At MBC Homes, we have come across a series of mistakes homeowners often make during their kitchen renovation. By sharing these with you, we hope to help you steer clear of it all and complete your project as soon as possible. 

No matter how you look at it a kitchen remodel is a big investment – both financially and emotionally. It makes perfect sense that homeowners would want to do everything in their power to avoid any mistakes that could add unnecessary stress or cost to the project.

Here are six common kitchen remodeling mistakes to avoid:
1. Doing it yourself.
2. Changing your mind during the process.
3. The importance of storage.
4. Underestimating the lighting in the room 
5. Oversizing or a unfitting island.

While your dream kitchen is a work in progress, there’s no time like the present to start thinking through your design. The first step is to develop a realistic budget and timeline. Once you have an idea of how much you can afford to spend and how long the project will take, you can start making decisions about materials, finishes, and layout.

Designing your new kitchen starts with choosing a design style that fits your lifestyle and taste. After all, you’ll be spending a lot of time in your new kitchen! Are you open to color or just want neutral finishes? Do you want modern appliances or something vintage? And while you’re pondering those questions, think about whether the layout of your home can accommodate the size of your kitchen. Once you have an idea of what’s possible, it’s time to decide on materials. This can help narrow down the actual look of your dream space.

If you don’t have the skills to do it yourself, hire a professional. We know that needlessly adding to the cost of your renovation can feel overwhelming, but taking the time and energy to ensure every aspect of your kitchen is built right will save you time, money, and headaches down the road.
