Questions to Ask When Planning your Kitchen Remodel
Planning a kitchen remodel is an exciting process. If your kitchen is outdated or not functioning as effectively as it could be, a remodel could change your entire experience and enjoyment of cooking. When planning your remodel, it’s important to ask yourself several different questions to develop a design and layout that works for you.
1. How do you use your kitchen? When it comes to the way you use your kitchen, it’s best to consider how frequently you cook at home, and how many people are using the kitchen at one time. If you don’t use your kitchen frequently, the layout and size will be different than someone who cooks at home every day of the week. Similarly, if there is normally only one person cooking in the kitchen at a time rather than two, the layout may be different as well.
2. How much storage do you need? Are your kitchen cabinets and drawers bursting at the seams, or do you have lots of extra storage space? When planning your kitchen remodel, it’s a good idea to make an list of the current contents of your kitchen. If you have many small appliances or several sets of dishes, it’s important to make sure you have enough room in your remodel to accommodate all of them.
3. Do you plan on buying more? If you plan to add to your current collection of kitchen plates, glasses, small appliances, serving dishes, and more, then you will need to add even more storage to your remodel plans.
4. Do you have any unique kitchen-related hobbies? When it comes to your kitchen, do you have any unique activities that would require special customization? For example, if you are an avid fisher, you may need extra freezer space. If you collect wine or frequently use your kitchen to organize bills, you may want to customize your kitchen to accommodate these needs.
