So, you just bought your first home. Congratulations! You have a large amount of (it is a buyer’s market after all), and is well located. There is only one small problem…in the kitchen. We have all heard of someone, perhaps a relative or friend who has undergone a long and arduous process of remodeling your home. Sometimes these are horror stories, full of delays, ridiculous labor and material costs, and of course there are differences within the household in relation to what floors or cabinets to install. Then there are other, perhaps more promising stories where the good and honest contractors, amazing outlet prices for equipment and the quick installation time – perhaps a week – that gives me hope. There are some questions that should be asked before you start the process to spend your time and money on rebuilding this, the most important part of your home.
You have to ask yourself:
How wide should a renovation of the kitchen?
This is perhaps the most urgent question to ask and answer before you begin to tear down the old leaky sink with a sledgehammer. You need to consider several factors here: what is my budget, I want to keep the old appliances, and include painting/fixtures/moldings? The reason you want to choose all of these things – even what may seem to be small details in advance so that the process can go more smoothly. If you can decide on a budget you can then move on to deciding what myriad items you want to include or exclude in the renovation. The budget will determine if you can spend on a new flat-top stove or if you will have to make do with whatever is at your disposal.
You don’t want to be in the middle of the process, only to realize that you only have a hundred dollars left, and you already donated the fridge to that cousin who lives in the northern part of the state. To determine what exactly the re-modeling will consist of will spare you the confusion and delays that may plague the attempts that have been made by others. Do not install all your appliances and then have the inspiration to paint the entire kitchen a lovely shade of purple. A clear and specific list of items, a timely and appropriate manner, you can make your project quite easily. How will it combine with the rest of the house?
The concern is presented, it seems almost laughably trivial, but it is, in fact, that should be given sufficient attention. Depending on the age and style of your new home, you may need to reconsider the stainless steel cocoon you envisioned to invade your otherwise peaceful and homely atmosphere. This is not to say that the kitchen can stand out and become the central point in your home, only that the transition should not be too radical.
the color scheme, for example, can be preserved, the colors can be maintained neutral, pastel, warm or cold, or that the matter may dictate. The building/fixing of materials, for example wood, glass or metal, which can be used consistently, as well as, the match found in the rest of the house.
