What To Expect During Your Kansas City Kitchen Remodel
Kitchen Remodeling Made Easy With A Thorough And Convenient Checklist
Whether you’re doing a full remodel or partial, a Kansas City kitchen remodel can be overwhelming. From strangers traipsing through your home to the inconvenience of an unusable kitchen area, kitchen remodels are notorious for instilling annoyance and frustration in homeowners.
We don’t believe this has to be the case at Jericho Home Improvement. When you’re properly prepared going into a kitchen remodel, the project can be fun and exhilarating. Instead of concentrating on the negative stressors of such a large project, knowing what to expect can save you time, money, and headaches.
Avoid these unnecessary nuisances and dive into your project headfirst, excited and prepared! To help get you started, here is a checklist of things to remember during your kitchen remodel.
Decide What You Want Replaced, Refinished, Or Remodeled
Some homeowners don’t want or need a full kitchen remodel, so deciding exactly what you want changed in your kitchen will set you up for the rest of your remodel. A professional kitchen remodeling company can help you with this decision also.
- Cabinets (refinish – paint, stain or replace – new cabinet installation)
- Countertops (material, style, color)
- Lighting (recessed, drop lighting, accent lights, etc.)
- Flooring (material, color, texture, style)
- Sink (material, style, size)
- Backsplash (material, texture, style, color)
Research And Hire A Remodeling Company
This part of the process warrants its own checklist, but for all intents and purposes, a great kitchen remodeling company offers the best products, does the most detailed installations, and cares about customer satisfaction.
Design Your New Kitchen
Designing is one of the most fun steps during a kitchen remodel – it allows you to play around with the layout, color, style, accessibility, functionality, and more. Professional design consultants can assist you during this crucial part, imparting their experience and wisdom, and ensuring you envision the most accurate outcome.
As much as we don’t want to think about it, budgets determine many of our kitchen remodeling decisions. Creating and sticking to your budget helps ensure the results you imagine. No one wants to go over budget, but knowing how to budget accurately can also be confusing.
Consulting with your kitchen remodeling company will help clear up some of these questions and help you stay on track.
Ordering Products And Scheduling
After you work with your kitchen remodeling company to decide on the most effective products for your kitchen, your contractor will order your products. Depending on the manufacturer’s schedule, this part can take weeks or months. When your products come in, your contractor will notify you and set up a date to start your remodel.
Prepare For Demolition Day
Before your remodel starts, it’s best to know the timeline of your complete project so you can make plans or find appropriate lodging accommodations. Although you don’t have to move out temporarily, you should be prepared to live without a kitchen for the duration of the remodel. Due to work noise, it’s also sometimes uncomfortable to work from home during work hours.
Ask Your Contractor About Additional Labor
Sometimes kitchen remodels require the assistance of utility workers or plumbers outside the remodeling company. Ask your contractor if this is the case with their company to ensure your electricity and plumbing are adequately handled during the process.
Demo Day Through Final Construction
There isn’t much for homeowners to do during this step of the process except sit back and wait for your stunning results.
Demo day will include removing old fixtures, floors, or lighting before continuing with construction. Over the next few days, you’ll see your new fixtures coming in and being installed.
A good contractor will walk through your finished kitchen remodel with you ensuring everything is installed correctly and is back to working order. Use this time to test your cabinets, doors, windows, flooring, and lighting to ensure everything is functioning correctly. Feel free to get close to examine the fine details and to make sure anything that needs fixing gets fixed.
Review Your Customer Experience Online
Though you don’t technically need to check this off your list, leaving accurate customer reviews gives you agency over your experience and helps other customers’ experiences. You can explain what you liked about your kitchen remodeling company and what you didn’t, keeping future customers informed.
