    A New Kitchen: The Holiday Gift That Keeps Giving

    Posted in:

    If you are like many people, you are cooking and/or baking during the holiday season. You are likely making larger quantities of food than you would throughout the rest of the year. This means you are spending hours in your kitchen, noticing all of the qualities of your kitchen that make this process easy and all the qualities that you wish your kitchen had to make it even easier or more efficient. For instance, maybe you need more counter space. Maybe you do not have enough burners to accommodate your needs. Maybe your oven is too small or inconvenient for your needs. As each hour passes you begin to get more and more frustrated that your kitchen is not conducive to your holiday cooking and baking needs. This is the perfect time to invest in a new kitchen to help you enjoy your year-round cooking and baking traditions once again.

    Your Kitchen Wish list

    Before you start knocking down walls and spending money on new appliances, it is important to design a plan. The first step in this plan would be to determine what you actually want. This will be known as your wish list. For instance, do you want more than one oven? Do you think you may need to knock out a wall? Maybe you want a center island that includes a stove top. Pretend the sky is the limit and write a list of everything you wish to have in your dream kitchen.

    Making Your Dream Kitchen a Reality

    Once you have created your wish list, find a contractor who has experience with kitchen remodeling. It is important to remember that a quality remodeling contractor is not always going to be the least expensive contractor. However, price should never be your final deciding factor. Instead, look into the contractor’s reputation. Ask to see completed projects. Find a contractor that is a good fit for your project, not one that is the cheapest.

    Once you find your contractor, it is time to make your kitchen wish list a reality. However, be prepared for your reality to be a variation of your wish list. You may not be able to create an eat in kitchen if the space is simply too small. However, you and your contractor will be able to design a kitchen that would be a great improvement on your current space, no matter what accommodations and compromises you may have to make to your kitchen wish list. For instance, while you may not be able to create a full eat in kitchen, you may be able to knock down a wall or two and expand your kitchen to include an island and more counter space. Maybe you would need to add a second wall oven on a separate wall as opposed to beneath your current oven. The key is to be willing to compromise to allow your new kitchen to be both efficient and reasonably obtainable.

    Finally, make sure your contractor is able to help you design a kitchen that will be the gift that keeps on giving. Your contractor should have the knowledge and expertise to complete all of the intricate details of a remodel, including the ability to conduct electrical work and even work with gas lines.
