Tips-To-Know On How To Renovate Your Kitchen
In our new weekly series called 10 Things Nobody Tells You, we unpack remodeling basics that first-timers might not know. And, reveal a few things even seasoned renovators might find surprising. In this week’s installment, we’re tackling one of the biggest projects homeowners might face: How To Renovate Your Kitchen.
So, what is there to wait for?
How To Renovate Your Kitchen?
Think about the Visitors
Consider that cliché icebreaker question: Who would you invite to a dinner party? More specifically: Will you be hosting elaborate dinners for eight every weekend? Or feeding small kids every night? Or dining solo? Do you bake or cook or both? Imagining your cooking needs and who will be using your kitchen will help you make remodeling decisions, like how many ovens you need.
Choosing your Countertops
You’ll also need to imagine your future self in your kitchen when choosing your countertops. If you’re okay with material that requires maintenance (and won’t always look perfect), you might go for marble or soapstone. If you’re on a budget, though, those might be out of reach.
When choosing a faucet, you might be inclined to choose a standard deck-mounted model and not think much about it. But daring to install a wall-mounted faucet, as Julie did in her Brooklyn Heights apartment, is a small choice that can make a big impact. For one thing, it’ll be much easier to keep the area around your sink clean and dry.
Ikea Kitchen Cabinets
There are a lot of cabinet styles out there. Don’t get buried under dozens of choices. When it comes to hardwearing and timeless styles, there are only six types of cabinets you need to know. If you want something affordable that still feels custom, a slew of new companies are hacking Ikea cabinets.
Buy Pre-owned Appliances
Think of kitchen appliances like cars: as soon as they leave the showroom, they depreciate. Fortunately, you can source hardworking, lightly used appliances at a fraction of the cost, as many homeowners and designers we know have done. And before you start looking for a fridge, ask yourself: How often do you go to the grocery store? Do you like to make and freeze meals in bulk? Do you have a petite kitchen? For guidance on what fridge is best for you, consult How To Buy A Refrigerator.
