The Dos & Don’ts of a Complete Kitchen Remodel, Ewa, Hawaii

If you’re planning to renovate your kitchen, you likely have a general vision of the ideal culinary space. Whether you want to increase your workspace or give the room an aesthetic update, the project requires the expertise of a general contractor along with some serious decision-making. As you embark on a kitchen remodeling project, keep these do’s and don’ts in mind.

A Guide to a Successful Kitchen Remodeling Project


Determine what you need the most.

Take stock of the details that will make the biggest impact in your kitchen. Maybe you need more counter space or cabinets. If you don’t cook often, you may not want to invest in high-end appliances, but if you spend most of the day in the kitchen, those might be just what you need for optimal usefulness.

Work with an experienced professional.

Waipahu, HI kitchen remodelingWork with a general contractor who has extensive experience in kitchen remodeling. Do your research beforehand, and request references and a written estimate before you commit. A contractor who can assist in developing a kitchen design is also valuable since they can help you select elements that fall within your budget. They can also determine what is possible and what isn’t based on the structure and size of your kitchen.


Stray too far from your budget.

According to a HomeAdvisor study, a kitchen remodeling project in the United States costs approximately $23,000. Keep your budget in mind as you plan the kitchen design. Create a list of essentials, then create a second list of a few extras you would like to have if your budget allows. Also, allocate additional funds for surprise expenses that might arise during the process.

Forget about the logistical details.

A proper layout is necessary for a successful remodel. The goal is to maximize the useful space available or increase that space if it’s lacking. Since there are so many different types of layouts, have a home remodeling expert weigh in on the right design concept for your needs. If you live in a small home, for example, a single-wall layout may be the only option, but your designer can enhance the kitchen by adding ceiling-high cabinets.
