The Ugly Truth About Kitchen Remodels in 2022

Welcome to our page and welcome to the biggest undertaking of 2022, should you choose to embark on this adventure!

There is a lot of information available online, so it can be difficult to discern who is telling the truth and who just wants you in their sales funnel.

Our goal with this website and article is to help you understand, specifically, what it takes to execute a clear strategy so you can have a successful kitchen remodel, on budget and on schedule.

In this article you will find:

  1. Your 2022 kitchen remodel planning & design
  2. Your kitchen remodel construction timeline
  3. Choosing the right company - a design-build firm
  4. What are the kitchen remodel tips & tricks we recommend?

If you've been planning on a kitchen remodel for a while, you'll want honest and thorough input to get you started. 

Well, not to worry! In this article, we'll share an honest and thorough take on kitchen remodels, so you can know what to keep in mind along the way! 

Read on to prepare for your San Diego kitchen remodel fully grounded in reality!

Your 2022 Kitchen Remodel Planning & Design


Our design team will eliminate the clutter by clearing your path and guiding you through design options, layout, selections, colors, and interior decorating decisions.

Every quality process takes time, and it's normal for a full kitchen design process to take several weeks; usually between four and eight weeks. So, buckle in and enjoy the ride!

The Teknik team and home owner lean on each other to expedite what we can. But the party remaining outside of our control is the city's permitting department.

Whether we are pulling a permit in the City of Carlsbad, City of Encinitas, City of San Diego, or Del Mar, each office has been understaffed due to social distancing restrictions, and back-logged due to increased numbers of remodels. 

Permits are currently taking several weeks longer than usual,  so remember that this will impact your projects' start date. 

How long does permitting take in San Diego? It varies from city to city (Del Mar being the longest), but over the counter permits can be obtained in as little as two to three weeks. Most combination permits (which is what most kitchens require) are taking three to five months. 

Your Kitchen Remodel Construction Timeline


The saving grace! When you've gone through our process fully, you'll be prepared for every aspect of your remodel from demolition to finishes and the punch list!

If permitting was the bad news, then construction is the good news because 75% of Teknik projects are completed on time or early. Most kitchen renovations take eight to sixteen weeks, so you'll hear "a few weeks" or "a few months" from most contractors you ask.

Multiple times per week, you will receive real-time updates on your smart phone. These updated will include daily logs, progress photos, comments, requests for information (RFI's), and answers to all your questions. Receiving customizable updates is a part of why our home owners love the Perfect Remodel Process.

Are you looking for a firm who can provide thorough documentation of your project, especially when you're not home? Ask about our client-facing project profile software today, so you can see what yours would look like!

If you have questions about kitchen remodel costs, even if its a part of your larger home remodel plan, check out our Kitchens page.

Choosing the Right Kitchen Company - A Design-Build Firm

You have options in today's marketplace so you can interview and choose any of the following:

  1. A material installer general contractor; "You find and order your stuff and I'll have my guys install it for you, so I'm less money".

  2. A design & project management firm with a general contractors license: "We do it all for you, A to Z, but we take a large markup and subcontract 100% of our work to other smaller companies.". Look for this in large multi-generational firms.

  3. A licensed general contractor with a design-build model and a firm process: "Here is what the design process, permitting process and construction process all look like in terms of time and cost. Here is how we can make these dreams on your list come true with the budget you provided, so when would you like to get started?"

The best remodeling contractors available in our industry are marked by responsiveness, competency and transparency.

Equally important as finding the right fit is to acknowledge that the other two options are great business models for some. 

Our experience tells us that the third type of company (firms like Teknik) provide the best experience to the homeowner, so we recommend sticking close to the design-build model. 

Next, you'll need to start gathering companies to interview. For this process, we recommend creating an account on houzz.com, referenced below.

What Are the Kitchen Remodel Tips & Tricks We Recommend?

There are three things we recommend for our kitchen remodeling families, so check these out!

  1. Again, go to Houzz.com to create an account. Next create an Ideabook. Then, fill that Ideabook with looks, materials, and layouts that you and your partner can agree on. Finally, this vital design preparation will serve you well and make next steps much easier! Preparation equals separation.

