Common Kitchen Remodeling Mistakes

IMG_0378 - compressedRemodeling your kitchen is exciting. Adding any new upgrades to your home that will improve its function, appeal or increase its value is always worth the time and effort. However if you make mistakes while you are completing your latest remodeling projects, your hard work could do more harm than good. Believe it or not, there are several common missteps that people take when trying to remodel their kitchen. There are a lot of things to consider once you decide to start a renovation. Good planning is an absolute necessity. If you avoid these common mistakes that many people make during their kitchen remodeling ventures, you will achieve the kitchen of your dreams.

Do Not Look Over Small Details

Of course, the big details like your perfect custom backsplash and new countertops are very important, but it is the tiny details that truly take a kitchen from good to great. Small additions such as organizers, an extra shelf here and there, another light strip, drawer dividers, pull-outs are all things that you should consider adding when remodeling your kitchen. Your kitchen should be functional and maximize efficiency—it is the small details that make this happen.

The Flow of the Room

The last thing that you want is for your newly remodeled kitchen to have an inconveniencing design. Keep your kitchen’s busy areas in mind—the sink, the stove, the island, the refrigerator and the pantry are all common busy areas of this room in a house, though your list might be a bit different. Make sure to plan your design so that traveling to and from these settings is easy and that none are in the way of one another.

Forgetting Counter Space

If you find yourself with blank space, fill it. You can never go wrong with adding a bit of extra counter space to fill gaps. Do not settle for less, as this is by far one of the most important components of any kitchen.

Protect the Rest of Your Home

A lot of homeowners do not know what they are getting into with a kitchen remodel. Things can get pretty messy. With all the paint and building materials floating around, it is easy to track supplies into your other rooms, ruining floors, walls, furniture and many other expensive items. Use plastic tarps to cover doorways that go into other rooms, cover your floors and wear protective gear over your clothes and skin while you are completing your kitchen remodel.
