You can remodel the whole kitchen yourself

That’s our favorite. You know how to put together a table from IKEA, so kitchen should be just as easy, right? Many people don’t see every step of the renovation you have to take. Remodeling can be very big. Only a professional can set up a kitchen that will be safe for you to be in. Another important part of kitchen remodeling is how your kitchen will harmonize with all of the other rooms in your house. It takes a lot of skill and experience to complete the remodeling in the same style as the rest of the house.

Follow only the latest trends in kitchen remodeling

How many times per year are you planning to remodel your kitchen? That’s right, you don’t even plan to remodel it that often. But trends in kitchen remodeling change more often than this. You don’t want to be living with a kitchen you don’t like that you choose to make only because it was trendy 2 years ago. Listen to your heart and family. What do you want your kitchen to look like? Have a picture in mind? That is the trend you should follow. If you plan to sell your house after you do the remodeling, you may want to find out about all the latest trends, but still, try to think of the future – will it look as modern two years from now?

You can figure out the lighting later

No, no, no. Think about the lighting before you even begin your kitchen remodeling. You don’t want to get poor lighting because your ran out of your renovation budget or because there’s simply no place left for your ideal lighting. You should also look for a kitchen remodeling contractor who has lighting setup experience, so you won’t have to pay different people to do one job. The contractor should understand how your future kitchen will be lit and remodel  according to the plan.

If you go over your budget, just install a cheaper floor

That’s a no too. Your kitchen floor design should fit all of the surroundings. You don’t want to have your floor different from your original kitchen design. Think of your kitchen as of something whole. It will not work if you use different color pallet in your kitchen and its floor. Just as lighting, floor should be something you think through before you start the remodeling process. It would also be perfect if one contractor would be able to do everything – kitchen, its lighting and floor. This way you will get a design you aimed for in the beginning.