  2. Go to Angi.com to find reliable reviews left for contractors over time. These reviews along with those found on Google & Yelp tend to be the most reliable. Additionally, if you're looking for a hyper-local app to use, check out Nextdoor.com to see what your neighbors thing or who they've hired recently.

  3. Finally, visit build.com and build.com/appliances to jump start your selections and get an idea of ETAs. If you tentatively select your kitchen appliances and plumbing fixtures, you'll be better prepared to have a conversation about your budget and investment goals. Next, you can print to PDF and share with your contractor or design-build team, or share it with us!

  4. For more tips, you'll have to call 858-775-7628 and see if you're eligible for one of our free consultations! Call NOW!

Man, we know about being overwhelmed and not knowing where to start during these times.

But don’t worry. In this article, we'll show you how and where to start! 

Read on for the first three things you MUST KNOW before you begin!

Teknik Testimonial

1. Kitchen Remodel Cost - The Bad News First

We are so glad you've decided to scan this article in preparation for your kitchen remodel. Welcome!

A quick recap on costs:
 
In 2015 excellent kitchen remodels, large and small, were being done for $60,000 to $130,000 + appliances and finishes.

In 2019 kitchens were costing anywhere from $65,000 to $140,000 + appliances and finishes.

In 2020 and 2021 everything was in a state of flux. By "everything", we mean material cost, material ETA's, labor cost, labor availability and everything in between.

Thank goodness lumber is no longer 300% of what is cost in 2019. Still, all materials are up double digits and most are up between 20% and 60%. This shouldn't scare you, but it should create perspective.

That being said, we're doing kitchens right now between $85,000 and $180,000+. Most single family home kitchens are >$100,000 + finishes and appliances.

So far, the numbers are tracking for 2022 to remain in that range.

Please call 858-775-7628 for more information.

2. Kitchen Design Firm & Contractor or Design-Build Firm?

Home owner wants a remodel. Home owner starts asking around. Home owner finds someone who does something in construction and the opinion-gathering begins.

It's a normal experience to start research through organic methods like asking friends, coworkers or neighbors. But it is also considered  "normal" to have delays, change orders, and project timelines that just don't work out.

We're here to help you take your power back

Don't allow miscellaneous opinions from people who aren't paying for your project direct you to generic general contractors. Over 4500 entities in San Diego county hold a B-License; a general contractors license. But most of those aren't qualified for your project! 

So "how do I choose the right contractor for my project?"

Pursue This:


You want a design-build firm so that the team estimating and the team building are on the same team. You can value-engineer without paying over $100/hr for revisions. Furthermore, you can discuss options and accomplish adjustments in the scope with speed.

Interview three or interview ten. But please, make them design-build firms!

Avoid This:


Being a home owner who tells their architect, designer or family friend what they want and their target budget, has the designs drawn up, submits to the city and acquires their permit without first seeking council from a firm that designs, estimates and builds (this is your triple-threat key!).

Finally, the #1 reason for heartbreak in the remodel process is that the home owner innocently gives their power away to a designer who hasn't earned trust by demonstrating project after project on BUDGET

Where to get started:

If it was us, we would check out customer reviews on three primary platforms:

  1. Home Advisor 
  2. Houzz
  3. Google
  4. Yelp (honorary mention, but a lot more handyman services here than legit design-build firms)

Home owner questions usually answered by reviews: "Can I trust you?" "Are you on time?" "Will you treat my house/kids/pets/family well?" "Will you usually be right about the price and timeline estimates you give me?" "Will I be happy with just the finished product or will I enjoy the process of my remodel?"

All these and more will be addressed in reviews when you're searching for top kitchen remodel companies in Encinitas

How to get started:

If it was us, we would execute the following steps to get started and prepare for your kitchen remodel

  1. First, establish a top budget limit based on the finances available and the total investment that makes sense your home
  2. Then, establish which business model you're looking for; designers, builders, or design-build?
  3. Next, establish a needs list and a wants list. This will allow you to see how far down your priority list your budget can take you. 
  4. Finally, you can visit houzz.com to create an account and start putting your "needs list" items into an Ideabook.

Top 3 Tips for Remodeling Your Kitchen

You might be wondering if you can still remodel your kitchen in 2022, despite all the recent changes! The most important thing is to get input from the right sources. We're pretty confidant that the Teknik team is one of the right sources! Here are our Top Three Tips!

