A kitchen remodeling project is very exciting! The thought of breathing new life into your space comes with endless possibilities. And, while these projects can be a lot of fun, it’s important to keep certain things in mind to avoid mistakes. For example, staying on budget, prioritizing proper lighting, and not getting swept up in current trends are all important components to consider.

Straying from the Budget
Make a budget for your kitchen remodel before you do anything else. Spend your money on the aspects of your kitchen that are most vital to you: an island, a designated pantry, more cupboard and drawer space, or improved lighting, for example. Continue to refer to your budget while you work to make sure you’re remaining on schedule with each remodeling task.
Lighting plays a huge role in how your kitchen will feel upon completion, yet it often goes overlooked. We spend a lot of time in our kitchens, and bad lighting will stick out like a sore thumb. There are typically three types of lighting to keep in mind for your kitchen remodel:
- Ambient lighting help set the mood while eating.
- Task lighting helps you see what you’re doing while cooking.
- Decorative lighting accents your beautiful kitchen design but doesn’t offer much functionality.
This one can go both ways. Looking up remodeling trends is a great way to spark ideas. But, it’s also important to keep in mind that trends come and go. In an ideal kitchen renovation situation, your kitchen will turn out timeless. That way, if you ever need to sell your home, your kitchen is still beautiful, functional, and not completely outdated.
