If you noticed last Holiday season that your kitchen just wasnâ€™t up to scratch with entertaining your extended family, then nowâ€™s the time to change that. Due to appliance and cabinet lead times, holiday closures and install times, May and June are the perfect times to get your kitchen ready for the 2013 Holiday season. All of us at K&N Sales
are more than happy to help with this project so weâ€™re dedicating the next few weeks of blogs to help you go through the steps to achieve the kitchen of your dreams!
Plan It Out
Your first step to bringing your dream kitchen to life is to create a budget. HGTV
suggests taking a look at your finances and seeing how much you can realistically spend and then asking yourself â€œhow long will I be in my house?â€ Depending on your answer, youâ€™ll want to think about your budget covering something as simple as an appliance upgrade or a whole kitchen remodel.
You Can Quote That
Now that youâ€™ve set your budget youâ€™ll want to take the photos youâ€™ve been pulling and take tours of local showrooms. Youâ€™ll want to go in to look at appliances and see what type of cabinetry you might want in your home. You may not want to purchase anything quite yet, but youâ€™ll want to start getting quotes so you can be sure youâ€™re staying within your budget.
Youâ€™ll also want to see what kind of permitting you might need depending on where you live. For all readers in the Houston city limits, please visit Houston Permitting Center
website to see information on how to secure your permits. If your neighborhood has a homeownerâ€™s association, youâ€™ll also want to check with them to see if there is any paperwork you need to complete or a permit you need to get before you can start construction.We hope these quick tips will help you start working on your kitchen remodel. Be sure to check back next week for a blog on what you should look for in a contractor.
