Problem solving: In any renovation, no matter how minor, there always seem to be unforeseen problems. It's not as surprising as you might think. What happens behind the walls stays behind them until they're ripped apart. Up until then, you might not know that the insulation used was actually newspaper, or that the plumbing went through the wall that needs to be demolished. How your contractor and you handle these problems depends on how proactive your contractor is.
As we are becoming more inclined to opt for environmentally friendly fixtures in our homes, an increase in eco-friendly kitchen renovations had to occur. There has been a rise in the purchase and manufacture of kitchen cabinets that emit low levels of volatile organic compounds, lowering air pollution, and in the installation of LED lights, which are high energy savers. The 'natural' look of wooden floors and stone countertops is also popular in new kitchen renovations, both options that are environmentally sustainable.
Toronto architect Jacqueline Rhee says that when she sits down with potential clients and they say to her, \"Design us something gorgeous,\" she has to explain that they aren't giving her enough information. She says, \"What their idea of 'gorgeous' is and what I might have in mind could very well be two different things. Maybe they want French Country, but I have an idea that they might prefer a sleek contemporary kitchen.\" The more direction clients can give their designer about their likes, dislikes and what their goals for the space are, the better the design can live up to their expectations.
With kitchen remodeling, one of the most popular choices is DIY renovation. A DIY renovation usually means that the homeowner has decided to do the renovation themselves. Before deciding if you should carry out your own kitchen improvement project, you should first analyze the advantages and disadvantages of the job. While there are a considerable amount of advantages of a DIY kitchen project, there can also be several disadvantages,too.
Hiring a Kitchen Company and/or Contractor: Most people hire a contractor or kitchen designer through word of mouth. If you've been to a friend's recently renovated house and you like what you see, start asking questions: Who did the work? Did you work well together? Was he on time and on budget? Is the end result what you expected? Was he well-organized or did you scramble to get finishes at the last minute? Were there any major problems during construction, and if so, how did he handle them? If you liked the answers your friend gave you - assuming your friend isn't shell-shocked from the direct grilling she's just received - get his card. Now, find at least two other contractors and/or kitchen companies so you can compare quotes.
Of course, while maintaining control and saving money are great advantages to you completing your own kitchen renovation you will find that it take a great deal of time and planning. In addition to qualification and know-how, a professional remolding contractor will be able to finish the job much sooner, not to mention if anything is damaged they will be responsible. Another factor to consider in approaching your kitchen renovation is to perform part of the work yourself and hire an expert to perform the more complicated parts of the job.
