To achieve the dream kitchen dream kitchen that you want, first you should have a clear vision of what you want the end result to look like.
Analyze the existing space. Take plenty of measurements with a tape measure and get a clear idea of the dimensions of your current layout.
Pros vs. cons. Decide what you like about your current kitchen’s features and what you’d like to see changed.
Set your goals. Make a list of all your kitchen remodeling goals. Include everything from simple, easy-to-accomplish tasks like organization and decorative elements to over-the-top, impossibly expensive overhauls.
Create a collection of ideas. Print out or save photos of great kitchen setups from websites, clip photos from decorating or remodeling magazines or snap photos of kitchens you come across at the homes of friends and family, restaurants or home shows.
Prioritize your goals. Determine your top priorities. Be practical and realistic. Don’t assume that you’ll suddenly start making more regular use of your kitchen if it has pricey, stainless steel appliances.
Don’t forget remodeling takes time. A kitchen remodel will take time and likely prevent you from using your kitchen for whole days or weeks. Be sure you and your family plan adequately to anticipate for periods without the use of your kitchen.
