Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Start Kitchen Remodeling
Starting a kitchen remodeling project in Anaheim Hills, CA brings all the fun and excitement of working with a blank canvas. This is the ideal time to dig up all of that design inspiration and start creating the kitchen of your dreams. Before you break out the magazines and Pinterest boards, there are some important questions you will want to ask yourself. While the extra planning may seem like a hassle, taking the time to answer the following simple questions can save you money and greatly reduce the amount of time spent remodeling your kitchen.
What didn’t work with our old kitchen?
Chances are there was something about your old kitchen that annoyed you; otherwise, you wouldn’t be remodeling it! While it’s important to know what design or functionality issues you would like to avoid this time around (and what you would like to keep) make sure you don’t base your entire remodel on it. Remember, when it comes to design it’s important to maintain some balance.
What will I be doing in this kitchen?
You are probably thinking cooking is the obvious answer, but try to think in more detail than that. Do you have an avid fisherman at home and need plenty of sink space for cleaning? Are you a passionate baker that dreams of a large counter filled with freshly baked pies? Maybe you’re not a big fan of cooking at all and would just like a cozy breakfast nook where you can drink your coffee and read a good book. Whatever you love to do, incorporate it into your remodel to help ensure your kitchen space works with you and not against you.
How many people will be using this space?
Whether you are a family of five or a cozy party for two, you will want to keep your head count in mind while planning your kitchen remodel. Consider how many people are likely to be in your kitchen at the same time, and how to create an easy flow of traffic that will prevent chaos from ensuing! The more space you have in your kitchen (at any given time) the easier it will be to move about and prepare your meals.
