How to Prep For Your Kitchen Remodel in Baltimore
Deciding to get your kitchen remodeled is a big decision. There is a lot of planning concerning budget, design, and construction. Even though the main decisions have been made, now the prep begins. There are things that need to be done to make your renovation go more smoothly.
At Trademark Construction in Baltimore, our main goal is to make sure your kitchen remodelcomes out the way you pictured it. Our construction and design team make sure all the puzzle pieces are put together when it comes to your remodel. Our team is skilled and professional and wants your kitchen remodel to go according to plan.
As we remodel your space, we wanted to give you some information on how to best prepare for our arrival in Baltimore.
Making a list of everything you need in your home for your remodel is essential. Are the appliances that need to be installed present? Things like sinks, faucets, and cabinets, should be in your home ready to be installed, unless you are doing custom work. Also, make sure you have scheduled all your deliveries already, such as fridge, dishwasher, or other large appliances. Having everything organized and ready to go will make your life, and your contractors lives much easier.
Having a consultation with your contracting team will help set the expectations from both parties for your kitchen remodel. At Trademark Construction, we make sure we follow your schedule. You decide when your remodel is completed. Discussing your schedule with our team will ensure everyone is on the same page, and timeline. You can ask us to estimate how long the remodel will take, depending how extensive the job is. Communicate to us what you feel you need in your kitchen remodel and will do our best to make it happen. Also, having a weekly meeting with us is always encouraged so we know we are on track with your expectations of your remodel.
Not only do you need to communicate to your remodel team, but you need to communicate with the people around you. Letting your neighbors know you are having your home remodeled is a courteous and smart move. This way the neighborhood can be prepared for the noise and crew in your area. They will be grateful for the heads up and appreciate you for it. Also, communicate to your family what is happening in your home, especially if you have children. Let them know they can’t go into the kitchen area for a while, this way they can stay safe and protected.
When your remodel is about to begin, make sure you clean out everything that is going away for good. Things like cabinets need to be completely cleared out. Make it a fun project by de-cluttering, and deciding what you need and don’t. There’s no need to create another task to do after your remodel, pack away the things you know you are keeping, and trash the rest.
In a previous blog, we went over the importance of a new kitchen space. Make sure you have designated an area for eating, and making meals, that is away from the construction site. This space should be functional, and not too tiny. Remember, plan to make simple meals, and prepare to use a microwave pretty often till your remodel is completed.
Implementing these prepping steps will help your kitchen remodel in Baltimore go even that much smoother. Contact Trademark Construction to get started today!
