Can’t Figure Out Your Kitchen or Bathroom Space?

When it comes to remodelling your kitchen or bathroom, the possibilities are endless. With styles changing often and people getting creative with their layouts, you want to standout yourself. Given the fact that you spend a large portion of the day in your kitchen and your bathroom is a reason for you to dedicate time and effort into figuring out how to make the very best out of the space that you have in order to end up with an appealing bathroom and kitchen.  Not only that, but because your kitchen and your bathroom are the rooms in your house that probably have the most influence on the impression that you leave on guests, it is crucial that these rooms are well designed, properly put together, are overall aesthetic, and have a welcoming vibe to them. Luckily, if you do find yourself wanting to remodel your bathroom or kitchen and you have no idea what you want to do with your space, the team at Style & Structure have put together a basic list of tips that will help you make the best of your kitchen and bathroom space.

Plan Your Space

It is absolutely crucial that you spend a lot of time with your contractor designing your kitchen or bathroom. Your contractor should have a professional home designer who will be able to look at your space, evaluate it thoroughly, and come up with the best designs possible. The home designer will also be able to criticize any ideas that you have yourself to make sure that you do not make any inefficient or poor choices when it comes to remodelling your kitchen or bathroom. It is important to focus on space plans before worrying about what the space will actually look like, and these space plans are simply a rough idea of what the best layout is. When planning your space, you want to make sure that you have adequate room for all of the things one would do in a kitchen and bathroom in order to avoid ever feeling crammed. When it comes to the kitchen specifically, consider scenarios where your kitchen may have to accommodate more than just one person.

Get Estimates

Once you have planned out your kitchen or bathroom space, ask your contractor to give you a rough estimate. Keep in mind that the more specific your space plan is, the better the estimate will be. This means that, when working with the home designer, you should try to get an electrical, plumbing, and lighting plan as well in order to give the builders a more specific idea of what your space will look like. Although things at this point are subject to change, getting a fairly accurate estimate is important so that you have an idea of how much you will be paying in order to remodel your bathroom or kitchen.

Develop Plans and 3D Drawings

Now that your space is planned and you have rough estimate of costs, it is time that you and your designer go into the specific details of your kitchen or bathroom. Through drawings and 3D modelling, you and your designer will be able to go through the endless possibilities of what your kitchen will actually look like. This is the stage where you forget a little bit about being practical and focus more on being artistic. Make sure you dedicate a lot of time so that you can pay attention to every detail and end up with an aesthetic kitchen or bathroom that catches the eye.

Plan Materials

At this point you have a visual of what your kitchen or bathroom will look like. Now it is time for you to decide what materials you want and where you want those materials. It is also at this stage that you decide what finishes you want for the materials. This is the last stage of the planning and designing process. After this, your contractor will execute the plan and bring your new kitchen or bathroom idea to life.

It is important to work with a contractor that is patient, knowledgeable, and reasonable when it comes to pricing. This will allow you to make the best of the project and will leave you with your dream kitchen or bathroom.
