Tips to Ensure Your Denver Kitchen Remodeling Project Goes Smoothly

July 4, 2018

It is exciting to finally get started with your Denver kitchen remodeling project, but it is also a big decision. You want to ensure you get the design right—and you want to make sure the project goes well. Check out this kitchen remodeling guide from the experts at This Old House before you get started. Then take a look at our tips below to ensure the project goes smoothly from start to finish.

Start With a Plan

Sit down and think about the way your kitchen currently flows. Does it work for your family? Or are you running into each other when there is more than one person preparing a meal? You might want to consider a completely different layout.
Do you need more storage? Do you need a breakfast bar? Do you want a large island? All of these items should be considered when you plan the way your kitchen will look in the end.

Research Your Options

Once you figure out the layout of your kitchen, you’ll need to decide on cabinets, countertops, and appliances. This will also help you determine a budget for your project. This is a good time to separate th
must-haves from the want-to-haves so you don’t break the bank with your project.

Hire a Contractor

With a good contractor, you have a much better chance of staying on budget and finishing on time. A contractor will know things you don’t know, such as building codes and regulations that must be followed with such a project.

Finalize Your Design

Together with your contractor, you want to finalize the design of your kitchen before the project gets officially underway. Now is the time to be realistic about your budget.

Go Shopping

Once you have finalized the design, it’s time for the fun part: choosing appliances, cabinets, countertops, colors, and finishes for your new kitchen. You can save or spend in the areas that mean the most to you. For example, if you have your heart set on high-end appliances, you might be able to save money by using a quartz rather than a granite countertop. Keep your priorities in mind so you can stay within budget.

Get Your Kitchen Ready

Before any of the work begins, you have to get your kitchen ready by clearing everything out. You need to empty the cabinets, clear off the walls, and move items out that are not going to be staying. If adjacent rooms will be impacted by the work, you might want to clear out those areas as well.
