A kitchen is where the heart is. It’s where families and friends gather to share a meal and make everlasting memories. Whether it’s a fancy Thanksgiving dinner or scrambling to make coffee on your way out in the morning, your kitchen is a space in which you spend a lot of time, so why not have it be perfect for you?
Some people want to remodel, they just don’t know where to start! These tips can help:
- Design-build firm
A design-build firm consists of electric, plumbing, and opening up the space by tearing down a wall or two. They can also install flooring and have many connections to contractors, designers, and can get you all the appliances you need.
- Kitchen designer
So you have an idea of what you want your dream kitchen to look like. Contact a kitchen designer to help you bring that idea to life and exceed your expectations down to the very last detail. A kitchen designer pays attention to aesthetics, your style, entertainment and cooking habits, trends, and most importantly, YOUR vision.
- General Contractor
So you know exactly what you want your kitchen to look like, you just need the materials and tools to get started. General contractor’s are responsible for providing all the necessities like equipment, machinery, and labor to bring your vision to life.
*Note* Hiring a contractor and a kitchen designer at the same time can be costly and not always beneficial. Do some research to find contractors that are consistent with their high quality work.
- Big-box Store
Big box stores like Home Depot, Lowes, and Ikea are great because they offer customers with the whole package. Customers can choose a design they like given the products sold at the store, assemble all of the pieces they want right then and there or can be assisted with design, receive financing details, and are reasonably priced.
- High-end design firm
If price is a main concern and you want the highest quality service, construction, and design then a high-end design firm is for you. A high-end design firm will not only execute your vision with absolute grace, they will take it to the next level of appeal. Your kitchen will really be a staple wow factor if you choose to go in this direction.
- Specialty kitchen store
These stores are similar to Home Depot and Ikea, but consist of certified kitchen professionals trained for remodeling and catering to your design wants and needs. If you are looking for that extra bit of personalized touch, a specialty kitchen store is where you should go!
If you have not only a vision but a plan on executing it yourself, why not do it! If you’ve got the time, passion, and love to complete projects on your own, this is a great option. It’s also the most cost efficient way to go!
