They make it look so fun and easy on TV!  But for most of us, however, the reality is that we don’t have a team of experts descending on our homes while we head off on vacation for a week, only to return to a completely renovated, picture-perfect house.  The design team at Carole Kitchen Design Studio offers these tips for people who are getting ready for a kitchen remodel.

1. Work with a kitchen designer
2. Evaluate your current kitchen
3. Do some homework

4. Determine a budget
5. Plan your timeline
6. Hire an experienced kitchen remodeler

 

Let’s take a look at each of these steps in more detail…

1. Work with a kitchen designer

Work with a certified kitchen designer, like the team at Carole’s, that is trained and experienced in the details of kitchen cabinetry, counters, lighting, and more.  Be sure to assess the customer service at the kitchen studios you are considering.  Can you be assured of focused attention when you meet with your designer?  Is the designer and their company responsive, approachable, and accessible.  Will you meet with one designer consistently, or will you get bounced from person to person?  Will you be interrupted by noisy overhead pages and other customers’ questions in a busy home center chain?  Is there a team behind your designer to support you? 

2. Evaluate your current kitchen

Before you begin your kitchen remodeling project it is important to evaluate your current space and determine how the remodeled room will be used. Do you like the layout? Do you want to relocate your appliances? Do you want to expand the area and open up the space? The expert design team and Carole’s can help you optimize your layout and maximize your space to create a fantastic kitchen.

3. Do some homework

Browse through photos like ours here: photo gallery to determine which images best represent your personal style and taste.  Find pictures from magazines or websites like Houzz and Pinterest that you like.  But don’t panic if you are unsure about your design style.  Your Carole’s kitchen designer will guide you through the entire process and help you identify the look and style that best reflects you and your family.  By having one of the largest showrooms in Massachusetts with over 20 kitchen displays, Carole’s gives clients access to significantly more door styles than big box stores, and we offer all popular types of counters in hundreds of colors.

4. Determine a budget

Deciding how much to invest in your new kitchen is one of the most important decisions you will make during the remodeling process.  Not sure how much you should invest in your new kitchen?  Don’t worry, your Carole’s kitchen designer will work with you determine a realistic investment figure for your new kitchen.  Carole’s sells many different brands of cabinetry to meet the needs of every customer.

5. Plan your timeline

Home design television shows have helped many people feel less intimidated by undertaking major home improvement projects. But on the other hand, sometimes people can underestimate the time needed to get from the concepts and planning stage to completion. Designing your new kitchen will take some careful planning and attention to detail. Depending on the scope of your project, kitchen remodeling projects can take from several weeks to several months. Your certified Carole’s kitchen designer will guide you through the entire process – including the styling choices to create a kitchen layout and look that’s perfect for you and your family!

6. Hire an experienced kitchen remodeler

You are welcome to hire anyone you want for your kitchen remodeling project, or you can choose from one of many experienced kitchen remodeling firms that Carole’s has worked with in the past.
