Kitchen Renovation Process

Have you been searching online – where can I find the best kitchen builder near me who can help me with just the right process to revamp my kitchen?

A kitchen remodel not only upgrades the look of your property but also elevates your property’s equity in terms of resale value!

A beautifully remodelled kitchen makes an excellent place for personal and social gatherings and creates a lively and soothing aura in the house.

The kitchen remodelling process can be quite variable, depending on what you choose to do with your kitchen. Hiring a professional is the best way to have your kitchen completed professionally and quickly.

However, if you choose to do it yourself, it may be initially pocket-friendly, but the process can be extremely time-consuming, stressful and you may end up making some very costly and dangerous DIY mistakes along the way. Asbestos and electrical safety incidents are far too common these days.

A kitchen remodel may require you to invest a lot of hours, money, and effort, but it is all worth it. And if you are rightfully aware of the entire renovation process, you can avoid any shocks or surprises that may come your way and be fully prepared for them!

Here is a guide that will help you understand the steps and intricate details of a kitchen remodeling process.

Prioritise Your Planning

Before practically starting your kitchen remodelling process, your primary concern is to evaluate your wants vs. your needs. You should figure out what must go in your remodelled kitchen. You can start by deciding the things you essentially need in the kitchen and then move onto the looks of it. These considerations are very crucial before making any decisions. This will help you decide your budget for your remodelling project.

Plan Your Layout

After you have decided on the kitchen remodelling budget, it is time to plan the layout of your kitchen. The 5 classic kitchen design plans are:
Select one of these plans that are most suitable for your kitchen layout and develop a plan with your kitchen designer and builder.

Professional Kitchen Builders or DIY?

Once you have set the budget and decided on a layout for your kitchen, you have one important decision to make. Who will work on your kitchen? There are generally 3 options:

Brace Yourself

Once the entire planning process is done and ready, there is a minute step for you before you begin to demolish your kitchen. You need to brace yourself to live without your kitchen. Make some space in the house and shift your functional kitchen appliances to make yourself a temporary kitchen for the time being.

Start Demolishing

The demolition of the kitchen depends on the kind of remodel you want for your kitchen. An entire overhaul may need you to remove the load-bearing walls. So be ready to have some noise and debris flying around!

Structural Build Out

This process basically involves significant construction tasks depending on the kitchen configuration and your preferences, such as breaking down walls, new windows, a new kitchen island, etc. This will require professional help ensuring appropriately licenced and insured workers.

Mechanical Rough-In

Once the structural construction task is over, next is the mechanical rough-in work, which includes the installation of updated plumbing wires, pipes, and HVAC ductwork. It’s best that you let licensed and professional plumbers, electricians, and HVAC workers do this because of the complex nature of the work.

Walls and Ceilings

You should wait for the construction and mechanical work such as wiring, plumbing, and HVAC inspection to finish. After which, you can begin with the insulation, installation of drywall, priming, and painting process for your walls and ceiling. This process is considerably quick and economical and will make your kitchen look like a kitchen again.

Kitchen Flooring

The professionals generally keep the kitchen flooring installation for the end of the process, to avoid wear and tears. Your expense will depend on the type of flooring you choose for your kitchen remodel. Some of the options are laminate flooring, ceramic tile, sheet vinyl, and solid hardwood, engineered wood flooring.

Cabinets and Countertops

As the kitchen building process comes to an end, you can go on to install the kitchen cabinets and countertops. It would be best if you let the professionals install the cabinets and countertops with their expertise to ensure they are level and installed correctly to provide decades of stress-free enjoyment.

Install the Appliances

Appliances are then installed, lighting and plumbing fixtures too with the help of a licenced plumber and a licenced electrician who will help you to connect the water supply to the tap and the lighting fixtures to the switches, and also cover the ductwork.

Inspection of the Completed Kitchen

Once the kitchen building process is over, you must inspect the entire kitchen carefully to ensure there are no defects or structural issues. In the end, you should let the kitchen builder know if you are unsatisfied with anything. This is a vital process that can help you to know whether you have invested your money rightfully.
