3 Kitchen Remodel Mistakes You Don’t Want To Make

2016 has proven to be a wonderful year for kitchen remodeling! However, if you are planning to fix up your kitchen this year, there are a few costly mistakes you do not want to make.

Mistake 1: Forgetting Functionality

While style is definitely an important part of your kitchen remodel with your choice of colors and fun backsplash tiles, you need to think about functionality too. A kitchen is an important part of your home and one that needs to be able to handle the wear and tear of daily cooking, cleaning, and rowdy children and pets. So while you may fall in love with a certain type of countertops or sink, you should consider durability, energy efficiency, and how much maintenance will be required.

Mistake 2: Getting Hung Up On A Single Element

For a successful kitchen remodel, you will need to make sure you have a balanced budget handy. If you spend too much on your appliances, your countertops may end up suffering. If you go for the pricy flooring, you may need to cut back on your cabinets or lighting fixtures. In order for you to ‘have it all’, you need to make sure you think clearly about the entire remodel rather than a single portion and get to know all your options.

Mistake 3: Skipping The Background Check

Did you know that almost 20 percent of general contractors do not have a state license or insurance? In fact, 9 percent of them lack both. If you hire a contractor without the proper credentials, you will be giving up certain protections and are likely to find yourself with a poorly remodeled kitchen to look at.
