You’ve had the idea in your head for a while, you’ve got the funds and you’re ready to transform your kitchen. Renovating any space takes time and appropriate planning in order for you to be ready for a lot of changes in your home, like making space for a temporary kitchen, spending your budget wisely and researching decorators and builders right for the job.
Luckily this bespoke kitchen company from London has all the guidance you need to prepare you for your kitchen renovations and help you build the kitchen of your dreams.
Have a clearly defined plan
Don’t bring the builders around and expect the work to be done how you want it if you don’t have a plan of action and a way of moving forward with your kitchen renovation. It’s best to have a professional look at your kitchen and make a plan based on their recommendations and how long each element will take. So, for example, if you’re considering changing the tiles or flooring in your kitchen, have a decorator and/or tiler look at your kitchen, measure the space and calculate a proposed quote for the work.
Research decorators and designers
Picking the cheapest or most local option isn’t always wise, especially if you’ve not done enough research to begin with. Ask your neighbours if they’ve had any work done in the home and if they’d recommend the decorators they used. Alternatively, ask around in social media groups or check reviews online for a handful of renovators in your local area that are highly rated and have great testimonials for you to read before deciding.
When it’s ready for renovation, clear the space
Your kitchen may be unusable for some time, so it’s wise to plan ahead and clear the entire kitchen out ready for decorators, tilers and any other builders you hire. If you can, pull off any fixtures that can be easily removed and set up a temporary cooking space while work is being done in the kitchen.
You use your kitchen a lot throughout the year, so it’ll be a tricky few weeks getting adjusted to an awkward cooking situation – and you won’t be able to eat out every day! Batch cook a number of meals to put into a freezer that can be reheated in a microwave for ease and stick to simple meals until your kitchen is done.
It’ll be a little bit more complicated for a few weeks, but it’ll be worth it when your brand new kitchen is sparkling and becomes a welcome addition to your home.
