Whether you’re just upgrading or refreshing or even doing a whole kitchen remodel, planning and preparation are key to success.

For practically any construction, remodeling, or decorating endeavor, these are challenging times. Who knows what kind of mayhem diverse world events might impose on project timelines? Giving yourself plenty of extra time will relieve a lot of your project’s unnecessary stress. We strongly advise clients not to attempt to tie the completion of their project to a rigid event such a wedding, holiday celebration, graduation, etc.

Since the kitchen is the social hub of the house, a well-thought-out design will enhance activities and occasions in your home for many years to come. To help you get started on your next project, our designers at Innovative Kitchen & Bath in Kirkland share some ideas with you for updating your kitchen space.

A Few Easy Upgrades

Update a few pieces of your décor to quickly renew your kitchen. Think about replacing the bar stools, dining room set, rugs, accent lighting, cabinet hardware, art, and accessories. In our showroom, there are numerous items that are ready for immediate purchase. Our designers can help you if you are having trouble finding something or if you need some inspiration.

Refresh a Kitchen

While a Refresh does not include removing walls or changing cabinets, it does give you a fresh, modern space. Countertops, tiling, plumbing fixtures, and lighting are typical refresh elements. To give your space a new look, look for a company that can reface your cabinets. This is an affordable way to change an outdated color.

The most popular element of a refresh is new countertops. There are numerous easy-care surface options available in a range of price points. Granite substitutes that are increasingly popular and reasonably priced include Cambria, Silestone, and Caesarstone. Even if all you did was change a countertop, you may fool your visitors into thinking you completely redesigned your kitchen!

A Full Kitchen Remodel

It might be time for a complete kitchen renovation if your kitchen no longer serves your needs, your cabinetry is damaged beyond repair, your appliances are broken, or you are simply tired of your outdated space. Your designer at Innovative Kitchen & Bath will assist you in making decisions so that you can meet your design objectives, remain within your budget, and have a stunning new space.

The advantage of remodeling is that you essentially start again! Your designer will ask you questions about your lifestyle, such as how often you entertain or host holidays, how much cooking and baking you do in your kitchen, and what kind of storage you need. All of this is done to make sure that your new design is gorgeous, functional, and perfectly suited to you and your lifestyle.

Depending on the lead times for the cabinets at the time your order is placed a kitchen redesign could take up to 18 weeks. Having a plan in place will assist you in managing expectations and minimize stress.

Whatever the size of your kitchen remodel might be, our designers are a great resource for you. They will aid you in selecting the suitable scope and budget if you decide that the time is right for your kitchen remodel. Innovative Kitchen & Bath in Kirkland offers top-notch cabinetry, countertops, tiling, lighting, and other essentials for your kitchen, bathroom, or home renovation.
