    Step 1: Ask Yourself WHY You Want A Kitchen Remodel?

    To start with first things first.  Why do you want a kitchen remodel? You will have to discover more than just the color you want your cabinets to be. Think about it. Are your kitchen cabinets out of style or have poor quality? Or maybe your countertops became too small? Your layout was designed poorly? Asking yourself these questions might not seem like being helpful at first. But, once you get your answers, it will be a big start for the next steps.

    Step 2: Cabinets Search

    Choosing kitchen cabinets is the most important and probably largest (in our opinion) cost of a kitchen remodel. So it is important to know what your options are. Do you want to replace your cabinets completely? Or you just want to refurbish or repaint your existing ones? Once you decide on this, your search will narrow down. Keep in mind that cabinets are essential for your final look. You will want to find a company that offers quality and that matches your budget limit.

    Step 3: WHO Is Going To Do A Kitchen Remodel?

    Besides asking yourself why you want to remodel, you also have to decide on who is going to do it? You basically have 2 options:

    1. DIY (Do It Yourself)
    2. Find an Architect, Designer, or General contractor to do it

    → If you are not sure which direction to take or not ready for your first-time remodeling to be a DIY one, we suggest taking a moment and reading these Tips for Hiring a Contractor. There is a drawn-up list of some of the best strategies to make sure you get a trustworthy contractor that will help you turn your vision into a reality.

    Step 4: Take Advantage Of FREE Advice/Service

    Check online-based design services for help laying out your kitchen. Most of those online-based companies have professionals that are familiar with today’s decorating trends. We at Nelson Cabinetry offer a free 3D design which can be of huge help in deciding your kitchen layout and style in general.

    Step 5: HOW MUCH Are You Willing to Spend?

    Understanding what costs are involved will help you a lot with setting up your budget. There will be a lot of them, just so you know. Here is the list of some:

    • Size of the kitchen remodel
    • Type of kitchen remodel
    • Scope of work
    • Material selected
    • Labor involved
    • Type of contractor you select
    • Design of the kitchen remodel

    → Have you determined yet how much you are willing to spend on your remodel? If not, start thinking about it! If you hire a contractor, be sure that he will ask about your budget. It is advisable that you share your kitchen remodel budget with them if you have it. And, like we already mentioned, that 1-minute quote will get you a quick estimate for your new cabinets with no measurements required!



    Kitchen remodeling, especially a first-time one, is not an easy task. But, once you go over these 5 steps, the rest will follow. Just keep in mind these four words; WHY, WHO, HOW MUCH? Once you dig down and find the answers to these questions, you will eliminate all your fears and start your remodeling today!
