4 Do's & Don'ts of Kitchen Remodeling June 7, 2018

4 Do's & Don'ts of Kitchen Remodeling, ,

Do you have a kitchen remodeling project on the horizon? From planning the design to choosing the finishes, it is important that you know how to make your new space a success. Valley Design Center, of New York City, is here to share with you some of the do’s and don’ts of kitchen remodeling. Read on to learn more from the home improvement experts.


Focus on the layout.

kitchen remodelingOne of the best parts about remodeling your kitchen is that you get to rework the space in a way that functions better for your needs. Think about how you use your kitchen on a daily basis, and build that into your design scheme. Take measurements of appliances, cabinetry, and countertops to ensure maneuverability and practicality.

Set a budget.

Kitchen remodeling is a significant investment, which is why you should make a detailed budget. Get estimates on the costs of materials, labor, and design. Also, make sure that you cushion your budget by at least 5-10% since many kitchen remodeling projects wind up costing more than expected. 


Neglect storage.

Kitchen remodeling presents you with an excellent opportunity to add storage space. Cleverly designed cabinets work well to maximize the area’s capacity. For example, use pull-out cabinets for trash bins or swivel cabinets to hold your herbs and spices. Build shelves into your backsplash or islands for additional space. 

Forget about lighting.

Adequate lighting will make your kitchen more attractive and inviting. Additionally, it will keep you safe while you chop vegetables, use food processors, or cook over hot ranges. In addition to overhead fixtures, include under-cabinet and drop lighting solutions that will illuminate the space and clarify your vision. 

When you’re ready to change the way your property looks and functions, allow Valley Design Center to help you reinvent the space.
