At Eden Construction, we understand that any renovation project can be an intimidating undertaking. There are many decisions to make, and these often come with high emotional and financial stakes–getting it wrong means that you not only wasted hard-earned money, but also have to live in a home that disappoints or fails to meet your needs. This is especially true in the case of kitchen renovations, which involve big-ticket items like appliances. Many people feel too overwhelmed by the prospect of kitchen renovations to take the steps to improve their space; however, you can easily conquer this fear by answering a couple of key questions before you start your renovations.
- How do you plan to use your kitchen? Do you envision your kitchen as a space to gather with friends to share food and conversation, or do you see it as a purely functional space? Do you want an open-plan kitchen for both cooking and eating, or do you prefer privacy while you cook? Your answers to these questions will help you decide on the right layout for your kitchen renovations.
- Who is likely to use the kitchen at the same time? Another important question when planning kitchen renovations is how many people will be using your kitchen at the same time. If you have many people under your roof, consider how many of them are likely to be in the kitchen to cook or clean at once. A single adult living alone can use a much tighter work triangle, while a large household likely needs a wider and more open space.
Answering these two questions will help you clarify what you want from your kitchen renovations, and this clarity will help you deal with the many decisions down the line. If you need help answering these questions or are unsure where to go from there, you can call our team at Eden Construction to get a professional consultation.
