Where to start when planning a kitchen renovation

Whether you’re in a home that’s new to you and you want it to better reflect your personality, or you’ve owned your home for a while and want to upgrade, a kitchen renovation is a great place to start.

The beauty of a kitchen remodel is the ability to go big with a complete overhaul and finally get your dream kitchen. If so, the kitchen design experts at French’s Cabinet Gallery can help.

Here are a few tips to get you started on creating a solid plan.

Determine which elements need to be changed

The first step is to decide which elements of your kitchen need to be replaced or changed. If you’re envisioning a complete renovation, consider how flooring, appliances, countertops, cabinets, and other features will work together.

Decide on your new kitchen layout

Taking some time to research how you currently use your space and how you would like to use the area after the remodel will help you decide if your kitchen’s current layout works or if you want to move some aspects. Today, kitchens are often focal points of family life, serving as a place to gather for meals, do homework, entertain and much more. Open or partially open floor plans allow you to prepare meals and snacks without isolating yourself from family, friends and guests. However, private kitchens, which separate the sometimes messy task of cooking from dining and entertaining, are trending again. Do whatever suits your needs.

Draw your kitchen floor plan

Once you have determined the most functional and satisfactory layout, as well as which design elements need to be updated, you can draw a floor plan. Using a tape measure and grid paper, carefully measure both horizontally and vertically, then mark on the grid paper the dimensions of walls, the location of windows and appliances, and any obstructions such as pipes and vents that remain in place. You’ll also want to note things like gas and water lines and electrical outlets that can’t be easily moved. With a floor plan in hand, our designers can start by providing you with linear foot pricing to help you establish a cabinetry budget. If you decide to continue, we can provide you with a beautiful and highly functional cabinet design.

Dive into design ideas

If you haven’t already started exploring design concepts, now is the time to start. Browsing sites like Pinterest, Instagram and Houzz can provide inspiration. You may even discover new ideas to help you build a kitchen style that allows you to express your personality and meet your family’s needs in ways you never imagined.
