6 Questions to Ask Yourself Before a Kitchen Renovation
Kitchen renovations in Calgary are a lot of work, but they can also be easy & enjoyable. The key to having fun along the way and to getting your dream kitchen at the end is the preparation. At Bond Contracting and Construction Inc., we specialize in Calgary kitchen renovations.
Here are some questions that our experts recommend you ask yourself before jumping into a kitchen renovation project.
1. What Kind of Kitchen Layout do I Want?
A kitchen renovation presents the perfect opportunity to get the layout that works best for you and your family. Ask yourself whether you use your kitchen strictly for cooking or as more of a general entertainment area. Would you like it to be more open to the rest of the living space or do you value privacy while you cook? Considerations such as these are crucial for successful kitchen renovations in Calgary.
2. How Much Counter Space Do I need?
Do you often find that you're running out of places to put small appliances or to prep meals? If so, then you need more counter space. Even a smaller space can be optimized to give you more room for counters if planned right.
3. How Much Storage Space do I Need?
Storage space is just as important as having enough space on the counters. Consider whether you want enough room to put away all of your kitchen tools and small appliances or whether some are okay to leave sitting out. The way you make use of your existing storage space can help inform your new kitchen layout.
4. How Am I Going to Light the Space?
Having proper lighting in the kitchen is important for prep work and cooking, so make sure you plan your lighting layout carefully. A bright ceiling fixture might be enough, but many potlights is the key to great lighting in the kitchen as well.
5. Are There Any Building Codes I Should Be Aware Of?
Kitchen renovations in Calgary need to follow building codes and could require permits. Your contractor can let you know what building codes you need to be aware of so that you can plan accordingly, as well as what specific permits you may need.
6. How Much Should I Really Attempt to do Myself?
In this age of DIY, many people want to tackle home renovation projects on their own, usually to save money. Kitchen renovations in Calgary, however, should be left up to the pros. If you don't have experience in construction, then you could end up spending more money in the long run fixing problems or changing a kitchen that isn't up to code.
