Kitchen remodeling, step-by-step…That’s what you came here to see. The truth is that no two kitchens are exactly alike. Each one will have its own design challenges that may alter the steps in kitchen remodeling. Nevertheless, there is a general flow to every project that will give you an idea of what’s to come. Here is a look at the kitchen remodeling steps that goes into most projects here at O’Hanlon Kitchens.
Step 1 – An In-Home Consultation with a Kitchen Designer
The journey to your dream kitchen starts with an in-home consultation. One of our designers will come out to your home to get a feel for your kitchen layout, personal style, and overall goals. The designer will take pictures and measurements of the space and discuss your options with you. This allows us to design a kitchen that fits your budget, time constraints, short- and long-term goals, personal aesthetic, and more.
Step 2 – A Custom Design Plan for Your Dream Kitchen
After the consultation, your designer will work closely with the project manager to create a custom kitchen plan for you. We use CAD software to create a 3D layout of the kitchen. You’ll be able to truly visualize what the new space will look like, whether you’re changing your kitchen layout or just upgrading the finishes. We’ll answer any questions you have along the way and make the necessary adjustments to the design.
Step 3 – Demolition
Once the design is finalized, it’s time for demolition. This is everyone’s favorite step in kitchen remodeling because it creates a fresh start for the new design. Think of this as a cleanse, eliminating the unwanted elements in your kitchen.
The type of demolition we do will depend on your kitchen design. If you are getting a direct replacement for your cabinets and countertops, we will remove the old fixtures and clean the remaining surfaces. If you are getting a full kitchen remodel, we will remove everything and start from scratch. This will all be laid out in your design plan.
Step 4 – Construction: Flooring, Cabinets, Countertops, and Backsplash
With the demolition complete, we can begin building your new kitchen. The order of construction will once again depend on your design plan. For direct replacement, we will install the new cabinets, then lay the countertops. For full kitchen remodeling, we will lay new flooring, install the cabinets, install the countertops, and finish with the backsplash.
Step 5 – Cleanup and Finishing Touches
The finishing touches in a kitchen include trim, molding, hardware, lighting, caulking, and all the other tasks that tie the room together. We’ll hook your appliances up and make sure everything is in proper working order. At the very end, we will clean your kitchen thoroughly so it is ready for you to use. Then you can enjoy your stunning new kitchen for years to come!
