TIMELINE

DEFINE YOUR PROJECT

Approximately 60 percent of kitchen remodels involve changing the footprint of the kitchen. Spend time upfront to thoroughly define your project. Do you want to renovate one or more existing rooms? Move walls? Add on? Are you tackling a full re-model or just upgrading a few things? Determine your resources and establish how much you’re willing to spend.

For a large project, you’ll want to explore options for at least 4 weeks, but smaller projects, like a bathroom, can be defined in 1 week.

想象一下成品空间

一旦你知道你想要解决的项目有多大,就是时候与设计师见面了,开始谈论你的地板,材料,风格,颜色和饰面。威廉希尔必杀初赔这个阶段可能非常耗时,因为必须采取测量,必须估计管道和电气,并且必须咨询承包商。

We recommend allowing a minimum of 8 to 10 weeks for this stage for a big project, or 4 to 6 weeks for a small project.

把事做好

Expect a lot of activity in your house while contractors are working. Generally, lead time for home delivery ranges from 3 to 6 weeks. Your designer will know the approximate delivery date after the cabinet order has been submitted. Communicate schedules with your contractor and designer to prevent time without a functioning kitchen.

BUDGET

CONSIDER YOUR OPTIONS

Careful planning and allocation of the budget prevents overspending and wasting money; however, good planning and careful research could also provide opportunities in which money is saved.

询问书面估计

你Desi威廉希尔必杀初赔William Hill必杀初赔gn-Craft dealer will give you a written summary of the costs for your new cabinetry. Do expect the same from any contractors you hire to work in your home.

计划您的费用

In general, we recommend planning to spend the same on a new kitchen as you would on a new car. If you look at a car in the $20,000 range, that’s where your kitchen budget should start. Spend more or less as finances permit.

PRIORITIZE ACCORDINGLY

Appliances, plumbing fixtures and decorative items such as door handles all come in a broad range of prices. Set your priority items and research anticipated expense.

比较并准备好

Have a clear set of specifications before comparison shopping; be sure to compare exactly the same commodities. Set aside contingency money; perhaps 10-20% of the project.

GETTING STARTED

CUSTOM CHOICES

Make your kitchen work for you. Incorporating an island or a coordinating ventilation wood hood into your kitchen design gives you more prep space and adds a functional focal point. Choose from standard, pre-designed options or create one-of-a-kind solutions for your dream kitchen or bath.

STORAGE SOLUTIONS

As you plan for your remodeling needs, think about how to make the most of every last inch of storage space. Full access trays provide functionality for blind corner cabinets.

YOUR STYLE

拉在一起的看起来你爱的集合。您拥有的照片,想法和样本越多,难以确定您的风格。

WHAT TO EXPECT

DEMOLITION

Tear out, or demolition, is a process that can be handled in one of two ways. 1) If you are qualified to tear out a room and dispose of the waste, then this could be an opportunity to cut costs and act as your own remodeling contractor. 2) Allow your designer or remodeling contractor to complete this part of the job.

DELIVERY

Inspect your cabinets as the driver removes them from the truck. Use the shipping tally provided by the driver to check off items as they are unloaded to verify that all items are received. Cartons showing signs of damage should be opened and the contents inspected at time of delivery. Note any issues on the bill of lading.

INSTALLATION

Installation is a great phase; the transformation comes into focus and signals the end of the remodeling process is near. Most families find themselves with a renewed sense of purpose and motivation as more elements are installed, particularly the cabinets. We welcome you to share your remodeling story on the Design-Craft facebook page.

PREPARE TO HAVE YOUR ROUTINE INTERRUPTED

您的厨房或浴室中的厨房或浴室,您家中的陌生人和您的车道中的垃圾箱并不容易更改,以便为其作为一个家庭谈论,提醒每个人都在后期改造它们的转型室。

HAVE BACK UP PLAN FOR MEALS

Plan on eating out while your old kitchen is being torn out and your new kitchen is being installed. Prepare by scouting for local restaurants and diners online.

记住你的宠物

Pets may be upset by all the noise and disruption to the household; some pets do better visiting a friend during the demolition and installation parts of the project.
