Whether you are redoing the entire house or are simply ready to create the kitchen of your dreams, kitchen remodeling is an exciting challenge for any homeowner. Residents of Laguna Niguel are browsing through their favorite home décor magazines and getting their hands dirty in the attempt to create kitchen spaces that are as beautiful as they are functional. For many, this task can be overwhelming, resulting in remodels that go on much longer than expected. To save time and money, it’s best to take certain factors into consideration while planning your remodel, prior to making any purchases. To help ease the process we have put together a shot list of things to keep in mind before beginning the remodel on your kitchen.
What is the primary use of this room?
We know, the answer to this question should be pretty obvious, but if you really stop to consider it there is likely a secondary function to your kitchen other than cooking. Is this a space where your children will work on homework? Where you will respond to emails? Or perhaps your kitchen will be the focal point for any entertaining that happens in your home? Keep these questions in mind at the very beginning of your planning so you can be sure to incorporate elements that fulfill these needs. For example, you may need an extra-large island for entertaining, or a built in breakfast nook where the kids can quietly work. Perhaps you would like to add on extra walls or shutters to separate your cooking space from your entertaining space. The options are endless.
Where are the entrances in your home?
Many homeowners fail to take into consideration the primary entrances into their home, but this is a necessary consideration when it comes to the placement of any new kitchen cabinets or pantries that will be installed. You want to make sure that any opening doors will not interrupt the flow of traffic.
How many people are living in your home?
Unfortunately, this factor is often put on the back burner until it’s too late. Remember to think about how many people will be using the kitchen at the same time. This will help determine how wide walk ways should be, how to organize cabinets, and how far apart dining and cooking areas should be kept. Also keep in mind any small children you currently have to keep sharp corners high and tucked away.
