A significant part of learning involves making mistakes. You make them, and then you learn from them. However, make mistakes during kitchen renovations, and those mistakes can be costly.
If you’re just about to launch into a large kitchen remodelling project, be aware of the following common mistakes. You can then do your best to avoid them.
Thinking You Can Renovate Yourself
If you’ve never so much as picked up a screwdriver, then undertaking a significant kitchen renovation may not be the wisest idea. Even flatpack kitchens can be complex, with any mistake you make also being costly.
Even if you see a price disparity between a flatpack kitchen and hiring a custom kitchen cabinet maker, don’t be in too much of a hurry to become a DIYer. Your skill level and desire for a quality build could see a need for the experts.
Not Planning Enough Storage
One thing that frustrates many homeowners about their kitchens is a lack of storage space. Even if the kitchen itself is large, not every functional kitchen space has been planned to make the best use of it. Don’t make that mistake.
Planning is one of the most critical stages of a kitchen renovation – or any renovation. Make sure you have factored in enough storage space before you get the process underway.
