By Blue Corona Dev Dec 7, 2015
Your CT kitchen remodeling project is an exciting time to have the kitchen you have always wanted. Whether you are wanting to remodel for design or if you need better functionality, there are a few mistakes you should avoid.
Don’t Be Too Meticulous
Unexpected qualities happen when remodeling your home and not everything will go exactly the way you expected. Keep an open mind and make a budget plan with a little wiggle room. Problems will more than likely come up and if you quiver over every little component that may not go perfectly, you’ll go insane trying to make it perfect. Work with your contractor to make sure you are communicating regularly and a professional contractor will keep you informed if a problem occurs.
Don’t Skip the Basics
The basics are important but sometimes people get excited and want to skip over important aspects like budgeting and choosing which appliances you want before the project is finished. Don’t skip over the budget you may know what total you have altogether but certain pieces can cost more than you may have imagined. Sit down and plan out what you were looking for in your CT kitchen remodel. Remember to do some research and make a column for miscellaneous for the costs that arise unexpectedly. Also, it is important to choose the appliances you are wanting for the remodel so your contractor can effectively size the room and appliance spaces appropriately.
Don’t Rush/Delay It
Work with your contractor on the timeline of your kitchen remodel. There needs to be a balance between getting the project done and taking the time to do it right. When you rush the plans, you are bound to make mistakes or go over budget. Take your time to envision your design but don’t delay too long pushing it off until you have a kitchen half completed. When creating your budget plan also come up with a realistic timeline and work with your contractor to see how long they think the project will take.
Don’t Be Unreachable
You don’t want to get in the way of the remodeling project but it’s important that there is constant communication between you and your contractor. It’s an important aspect to have a good relationship knowing you can reach the other whenever needed. Your contractor ;may need to talk to you about a certain part of the remodeling process or if an issue has occurred.
Don’t Expect to Use Your Kitchen Until Finished
You may be excited and want to use your new kitchen or maybe you don’t have a kitchen anywhere else. Make arrangements beforehand so the project can be completed. Trying to use the kitchen before it is ready can mess with different wiring or plumbing issues. You can end up having to fix things that were used that were not ready to be used. Make a plan while your kitchen is being remodeled so the project can fully be completed correctly.
