Do you feel like a kitchen remodel is out of reach? It’s understandable to have some anxiety about undertaking any large home remodeling project, but there is unfortunately a lot of misinformation about what’s actually involved in the kitchen remodeling process. Here are just a few of the most common myths surrounding kitchen remodels.
Myth #1: A Kitchen Remodel is Simply Too Expensive
The price of a kitchen remodeling project is going to depend largely on choosing the right products that fit your budget. There are actually many quality material choices that come in at an affordable price point. If you put off a remodeling indefinitely, you are not only living at a disadvantage, but could be creating more headaches for yourself when it comes time to sell your home.
Myth #2: “I Don’t Need a Designer”
Although not every kitchen project requires a designer, they can help us to see the bigger picture while overseeing the entire project. For example, if your builder doesn’t inspect the ceiling prior to work, you might end up with mismatched cabinets and visible duct-work. An expert designer can save you a lot of money, and help you keep your sanity, too. At Kitchen and Bath Depot, our designer works with you to come up with solutions that fit your kitchen’s unique needs.
Myth #3: There’s Always Tomorrow
Many homeowners make the mistake of cutting corners to save money on a kitchen renovation. According to a study by the Research for Cooking & Kitchen Intelligence, 40% of homeowners wish they had spent more money on their kitchen remodeling, particularly in adding more organizational features. Pots and pan organizers, roll-out pantries, cabinets — these are the kind of things that make cooking a breeze and improve efficiency. While some things can be added later, a kitchen remodeling is the optimal time to get them done.
Myth #4: Bigger Is Always Better
If money is an issue, choosing quality over quantity can go a long way toward designing a better kitchen. Too many homeowners make the mistake of either leaving too much space in their kitchen, or simply ignoring the laws of physics altogether. A good kitchen is a balance between form and function, but more often than not storage will trump style. If you rip out your pantry to install lovely butler area, for example, you may end up with no space for storing everyday goods. A professional designer can help make these decisions easier.
