Kitchen Renovation

When you decide to update the look of your home for comfort and functionality, or to increase its resale value, the kitchen is often the first consideration. New cabinets, lighting, and hardwood flooring are a few things included in a kitchen renovation.

Quite often, someone will decide to increase their counter space, install new cabinets, or add an island to divide the kitchen and dining room. No matter what you want to fix, the process for making it happen is pretty simple. But what exactly does that entail and what can homeowners expect?

The first step in any renovation project is to meet with the homeowner and perform an on-site assessment. After determining the changes the homeowner wants to make, the design team will create a plan for how the finished product will look.

After the design team finishes, the construction can begin. An interior designer will help consult with the homeowner on the color palette for the decor, and any functional designs to be implemented.

What is involved in a kitchen renovation?

The first step in the process is to dismantle the kitchen fixtures and remove the elements to be replaced.

  • Turn off power to the kitchen
  • Remove cabinets and shelves
  • Remove appliances
  • Demolition of walls or doorways, if expanding to enlarge the kitchen
  • New plumbing installation
  • Run electrical lines
  • Update lighting and fixtures
  • Install doors and windows
  • Install new cabinets
  • Install new appliances
  • Install new flooring

Beginning the Build

Initially, a team of professionals will work on all of the structural changes in your plans. After removing parts of the kitchen, the new work will begin. If the kitchen is being enlarged, some walls may need to be taken out to open the space.

Install New Plumbing

The old plumbing and fixtures are removed and the area is prepped for new pipes and fixtures. The existing pipes and lines may need to be updated or replaced, depending on the age and condition of the pipes. This is the perfect time to do this, as the plumbing system will be easily accessible.

Replace Electrical Lines

The electrical lines will be run to power the new appliances and lighting fixtures, as well as other items in the kitchen. New circuit breakers may need to be installed to accommodate higher-end appliances.

Update or Add New Lighting

Updating the light fixtures in the kitchen adds function and style to the space. Recessed or track lighting, as well as a ceiling fan/light brightens up the kitchen making it better for preparing meals and entertaining.

Install New Appliances

New energy-efficient appliances add value and save the homeowner money on utility bills. Newer appliances run more efficiently and cost less to use than their outdated counterparts.

Putting On the Finishing Touches

After the construction is finished and the paint, cabinets, lights, and appliances are installed, the flooring is the last step in the process. The finishing touches are applied at this time and the homeowner can see their dream come to life in the finished product.
