Plenty of homeowners choose to have their kitchen renovated for various reasons. For instance, the space could be too cramped or already running out of storage. Some want to achieve a certain aesthetic, while others look to get a large return on investment as part of their plans to sell the property. No matter the reason, if you are tackling this residential remodeling project, you must learn everything you can about it, including its stages or phases. This can help you make the best decisions in terms of quality and budget and keep everything on track to ensure its success.
1. Tear Down and Disposal
The first stage of the kitchen remodel involves tearing out the old kitchen and disposing of all materials that can’t be reused. This happens once the kitchen design is approved, the necessary permits are obtained, and the first wave of materials is ready to be delivered.
2. Structural Repairs and Assessments
After tearing down the old kitchen and cleaning the whole space, your remodeling contractor will begin repairing the walls, subfloors and ceilings. Doing this helps ensure proper support for the new kitchen fixtures that will be installed later in the renovation process. The pros also inspect the electrical, plumbing and mechanical systems before installing cabinets, countertops and appliances.
3. Flooring Installation
Home remodeling projects start from the ground up, and kitchen renovations are no different. Once everything is assessed and repaired, the pros start installing the floor of the kitchen space. Ceramic and luxury vinyl tiles remain a popular choice, with solid and engineered hardwood floors not far ahead.
4. Cabinet and Countertop Installations
Your new kitchen begins to take shape in this part of the remodel. Cabinets mounted on walls and subfloors provide support for your counters, appliances and sinks. They also offer storage and hide the electrical and plumbing systems that run through the whole space. You will start seeing your design preferences for your kitchen becoming a reality with the installation of durable and attractive countertops.
5. Backsplash and Appliance Installations
A stylish, low-maintenance backsplash will complement the rest of the kitchen’s interior elements, including your countertops and cabinets. Rounding out the whole renovation process is the placement of the appliances. To avoid delays, make sure these are ready for the pros to install at the end of the project.
