When it comes to remodeling projects, the kitchen is the room that homeowners invest the most in. One of the reasons is that kitchen remodeling has the tendency to have the highest return when compared to other areas in the house. That said it takes some intelligent planning and pragmatic decisions if you want to get the most bang for your buck.
How much time should you take to plan?
If you plan your kitchen remodel properly, it might actually take you as long to plan that it will take you to execute the actual construction, or longer. Believe it or not, the National Kitchen and Bath Association actually advocates that you spend no less than six months preparing. While this seems like a bit of overkill, but it would definitely help you to be certain about everything before any remodeling beings. The longer you spend preparing the less likely it is that you will discover a some newfangled item that you want to include that could bring the construction process to a temporary halt.
Proper preparation will also ensure that you are inconvenienced for a limited amount of time during construction. It will also help you stay on budget and might even reduce your costs. The last thing you want to do is interrupt the construction process once it has begun. This would likely result in additional construction costs and negatively affect your return on investment.
Always choose quality
Although it is a good idea to be careful about splashing your money on luxury kitchen items, it is also important to go for functionality and durability, and this won’t always come cheap. Cheap bargains may allow for a lean budget, but they will ultimately cost you a lot more in the long run. The trick is to find that sweet spot between high quality and affordability. You should also focus on products with long warranty periods and low maintenance requirements. For instance, top quality countertops may seem pricey at the start, but will still look fantastic for many years to come.
Expect the unexpected
As with any venture like this you have to be prepared for the unexpected. Regardless of how much time you spend planning your remodeling job, there’s virtually no way to avoid an occasional unwanted surprise. For example, it’s always a good idea to leave a little leeway for the completion of your project. If you must have it done in January, then it would be wise to plan to finish the project by November just in case.
