1. Open Up The Layout

The new world in 2022 is one where we work and educate remotely. We can connect and celebrate remotely. Life can be a constant struggle if our space doesn't accommodate our needs to work, play, rest, and remain organized.

When you're remodeling your kitchen, its important to consider a lot more than looks. 

  • First, who cooks the most often, and for how many?
  • Then, who works or studies in the kitchen or would like to if the seating/island was accommodating?
  • Finally, how do you want the kitchen to flow into surrounding rooms and the outside?

Answers to these questions will set the ideal standard for your new space. Now you are ready for feasibility and asking the structural engineering questions:

  1. First, can it be done?
  2. Second, if so, what would it take?
  3. Thirdly, do you need to hide a beam, would you like to consider steel framing instead of wood?
  4. Finally, does that strategy fit with the big picture?

An open layout is a gamechanger for how the family gathers and how company flows throughout your space. You will love how much larger your space feels if you take the leap and remove a wall or two.

3. Prepare For The Execution

After you've completed design and preparation, it's time to get dusty!

Next is demolition; demo will be quick, messy and loud. Even with HEPA vacuums and top of the line equipment, including air scrubbers, etc., the process of demolition is always messy. 

Additionally, it is wise to plan for 15% adjustment of the project calendar plus additional time for every change order or request for additional work.

The project timeline can get emotional at about 60% completion. Remember that if you're feeling uneasy or antsy, your superintendent can address every question and concern you have as long as you share it with him. 

You'll be done in no time at all and ready to party!

In conclusion, fire up the barbecue, invite the neighbors! Time to celebrate your new kitchen and make some jealous neighbors!
