The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in any home, for both practical and social reasons. This space is where you prepare the food you need to keep your body nourished and healthy, and it’s frequently also a space where you nourish your spirit by spending time with your loved ones. Our team here at G2 Contracting wants to help you make your kitchen the best it can be. We provide expert kitchen renovations that will breathe new life into your space and give you the function and beauty you deserve. However, we also know that kitchen renovations are a major undertaking, and in this article, we’ll go over three things to consider before you get started in order to make the process as smooth as possible.
- Layout- One of the most important things to consider before beginning kitchen renovations is the layout of your new design, as this will have a huge impact on your workflow. Are your sink, stovetop, and refrigerator fine where they are, or do you want to move them? Do you want to open up any walls, and is doing so even possible? Knowing these answers ahead of time will help the design process go faster and the project progress smoothly.
- Plumbing and Ventilation- If you do choose to move any appliances like your stove or refrigerator, then you need to keep your plumbing and ventilation in mind. We at G2 Contracting recommend that you not commit to such plans without consulting with a professional designer or architect first to find out whether it’s feasible to install the necessary pipes or air ducts.
- Flooring- The last consideration that we’ll go over here is your kitchen flooring. Kitchen floors are subject to a lot of spills and stains, so keep that in mind when making your selection of materials. If you’re not installing new flooring but do plan to change the layout, check to make sure that the floor actually runs under the cabinets to make sure that you won’t leave any awkward holes.
We at G2 Contracting hope that this guide helps you during your planning process. If you want further assistance with your kitchen renovations, just give us a call to consult with one of our experts.
