Interior Design Tips for Your Kitchen Renovation

The planning and creation of your new kitchen is an exciting time but if you don’t plan and prepare for it properly, it can quickly turn into a nightmare. As excited as you may be for the renovation, it can also be a chaotic and stressful experience. Keeping the following tips in mind when undertaking a kitchen remodel can help keep the chaos at bay and the sleepless nights away.


Create a Mood Board

Deciding on a style you love and making it come to life in your new kitchen is most certainly an exciting part of remodeling. Out with the old and in with the new is as good as taking a vacation! Before the project begins, create a mood board of what you want your kitchen to look like, the colors and materials you want included and finishing touches you want added. You can create a physical mood board on a piece of project board, a pin board or do it digitally and craft one online

Source Quotes for Your Budget

The best design tip for remodeling your kitchen would be to create a functional budget and stick to it. You don’t want to start the project and run out of funds to complete it, which happens quite a lot. It is imperative to create a budget, keep it up to date and to stick to it. It is unfortunately part of your project management duties. Source at least three quotes per item or task to see more or less what you can expect to pay and construct a budget this way. Once you have sourced enough quotes, you will be ready to find a contractor to turn your kitchen into one of your dreams. Keeping within your budget will benefit your pocket and your blood pressure!

Focus on the Details

When planning a kitchen remodel or renovation, one often forgets about the details such as lighting applications, flooring, and window treatments because you are so focused on the counters, cabinets and appliances. Ideally, these aspects should be included in your mood board to incorporate the total look and feel you are striving for. 

Get Rid of the Clutter

Another great tip for your kitchen renovation is to take this opportunity to get rid of the unwanted, unused and broken items you have accumulated in your kitchen for years. Now is the time to tackle that drawer that you throw things into when you have nowhere else to home them. Make three piles of items to trash, donate and keep. Making space for your new items, and decluttering your kitchen in general, adds to the aesthetic and keeps your new remodeled space clean and tidy.

Once your kitchen revamp is underway, remember to not rush the process as rushed projects can turn into costly mistakes and do-overs. Keeping these handy tips in mind when you are ready to start on your kitchen project will help you achieve the kitchen of your dreams.
