You probably wouldn’t think the terms “remodel” and “piece of cake” belonged in the same sentence. Maybe “stress” and “hassle” were more along the lines of what you imagine a remodel entails. Sure, sometimes remodeling can seem overwhelming. But we’re here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be.
Our team at Progressive Builders have put together five ways to ensure that your kitchen remodel feels less like a sprint and more like a walk in the park.
1. Have pictures on hand.
You might think you knew exactly what you wanted but seeing the design ideas other people have cooked up could spark an idea for your kitchen that you never thought of. This is where having pictures can help make things crystal clear. Try using picture apps like Instagram or Pinterest to help you figure out what you want your kitchen to end up looking like.
2. Pack it up.
Take some time before the remodel to organize your kitchen. For example, if you have a mini fridge or an extra fridge in your garage, now’s the time to take advantage of those options for storing your food. This can be a good time to clean out the area and see if there are any gadgets or appliances you no longer use. When you have taken into account everything you do in fact need, store it away during the remodel.
3. Make a meal budget.
Even though you might have all these options prepared to be able to cook food without the use of your kitchen, sometimes you still won’t want to bother. When you’re planning your kitchen remodel, consider planning your meals in advance. That way, you can work your takeout expenses into the budget for the project.
4. Think with the bigger picture in mind.
Depending on to what extent you’re remodeling your area, your kitchen might be out of commission to some capacity for a few weeks to a few months. It’s easy to think about how you feel inconvenienced at the moment, but a few weeks of working on your kitchen is a small price to pay for years of satisfaction to come.
5. Work with an expert.
From a broader view, a kitchen remodeling project may not seem very complex. However, many key players are involved to ensure that the job runs smoothly. An expert like Progressive Builders will take you through the process step by step, informing you about design possibilities that you might not have considered on your own. With an expert, you can take any guesswork out of your kitchen remodel and turn it into a collaborative, creative one that you can actually enjoy.