  1. Open up the layout
  2. Embrace the design build process
  3. Prepare for the execution

Man, we know about being overwhelmed and not knowing where to start. 

But don’t worry. In this article, we'll show you where to start! 

Read on for the first three things you MUST KNOW before you begin!

Teknik Testimonial

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.

2. Embrace The Design-Build Process

Initially every home owner has ideas and dreams for their ideal space.

Then, as you get into preparation and planning, we help you take inventory of the physical limitations of the space.

Finally, the design-build process is about find the ideal way to use your space. You'll discover the list of features that will make your life easier and the list of possibilities that will blow your mind! 

Remember, when remodeling the sky is the limit. Anything is possible.

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!

You Need A New 15×15 Kitchen Remodel? Read On!

The four stages of a 15x15 kitchen remodel

  1. Design 
  2. Permitting
  3. Selections
  4. Execution

Man, we know about being overwhelmed and not knowing where to start. 

But don’t worry. In this article, we'll show you how to prepare for the four stages of your 15x15 kitchen remodel! 

Read on to discover the four stages you MUST UNDERSTAND before you begin!

Teknik Testimonial

1. Design

On one hand, you've got ideas and dreams. 

On the other hand, you've got a physical home with physical limitations and a budget with limitations as well.

The process of design is the process of getting your design ideas to meet your budget. You've got to get into design elements, architecture, engineering, and selections in order to get to a tight budget price range.

But once your budget has been updated throughout the design process, you'll be able to value-engineer and play with different options to tweak the price until you find a number that works. This will feel like volley ball--it's a lot of back and forth!

2. Permitting

After design is almost complete you're ready to submit to the city. Permitting takes several weeks but after you receive either approval or your comments back, you'll be ready...

Ready for what? You'll be ready to either:

  1. Make adjustments based on the comments from the city.
  2. Solidify the budget and estimate based on the permitted design.

The permitting process can feel like hurry up and wait, especially if you're eager to get started. COVID has slowed down the process of getting a plan set through each department but it's going more smoothly this fall than earlier in the year!

3. Selections

With your permitted plan set in-hand, you'll be able to solidify finish materials, obtain lead times, and begin planning your project schedule. By "you" we mean your contractor, but you'll be included in the process. 

As your calendar comes into clarity, you'll be ready to begin planning for the fun part!

3. Execution

Demolition can be quick but it will be messy and loud. Even with hepa vacuums and thousands of dollars of equipment, including air scrubbers, etc., the process of demolition is always messy. 

Additionally, it is wise to plan for 10% flexion 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! Fire up the barbecue, invite the neighbors! Time to celebrate your new kitchen and make some jealous neighbors!

Three Tips for Your 10×15 Kitchen Remodel

Top concerns for a 10x15 San Diego kitchen remodel:

  1. Please shop for your contractor, not your contract
  2. Please build your Ideabooks on Houzz.com
  3. Please make two lists so you have clarity before you begin

Man, we know about being overwhelmed and not knowing where to start. 

But don’t worry. In this article, we'll show you where to start! 

Read on for the first three things you MUST KNOW before you begin!

Teknik Testimonial

Shop For Your Contractor, Not Your Contract

We know, get a bunch of bids and then decide on the right guy. 

Sounds like a good idea but the truth is, you'll end up with an average contractor and larger-than-average problems. 

Adding insult to injury, you'll have change orders to fix those problems...but you no doubt chose that contractor to save money so you're actually upside down a little bit. 

If you want the truth, ask the car salesman where he buys cars for his kids...

Ask the luxury jewelry saleswoman where she buys her personal diamonds...

Ask the contractor how he shops for contractors to do work on his home and how he value engineers his own projects to achieve both of your goals: 

  1. Get the job done right the first time
  2. Do it as efficiently as possible 

If you shop for your contractor, not your contract you can have the best of both.

Please Build Your Ideabooks on Houzz.com

When you speak contractors, you'll be asking them your questions...

But in order to get you to where you want to go, they will often answer your questions with more questions...

