Tips to Streamline Your Kitchen Remodeling Project
A beautiful, updated kitchen sets the tone for the entire house. Homeowners invest a great deal in upgrades as the kitchen is one of the most valuable and useful spaces – and the best way to increase a home’s resale value.
Every remodeling project has its own specs and may need extra steps, however, we have set five basic steps for kitchen remodeling that will assist in a better experience throughout the process.
1. Recognize your Needs
Think about what you don’t like about your current kitchen, and what you would like to accomplish with your remodel. What are your needs? Wants? Ask your contractor if they offer an evaluation worksheet to share with you.
2. Set a Budget
Pricing for kitchen remodeling runs a wide range depending on the size, style, material, hardware, finishes, fixtures, space reconfiguration, etc.of the project. It is important to know how much you want to invest and what funds you have for your project. If you plan to obtain a loan, talk to a loan officer to determine the best options.

3. Hire a Professional
Once you have determined the scope of your project, it is time to hire a professional remodeling contractor. You want to work with someone you can trust to do the work right – the FIRST time.
You can find information about a contractor’s reputation from social media, references, awards, and the time they have been in the remodeling business. It is important to find remodeling contractors who belong to professional organizations such as the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA).
4. The Design Phase
After clarifying your ideas and budget, it is time to start the design phase. Some homeowners assume they can skip this step with small projects, however, finalizing the fixtures, materials, and finishes is a significant part of the design process. In major kitchen remodeling, the design phase may also involve architectural and structural input from professional consultants. Another benefit of the design phase is to eliminate mistakes and potential delays. The evaluation worksheet will come in handy in this phase.
Resources such as Houzz, Pinterest and remodeling publications are helpful in selecting images of kitchen designs you prefer. Your design ideas can range from photos of full kitchens to details such as cabinet door styles, accessories, and flooring.
The more information you compile to illustrate your desired kitchen, the easier it will be for the remodeling professional to deliver that design.
5. The Construction Phase
After the design phase, it is time to calculate your project’s exact cost and make plans to begin the construction. Many homeowners prefer to move out of the home during major kitchen remodeling due to lack of access to the kitchen, however, this is by no means a requirement. Communication is important, as your remodeler’s schedule will help you handle the temporary inconvenience.
