They say the kitchen is the heart of any home. But many homes in Monmouth, Middlesex and Ocean County, NJ have been designed for the way people lived 30, 40, 50 or more years ago, and that means outdated kitchens! If you are thinking about renovating your home and starting with the kitchen, you may want to consult a professional builder or a general contractor (GC) to make sure your renovation project goes smoothly.
Not only have styles changed dramatically over the years, but so has the family dynamic. Especially since the pandemic, people have reserved spaces in their homes for work and have segmented other areas in the home as play or relaxed areas. So, where should you start? In this blog we examine the most popular renovation project – the kitchen of your home.
This is a project that will certainly add value to your home, especially when it is time to sell. Remodeling a kitchen requires a plan so you can see the redesigned space with cabinets, islands, and the locations of the new appliances. Once the plan is done it is time to price it with a qualified and licensed builder or general contractor. Things can and will get messy with the demo of the old cabinets and countertops! Here are a few considerations when renovating your kitchen.
- Cabinets – style and color
- Countertops – material and color
- Flooring – material, color, and finishes
- Backsplash – style and color
- Sink – farmers sink or stainless steel
- Lighting and Electrical – new code standards
- Plumbing and fixtures
- Islands design
- Expanding the kitchen space
- Making windows larger or converting windows to doors or sliders
- Undercounter lighting
The possibilities are endless. There are selection and pricing decisions that need to be made so your kitchen renovation project does not “take forever” or “blow the budget”.
All home renovation projects start with a dream list. Kitchen renovations are the most popular and the most complex. One of the factors you need to consider is setting up a temporary area outside the kitchen to set up the coffee pot and microwave so you can make a quick meal while the kitchen is under construction.
