Being able to answer the "Why do the remodeling?" Question. When you meet a designer kitchen, s / want to know why you're remodeling. Need more space? Just want a new look? Or, maybe there needs special consideration as a person with arthritis or a home with young children.
Keep expectations realistic. If you mid-November, not only will allow time to remodel the kitchen before Christmas. You must have a realistic expectation of how long the project will the first time you meet with a designer for placement of orders for the actual work done.
Determine a budget. It is imperative that you figure out what you want to go and share that magic number with your designer. A good designer will not design a new kitchen for you that will cost $ 80K if s / know your budget is $ 30K.
Show and tell. They found examples of kitchens, as in magazines and take them with when you meet with a designer. Pay attention to detail in the image that attract you, and take note of what you like about the image.
Needs vs. wants. If you want more space, additional storage space or a garbage and recycling cabinet, make separate lists of what they really need and what you want. Your designer will work with you (and within your budget) to ensure that their needs are met, but s / he will also strive to incorporate these luxuries they were really like.
Taking inventory. Go through your kitchen cabinets and clean all the old things which is not longer needed or never used. Then make a new inventory list of equipment, dishes and other items you need more space in your new kitchen. If you shop in bulk, be sure to include these items in your inventory list.
The Comfort is key. It is important that a homeowner is comfortable with both the designer and contractor. Find someone with experience and always check their references. Be sure to choose a reliable, reputable, the contractor is properly licensed and insurance that you know will deliver quality work
