Kitchen Remodeling Steps

In every kitchen remodeling project, there are certain steps you need to take. Other steps in a kitchen remodeling project can be taken if needed. Also there are steps in a kitchen remodeling project that should not be taken.

Kitchen Remodeling Steps You NEED To Take

If you are going to do any structural changes to the kitchen, like moving or removing walls, you need to have a permit. If you are working with one of our Kitchen Remodeling teams or a kitchen designer, they will take care of this step for you. If you are changing or altering the electrical load on your home to accommodate things included in your kitchen design, you should check if you need a permit. The key steps to think about for a kitchen remodeling project are the unknowns. If you want to move a load bearing wall, to restructure it and redistribute the load would need a structural engineer and possibly an architect to design it. Think about the difference in budget from knocking down a few pieces of drywall to installing a beam across the width or length of your kitchen to hold up the ceiling or roof.

Here are items to consider yourself or ask your kitchen designer, you may NEED these:

  • Getting proper Permits from the city
  • All licensed & insured trades
  • Contingencies in the budget for emergencies or unexpected costs

Kitchen Remodeling Steps that CAN be Taken

Sometimes a kitchen remodel is strictly cosmetic and you aren’t changing the footprint of the kitchen, just updating or upgrading the materials or appliances. In this case, you can opt to update your electrical while you have a blank canvas. You can add or rearrange lighting. If you are updating the plumbing from the wall out, you can add things like a dishwasher or fridge water lines to expand your appliance capabilities and options.

Steps that Should Be Avoided in Kitchen Remodeling

  • Getting work done by unlicensed or uninsured trades
  • Changing Structures without permits
  • Covering Up problems inside the walls
  • Paying in full or in advance for anything besides a deposit
  • Not having a copy of all permits for inspectors
  • Having or doing loud work late at night
