While kitchen upgrades increase your home’s property value and give you a better quality of life, they can also come with a number of challenges. So before you head into remodeling your kitchen, it’s best to prepare by asking yourself these key questions:
Understanding your ultimate goal will help you and your contractor focus on what’s important. Lasting solutions can transform your kitchen into an efficient space, while less costly design enhancements can help increase your home’s value when it’s time to sell.
Before you begin any big project, it’s vital to know what your budget is. Once you’ve decided, it’s also important to be honest with your design team and contractors about your limits. It’s a good rule of thumb to add an extra 10% since things don’t always go quite as planned.
If you’ll be living in your home for 1-2 years, it’s better to consider a different type of renovation that’s not as costly, or something that’s more timeless and traditional. If you plan on living there for longer, you’ll naturally want to budget for something you’ll really love.
It’s also important to figure out the living situation during the renovation period. If you plan on staying in your home, you should let the construction team know as it adds to the level of protection and cleanliness they’ll need to maintain.
