It’s a common saying in residential design that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and we at Crawford Home Improvements want to help you make your kitchen just that. If you are thinking about starting a kitchen remodeling project, keep reading to learn three key tips on how to make it a success.
- Budget Carefully- Our first tip for kitchen remodeling is to budget your money carefully. In our experience here at Crawford Home Improvements, kitchens are one of the areas where homeowners are most likely to overspend, and we want to help you avoid repeating that mistake. Before you start brainstorming ideas, take an honest look at your finances and decide how much you are comfortable spending on this project.
- Work with Your Home’s Style- The next piece of advice we want to offer is to make your kitchen remodeling endeavors work with your home’s existing architectural style, rather than against it. While you may dream of a massive, restaurant-quality kitchen with sleek, minimalist design, putting such a kitchen into a 1950s ranch-style home will create a serious clash in aesthetics. Instead of designing a kitchen that looks like it belongs in someone else’s house, focus on the strengths of your home’s existing style and work them into your new kitchen.
- Check Your Floor Plan- Our third tip for successful kitchen remodeling is to make sure to get the floor plan right. Nothing plays a bigger role in the overall function of your kitchen, so it’s important to make sure the floor plan places your appliances in a logical flow. We at Crawford Home Improvements recommend paying particular attention to where the stove, sink, and refrigerator are in relation to each other, as those are the key areas for a successful workflow.
