So, you’re remodeling your kitchen, and you’ve decided to hire a kitchen designer. This is a great move and will help you reduce the stress and help your kitchen transform into the kitchen of your dreams. To get the most out of your time with the designer, follow these 6 steps to ensure that the process goes smoothly:
Ask Yourself about your Current Kitchen
What do you like about your kitchen? What do you dislike about it? What types of things would you change? What types of cooking do you do? How much time do you spend in the kitchen? What are you must haves? And what are some things you could do without?
Research Different Kitchen Styles
Go online and look up as many kitchen styles as your eyeballs will allow. Take a look at the things you like, as well as the things you don’t like. Write don’t the types of styles that you find that you a drawn to and the ones that you absolutely hate. This will help your designer get a good feeling for your individual style preference.
Look at Cabinet Options
Kitchen cabinets play an extremely large role in the design of a kitchen, so spend a fair amount of time researching what you’d like in cabinet options. Your budget will also dictate some of what you can do here, so it’s good to know your options before meeting with your kitchen designer.
Plan Your Budget
There is nothing worse than planning this gorgeous dream kitchen and falling in love with it, only to have your dreams crushed by discovering that it’s well out of your budget. Save yourself and your designer the headache and let them know your budget upfront.
Plan Your Timeline
This will allow your designer to properly plan and execute all of the necessary steps needed to make your dream kitchen come true.
Let your designer know the truth and be truthful with yourself when explaining what you’ll be using your kitchen for! It will save everyone time and energy and will help you get a kitchen that is a perfect fit for you and your family.
