Brakur_where_to_start.jpgIt is no secret that remodeling a kitchen is one of the most complicated home renovation projects you can do in the house.  At the same time is also one of the most rewarding and will give you the biggest return on your investment.  According to HGTV you should get at least a 70 percent return on your kitchen remodel investment, or more, when selling your home. 

In the most recent Houzz Kitchen Trends study we learn kitchens serve multiple purposes. Almost 65 percent of kitchens open to outdoor living areas.  Many homeowners are adding expanded kitchen features such as beverage stations, work stations, built in refrigerators and many other custom features. Lastly 3 out of 4 homeowners are choosing to change their style. With so many things involved in a kitchen remodel, where should you start?

Where to Start in a Kitchen Remodel

  1. Make a list of things you don’t like about your current kitchen and what is not working.
  2. Determine what you can afford to spend and set your budget.
  3. Search magazines and online sources and explore different cabinet styles, kitchen colors, countertops, appliances, flooring, and lighting fixtures you like and compile them in a notebook or on a jump drive that you can share with your kitchen designer.
  4. Schedule an appointment with your kitchen designer at the cabinet company so they can get a feel for what you want in your knew kitchen and show you different cabinet options. Choose your cabinet dealer or manufacturer with these criteria.
  5. Schedule an appointment for kitchen designer to come to your home and measure your space and help you determine the best kitchen layout
  6. Once your designer has been to your home, it is time to order everything, choose cabinets, and get ready for the adventure to begin.
