Hurrah, you have made the decision to remodel the kitchen in your Tampa home! Now, what do you need to do to get the project kicked off? Having no idea where to begin, most homeowners will first look for new stainless steel appliances. A smaller group of homeowners will begin by building a Pinterest board filled with kitchen remodeling images. Still others will find they prefer to hire a professional to handle drafting remodeling plans and commencing the project immediately.
Once you have considered a preferred kitchen look and you are prepared to hit “go” on your kitchen remodeling project, it is time to break it all into helpful steps!
Think about what you need and want.
This step in the process is centered around how you intend to use the kitchen in your cool, updated mid-century modern St. Petersburg home. Give consideration to a potential layout and features that will work well for your family today and in the future. Try to get as many ideas as possible!
Plan, plan and plan a lot more!
If you feel you are prepared to take the plunge, you will want to begin pulling together what is referred to as a scope of work. This part of the process will also include determination of a preliminary budget. It will be quite important to remain calm if one, or both, changes during the planning stages.
Find a Tampa Bay kitchen remodeling specialist who can help.
Even if you are a DIY kind of family, you will need to consult with a Tampa residential kitchen remodeling specialist at one time or another.
Prepare a kitchen schematic.
This part in the planning will include planning for appropriate space, basic floor plans and elevations, sketches and information on cabinet dimensions. Make layout and space planning your primary concerns, even though you will want to focus on looks.
Talk to a Tampa general contractor.
A DIY kitchen remodeling project may hold a special appeal, but few people are actually prepared to handle every step on their own. Find a licensed general contractor, like Rossi Construction, who will be able to carry the project through to completion.
Be prepared to keep track of a checklist.
When construction is nearly complete, there will always be a checklist of minor items that will need to be handled before everything is officially complete. If there is a larger issue, do not be afraid to talk to your Tampa Bay general contractor!
