If you’re thinking about renovating your kitchen, there are some key decisions you need to make before you get started. Trust me, a well thought-out plan is necessary for any kitchen design project to be successful, but if you “don’t know what you don’t know”, it can quickly become an overwhelming process!
No worries, we’re here to help! In this blog, we’ll guide you through 5 key decisions that you need to make before you hire a kitchen designer, renovation company or pick up your hammer to DIY.
So let’s get started!
“Kitchens should be designed around what’s truly important – fun, food, and life.”
– Daniel Boulud –
Before you start designing your dream kitchen, you need to figure out how much you’re willing to spend. It’s important to set a realistic budget that takes into account the cost of materials, labor, and any unexpected expenses that may arise during the kitchen reno project.
Having a clear understanding of how much money you have to work with now, will avoid a lot of stress later.

3. Your Style
Your kitchen should reflect your personal style and taste. Consider things like color, the materials you like (wood, natural stone etc.), and the overall aesthetic and feel you want to achieve when choosing your design elements.
Whether you prefer a modern, minimalist look or a cozy, traditional feel, make sure your design choices align with your vision for the space.
Whether you’re working with a kitchen designer, building contractor, or are planning to DIY, with careful preparation and organization you can create the kitchen of your dreams.
