A kitchen remodel is one of the most popular remodels a homeowner chooses to do. The kitchen, arguably more than any other room in the house, experiences a great deal of wear and tear. Food is spilled, surfaces are frequently cleaned with harsh chemicals, and storage needs are reconsidered. Since the kitchen is a functional room, as opposed to a more design-heavy room like the living room or bedroom, a homeowner will surely have a lot of specific needs that get addressed during a remodel. Whether you are tackling the renovation yourself or are hiring a professional kitchen remodeler there are questions that need to be answered before the project begins.
First and foremost is what exactly do you need from the space.
Is cooking a hobby, passion, or just a thing that needs to be done three times a day? Those who are serious about cooking have different needs from those who are just looking to put together a quick meal. Only after determining how serious about cooking you are, can you start to tackle the layout. This is because a more serious cook will likely need different equipment, think dual ovens or additional appliances.
