You’ve finally decided to go ahead and remodel that kitchen, so now it’s time for the fun part: planning. Of course, as you’re going through the planning process, it is important to keep in mind that your options are going to be limited by the budget and square footage you have to work with. But aside from that, what important considerations are there in planning a kitchen remodel?
How You’ll Use It
How many people will your kitchen need to serve and how regularly? This should be an early consideration. If you live in a two-person household, and you don’t host parties, your kitchen needs – from the stove top to the refrigerator storage, to the seating and counter space – will be very different than if you live with 5 kids and host big parties every weekend. Carefully consider how the space will be used, and by how many people, and use that to plan other aspects of the design.
Cost or Value?
When you’re doing a kitchen remodel, every single part will come in a variety of finishes and price points. Most people look for ways to save money at every turn, but before you make the decision on cost, consider the value. Even if something costs more, it may potentially be worth it. If the upgrade solves a big problem or pet peeve for you, it is probably worth the cost. If it will improve your everyday life, or even just improve the overall value of your home, it is probably worth the cost. Don’t write something off based only on cost without considering value.
As you picture your new kitchen are you picturing yourself as you are or how you wish you were? Your kitchen remodel is not going to magically change your personality or your habits much in the long run. If you hate to do dishes and they always pile up, despite the dishwasher right by the sink, a new kitchen won’t change that. However, if adding a dishwasher that you don’t have is an option, that might help you tackle the pile of dishes more easily and readily. As you plan your kitchen remodel, plan for the person you are, not who you want to be, but look for ways to make it easier to get the work done.
