Kitchen Remodeling Without the Headaches


No matter how small your kitchen remodeling plan is, it is going to be a big deal. There’s a lot of planning and work involved in getting the kind of kitchen you want. It is understandable if you are struggling to come up with the right ideas. Here at Laurie’s Certified Construction, in Colchester, VT, we’re prepared to handle your most difficult kitchen remodeling projects.

Knowing that your kitchen needs an update is the easy part; you can easily look around and see that the cabinets need to be replaced or that your existing appliances are outdated. Figuring out exactly what kinds of structural changes are necessary and how to go about it can be a bit more challenging. With our help, you can come up with plenty of great ideas for an attractive, modern kitchen.

Working out the Concept

Some people don’t get an immediate picture in their heads when they look at their existing kitchens; and that’s okay. A good place to start is to take advantage of the fact that we have done this for several years, so we can help make all of the difficult decisions. With so many kitchen remodeling jobs under our belt, it is easy for us to help you come up with the right concept.

Working through the Stages

Giving you the kitchen you want is a step-by-step process. Our experience allows us to guide you every step of the way. One of the first things to think about is whether you will reuse some parts of the existing kitchen. Homeowners sometimes choose to leave some part of the kitchen intact instead of doing a complete renovation. Moving the kitchen sink, for example, adds extra expense to a remodel because of the additional plumbing requirement.

The electrical system may also need some work, especially if you are putting in new fixtures or moving your appliances. Remember that all of these adjustments will have to be inspected to ensure that they meet existing building codes before the kitchen can be completed. The inspection process often extends the duration of the remodeling project depending on the inspector’s schedule.

Have a Realistic Budget

The size of your kitchen remodeling project will depend on your overall project budget. If you are changing countertops, windows and doors for example, look for products that are within your price range. When you know exactly how much you can spend, it will be easier to make the right selections.

Splurging for specific items is absolutely understandable. Take the opportunity to splurge on certain things you really want; this can be cabinet hardware, the cabinets themselves, those incredible bay windows you saw at the home improvement store, or any other specialty item you really want.

Don’t go Overboard

It is easy to give in to the temptation to make big changes to your kitchen when sometimes only modest changes are necessary. Talk to us if you can’t decide as we pride ourselves on the ability to assess our client’s needs. We will take into account all the factors that will play a role in the outcome of the project.

Relying on your contractor will remove a lot of the stress of a remodeling project. Good communication is one of the most important aspects of the entire process. When you give us a call you will realize that a kitchen renovation project does not have to be as challenging as you might think.
