Are you overwhelmed at even the mention of renovating or remodeling your kitchen? This is not uncommon; in fact, you’re not alone and the professionals at The Spectrum Cabinet Gallery are here to help. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about renovating and remodeling kitchens.
Q: Where do I start?
A: Well, at the beginning! There are things to consider when renovating and remodeling; your budget is going to determine the extent of your project. Questions to ask yourself
- Do I need new cabinets?
- What about new flooring?
- Can I afford a new countertop?
- Am I going to update my appliances too?
The answers to these questions will provide you a starting point and allow you to determine where to spend your money.
Many home owners are reluctant to share their budget for fear they will be taken advantage of. In reality it helps the designer work within your guidelines and determines how your objectives can be met
Q: Do I need to update my plumbing or electrical?
A: Depending on your current plumbing and electrical you may need to update. The most important aspect is ensuring you are up to code. The Spectrum Cabinet Gallery recommends that only licensed qualified plumbing and electricians be used.
Q: How do I figure out the layout of my kitchen?
A: The layout of your kitchen is essential to optimal function. Items to consider:
- Are there two cooks in your household?
- How do you work in your kitchen?
- Would a island work best for your family?
- Are there physical accommodations that need to be addressed?
The Spectrum Cabinet Gallery professionals design your new kitchen for efficiency, function and ergonomics.
Q: I need extra storage; what are my options?
A: There are many unique and innovative options for storage ideas available. You can choose to have taller cabinets for extra storage; as well as cabinets that reach the ceiling. Full access to base cabinets with pullout drawer banks provide extra storage too.
These and many other options can be discussed in detail with The Spectrum Cabinet Gallery team!
Q: What if I don’t know anything about design?
A: Do you know the difference between traditional, contemporary or transitional? Do you see pictures of kitchens and think; I like those cabinets, but I want a different countertop and the flooring isn’t exactly right either. How do you make everything cohesive and blend together properly? Again, you’re not alone! Design can be confusing and overwhelming; however, it’s important to know that The Spectrum Cabinet Gallery are a group of dedicated professional designers that have one common objective – providing our clients with awe inspiring designs, every time.
Q: How long will I be without a kitchen?
- How much electrical and plumbing is being updated?
- Is the schedule flexible for licensed electricians and plumbers?
- Are you replacing your cabinets or remodeling your cabinets?
- Is there a wait on your new appliances you ordered?
- Where is your splurge spend? Is it customized tiling? New marble countertop? New fancy kitchen faucet (that needs to be shipped from overseas!)?
