The Dos and Don’ts of Planning a Kitchen Facelift

In the early times people did not use to bother much about how their house looks or feels. After getting a new house built they lived in it for a couple of decades and then had very little changes made. But now people want to live in the best house possible. After every few years they remodel the whole house or at least some part of it Excess is never good for a proper kitchen facelift, and if you are a novice, then it is better not to go for the DIY techniques. It is always suggested to hire the professional kitchen designers, so that you get a track of their work, and the quality of materials that they choose to incorporate in the latest kitchen designs. That’s why so many people are opting for a kitchen facelift. If you are thinking about it too, here are some things you should and should not do.

The Don’ts of Facelift

Let us first talk about the things that should not be done. Today the number of people who make wrong decisions is higher than those who make the right one. That’s why it is more important to address the common mistakes that people make. Making a kitchen is not all. You must know how to maintain everything, right from applying the perfect coat of kitchen paint, to installing the best quality lights that are environment-friendly.

  • The biggest mistake many people make is that they change the kitchen entirely. You might think that the whole point is to change the things. You must have a habit of the moving around the place and where the entrances and exits are. If you change this basic stuff, you will have a hard time adjusting to the new layout. So, try to keep the free space as similar as possible. Also, do not change the doors and windows.

Buying Kitchen Appliances as and When Required:

During the kitchen facelift people often think that they will have to get all the things possible. They buy all sort of alliances and try to bring every possible feature like an island with seating, etc. Also, you must know your exact budget and buy only branded gadgets to make a proper optimization of kitchen space.  If a 4 burner stove is enough for you, do not waste money and space on 6 burners. The same thing applies for appliances like oven, refrigerator, etc.

  • In most cases people do not worry much about the lighting. They do not think that lights are of any importance in the kitchen. But it is actually one of the most important things. Proper placement of lights is essential to be able to cook efficiently. Also, it makes the place look much better. All the effort that you put into facelift will be visible only if there is proper light.

What Should You ‘Do’ Then?

Now that we know what should not be done, let us start with the things that should be done. Here is a short list of the things that have to be ensured while planning for or working on kitchen facelift.

  • When you are going to start any such project in your house, the first thing to do is to make a budget. You should set a limit to how much you can spend on the project. While doing this you should keep the other expenses in mind. Do not neglect things like kid’s education to make a better kitchen. Spending too little is also a problem, so do not to that either.

Use only the best material for everything in the kitchen, even if you have to compromise on some other things for this. Select those materials which will last long and which shall not be damaged due to regular use, wear and tear.
