it is actually better than a single bowl sink. You can wash dishes and one and place them in the other one so that they can dry. Similarly you can wash vegetables in the other. Double bowl sink has lots of advantages so make sure to buy the double bowl sink if you have space in your kitchen and if you do not have enough space then you can buy a single bowl sink.
These are all the things that you need to know before renovating a kitchen. Do not stress yourself out and write all the important tips in your diary and plan everything to avoid any difficulty in future.
