How to Plan a Kitchen Renovation

The kitchen is the most visited place in a house, regardless of how many rooms the house might have otherwise. Therefore, this place frequently becomes messy and needs renovation more often as compared to the other rooms in a house.

For many people, renovation seems like a big problem. They keep on wasting time thinking about where to start, how to finish everything in the shortest possible time, and what if they remain unsatisfied with the work done?

If you want to renovate your kitchen, it is necessary to take into account that, in its new version, it should preserve the functionality and comfort that the previous version had. In large houses, the kitchen is often used as a living room (complete with a television), besides being used for cooking purposes. Modern housewives spend more time in the kitchen than they do in other areas of the house.

Renovation cannot be done without using several types of building materials and of course it all depends on your proposed budget in which you want to make adequate changes to the kitchen. You can simply update the interior and furnishings, or radically change the design of the entire kitchen. The most important thing to do when renovating a kitchen is to make sure you plan beforehand, so the entire process is carried out smoothly and in as short a period of time as possible.

  • 1

    Determine the purpose of your kitchen - will it be used in the near future for anything other than cooking? For example, you can also add in a dining table for family gatherings and evening feasts if you have a spacious kitchen.

  • 2

    Consider changing the style, colour and/or design of the tiles when you start renovation. Traditionally, the classic style is used, but you can choose from a variety of options, given the interior design of the house and your personal tastes.

  • 3

    Make a detailed plan about how you are going to go about any repairs needed. It is important to think in advance about whether it will be a complete overhaul, including the replacement of wiring, reloading floor and ceiling coverings, wall covering, and installation of new equipment and furniture, or just a partial modernization of the kitchen.

    In the case of major repairs, pick up the kitchen furniture, and move it out of the way - this must be done before you start wiring.

  • 5

    Draw a sketch of the future kitchen with complete dimensions and furniture arrangement. Think about the materials you will use to coat the walls, plank floors, how to decorate the ceiling etc. This sketch can be used as a reference when you begin the renovation.

    When choosing tiles, pay attention to the fact that they must be moisture resistant. Most often, tiles used in kitchens are made up of laminate, linoleum or ceramic.

    If you want to save time and effort, hire a work crew to perform the repair work. However, keep in mind that this service is extremely expensive.
