WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN REMODELING YOUR KITCHEN
Remodeling is a very big decision, and can take a toll on you financially, emotionally and even physically if you are not completely prepared for the process. Knowing what to expect when you remodel is key to getting through the project. While you should certainly have high expectations for your kitchen remodeling project, you also must be realistic. On the path to your dream kitchen, there could be delivery foul ups, subcontractor scheduling conflicts, errors or unanticipated work or repairs, unexpected or delayed inspections by building departments and more. You will also be confronting lots of dust and noise, loss of privacy, and increased financial responsibility. There will be dozens of decisions to be made along the way, and potential disagreements with your spouse or even your contractor. Everyone, including your pets, will feel the strain! But, don’t let me dissuade you if you know what to expect, plan appropriately and follow these simple guidelines, you will increase your chances of turning your dream kitchen into a reality without too much stress. And once your project is complete, you will be rewarded with the fruits of all your planning, hard work, efforts, time and money.
Select a One-Stop-Shop
To simplify your project, consider working with someone who “does it all.” Working with one firm that handles everything, from design to product purchasing through installation, is the best idea, unless you want to take on the role of general contractor yourself. A licensed design firm will already have the best team of installers and subcontractors in place, and can coordinate and oversee the entire project.
Pay Attention to Your Project
If possible, wait until all cabinets, appliances and necessary items have arrived before the work begins. When deliveries are made, always check for damage and have the materials put in a safe place that is out of your way, until work begins. As the work proceeds, keep an eye on the details, however large and small they may be. Inspect the work, and write down comments or questions to review with your contractor. You may even want to set up regular meetings to go over progress to date and to receive updates on what’s in store for the days ahead.
Since you are going to lose all or part of your kitchen for several weeks, one of the best preparations you can make is to set up a temporary kitchen outside the work area. Set this up in a place that you can access easily and safely. It’s best to set up near another water source such as a bath or laundry sink, where you can also set up your microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot or other small appliances you need to get by temporarily. If possible, relocate your refrigerator in or near this temporary area.