So, in order to be better prepared than 80% of home owners, build an Ideabook on Houzz.com

This allows for two things:

  1. You'll select what you like and don't like in each photo. You'll be able to add a note or caption so you remember exactly which feature you liked within that photo.
  2. You'll gain clarity on the entire look and functionality, vs. having a bunch of unrelated ideas. As you select photos 17, 18, 19, and 20, you'll start to see themes and you'll be excited to go back and delete some of the first photos you selected because they no longer fit your aesthetic!

Instructions:

Create Your Ideabook

  • Get Ideas>Kitchen>Use filters if desired>Hover over the photo>Click Save>Add notes on the photo>Drop down menu> + Create New>Save!
  • Repeat for all photos as desired.

 Share with us

  • Hover over “Your Houzz” (top right)
  • Your Ideabooks
  • Click the desired Ideabook
  • Finally click “Invite” to search for Teknik and invite us to view it!

15×20 Kitchen Remodel

So it's finally time to look at the remodel project that you've been putting off - the kitchen! Thinking of a few questions on your journey is normal!

  • How do I choose the right company?
  • How much will my large 15x20 kitchen remodel cost?
  • How long do 15x20 kitchen remodels take?

Boy, do we know how it feels to shop for the perfect kitchen remodel contractor in San Diego and wonder if you've found the right person.

But don’t worry. You’re in the perfect place! 

In this article, we'll answer these three questions so you can get off to a great start as you pursue your kitchen remodel.

Teknik Testimonial

How Do I Choose The Right Company?

The best way to find your contractor is to shop for character not for price.

The default is to call a bunch of contractors and have them all come out to your home and provide bids. However, this only works fro single-trade commodity-style jobs. 

If your 15x20 kitchen remodel needs a full overhaul, you'll want to ensure you find a person or design-build firm that will communicate, collaborate, and work with your specific needs. 

If a company is willing to come out, give you a bid on the spot, and make promises without doing their due diligence, they are probably not the one for you.

How Much Will my 15x20 Kitchen Remodel Cost?

Answering this question is a lot like answering the question, "How much does a new car cost?" 

There are dozens, if not hundreds of answers to questions that will inform the answer and make it more specific and accurate. What is your budget? What is the make, model, year, sport package, etc?

Most NEW cars that the general public will purchase are going to cost between $35,000 and $120,000. Now, you can name those exceptions but you'll agree that the range makes sense. 

In the same way, with very few exceptions, most of the 15x20 kitchens that San Diego home owners will remodel will cost between $110,000 and $250,000. Here is a pie chart of how your budget may be allocated:

Best Contractor for Quarantine Home Improvements

So you're a San Diego home owner and you need work done but not you're not sure if you need a general contractor...?

Here are a few ideas of home improvements that you can make without the demolition, cost and timeline of a "major remodel". It wont be perfect, but it will be good! Including but not limited to:

  • Repaint the main floor
  • Replace the flooring & baseboards
  • Replace the old doors and casings
  • Update aging electrical fixtures
  • ...and more!

Check out more below and look for the bold type to scan the article quickly!

Teknik Testimonial

Repaint The Main Floor

If you're looking to give your space a refreshed look and touch up a few of the wear and tear areas, repainting the main floor is a great option. 

If you repaint the walls, ceiling, and even the trim you could have much lighter, more open feel in a few days time. Just remember to keep that furniture away from the walls until it's fully cured!

When considering painting contractors, we recommend calling a few of their previous clients. Please ensure that you are working with a reputable company before allowing them into your home. 

Home Advisor touts "pre-screened pros" and they do run background checks. But be warned, they only look in-state and they only go back 12 months. 

Replace The Flooring & Baseboards

Even the most durable floors get beat up, scratched, and eventually start to look dingy.

We move furniture, drag chairs, have our pets, and our company all over our floors.

If you're looking to update your Travertine tile look or to replace old carpet with LVP (Luxury Vinyl Planks), there are plenty of options that will allow a classic look that is very low maintenance and doesn't cost you an arm and a leg. 

We love flooring like we love hair. It's not just pretty, it's yours and it reflects your taste. It's practical. It's personal.

Replace The Old Doors & Door Casing

What you may not know, is how BIG of a difference your interior doors and trim make.

We can replace stock trim with standard three inch trim. Trust us, it looks way better.

