Custom Kitchen Remodel: Getting Started

About Kitchens and Baths Kitchen Remodeling

Homeowners who are considering redoing their kitchens can make the process easier by dividing the planning stages into a few discrete steps.

A kitchen remodel can be one of the most harrowing (yet rewarding) experiences out there, for new and old homeowners alike. As challenging and intensive as this project can be, renovating your kitchen can breathe new life into your home and make your daily life better and more comfortable. Despite the clear benefits of custom kitchen remodeling, the prospect of tackling such an ambitious task can be incredibly daunting. Homeowners who are considering redoing their kitchens can make this process easier by dividing the planning stages into a few discrete steps. 

Step 1: Determine a Budget for Your Custom Kitchen Remodeling Project


Before diving headfirst into a major kitchen overhaul, determine just how much you are willing to spend. Some professionals suggest that homeowners cap spending at 20 percent of a home’s value on kitchen remodeling, but many homeowners find that they can significantly improve their kitchens at a fraction of this cost. Consider appliances, materials, labor, and planning costs, and try to prioritize where you can. It may make more sense to splurge in some areas and save in others. Also, don’t forget to account for potential increases in your typical food costs during the course of the renovation. 

Step 2: Get Inspired and Set Goals for Your New Space

With your budget in mind, establish a set of goals for your new space. If your current kitchen is cramped or awkwardly laid out, decide what you want from your new design. Perhaps you want a new layout for your appliances, or maybe you want to knock down a wall to create greater visibility. Peruse pictures of other kitchens and take note of any materials, appliances, layouts, or features that you want to incorporate into your home.

Step 3: Find an Experienced Custom Kitchen Remodeling Team

Once you have a budget and an end result in mind, it’s time to get cracking with an experienced custom kitchen remodeling team. Working with a team of qualified experts allows you to figure out how to bring your vision to life within your means. Remodeling professionals can help homeowners decide on the specific materials, designs, and features needed to create the perfect kitchen for their home.
