Newark NJ Kitchen Remodeling

A kitchen is without question the most important room in any house. Besides a place to cook your delicious meals, this room is a gathering ground to socialize and is the main selling point for any house that enters the real estate market. 

 

Based on these important elements, it only makes sense to have a kitchen which is functionally sound, stylish, and beautiful to look at. The best way to meet these high expectations is moving forward with a kitchen remodel. 

 

Here are some tips and ideas to make your dream kitchen remodeling project a reality.  

 

Things to consider...

Newark-NJ-Kitchen-Remodeling

Setting a budget is important when determining how far you can go with your kitchen remodel. Having a larger budget allows more freedom to splurge on materials such as higher-end cabinets, flooring, countertops, and kitchen appliances. A lower-end budget will put constraints on your overall costs and may limit the expanse of your kitchen remodel. This may mean using budget-friendly materials or foregoing that center island or granite countertops. It is best to pad your budget with some extra funds to account for any unexpected expenses, which normally occur during a kitchen remodel.  

 

If your budget allows, hiring a kitchen designer would be a great decision for your remodeling aspirations. A designer can bring the necessary expertise and offer suggestions on the best kitchen layout, offer recommendations for buying materials or finding reputable contractors, offer cost-saving ideas you may not have thought about, and help lead you to an overall more beautiful and functional kitchen. 

The importance of hiring a good contractor speaks for itself. The quality of your kitchen remodel will only go as far as your contractor's ability and expertise. In short, a good contractor will offer a fair price, perform quality work, adhere to the project timeline (assuming no unexpected issues), and have prior experience with completing kitchen remodels. It would also help if the contractor can show you before and after pictures of previous jobs that were completed.  

Materials

Kitchen cabinets come in all styles, shapes, colors, and sizes. Choose cabinets that not only fit your style but conforms to your kitchen layout and improves overall functionality. It is best to do your research before selecting the best cabinet choices for your project. The cabinets are an important focal point when it comes to the look and feel of any kitchen. In addition, the cabinets are your primary source for storage considerations when it comes to your food, pots and pans, cooking utensils, and other miscellaneous kitchen gadgets. A well-thought-out cabinet layout will serve you well after your kitchen remodel is complete.  

 

Similar to the cabinet selection, kitchen countertops are plentiful when it comes to style, material, and colors. Granite, Silestone, laminate, concrete, and marble are just a handful of materials you can choose for your countertops. It is best to keep your kitchen cabinets in mind when selecting your countertops in order to keep a more uniform look and avoid any conflicting visual clashes between the two elements.

A floor is the foundation of your kitchen and takes the brunt of all heavy foot traffic, along with absorbing the variety of food and drink spills, which can occur on any given day. It is critical to choose a durable, stain-resistant, and visually appealing floor for your kitchen remodel. Also, just as important is choosing a floor that compliments the other elements of your kitchen including, cabinets, countertops, and backsplashes.

Spruce Up Your Kitchen With a Backsplash

Many people underestimate the importance of a backsplash when it comes to increasing the ‘wow’ factor of any kitchen design. Selecting a backsplash style and color that matches your overall kitchen design, makes your space more visually attractive, and at the same time, acts as a layer of protection from moisture or any other potential water damage that can occur.

The Mess Factor

As exciting as it is to embark on a remodeling project for your kitchen, it comes at the expense of convenience and order. Please be aware, inconvenience, disarray, and clutter are what you can expect during the process. Have no fear as this is only temporary, but in order to build your dream kitchen, the old and outdated version needs to be demolished first. This means, no appliances or space to prepare food and keeping the food takeout services on speed dial.  

Kitchen Remodel Costs

The cost to remodel your kitchen can vary greatly depending on the extent of your project.  

 

A minor remodel, which might include cabinet refacing, painting, new countertops, and light fixtures, can run anywhere between $5,000 – $10,000.  

 

A mid-range remodel, which might include new cabinets, countertops, flooring, new backsplash, and light fixtures, can cost between $15,000 – $30,000.  

 

An upscale remodel including, a complete gut of the kitchen, redesigned layout, new plumbing, and electric work, flooring, countertops, cabinets, the addition of an island, and all new high-end appliances, can cost between $35,000 – $100,000.  

 

These numbers can fluctuate dramatically depending on the size and scope of your project. It is best to consult with your Newark NJ kitchen remodeling contractor to create a custom plan for you and get a more accurate cost for your specific project.
