Before undergoing a kitchen remodel there are a few things you need to think about. Some people don’t realize some of the difficulties of living without a functioning kitchen for the duration of the remodel. Others like to dive in head first and face the challenges as they appear. We believe in prepping our clients to the best of our ability so that everything goes smoothly throughout the process. Yes, your daily routine may be disrupted but our ultimate goal is that our clients get their dream kitchen, always. Here are some honest tips for people who are thinking about a remodel or are about to go forward with one:
- A successful temporary kitchen: We covered this topic in detail in the last blog, but this one deserves to be repeated. It is so important! This is the spot that will house some of your dishes, food, flatware, small appliances and most importantly, your food! Get more information on a successful temporary kitchen here.
- Work with a designer: This may seem obvious, but working with a designer will relieve you of a lot of responsibility. Our designers make sure measurements add up, cabinetry is ordered correctly, and we keep track of every component needed from floor to ceiling. That’s what we love to do. Our happiest moment is seeing a happy client in their new beautiful kitchen (or bath!). The designer is also the middle man, he or she takes care of all the details with other contractors such as the electrician or plumber. Sit back, relax, and let your designer do the dirty work.
- Patience: Patience is KEY. If you realize and accept that remodeling does not happen overnight, then you are already on your way. Remodeling, no matter how large or small does take time and can sometimes be frustrating. We urge you, as your designer, to look at the light at the end of the tunnel. Every day that goes by is another day closer to completion!
We love what we do and we love making our clients happy. If you feel ready to take the next step, then give us a call!
