Kitchen Remodeling Project

Are you dreaming about remodeling your kitchen into your “dream kitchen?”

It isn’t as simple as hiring a contractor and getting your new kitchen in a weekend. Remodeling a kitchen is a huge undertaking that involve many details, decisions, and steps to creating the kitchen that you want. It helps to be aware of what to expect and prepare for the unexpected before starting such a large, exciting endeavor.

Setting a budget and accounting for additional expenses, expecting delays, and learning to overlook the mess are all tips to help prepare you for what to expect during your kitchen remodel.

The expert designers at Capitol Kitchens and Baths are here to help you every step of the way.  Schedule your Free design consultation today.

Planning Stage

So now you understand the importance of planning everything out before you get started! Determine your scope of work, and do what you can to get rough estimates from sub-contractors to help solidify your budget. Make a list of what can be put off and what needs to be done now. Acquire any plans and permits necessary to complete the work.  Find a expert kitchen designer to assist you in the process.

INITIAL SHOWROOM CONSULTATION

Whether you call, email, or walk-in to the showroom to browse, the process really gets started with a scheduled appointment for a showroom consultation. At this meeting with a Designer, bring your ideas and any list of your wants and needs; and allow enough time for your designer to get to know you and your project. Your designer will guide you through our displays, educating you on our product offerings, and learn about your likes and dislikes. We’ll discuss your potential budget and explain how the entire process will work.

THE DESIGN PHASE

The designer will then develop a detailed floor plan, along with cost estimates based on your design style preferences, your “wish list,” and your budget. Our Designer will create a set of drawings which may include elevations and 3-D perspectives.

ORDER/ INSTALLATION PHASE

Order:   The Order phase is fairly straight forward- now that we have the product selected, we order it! It is always best to allow plenty of time as it can take anywhere from 3 weeks up to 8 or 9 weeks to get your product. It all varies based on the vendor, the product chosen, and the time of year. During the design phase, make sure to talk to your designer about when you want to start the installation of your project so we have plenty of time to get everything delivered on time.

Installation:   The Installation Phase will turn your house upside down! How long this phase will take arrives greatly depending on your project, but your contractor will be able to give you more details about what to expect during this time. It will be a fascinating time for you and your family to see your space completely transform from what you know to what you have dreamed of and designed!