How about replacing the beat up builder grade doors with high quality doors that create a crisp, classy feel

When you replace all three: doors, door casing, and interior trim, you'll have replaced the areas that tend to get the most bruises due to high traffic and moving furniture. Wha-la! Fresh look.

Update Your Aging Electrical Fixtures

New chandelier. 

New wall sconces.

Replace existing and add new can lights for additional lighting.

Install coordinated fixtures throughout the kitchen, main living areas, and hallways. 

There you have it! You'll have a more energy efficient home, and have a better time controlling your LED's throughout the day since they'll now be on dimmer switches.

Get The Front Yard Refaced

Contrary to the opinions of some, refreshing the front yard is not "putting lipstick on a pig".

Yes, curb appeal is cited as a top influence by real estate agents for hopeful home buyers. When they check out properties for sale, a pretty front yard may pull on their heartstrings, but it's not the only reason to get it done.

Research demonstrates that an area in disarray will not be maintained as well as an area that is meticulously designed and manicured. In other words, we protect and preserve more intensely, that into which we have already invested.

Whether you have teenagers at home during quarantine, or a partner that you'd like to help you do yard work, they are more likely to oblige if there is already beauty there to protect

Why choose Teknik for Your Quarantine Home Improvements?

Well, there are about 3000 companies with a General Contractor's "B License" in San Diego County.

Many of them will be able to complete the scope of work you're looking for. Where we stand out from the crowd, is having mastered systems so that you don't have to babysit your project

Let us help you remain focused on your 2020 goals and on spending time with your family by working to keep you away from these three industry shortfalls:

  • Late Completion  
  • Going Over Budget
  • Overuse of Subcontractors

Still not convinced?

Not a problem. You can just call to chat with us for a few minutes, no pressure.  Plus, you'll be 100% protected by our Spoiled Rotten Customer Guarantee!

Choosing The Best Contractor for Your 10×10 Kitchen Remodel

Hey, if you're a San Diego homeowner and you're not sure if you want to move forward with your 10x10 kitchen remodel, check out some of of these common questions:

  • How long will I be cooking on my hot plate if I remodel my kitchen?
  • What needs to happen before I can get started?
  • Approximately how much does a 10x10 kitchen cost?
  • Who is the best contractor for the job?  

Boy, do we know how it feels to want quality at a fair price and not know where to start.

But don’t worry. You’re in the perfect place! 

In this article, we will answer your questions so you can make a great decision about your kitchen for you and your family.  

Teknik Testimonial

How Long Will I Be Using A Hot Plate?

It is common for the design and collaboration to take six to eight to ten weeks. This depends most heavily on the home owners' schedule, availability and readiness. 

You can't control the marketplace, material suppliers, or your contractor, but you can control yourself and decide on your own contribution and proactive response times.

Most 10x10 kitchens, from demo to completion, take 8 to 14 weeks.

What Needs To Happen Before We Can Get Started?

First things first, build a Houzz Ideabook using the following instructions:

Create Your Ideabook
Get Ideas>Kitchen>Use filters if desired>Hover over the photo>Click Save>Add notes on the photo>Drop down menu> + Create New>Save! Repeat for all photos as desired.

Share with us
Hover over “Your Houzz” (top right)
Your Ideabooks
Click the desired Ideabook
Finally click “Invite” to search for Teknik and invite us to view it!

Secondly, write down two lists: 

  1. Must have list - "These things are non-negotiable for me".
  2. Wish list - "These things would be great, but it depends on other factors such as timeline, budget and structural feasibility".

Your two lists will provide clarity so that the whole team can better serve you during the design process.

How Much?

This question is our favorite - and here's why!

Mindset, mindset, mindset.

If the goals are only expediency and low cost, then the remodel will suffer because the cost obsession will cause you to be short-sighted about some of the decisions.

If the goals are long-term, quality, value, communication, a great remodel experience, then it stands to reason that a firm who can deliver on these high promises would be offering them at a fair price too.

By virtue of their long term upright character, they will function with the same standard of integrity across each area of their business, and that includes cost.

Who Is The Best Contractor For The Job?

Take it from us, there is nothing like investing a Saturday and a Sunday to have a bunch of contractors wearing masks in your home, just to find out that they aren't qualified for one reason or another. Solution? Better strategy!

