Determining Your Needs for the Kitchen Renovation

At first glance, you may think creating a beautiful kitchen is easy and only requires you to browse through some catalogues, watch remodelling shows, and search Pinterest for ideas. However, these designs are often more visually appealing than practical and durable and may not meet your needs. If you focus more on the aesthetic appearance, you may forget crucial elements that ensure the space is well-equipped and thoughtfully laid out. This is why you should decide on the goal and the main criteria for renovating your kitchen. Be sure to list your needs and think about how they may impact your choices. Here are a few things you may consider:
Additionally, if you are thinking of selling your property in future, it helps to know that kitchen renovations tend to impact the overall value. If you choose a bold design or an unusual layout for the kitchen, it could make the sale more time-consuming and complicated. This is because the kitchen is one of the most important areas potential buyers consider. Find the right balance between your tastes and needs and the universally appealing trends.

3 Major Considerations When Renovating Your Kitchen


The efficiency and amount of storage available in the kitchen will impact its functionality. Here are the different types of storage for a kitchen:

Kitchen Triangle

Also known as the golden triangle or the kitchen working triangle, this concept involves three work areas: the stove and oven, the sink, and the refrigerator. The rule of thumb is to form a triangle in the kitchen that allows you to move seamlessly between these locations. Our renovation specialists will help you design a thoughtful and functional layout that suits your preferences and requirements.


When selecting the materials for your kitchen renovation, ensure they are durable, aesthetically pleasing, and fit your budget. Consider the advantages and disadvantages to make the final decision.

Countertops and Cabinets

Since you will use the counters often, it is essential not to compromise on the quality. Choose a high-end material that is durable, waterproof, resistant to wear, and easy to maintain. Marble, granite, metal, ceramic, porcelain, wood, and laminate are a few popular choices.


As a responsible kitchen renovation contractor, we recommend durable flooring because it is exposed to heat, water, food, and other elements that make maintenance more challenging. You want to be sure to select an option that won’t show wear and is not easily damaged.


Although this may seem like a trivial detail, accessories such as handles and hinges have a significant impact on the appearance and appeal of the kitchen. It is better to buy top-quality accessories that complement the décor. It is also important to decide whether you prefer your drawers to have handles or knobs. Low-end materials will cost you more in the long run because of frequent replacements.

5 Steps in a Kitchen Remodel Project

Here is the ultimate kitchen renovation checklist to help you understand the different stages in the process.

Step 1 – Set Up, Tear Down, Removal, and Disposal

Our experts will ensure that your layout is suitable, any necessary permits are obtained, and the materials are scheduled for delivery. Then, we will begin the first stage by tearing down the old kitchen. We will ensure anything that is not being kept or reused is disposed of properly.

Step 2 - Trades Work

We hire licensed and qualified tradespeople to take care of specialty aspects of the renovation.

Repairs and Structural Changes

After removing the flooring, cabinets, and counters, we will inspect the area to see which portions need repairs. Our team will clean the area thoroughly, fixing scratches, scrapes, and holes in the drywall, ceiling, or subfloor. We will look for any damage and recommend any structural repairs to support your new kitchen features if needed.

Mechanical and Electrical Systems

Lighting in a new kitchen may require additional wiring or rewiring. Additionally, moving existing appliances and installing new equipment often requires electrical work. If you need under-cabinet lights and spotlights to create a brighter space, we will include them in the plan.
In addition to the electrical work, you need to consider the mechanical systems at this stage. We will work on the ductwork over the stove and microwave to complete the modern setup for better airflow and improve your family’s safety.

Plumbing Work

Plumbing plays a crucial role in a kitchen renovation project for the sinks, dishwasher, and fridge. Additionally, you may need the gas lines to be run to the oven or stove. We will assess and install the plumbing system design before adding cabinets and other features. Our experts will identify undersized pipes, faulty connections, and inefficient design aspects and recommend the best solutions to fix them.

Step 3 - Install Cabinets and Counters

Cabinets are attached to the subfloor and mounted on the walls, giving your kitchen structure. They provide storage, support your appliances, counters, and sinks, and help hide the electrical and plumbing systems running through the room. We will help you choose the best cabinets and hardware, ensuring they suit your needs, style, and budget. In addition to this, we will install trim, rails for lighting, and other cabinet accessories.
Countertops should be easy to maintain, durable, and aesthetically pleasing. Whether you opt for natural stone such as marble or granite or choose high-quality laminate, it will impact your kitchen renovation significantly. Remember that a lower quality material or improper installation will affect the look and feel of the room. Our specialists will help you choose the right option and carefully handle the corners, joints, and end pieces of the counters for accurate installation. We will ensure proper sealing and a close fit to avoid problems in the future. Additionally, we will help you decide on a suitable sink to make your kitchen more functional and attractive.

Step 4 - Add Backsplash and Flooring

If you want a stylish, elegant, and low-maintenance backsplash, we will help you select the right tiles. We have the expertise to ensure it compliments the rest of the kitchen. You can choose from porcelain, natural stone, ceramic, engineered hardwood, and more. We will install them using the most effective equipment and methods.

Step 5 - Consider the Appliances

Tools and equipment are the last steps of the kitchen remodel project after cabinets and flooring. We will ensure the power, water, and gas lines are hooked up with the right appliances. We have the expertise to assemble any equipment and install it in the most suitable area of the kitchen.
