An updated kitchen can add value and functionality to a house, but the remodeling process can feel daunting. Considering these ten items early on can help ensure a more successful and speedy remodel.
Even for experienced builders, remodeling has its “oh no” moments. And if you’re remodeling a kitchen—the most complicated and expensive room in most houses—you’re navigating a minefield of them. With careful planning, however, you can avoid common kitchen-remodel pitfalls and get yourself into your new kitchen sooner.
1. Design the perfect kitchen island for the space.
Some kitchens aren’t big enough for an island. Don’t install one unless you have at least 36 in. of clearance all the way around. A clearance of 42 in. is better, and 48 in. is ideal. If you do install a kitchen island, be careful what goes into it. Remember that an island also requires electrical outlets (usually one on each side) to meet code.
