Kitchen Remodel Construction
While home is where your heart is, the kitchen is the heart of your home. We’d ask what inspired you to remodel your kitchen and think of many reasons to make the move, but the fact that you’re here is your assurance that your kitchen can use an update.
Remodeling a kitchen is more than just selecting a backsplash, countertop, floor covering, appliances and fixtures. Kitchen is one of the most used spaces in your home and withstanding the constant use while providing you the experience needed is what we consider to be a successful kitchen construction project.
With all the information presented to you often times you can get overwhelmed with how and where to start. How do you select a contractor? What questions do you ask to make sure you’re making the right decision? Here is some direction:
- What is the style of your home? It is very important to stay true to the style of your home. The only exception here is if you are planning on remodeling the rest of your space. If you’re living in a traditional home but want a modern kitchen, you can have traditional as your foundation and build on that with modern finishes.
- How do you come up with a budget? The first consideration in order to set a budget is the length of time you plan on being in your home. The next factor is wether you plan on remodeling it when you decide to sell your home.
- Who do you hire? There isn’t such a thing as a bad contractor. There is truth in the contractor who fits the role and is capable of carrying it out. The contractor who will answer your calls long after you’re paid them the project retention. Visit our F.A.Q. page for more tips on how to interview a contractor.
- How do you manage? Weekly site meetings with owner and contractor are a must. If you have an architect or designer, make sure everyone is on the same page with respect to schedule and budget.
