4 Questions to Ask Before You Remodel Your Kitchen

It’s easy to want to just get started and kick your old kitchen to the curb, but before you do, ask yourself these questions.

Why are you Remodeling Your Kitchen?

The purpose of your remodel makes a big difference. If you are remodeling right before you list your home on the market, there are different aspects of your remodel that you will need to consider versus those you are making for bettering your enjoyment of your kitchen. The remodeling choices you make and upgrades you choose may differ based on the reason for your remodel.

Are You Respecting Your Home’s Architecture?

It’s easy to assume that no matter the style of your home that you need to embrace the current trends, but this isn’t always the case. If you have been living with older appliances, you may assume that it is, for example, time for your orange oven or teal stove to go. However, many people are searching for homes with an older, vintage look and these colorful appliances can be artfully incorporated into a modern design. Working with the architectural style of your home instead of fighting it, can create a beautiful, unique, and cohesive look.

Is Your Kitchen Functional?

It’s easy to get caught up in the look of your kitchen, but don’t forget about function — function and style aren’t enemies. To make sure that you are getting your trendy kitchen with adequate space, it is helpful to list out those aspects of each characteristic — style and function — that are for you non-negotiables. After you’ve created your list, it’s time to see how functionality and style can work together.

Do You Trust Your Contractor?

One of the most important questions, that is somewhat unrelated to the details of your kitchen remodel but will affect it, is your contractor. Your contractor can help you create the kitchen of your dreams and make the process headache-free or they can make your life a living hell. Before you begin your remodel, make sure that you trust your contractor.
