Things to Consider Before Your Kitchen Remodel


The kitchen is called the “nerve center” of the house for a reason. It’s a central room for cooking, dining, gathering, and talking with others about the day. This important space needs to reflect your lifestyle, while featuring a décor consistent with the rest of your home.

There are several important details to consider before starting your kitchen remodel.

The size of your kitchen will determine its future layout. Do you need to expand the square-footage of your kitchen by removing a wall? Is there enough room for storage and appliances? Will you be adding extra seating, a new sink, or kitchen island? Southwestern Remodeling can help answer these and other questions that are crucial to a successful kitchen remodel.

Before beginning a kitchen remodel, it’s important to think about electrical and plumbing requirements. Can your kitchen accommodate the necessary outlets for new appliances, lighting options, and other technology?

In order to maximize the flow and efficiency of your kitchen, you need to consider how you want to move in the space. Are counters, windows, and doors in the right spot? What layout works best for your cooking routine? Is there enough room when more than one person is cleaning or cooking? Make a list of the things you like about your kitchen, and what you would like to improve in the remodel.

Instead of getting too carried away with a “wish list,” think about how a kitchen remodel can help improve your actual lifestyle. How often do you entertain? How big is your household? Do you cook large meals often? Do you need a large food preparation counter and sink?
