Have you always wanted to improve your Ellicott City home, but weren’t sure where to start? A kitchen remodel is the perfect project for 2019, and the professionals at Bowen Remodeling & Design can help! There are so many aspects to planning a kitchen remodel, and it helps to talk with an experienced group of experts before you begin. Read on to learn more about planning a kitchen design, and give us a call to learn more.
Plan for Power
There are likely going to be a lot of appliances in your kitchen, and you need to have enough outlets to power them. You may also need to make sure that the outlets for some of the major appliances that have a tremendous power draw are on different breakers. If you have gas appliances, it can also be an added headache (and possibly expense) to move them if you want to relocate the appliances.
It is tempting to keep an old appliance that still works reasonably well to save money and work the remodel around it. This will result in a mismatched look to the room, and you will likely still have to replace the appliance in a few years (unless it is relatively new itself). Find other ways to cut costs and opt for new appliances, so everything is fresh and works together well.
Plan for family safety when redesigning the kitchen, especially if you’re choosing to stay in your home during the remodel. Ensure that your children do not enter the construction zone and be open with your design team about your family’s needs.
Light Things Up
While you’re making changes to the kitchen, update and upgrade the lighting. The standard seems to be overhead lighting often still, but that often causes you to work in your own shadow in the kitchen. Instead try specialty lighting, like under-cabinet mounted lights that can illuminate the whole countertop and any specialty workstations. Consider LED lighting as an eco-friendly alternative to traditional light sources.
