Ready to begin planning your project? These helpful hints from Kitchen Center Plus will make you aware of unforeseen headaches and have your project running in no time! We hope that the following tips will make your journey a pleasant one.
Gather a scrapbook of notes, photos, and articles that you have collected.
Get together with your family and ask them for their input and wish lists.
Come up with a budget you can live with.
Draw a rough sketch of your floor plan and take measurements (or, if building, get floor plan from architect or builder).
Call us to make an appointment, or stop into our showroom.
We will create a design, and draft perspectives, elevations, and a floor plan.
We will provide you with a price.
We will set up a meeting for you to discuss the design and pricing and discuss any potential modifications you would like to make.
Cover doorways into other rooms with plastic.
Pack everything that won’t be needed into boxes. This will keep things dust-free.
Keep essential items handy: basic food that can be microwaved, condiments, cereal, microwave-safe dishes and utensils, dishcloths, dishwasher soap, paper plates and cups, coffee, coffee pot and sugar/creamer, paper towels, napkins, and garbage bags.
You will be without water in the kitchen for a short time. You may need to do dishes in another sink or the bathtub for awhile.
Many contractors will wait until cabinets have arrived before tearing out your current cabinets. Be sure to clarify this point with your contractor.
Set up the microwave and refrigerator in another area, along with a table for preparation.
Stockpile restaurant coupons for the nights when you really want to eat out.
Relax and rely on your kitchen designer. There will be a beautiful kitchen when all the dust is gone!!
