Don’t Get Burned on a Kitchen Remodel

Your kitchen is the hub of your house. It’s where you make lunches before dashing off to work and school, it’s where you congregate to cook after a long day, and it’s where you make holiday magic happen. Kitchen remodels often mean a whole lot of takeout until renovations are complete. Don’t swing the first sledgehammer until you have a kitchen remodel plan in place.

How to Start a Kitchen Remodel

  1. couple cooking in modern kitchenPartner up. The first step to a successful kitchen remodel is finding the right person for the job. Unless your spouse is a contractor, you’ll want to find a reputable professional to help manage the project.
  2. Build a budget. Make sure there’s an “emergency fund” built into your budget. Remodels often go over cost because of mishaps with materials, additional labor, or other unforeseen issues.
  3. Prioritize. Do you want to install quartz countertops, update the appliances, tear out the cabinets, add an island, and maybe install a wine fridge while you’re at it? Prioritize your wish list so you don’t overspend.
  4. Minimize risk (and cut costs). What’s an easy way to speed up your remodel (and save some dough while you’re at it)? Keep the general layout of your kitchen intact, focusing on easy updates like new cabinets and countertops. Moving the oven across the room isn’t only costly, it’s also probably pointless.
  5. Simplify the process. You may splurge on replacing cracked formica counters with sturdy, elegant quartz, but a simple coat of paint may breathe new life into the cabinets. Consider low-cost solutions before splurging for a major renovation.
