Kitchen Remodeling Success Tip #2: Timeframe

An important consideration in every kitchen remodeling project is your timeframe. You may have a high sense of urgency to complete your kitchen makeover as quickly as possible so as to minimize disruptions to your family’s routines.

However, it’s important to be realistic about the amount of time needed to thoroughly plan the details and elements of your kitchen makeover to ensure that you are happy with the final outcome.

You and your family members will need to make key decisions on multiple elements that will go into your new kitchen, including:

  • Paint colors
  • Flooring materials and finishes
  • Countertop materials and selections
  • Kitchen cabinetry styles, materials, and selections
  • Kitchen appliances and accessories

Your kitchen remodeling choices must also be coordinated with the building contractor who will have his own timeline for scheduling and installing your kitchen elements, so it’s essential that decisions be made in a timely manner to avoid costly project management delays.

Chances are, you will need to invest more time than you anticipated in planning for your kitchen remodeling project.

The more you communicate your desires, preferences, choices and expectations up front to your kitchen designer and building contractor, the better your chances of being delighted with the final outcome of your kitchen remodel.
