Kitchen Remodeling: How to Design on Paper

Kitchen remodeling can be done by professionals on architectural blueprints and a layman can even do it on the back of a napkin. In order to produce a reasonably good kitchen remodel, you require a pencil, a piece of paper, a ruler, a tape measure and some home magazines.

First of all, you must get outside ideas and information to help you create a model of your own kitchen. Read home magazines, make visits to homes of friends or even home exhibitions, and of course shops and stores which deal with kitchen furniture. Finally, you must know what exactly your needs are, and then you can decide which model would suit your ideas of an ideal kitchen.

The arrangement of your kitchen will be determined mainly by the space which is available. Draw some rough sketches of your kitchen plan and try to imagine what it will look like. You can then vary and shift your furniture in the ensuing sketches till you find the arrangement which best suits your needs.

Measure all the items in the kitchen that you require, for example, the appliances, the cabinets and the sinks. The measurement of the kitchen itself is important as well, because some things obviously cannot be moved, such as windows, doorways and bearing walls, so that you can plan around them.

For your kitchen drawing figure out a scale, this is always done by remodeling companies. This will enable you to fit the appliances, cabinets, etc. into the kitchen, while keeping the sizes and dimensions in mind. You will then get a fair idea of exactly how much can go into the kitchen space that is available and what can be done with it. So, now you find out the prices, which your changes have brought about. Based on your budget you can adjust your drawing and add the necessary changes.

A remodeling company is not cheap, but you may be lucky and before you begin working on the kitchen remodeling, you might find remodelers who will do the initial planning at a very reasonable cost, in which case you don’t have to go through all the initial planning yourself. Some may have better plans, and you may even find them very suitable. But, it is still good to have a fair idea of the approximate cost and general planning of the new kitchen before you call a professional for a kitchen remodel. So, when you are interviewing contractors you can make a good choice, because you know all the details entailed in your kitchen remodeling.
