5 Common Kitchen Renovation Mistakes 

1. Underestimating Work Value 

When in the planning stage it is vital that you know your maximum budget and that you're being realistic about your renovation plans. Make sure you check out some similar works and ask for more quotes to get a general price. It is key that you calculate all work and if you're pushing your budget it might be a good idea to find ways to save money. 

2. Doing It Alone

We know that doing work alone seems like the most economical method but it can sometimes cost more if mistakes get made during the renovation. So when looking to get a kitchen renovation seek experienced, professional help and contact us. If money is tight absolutely discuss this with professionals and see if you can help or finish something alone, but keep in mind that this is a long-term investment that needs to be to be done right the first time. 

3. Not Knowing Your Needs 

An imagined perfect-looking kitchen is usually different from reality. Before embarking on your kitchen renovation take a moment to think about your situation, especially if you have a family, and ask for their needs. Another facet to think about is how much time and energy you can invest in maintaining it and how to save time later. 

4. Make It Impractical 

Not putting cupboards too high might seem obvious but, it's a good idea to think about the practicality of using your kitchen every day. Losing a connected workflow and area for cooking could be problematic in later reality. See the bigger image and try to keep your kitchen as practical as possible.

5. Overcrowding Small Space 

A major benefit of renovating a kitchen is opening up space in your home and making your kitchen more visually appealing. Overcrowding a small kitchen is a surefire way to making you feel claustrophobic again. A kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house and one that you spend a huge amount of time in. So, rather use neutral colors, add more light to keep it visually open, and don't overcrowd it.
