Do’s And Don’ts For Kitchen Remodeling

Dos and donts kitchen remodeling

Kitchen remodeling is one of the most popular housing projects and for plenty of good reasons. Around Kansas City alone the number of requests for this work has increased significantly.

There are several good reasons to have this done:

  • You bought a house and want to customize this area to your wants and needs
  • You love the house you have been in for years but feel it needs updating
  • Your family at home has increased or decreased in size and you want this room to adjust accordingly
  • The kitchen simply does not work for you as-is

Whatever the reason for wanting this type of work done, now it is time to consider some dos and don’ts of remodeling a kitchen.

  • Do design for functionality not just looks. Focus on functional and then worry about the final esthetics.
  • Don’t make walkways too narrow. It can be tempting to try to give yourself more space to work with by sacrificing pathways. When the project is complete and you have to move around it will be something you instantly regret.
  • Do allow for plenty of counter space. This is especially important if you do a good deal of cooking or baking.
  • Don’t forget to plan so that everything makes your life easier. Landing space near the microwave, a swing-out faucet to fill large pots and other features should all help make your life easier and save you time.
  • Do plan for trash and recycling. Nothing is worse than planning out your entire kitchen perfectly and then having to place bins in plain view and blocking pathways for your trash and recyclables.
  • Don’t forget to include enough outlets. The best looking kitchen can quickly look cluttered when all the plug in appliances have to live by the only electrical receptacle in the room.
