Tips for Creating the Perfect Kitchen
Be Financially Flexible
Your budget is probably the first thing you’ll consider as you begin your kitchen remodel, and it’s important to set a realistic budget that allows you to get everything you want. Kiba Studios can help you get started with a recommended range so you can determine your you’re comfortable level for your remodel (this is also called an allowance).
Many people make the mistake of budgeting too tightly, and this can cause a number of problems throughout the project. First and foremost, a small budget may not provide you with the freedom to purchase everything you want, and you might end up feeling like you settled. You should also keep in mind, however, that kitchen renovations are one of the most lucrative home improvement projects you can take on, with some homeowners recovering up to 83% of their investment.
Remember that you’ll only remodel your kitchen once, so make sure that your budget allows you to create a space you’ll be happy with for years to come!
Add Plenty of Storage
You can rarely have too much storage space in your home, especially when it comes to your kitchen. If you have a growing family, or if your countertops are cluttered with appliances, spices, and anything else you regularly use, then consider adding new kitchen cabinets that provide you with enough space for everything you use on a regular basis. Kiba Studios offers lots of great storage organization options for your cabinets. If you’re not sure how much storage space you should add, or you would like to take a look at all of the great cabinet organization options, just check with your Kiba designer!
Mix Up Your Seating Areas
The kitchen is one of the most common gathering areas in any home, and if you don’t currently have a seating area, then consider adding one as part of your remodel! You can easily turn an island countertop into a breakfast bar, and larger kitchens almost always have space for breakfast nooks or even more countertop seating. Even if you don’t frequently entertain, we can almost guarantee that you’ll love having additional seating options in your kitchen!
Choose the Best Kitchen Renovation Company
The previous sections are all important points to keep in mind, but this tip is by far the most important one we’ll discuss in today’s entry. Kitchen remodeling projects are significant investments, and you don’t want to settle for the first remodeling company you find.
Kiba Studios is owned by the same great people who own your local Carpet One Floor & Home® and Flooring America® locations. Many of our owners are second- and third generation-owners, which makes them incredibly knowledgeable about the industry! You can trust that each Kiba Studios is an extension of the values and commitment to customer service you’ve come to expect whenever you walk through their doors. Every product you see in our showrooms is top-of-the-line, and you can count on all of our designers to help you find exactly what you need to create the kitchen of your dreams.
While some kitchen remodeling companies will leave it up to you to find contractors who will bring your design to life, we’ve taken care of that part, too. We’re familiar with the best contractors in each area we serve, and we’ll provide you with their contact information and everything else you need to get your project underway.
