Every homeowner knows it’s not wise to blindly delve into kitchen remodeling Evanston. This doesn’t mean that putting money into your kitchen isn’t a wise investment, just that it’s important to devise a strategy when you plan for the project to commence. Of course a big question that our clients have is, “what is a home improvement strategy.” Basically the answer is knowing what you want, how much you want to spend, and the specifics of whether certain items or plans are a ‘want’ or a ‘need.’ Ideally your kitchen remodeling project will add value to your home while also increasing your quality of life. We also always strive to improve energy efficiency, natural lighting, etc. when we draw up your plans.

Decide The Layout For Your Kitchen Remodeling Evanston, Your kitchen has to serve a wide variety of functions – it’s why it’s called the most important room in the house by most real estate agents. The kitchen is for preparing and eating meals, serves as an entertainment spot, is a family congregation area, can be an entry into the home, etc. Therefore the first thing to do when planning a remodel in this room is decide a layout. Unfortunately deciding on a layout isn’t as easy as ‘place to cook here’, ‘place to eat here.’ There’s something known as the ‘kitchen work triangle’ that have a correlation between the cooktop, the sink, and the refrigerator. Your kitchen should also have a natural traffic flow that transitions through (or away) from that area safely. To achieve this, are you going to need to tear down a wall and create an open concept? Is a breakfast bar a want – and can it be achieved with your current space? Are you allocating room for storage?
