    Kitchen Remodeling Checklist

    Your kitchen attracts a crowd whether you are entertaining guests, cooking, or just hanging out. Taking
    on a kitchen remodeling project is a great way to update the most popular room. Most remodeling
    projects have the added benefit of increasing a return on your investment. But getting started can be
    difficult. That’s why Chicagoland Remodeling created this kitchen remodeling checklist to help you get

    Make a List of Kitchen Features

    Get started on your project by making a list of the things you need to consider. You may have features
    you like and don’t want to change. Or you may want to change everything. No matter where you are on
    the spectrum, start with a list of the things you want to accomplish with a kitchen remodeling project.
    Here are the main areas you’ll want to think about redesigning your kitchen.

    • Cabinets
    • Countertops
    • Backsplash
    • Sink
    • Plumbing
    • Flooring
    • Wall
    • coverings/painting
    • Appliances
    • Windows
    • Lighting

    Working from this list will help guide you through your kitchen remodel. You’ll know what features you
    want to focus on and how to budget for them.

    Choose Kitchen Materials

    Your contractor may ask you some questions about the types of materials you prefer. You have
    abundant options when thinking about each section of the kitchen. Flooring may be carpet, laminate,
    tile, or wood. For countertops you can choose from granite, marble, tile, and other materials. Start
    thinking about the materials you want to use for each area and discuss their practicality and function
    with a Chicagoland Remodeling professional Kitchen Remodeling Checklist.

    Choose a Kitchen Design

    After you have some general ideas about what you want, start looking at the bigger picture. How do you
    want your kitchen to function? Think about the appliances and workspaces. Here is a shorter kitchen
    remodeling checklist to help.

    • Appliances: Do you want counter-depth, slide-in, or built-in styles?
    • Configurations: What kitchen shape do you want: galley style, L-shaped, U-shaped?
    • Workspaces: Do you want a kitchen island? Open or closed cabinetry?

    Color Scheme and Design

    You may have not thought about a color scheme yet, that’s why it’s on the list. Colors are important,
    and they influence everything. Our wall color influences the shade of your cabinets, countertop design
    choices, and your appliance color choice. For instance, you may want to go with all stainless or all black
    appliances. But not if you need more color to brighten the area. If your wall color choice is bright, you
    can use darker neutralizing colors for other kitchen elements to balance it all out.

    Plan for Life Without a Kitchen

    What are you going to do if you need to survive without a fully functioning kitchen for a little while?
    Start making some plans now to make the transition easier. Think about using alternative cooking
    methods like an outdoor grill, crockpots, and microwaves. You may want to use disposable dinnerware
    temporarily until everything is back up and running. Where will you store dishes, utensils, and small
    appliances while the remodeling is being done?
