Questions To Ask Before Planning a Kitchen Remodeling Project

Kitchen Remodeling

What does your dream kitchen look like?

At Creative Spaces, we understand that the kitchen is the heart of every home. It’s a place where you spend time catching up with the kids over breakfast, a place you entertain houseguests, and the place you cook and prepare all of your meals. So much of life is spent in the kitchen, and we understand that when it comes to your remodeling project, the product needs to be a space that you truly love.  Before you embark on your remodeling journey, ask yourself these important questions first.

How Do You Primarily Use Your Kitchen?

Do you cook and entertain in the kitchen, or is it used as a functional space? Do your kids throw their jackets on the kitchen chairs? Do you eat your breakfast at the center island?

These questions are important to ask when determining how the space will be allocated and what items will take precedence when remodeling. If you prefer privacy while you cook, a smaller kitchen with a tighter work triangle may be perfect for you. If you see the kitchen as a place to entertain, a more open floor plan may be the better option.

How Many People Will Be In the Kitchen Normally?

This question will help our designers determine the general layout of the kitchen design. Is your family on the larger side of the spectrum? Is the kitchen typically inhabited by you and maybe one other? A sustainable workstation should be designed that caters to your specific needs. You don’t want to be bumping into each other, and you want to take complete advantage of the space!

How Much Space Do You Need For Storage?

How much storage space do you truly need? If your family’s meals focus on packaged goods and snacks for lunches then a large pantry may be necessary for your lifestyle. If the majority of your storage can be contained in the refrigerator and a few cabinets, then more space can be allocated for other usages.

What Makes Your Family Unique?

How does your family spend time in the kitchen? Do your kids use it as a space for homework? Do you and your partner enjoy sharing a glass of wine at the table late at night? All of these aspects of your household that makes it unique will be factored into the design process. Let Creative Spaces be your remodeling therapists, allow us to build your dream kitchen!

  1. I like that you suggest to think about how you use your kitchen to base your ideas off of when deciding how they new kitchen should look and be set up. I can see why this would help you know where things should go and what is most important. My friend just remodeled her kitchen in the fall. Because she loves to cook for her family, she got two ovens put in.

  2. Hi,
    Thanks for this nice informative post. Here, in an addition to all the above-mentioned points regarding the remodelling of a kitchen, also the matter of fact need to mention about the kitchen triangle, where, you need to maintain that as a unique decor. Lastly, definitely, the best cost factor on which we as a customer can build a trust on the service agencies.
