Home remodeling projects are a 300+ billion dollar business in the United States. If you are looking to do a kitchen remodeling project in 2018, Fayetteville Granite has some tips to help you get started.

Put together a wish list of what you want to accomplish with your kitchen remodel. Are you looking for more room space? Do you need more storage? Would you like updated appliances? Is one of your goals to replace your outdated countertops with granite, marble or quartz countertops? The more specific you can be in writing your list, the easier the next part will be.

Set your budget. Before you begin any kitchen remodeling project, you need to have a very clear idea of how much money you are willing to invest in it. Failure to have an accurate dollar estimate of how much your kitchen remodeling project will cost very well could cause you heartache before the project is over, let alone cause major delays.

Do your research. As soon as you know your wishlist and have a working budget to go along with it, begin to do research on materials you want to incorporate and the best places to get them. Will you have to special order those granite countertops? Does a home appliance store a little further away offer major savings on the appliances you want? How will you have to change the structure of your kitchen to achieve the floorplan you desire? Doing your research in the beginning will help your project go much smoother.

Be flexible. The majority of people who embark on kitchen remodeling journeys will tell you that their plans did not go exactly the way they intended in the beginning. Keep an open mind during your kitchen remodel, and it may come out even better than you had imagined!

Every year at about this time, our team at Fayetteville Granite starts to get calls and visits from homeowners who are looking to do some type of kitchen remodeling project. While we get excited about doing what we love, and look forward to helping homeowners achieve the kitchen space they long for, we try to warn them of some common kitchen remodeling mistakes that we have seen happen way too often in the past. If you are considering your own kitchen remodeling project, consider these words of advice and then give Fayetteville Granite a call to get started.

Have a vision. Too many eager homeowners have started their kitchen remodel without fully fleshing out their vision. Don’t just consider what new appliances you would like, or paint color. Go beyond the type of countertops or cabinets you want. Think bigger than a new floor. Envision the way you want your kitchen to flow. Stand in your current kitchen space and write down what you like and what you would like to see different. Putting your plan into action will be a lot simpler the more detailed you are about what you want from the very beginning.

Have a budget. Have a realistic budget from the start. Do some research to get an idea of what your kitchen renovations will cost on average and then plan for some wiggle room within that budget. Trust us, this is important.

Have an open mind. You know what you want, and we want to see you get exactly that. We cannot tell you how often we have customers come in with a specific vision and leave with an even better plan because they were open to new ideas or suggestions. They think they want a certain cabinet style but then come in and see one they like better. A professional can introduce you to affordable, stylish options that you may not have even thought of.

At Fayetteville Granite, we work for our clients. If you are thinking about starting your own kitchen remodeling project, give our professionals a call at (910) 483-0468 or come in to see us at our Raeford Road location in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
