The kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s where the kids come in after school and tell you about their day while you make them a snack. On special occasions, everyone gathers in the kitchen to see and enjoy the delicious creations you have for them. Holiday meals are often spread across countertops. It’s one of the most used spaces in your home!
Here is a checklist of things to consider before planning your new kitchen:
- 1. Budget. You need to know how much money you can spend on your new kitchen.
- 2. Work with a pro on design. You may find designs you love in magazines or online. A professional designer, like Curtain Call Creations, can work with you to make the ideas and concepts work in your space, as well as offer helpful info on ideas you may not have thought of. We work with the best contractors in Chicago to create dream kitchens!
- 3. Make your new kitchen more green (and save on energy costs!) by choosing new energy efficient appliances.
- 4. No budget for new? New cabinets and countertops breathe life into a kitchen and allow you to show your style. If all new cabinets aren’t in your budget, consider just having new doors constructed, or getting your existing cabinetry painted.
- 5. Lighting is one the most important things to think about when designing your new kitchen. There are so many different choices that it can be frustrating. Working with us, or an interior design professional in your area, can eliminate the stress of selecting different light fixtures.
- 6. FlooringThere are so many types of flooring to choose from. The material you select can have a big impact on your budget. It’s common to want hardwood floors in your entire home, but they may not be the best choice for a family since they’re a bit delicate. Consider ceramic tile, stone, cork, LVT or one of the many other more durable flooring surfaces.
- 7. Functionality Your new kitchen needs to make life easier. There are so many minor details that add major convenience. Curtain Call Creations can help you with finding ones that simplify life and improve the functionality of your kitchen.
