Before you even start to look for appliances or cabinets, you need to think about your project, set a budget, and decide on a style. Let us guide you through some of the questions you should ask yourself and help you find the answers.

Remodeling a kitchen is a big undertaking and one that requires careful planning. If you're thinking about redoing your kitchen, we can offer ideas on some important things to consider before you go ahead with your remodeling plans. Whether you've already gathered information, ideas, and samples, or are in the beginning stages of looking at your space and trying to figure out what to do, it's smart to step back and consider the larger picture of remodeling a kitchen.

Should We Add On?
Space is often a basic need when remodeling a kitchen. Yet before you knock out the walls, weigh the cost of the extra space vs. either saving the money you would have spent on an addition or putting some of that money into better quality cabinets or higher-end appliances instead.

  • Think about your true goal for kitchen remodeling. Is it really more square footage or is it for a lighter, brighter, more functional kitchen space?
  • Look to adjoining rooms where you might steal some square footage. For example, you might take a hodgepodge of smaller rooms (laundry, pantry, bathroom, or mudroom) and merge them into one super-functional kitchen space.
  • Discuss your project with a certified kitchen planner to get their ideas. A good space planner may be able to reconfigure the walls, the ceiling, or the windows to make a kitchen space feel larger without the expense of a room addition.
