6 TOP REMODELING MISTAKES FOR THE KITCHEN & BATH

Are you thinking about remodeling?  Here are some areas that get overlooked while considering a makeover:

  • Ignoring traffic patterns.
  • Not updating lights.  Consider LED lighting.
  • New countertops on old cabinets.  Replace cabinets with current style and color at the same time.
  • Remodeling in the wrong order.  Look at the total package even if the purchases are in the future.
  • Not venting properly in the kitchen and bath areas.
  • Unrealistic budget.  Unless homeowners are willing to do much of the labor themselves, their budget should reflect qualified trade labor wages.  Stone counter surfaces; cabinetry and appliances differ widely in costs.

Do your research.  Professional designers can provide guidance and knowledge of the variety of products that are available.   Betty Nairn, is a CKD (Certified Kitchen Designer) and has been designing spaces for over 18 years.   She is recognized in the industry as a leader.  She may be contacted at designsbybetty@yahoo.com  or through Cabinet-S-Top, 1977 Medina Road, Medina, OH 44256.  www.cabinet-s-top.com   1-800-886-3630   (article reprinted from Marble Institute of America)
