It is often said that when building a new home or remodeling an existing one, the rooms you want to focus on most are the bathroom and the kitchen. It is true, making it a priority for a great kitchen not only allows you to enjoy it while you occupy the home, but also gives a boost to your resale value. People spend a great deal of their time at home in the kitchen, and the activities that take place there require more thought than where to put the furniture. So, how does one navigate the various options for their kitchen when building? Fortunately, a little planning and some advice from your builder can ensure the choices you make will meet your needs and provide the best in comfort, functionality, and long-lasting quality.
Before considering flooring samples and paint swatches, it is important to find the inner working parts that make your kitchen function best. Choosing a kitchen layout is the first step making sure that it allows for a good flow of movement and the ideal location for appliances and plumbing. A great way to help you with this is to visit other model homes or for sale homes and note what works for you and what you want to avoid. Once you have a layout in mind, speak with your builder about the materials used. Considering a higher expense on the components of your kitchen now can mean significant savings on repairs and a substantial reduction in the headaches they cause.
Even with an excellent layout, if the design elements of your kitchen do not align with your personal taste it will not be a room you enjoy spending much time in. From colors to cabinets and fixtures to flooring, the sky is the limit. The best thing you can do here is to do your homework. Again, visiting existing properties is helpful, but also spend some time on the internet and in the showroom to determine what look you like the best. Do you favor a modern stylish look or a warm, old-fashioned feeling? Are you partial to dark hardwoods or bright tile? Priorities come into play here again so make an ordered list of what is most important to you and what you are not as particular about to make the best choices for everything.
