With so many homeowners around the area getting ready for the winter holidays, kitchen remodeling in Scottsdale, AZ is in full swing. However, for every positive remodeling idea comes a negative remodeling idea, which is why we’ve put together a list of Scottsdale kitchen remodeling dos and don’ts!
Make storage a priority: This is something many homeowners neglect when planning for their new kitchen. Your new kitchen can have some of the most modern design, but without the addition of proper storage, it’s just an open space with an oven and refrigerator! Make your life easier by extending your cabinets up to your ceiling, or by adding storage space to an island or oven area.
Keep it open: Another frequent error when remodeling a kitchen comes in the form of excess “stuff.” With too many additions, your kitchen can easily become cluttered. You want your kitchen remodel to open things up to allow for you, your family, and your guests to congregate and interact with each other without having to feel too stuffy. Allow your new kitchen to be inviting!
Invest in new appliances: If you’re prepared to spend the money for a quality kitchen remodel, you should be ready to invest in some new appliances. Sticking with your old machines might continue to make your kitchen look outdated, so go with some new, top-of-the-line products to really make your remodel pop.
Rush the planning process: Many homeowners think that remodeling their kitchen is a quick and easy process and make a plan without any real idea of what they’re expecting. It’s important to really take the time during the planning process of your new kitchen to ensure the highest quality outcome.
Stop being creative: Remodeling your kitchen should be fun! This is your chance to really make the most of a project you’ve been wanting to do for a while, so be creative, ask questions, and keep an open mind. One of the worst things you could do when remodeling your kitchen is be boring.
Pinch Pennies: A quality kitchen remodel (or any remodel for that matter) will cost money. It’s important to realize that you’re paying for quality services and products, especially when working with Arlington Custom Builders. If you want the best possible outcome for your new kitchen, you’re going to have to prepare yourself to spend the money.
