Do you want to remodel your kitchen but do not know where do you should begin? Maybe you think you need more space or you simply want to refurbish and enhance the room. You might have been at this stage for a while now, but you have no idea how to get started. We at Perfect Painting & Remodeling are ready to help.
So, let’s say you are ready to begin remodeling now. Here are the steps we would recommend:
Step 1: Consider Your Basic Needs
Write down everything you will need in your kitchen based on the number of persons in the family, your cooking practices and your future plans. Get ideas from your friends and family and get photos of the style you think suits you. Perfect Painting & Remodeling can help you figure this out.
Step 2: Do Some Investigations and Strategize
At this stage you will have mostly made up your mind about how much work you want done. Do you want a complete remodel or maybe just a few renovations? Well that also depends on your budget. So at this stage you will start to get an idea how much you want to spend, and how far you want to go.
Step 3: Think About and Locate the Necessary Professionals
Even if you are doing it yourself, you will need to know where to locate the necessary stores and maybe rely on a little advice from a sales clerk. You can also seek the advice of friends or colleagues; however, keep in mind that there are professionals available for almost any purpose. You can speak to us at Perfect Painting & Remodeling if you want some professional assistance or advice.
Step 4: Draw a Diagram
At this stage you want a simple sketch that will show floor size, cabinet size and other layout sizes. This will help you to concretize your plans and figure out what materials will go where. You can do it yourself, but if you hire a seasoned professional, he or she should provide this.
Step 5: Textures and Finishes
At this stage you are thinking about the textures and finishes for the renovation. So make a decision about typical items like:
- Doors and cabinets
Step 6: Finalize Design and Required Documents
You will probably need a professional at this stage, especially if you need a permit. This is the stage where you have finalized your design plans and your textures and finishes. If you need approval for the project, make sure to account for the lead time.
Step 7: Get Contractor Estimates
At this stage you probably have definitely decided whether or not you are using a contractor. If you are, you need to get estimates. Get about three, but always remember that quality costs you less in the long run. If your contractor hasn’t seen the design, show them and let them give you a quote. Perfect Painting & Remodeling will guarantee quality at a reasonable cost.
Step 8: Get Ready for the Day
At this stage, the moment of truth has come, and you have to decide logistics, especially when it comes to the members of your household. Discuss all of the details pertaining to you and your family on that day so everything can be worked out. Preparation of the workspace will have to be made.
Step 9: The End and the Review
At this stage, the work is basically over and you need to inspect. This is again a time for taking notes alongside your contractor. This clean up phase may last a few days, as you find small things not in place. Perfect Painting & Remodeling considers this a critical stage in ensuring our customer’s satisfaction.