The site visit is no substitution for doing your due diligence online. By the time you schedule your site visit you have already verified that each contractor:

  1. Is licensed, bonded, and ensured. Verify here https://www.cslb.ca.gov/OnlineServices/CheckLicenseII/CheckLicense.aspx
  2. Is in good standing with the Better Business Bureau. Verify here http://bbb.com/
  3. Is currently engaged in other projects in the community. Verify on their website or social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Yelp, and Houzz. Remember, most contractors are pretty small businesses, so it's okay if there aren't lots of recent updates. You just want to make sure they have been active!
  4. Is receiving a good proportion of recent 4 and 5-star reviews. Are they leaving their clients satisfied customers or raving fansAre they being invited back to complete a second or third project?

And that's it folks. Now you are ready to:

  • Schedule a site visit with only your top 2 and get a ballpark range from each.
  • Select your contractor 
  • Follow their process to collaborate on a design, layout, and scope that you love. This collaboration will produce your detailed estimate. Yes, this price will fall within the initial ballpark range, unless the scope is increased. 
  • Complete your project on time!

Our Industry Secret...

The gold standard for what any contractor recommends is to ask them, "What would you do if it were your house?"

  • Most people are decent and honest
  • Most people want to help
  • Most people don't have extravagant taste, but do require quality

Ask questions. Listen. Trust your gut. And always, always read the reviews online.

Getting Back To Your Remodel Amidst Ongoing Social Distancing?

The most important factor that San Diego homeowners look for when interviewing contractors are as follows:

  • Honesty
  • Excellent communication
  • Quality craftsmanship
  • Promptness
  • Cleanliness during remodel

During this time of continued quarantine, social distancing, and exceptional safety standards to slow and flatten the curve, here is what our home owners have been asking:

  • How soon can I get back to my remodel if the lock down starts to loosen in May?
  • How do we keep planning and making decisions so that we are ready when things open up?
  • How can I make sure I am covering all basis if we aren't meeting with the contractor in person?

During such an important time for the safety of our community, it is vital that we are careful in asking and answering these questions.

But don’t worry. You’re in the perfect place! 

In this article, we'll answer all your questions so you can make a great decision about your remodel for you and your family.  

Teknik Testimonial

How Soon Can I Get My Remodel Started as The Lock Down Starts to Loosen?

The nature of the design-build process allows us to work with you and for you whether we are meeting in person or not. The collaboration and design decisions can often be made remotely and with the aid of Zoom meetings and material sample deliveries. 

Though there should be no need for you to delay design and collaboration, the process of construction has slowed somewhat, so you may find a later start or completion since all the projects that were going on during the second half of March are also experiencing delayed wrap up.

Regardless, we recommend getting started sooner rather than later.

How Can We Keep Planning & Making Decisions So We Are Ready When Things Open Up?

If you are already engaged with a design-build firm, then each meeting in their process should include homework and next steps for you to complete between meetings. 

  1. Contractor--If you are still kicking tires or looking to choose a contractor soon, follow these steps to make the right selection
    1. Call 3 to 5 contractors
    2. Intentionally qualify each over the phone considering character, integrity, experience, and follow-up.
    3. Schedule a site visit with only your top 1 or 2 and get a ballpark range from each based on pictures and experience.
    4. Select your contractor 
    5. Follow the remote process to collaborate on a design, layout, and scope that you love. This collaboration will produce your detailed estimate, or Teknik True Quote. Yes, this price will fall within the initial ballpark, unless the scope is increased. 
    6. Complete your project on time!
  2. Materials--Create a Houzz.com Ideabook
    1. Create a Houzz.com account.
    2. Hover over the "My Account" button on the top-right of your screen
    3. Click on My Ideabooks
    4. Create a new one and choose a name

Finally, use the search bar to find photos that you love! You may find your tile, plumbing, flooring, and light fixtures. Ensure that you make notes under each photo to specify which features you've noticed in each photo. When you select your contractor, you can share it with them on houzz.com. This will save you lots of time during your interior design & finish material meetings.

How Can I Make Sure I Cover All Bases If We Aren't Meeting With The Contractor In Person?

Our remote design consultants are not computers; they are not automated! They are live! For each and every question, comment, or concern you have, a real person will reply and walk you through it personally. 

