What Not to Do While Planning A Kitchen Renovation

Posted by & filed under Home Remodeling.

When you are thinking about a kitchen renovation for your Burnsville home, you are probably dreaming about all of the new features you want. You probably have a mental image of the cabinets and countertops you want and you might even have the smaller details worked out, like the type of knobs you want on your cabinets. But there are several things you should not do during a kitchen renovation.

Don’t Try to Keep Up with the Joneses

Buy the appliances and features you need. You don’t necessarily have to have exactly what is trendy and in style right now. For example, if you’re not a wine drinker, then you don’t need a wine cooler in your kitchen. Budget carefully for the appliances you will use on a regular basis.

Don’t Forget to Plan Your Lighting

Recessed lighting is cost-effective and will definitely illuminate your kitchen, but it shouldn’t be your only source of lighting. When you are planning your kitchen renovation, look into a few different types of lighting. Pendant lighting, accent lighting and under-cabinet lighting are all great options for any kitchen. That way, you can turn on the lights as you need them and you don’t have to turn on a bright overhead light if you’re going to your kitchen for a midnight snack.

Don’t Forget to Bring Samples

If you have already picked out your cabinets, try to bring a sample with you to pick out your new countertops. Bring any other kitchen renovation samples too, like a sample of your new backsplash or your paint colors. Put them with one another to see how they match. If you have your heart set on a certain type of stone, it’s a good idea to make sure your other new kitchen features will match.
