QUESTIONS TO ASK BEFORE HIRING A KITCHEN REMODELER
By Janet Myers | May 17, 2018
It’s easy to be tempted by what’s currently popular when remodeling your kitchen, but keep in mind, trendier choices can make your kitchen look outdated in just a few years. Aside from design options, there are a number of other items you should consider before you make major changes. Explore the three most important questions to ask yourself before you call a remodeler.
- What is my budget? The first thing you need to decide is how much you can and want to spend. Your budget needs to dictate the rest of the renovation, so pin down the number before you start anything else. It can be easy to lose track of your finances when you start seeing design options, so it’s important to tell your designer your budget range up front. An expert design team, like the one at David Gray, will work with you to scale your design dreams to your budget.
- What is the scope of my project? Determine how much you want changed before you start the process. A new countertop is easier than a full kitchen remodel or the installation of a new island. Create a checklist of everything you would like to change. Your renovations list will determine how much you spend, how long the renovation takes, and the company you choose to remodel your kitchen.
- What projects are most important to me? Organize your kitchen remodel into a list of projects from most to least important. Big budget items like cabinets and countertops quickly eat up a design budget, so know what’s a must-do before you start remodeling your home.
- Who will best meet my needs? Your project list will help dictate the company that’s your best fit. For example, if you’ve been dreaming of a subway tile backsplash, you need to make sure the company has experience with that type of job. And while price is an important consideration, make sure to also heavily research any contender’s reputation and professionalism. This is a big job and you want someone you can trust to bring your vision to life.
Once you have these questions answered, you can start the fun part of renovations. If you’re ready to start the process, give our talented David Gray Design Studio team a call at 904-224-5971.
