Kitchen renovations are by far the biggest expense (and stress) during any type of remodel. They also pay off the most though as a kitchen really can make or break a home. A small reno on the kitchen can be just painting out the cabinets and replacing the hardware. That may not cost very much but it is still a HUGE undertaking for most DIYers. I helped my mom paint out her entire kitchen and though it did take forever it was absolutely worth it!

Kitchen renovations are a big project. There are so many different elements involved from the appliances to the cabinets, and even the floors and walls.

After all, if you are replacing cabinets, you will probably also redo the backsplash. Most renovations include fresh paint and wall treatments for the entire room. You don’t have to change the walls, of course, but it’s an easy way to freshen things up. Here are three things you must do if you are considering a kitchen reno.

Consider Smart Appliances

Since you are renovating, it is going to be a good time to upgrade your appliances. Although it might seem cheaper to replace them individually or only replace one or two of them, it usually isn’t.

First of all, you can usually find appliance packages that include everything you need for the kitchen at a discounted price. Secondly, you are going to create a more expensive problem by leaving old appliances behind. Just upgrade the whole room.

While you’re at it, look at smart appliances to save energy and increase the value of your home.

Consider Custom Cabinets

The kitchen cabinets are the center of most kitchens. They are essential for storage and offer a lot of other unique solutions.

Customized professional cabinet designs can give you a space that works better for you, whether you are a home chef or just like to have an organized space. Plus, you can customize every detail to your liking.

Consider Built-in Accessories

Aside from storing food and dishes, customized cabinetry and kitchen storage can include a variety of accessories and conveniences.

A step stool that is built into the drawer or empty space, for example, will be convenient and useful. You can also choose customized hardware for the cabinets to make them stand out more. If you enjoy cooking, ask about pot fillers and instant hot water dispensers.

Other popular accessories are pull-out recycling and trash bins.

There is no wrong or right way to handle your reno project, but you should at least think about the tips provided here. Kitchen renovations have a lot of areas to cover and these are three of the most important ones to keep in mind.
