5 Things to Consider When Renovating your Kitchen

Kitchen remodels are one of the most common types of remodeling projects and as the heart of the home, there are many important decisions to make. Once your family has made the decision to renovate the kitchen, we can help you sort through all those decisions to ensure you’re making the best of your remodel budget.

The design aspect of a kitchen remodel can be enjoyable, and our design experts at Center Island Contracting will provide you with the latest materials to make every aspect of it ideal for your specific goals. Our team takes an extremely detailed approach in designing your kitchen to ensure that the functionality and appearance meets your entertaining needs and personality.

Below are 5 things to consider when renovating your kitchen in a timely matter, staying within budget and on track.


The budget you’re working with will set the stage for your kitchen renovation project, and it will allow us to keep the project on a realistic track so we can give you the straightforward answers you deserve. Carve out the budget first and foremost, then you can decide all the other factors involved in the remodel. The budget will help keep things organized, and let you choose where you want to save and where you’d like to splurge.


Another kitchen remodel consideration should be storage space. Not only do we want the remodel to look good, we also want it to be functional. The proper storage space will make your new kitchen functional and efficient, in that every plate, stemware and kitchen appliance has a place to go. Work with our design experts to create enough cabinet space for your needs.


Appliances are a major part of a kitchen remodel, and the placement of your appliances might mean electrical work needs to be done. If going green is a priority with your kitchen renovation, look for energy saving appliances to upgrade the space with. Built-in appliances such as wine fridges are another thing to consider in a kitchen renovation, so discuss with our design team ahead of time.

Existing Layout

Something else to consider when undergoing a kitchen renovation in order to keep your budget within reasonable means is to stick to your existing layout and make upgrades from there. That doesn’t always mean cabinetry or kitchen islands can’t be moved or expanded, it just means all the plumbing and electrical stays in place.


Whatever kitchen design ideas you may have, our design specialists will work with you to create a layout that meets your exact specifications. Consider your lifestyle in the overall design portion of the kitchen remodel, so that you can entertain your guests and maintain a kitchen work flow the exact way you want it. You can start by assessing what aspects of your kitchen currently work for you and what doesn’t, so that your kitchen remodel is an upgrade to your lifestyle.
