Renovating your kitchen has many benefits. Not only will you love using and being in your new, beautiful kitchen, you will also improve your home’s aesthetics and increase property value. When renovating your kitchen, it’s important to work with an experienced and reputable general contractor. This will ensure your project is completely taken care of from the design stages, through construction and completion.
Though a major kitchen renovation can be very exciting, it is also a big job and there will be many phases in the process. Peak Improvements in Edmonton share some things to expect when renovating your kitchen.
Things will be disrupted.
Although they will try their best not to disrupt your home life and always clean up at the end of each day, having a major construction project happening in the heart of your home will be disruptive to you and your family. The main thing is that you will be without a kitchen for a while, so you’ll have to do some planning on how and where you’ll prepare and eat your meals.
It will also be noisy during construction. Expect some banging around during demolition and the sound of power tools throughout the entire renovation. General contractors in Edmonton will provide a schedule of your renovation so you will know which jobs will be done on which days so you can better plan around these disruptions.
People are going to be working in your house…early in the morning.
During a kitchen renovation, you might want to make sure you’re dressed and ready for the day bright and early! The people working on your kitchen renovation are starting their workday, just like everyone else, so expect them to be at your house as early as 8:00 AM. Make sure you’ve made your coffee, had a shower and are ready for them to arrive! Whether you decide to be at home while they work is up to you.
Things might not always go exactly as planned.
This is a big kitchen renovation reality check. You can precisely plan every detail of your renovation, but be prepared for the unexpected. For example, the demolition crew might find water damage or black mould behind your old cabinets or you might discover that there is unsafe wiring that will have to be replaced. Be prepared to tackle these hiccups by leaving some wiggle room in your budget and your schedule.
You have a lot of choices to make.
Choosing all the different features of your kitchen renovation can be fun, but be prepared to make a lot of decisions. Peak Improvements can offer their professional advice, but ultimately you have final say and must choose things like cabinets, countertops, back splash, faucets and fixtures, wall colour and lighting. It might seem a little overwhelming, but have fun with it and remember that when it’s all over, you’ll be standing in the kitchen of your dreams.
