Renovations

Remodelling your kitchen can often seem like a daunting task, especially if you have never undergone a kitchen renovation before. At Alderidge Construction, we know that, if done well, a kitchen renovation can have a big impact on the hub of your home and can help increase your home’s value. That is why our expert team has put together a list of things to consider before remodelling a kitchen to help you start your home renovation project off on the right foot.

Find out what home renovations add the most value.

1. Budget

One of the biggest things that you will need to consider before remodelling your kitchen is how much money you are willing to spend on the project. A new kitchen can be a huge investment so make sure to talk to a professional about which updates will add the most value to your home. It is also a good idea to consider ways in which you might be able to save money during the project, such as financing options for appliances and cabinetry.

2. Layout

If you are happy with the current layout of your kitchen, keeping the major appliances and plumbing and electrical systems in the same place can help save time and money spent on the renovation. If you are wanting to change the kitchen’s layout, make sure to take functionality into consideration when coming up with a new layout to ensure that there is enough space for everything you want to incorporate.

3. Lifestyle

Your overall lifestyle will play a huge role in the overall design of your new kitchen. If you love entertaining friends and family, consider enlarging your kitchen space or adding in an island with additional seating. If you love to cook or bake, consider spending a little bit more on top-of-the-line appliances.

4. Timeframe

When thinking about the timeframe for your kitchen remodel, it is important to be realistic. While your general contractor will provide you with a time estimate for the entire project, it is always a good idea to keep in mind that the job might take longer than planned if major complications arise. It is also important to keep in mind that you will not have a kitchen to cook in during the construction process. Consider planning ahead to know where you will be getting your meals from at this time or setting aside extra money to order out.

5. Permits

Depending on what kind of upgrades you are thinking about making to your kitchen, you may be required to get permits before completing the work. While your general contractor will be able to obtain all of the necessary permits for you, it is important to know what permits are required so that you can ensure your project will comply with the proper building codes and regulations.
