Things to Know Before Remodelling Your Kitchen

Things to Know Before Remodelling Your Kitchen

Remodelling any room can feel like a daunting process, but the kitchen can feel like a big project to take on. It’s where everyone eats, chats and spends a large amount of their time. People must be fed!

Architects in Warrington are giving you 4 tips to take on board before starting your kitchen remodel, in order to make it a smooth sailing process.

Keep the Layout  

Keeping the existing layout is a great way for you to save money on your remodel. This doesn’t mean to say that you have to keep everything exactly where it is now, otherwise what would be the point in remodelling?

What architects in Warrington mean, is to keep appliances where they are. All the pipes to the sink and the wires to your appliances are already wired up and ready to go, and moving everything around is going to cost you more time and money than it’s worth.

Make it Bright

A great lighting plan can make a difference to your kitchen in the most dramatic way. If, like most older kitchens, your room is lacking in lights and windows, maybe it’s time to upgrade. Using layered lighting techniques can make a huge difference to your kitchen, for example – using under cabinet lights, spotlights and a big light in the middle of the room can make the biggest difference and make your kitchen look open and airy.

A great system to implement if you want to add a fair few lights to your kitchen is to make sure that all the switches are easy to find and are close together. Maybe even labelling them so you remember which is which for the first few weeks might be helpful.

The Bigger, the Better  

If, like a large majority of homeowners, you weren’t well endowed with a large kitchen and big appliances – good news! Making your kitchen bigger in your renovation won’t break the bank! For example, just breaking down the walls and making your kitchen open plan can make a huge difference in size and not leaving you out of pocket.

You could also add an extension to the end of your kitchen, rather than putting down a brand new foundation. This will save you a few pennies, rather than you adding a full addition.

If it Works, Keep It

You can save even more money by keeping onto everything that still applies to your new build. For example, keeping the original windows, doors and floors can save you hundreds of pounds, especially if they’re still in top condition!

Architects in Warrington say that even keeping your existing fixtures and appliances and in the same locations means you can keep the existing plumbing, saving you tonnes of money in the long-run.