Regarding samples, you do not have to make your selections 100% online. We have a dedicated team to pick up and hand deliver your top three options so you can see them in your home for a couple of days before making a choice.

Please feel empowered by this: it is truly the responsibility of the design-build firm you are working with to ensure that no steps are missed. You should really make sure you can trust their process; that they are organized and lay out a clear path for you. 

For more info on selecting the right contractor visit this article: https://teknikinc.com/how-to-plan-your-kitchen-remodel-around-the-post-covid-19-san-diego-market/

Finally, you will eventually meet in person and be able to review everything face to face, or mask to mask. We have simply re-ordered the process to accommodate greater safety precautions. 

Will The Design Process Ever Get Back To Normal?

In some ways, this is like asking if our cell phones will ever go back to normal. Change can be a great thing, even if a tragic pandemic was what forced us to be better.

We will keep our improvements and avoid slacking off or letting old habits sneak back into our NEW sharper processes. 

The biggest way that we have become better is to take on the burden of planning and organization more fully and even more upfront.

The site visit used to be step 3/4, depending on the situation. Now, we stack a lot more work up on ourselves to make your life easier before its necessary to send anyone to your home.

What Should We Expect In The New Normal?

“A ton of people’s lives are going to change. A ton of people are going to realize that they love working from home but they can’t work out of their kitchen so they will have to change their lives accordingly.” – Dave Rubin

We can expect the remodel focus with shift slightly to include more living spaces, dens, and office remodels. 

“This is changing everything. People don’t realize, but things will never be the same again.  This is going to change things permanently”. – Gary Vaynerchuck

Historically, during times of uncertainty and instability, an unprecedented number of people turn from full-time employment toward starting small or online businesses as a way of having greater control of time and money. Expect to see more internet business, expect the flip from brick and mortar to online!

“Back to normal? No. Nothing is going back to normal. We don’t want normal. Things will never be the same again.” – Steven Furtick

Human resilience and human kindness are unbeatable. We are more kind, more patient, better listeners. We can expect significant loss. We can also expect to get through it and come together with more conviction to serve our fellow man and with more resolve to find great ways of doing business. 

Why Choose Teknik for Your Remodel?

Best Contractor for a 10 x 12 Kitchen Remodel in

Hey, if you're a San Diego homeowner and you're not sure if you can host one more year of holiday parties with your 10x12 kitchen, you're not alone. Many of the families' who's kitchens we update, start out with a lot of frustration, and even more questions. Do any of these resonate with you?

  • how long will I be cooking in my garage if I remodel my kitchen?
  • what needs to happen before we can get started?
  • how much does it cost?
  • who the best contractor is for the job?  

Boy, do we know how it feels to want quality at a fair price and not know where to start.

But don’t worry. You’re in the perfect place! 

In this article, we'll answer all your questions so you can make a great decision about your kitchen for you and your family.  

Teknik Testimonial

How Long Will I Be Cooking In My Garage?

As a sweeping generalization, it is common for design and collaboration to take eight to sixteen weeks. This depends most heavily on the home owners' schedule, availability and readiness. 

  • Home owner A might make a decision in three minutes and reply to our text in five minutes
  • Home owner B might spend two of every four weeks traveling for work and reply to us every three to five business days. 
  • Home owner C is most people who reply in one to two business days. Our team most closely resembles home owner C.

You can't control the marketplace, material suppliers, or your contractor, but you can control yourself and decide on your own contribution and proactive response times.

Most 10x12 kitchens, from demo to completion, take 7 to 12 weeks.

What Needs To Happen Before We Can Get Started?

First things first build two scope lists. Since your kitchen is going to get a full face lift, this is the time to decide if you want to also update the flooring, painting, doors and trim throughout the whole main floor. New windows? Remove a non-load bearing wall? Remove drop ceiling to enlarge the space?

  • A: Must have list - "These things are non-negotiable for me". 
  • B: Wish list - "These things would be great, but it depends on other factors such as timeline and feasibility".

Your two lists will provide clarity so that the whole team can better serve you during the design process.

How Much?

This question is our favorite - and here's why!

Mindset, mindset, mindset.

If the goals are only expediency and low cost, then the remodel will suffer because of the hyper focus.
