Kitchen Remodel FAQ

If you have been using your kitchen for some time now, you want to remodel the way it looks or upgrade those old appliances. Whatever the case, there are a lot of questions and decisions to make before you start tearing up the floorboards and pulling out walls. To help you answer some of the biggest questions that come to mind when you decide to remodel your kitchen, we’ve compiled this guide on the top Kitchen Remodel FAQs.

Why does it cost so much to remodel a kitchen?

It depends on what you’re doing. Some of the most expensive parts are gutting the old kitchen and building an entirely new one from scratch. Other services such as painting the cabinets or installing new appliances are relatively inexpensive. The biggest cost is time; if you hire professionals to do everything, they’ll tell you that your kitchen will take several months to complete. If you’re working with friends, family members, and contractors who can give you a hand on some days and let you do other things on others (like when they happen to work in your area at their other jobs), it can go faster. However, it will take several hours to a day or two per week per person.

What can go wrong when remodeling your kitchen?

Many things can go wrong with a kitchen remodel. The most obvious ones are problems related to the construction process. If you’re remodeling your home yourself or have a good DIYer helping you, you’ll need to find a way to get rid of all the dirt and debris generated by doing this work. Otherwise, your family and pets could be dealing with a big mess for months on end. Dust can settle everywhere, and you’ll hear lots of banging noises as workers build cabinets, walls, and countertops. Depending on the location of your kitchen, it might affect other parts of your property.

How many kitchen cabinets do I need?

That will depend on your existing furniture in the room and the layout of your room itself. You can choose from various styles: traditional, transitional, modern, and contemporary styles. To get an estimate on how many cabinets you need, you can either consult your local kitchen cabinet shop or get an estimate from a kitchen remodel contractor in Rhode Island.

How can I add value to my home with a kitchen remodel?

A kitchen upgrade can help increase property values by showing off your remodeling talents and design sense. A great kitchen will give you a space that’s perfect for family meals or entertaining, showcase your unique tastes and style, and could even help generate new leads for your own business if it’s a restaurant or a food truck! You’ll also stand out from your neighbors. Many kitchens look the same these days–white cabinets with gray countertops–but you can make yours stand out by adding some creativity to the mix.

What should I do with my old cabinets?

You have several choices here. You can give them away to a charity or sell them on reputable online sites. Some people can reuse their old cabinets when they remodel, but it’s not always possible; sometimes, the new cabinets don’t fit in place of the old ones.

How do I decide what material to get for my new flooring?

Flooring can be an expensive purchase. It’s a good idea to compare estimates from several suppliers and get samples of the ones you like. If you’re on a budget, stick with products that are easy to clean (like tile or stone) and resist stains (like wood). If you want to install an affordable but stylish material, consider vinyl. It’s almost as durable as hardwood but usually costs less.

How much space do I need in my kitchen?

You’ll need at least 18 inches of clearance in your kitchen so that you can open the door without hitting anything else along the way. That is also the minimum size that many contractors and installers will use to get cabinets into your kitchen. If you have a really small kitchen, you may need to consider using space in other areas of your home for storage.

Does it make sense to hire a kitchen designer?

If you are confused about what you want or how it will work out, it’s probably a good idea to talk with an interior designer. They can offer some helpful suggestions on layout and design while keeping in mind the constraints of your budget and the look and feel of your room. For example, they’ll notice if there’s an element of counter space blocked by a window or door and suggest moving it to use another area. The best interior designers will want to meet with you several times before you lay down any hard costs so that you can get a feel for how this might work out.
