Kitchen Remodeling – Not Sure Where to Start?
The first step in kitchen remodeling is answering two questions: 1. Why do you want to remodel? and 2. What do you want? The answers to these two questions will shape the type of remodel you do and help you think about the remodeling cost.
Why Do You Need Kitchen Remodeling?
Typical answers to this question include:
- The kitchen fixtures and appliances are old and need to be updated.
- I want to sell my house, and the current condition of the kitchen may adversely affect the sale.
- The kitchen “just doesn’t work.” It’s poorly designed.
The answers above are in order from the least expensive and complex to the most expensive and complex.
What Do You Want?
Most people want some or all of the following:
- New cabinets, backsplash, countertops, and sink
- More modern light fixtures in the kitchen
- New appliances
- More natural light in the kitchen
- New kitchen floor
- Kitchen pantry
- Larger kitchen
- Big kitchen island
The price and complexity of the remodel increase with each combination of items on the “I want this” list.
