Design and layout
It is important to have a vision of what you want your final kitchen remodel to look like. Creating an idea file with pictures, patterns, brochures, and other inspiration will help you discover your style and needs.
It is also wise to hire a professional kitchen designer to help transform your ideas into a functional design that follows regulations. In this stage, the plans for the electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning should be considered. Your design plans are an important communication tool for you, your contractor, and others parties involved in the project.
Doing your research and having your appliances, fixtures, furniture, and other room essentials picked out in advance will help simplify and quicken the remodeling process. Shopping for the chosen items and having them available when needed will ease installation, and eliminate anxiety and stress. For some items, ordering and delivery can take between 4 and 8 weeks, so make sure to plan ahead.
Now is the time to finalize contracts and agreements with professional designers and contractors who will help work on the project.
