When renovating your kitchen, there are a few questions that will cross your mind. Apart from the actual style and materials that you will choose, there are other aspects of the remodel that are also of concern. Here are three top questions that many homeowners are faced with.
How much should I budget?
Knowing how much a remodel will cost is one of the first steps you will need to take during the planning process. The cost will depend on several factors. Firstly, the size of the kitchen will determine the amount of materials needed. It will also depend on just how much you want to change in your kitchen. If you want to replace your worktops, it will not cost as much as if you want to replace all of your cabinets and flooring too. If you are planning on adding features like a kitchen island, you will need to budget for these additions too.
What will cost the most?
Again, it will depend on your plans and exactly what you want to replace or add. Appliances can cost a fair amount but they are an investment. Quality stone worktops sometimes cost more than flooring but it depends on the materials and their quality.
How long will renovations take?
The more work there is to be done, the longer the renovations will take. It is important that they are not rushed but this does not mean that you have to put up with prolonged disruptions. Make a list of all of the things that need to be done. Ask your contractor or contractors what needs to be done first. Then you can ask them how long each part of the renovations will take. You can plan your schedule around their estimations.
Don’t be afraid to ask your suppliers and contractors questions. Having your questions answered before you begin is the perfect way to set your mind at ease.
