How to Prepare For Your Kitchen Remodel

A kitchen remodel in your Denver home is an exciting adventure. However, it can also be intimidating and a little overwhelming. This is a major home project, and you may feel a little inconvenienced and not know what to fully expect for a few weeks. 

Here are a few ideas to help you best prepare for your upcoming kitchen remodel

Work with professional design specialists and
contractors to ensure a successful home remodel.

Work With the Professionals

Before the construction begins, always work with kitchen design professionals. These individuals can help you design your ideal kitchen with the perfect layout, cabinets, countertops, and light fixtures. They have unique and creative ideas that will help to customize this space for your family, baking needs, and much more. 

Keep in mind that not only should you work with kitchen design experts, but you must always hire professional contractors as well. This will ensure the entire remodel process from start to finish is completed correctly, and no corners are cut. 

Getting Ready for Your Kitchen Remodel

Before the project begins, spend time preparing your home. Pull out all personal items and place them in another area on your property where they will be safe. You may want to move food and dishware to areas in your home that are convenient and accessible, particularly while construction is underway. 

The more prepared you are for a kitchen remodel in your Denver home, the more you will enjoy the process. You will feel less stressed and will be able to handle any challenge or obstacle that comes along with more grace and understanding.

Invest a Few Dollars in Your Laundry Room

Homeowners are starting to see the value in spending a little money on the lesser visited rooms in the home. The laundry room is something that we typically hide away in a room far, far away. The laundry room is the room that we skip when giving a tour of the home. However, spending a few extra dollars in your laundry room can make this room pleasant, vibrant, and efficient, and it will turn laundry day from a chore into a treat.

Make better use of the space in your laundry room

Natural sunlight will boost your mood on laundry day. Place your workspace close to the window.

The laundry room is typically reserved for the smallest and least convenient room in the home. When you’re working with a small space, you need to get creative with storage space. You’re going to need a mix of various ways to store things.
When designing a laundry room, start by making a list of all the things that you see being stored in your laundry room:

  • Washer/Dryer
  • Sink
  • Hampers
  • Drying Rack
  • Ironing Board
  • Counter
  • Detergents
  • Broom
  • Mop
  • Bucket
  • Linens
  • Towels
  • Miscellaneous

Being specific about how you intend to use your laundry room will help you design cabinetry and counter space that is going to make your laundry room efficient and fabulous.
Remember, if you don’t have enough room to in the laundry to fit all these items, don’t feel overwhelmed. You will need:  a) to make a priority list of those items you want to see the least – or want to hide the most.
b) go for smart storage options. 

Modern and functional storage spaces

You want everything to be organized so that the detergents are close to the machines, that the drying rack is close to the countertop where you are sorting and folding.

Customize your cabinetry and storage space to design a modern, vibrant, and functional laundry room.

Using shelving for detergents makes them easy and convenient to grab and makes the best sense to be located right over the washer and dryer.

  • Custom design a broom closet to perfectly house your mop, bucket, broom, and vacuum
  • Create large deep drawers to store towels and linens
  • Create cabinets to house your laundry hampers so that the dirty laundry is out of sight, making your laundry room feel more clean and organized

Use natural light to your advantage

Create a workspace and counter space by the window so that you are working in the natural sunlight. You may be inclined to utilize the space under a window for your washer and dryer, but you’d be wasting the natural sunlight on inanimate objects, whereas letting the rays hit your face as you’re sorting, folding, and ironing laundry will leave you feeling much happier and invigorated.
Also, having a natural aeration/ventilation is a much better option than not having any.

Modernize your laundry room

Using light, warm, earthy tones will make your laundry room feel clean, fresh, and bright. You can also mix and match cabinetry, both colors, and materials to give the room more dimension and character. However, make sure everything complements each other. If you make your laundry room too busy with style, materials, and colors, you could make it feel frantic and claustrophobic.
