If your real estate agent shows you a house that you love fall in love with a house that has everything your family needs, but you aren't happy at all with the kitchen, then you can consider buying the house and redoing the kitchen. If there isn't much you like about it, then the advice in this article can help you to give yourself the perfect kitchen to go with your perfect house:
Remove everything from the kitchen
It's actually much easier for you to start from scratch when you are putting together your dream kitchen than it's going to be to work around things. This means removing the island, the cupboards, and cabinets from the walls, the sink, all of the other appliances and the flooring. When you are done, you want there to be just walls and bare floors, as well as plumbing pipes coming in.
You may be able to recycle or sell many of the things that you remove which can help you to recoup some of the costs of redoing your kitchen. A recycling center may give you money for anything metal, as well as some of the appliances. You can more than likely sell the cupboards, islands and other materials by running local ads.
Paint the kitchen in a good color scheme
Now is your chance to create the kitchen you are going to love spending meal prep time in. By this time you should have a plan drawn out and it should include your colors. By painting the kitchen before you do anything else you will be able to avoid the need to tape a lot of stuff off or even cover the floors.
Install cabinetry, cupboards, islands, sink, etc.
Once you have the place painted, it's time to put in all of the cabinetry of your choosing. This is actually quite simple to do as long as you have measured correctly. You can watch online videos that will help or some hardware stores give weekend classes. Have the hole for the sink you have chosen pre-cut into the countertop you have selected, so you can drop it right in and caulk it with no hassle.
You also want to make sure you purchase the right faucet that fits the holes in the sink you bought. Install it according to the instructions that come with the faucet. Hook up the plumbing and make sure you call a plumber for this part if you find you are in over your head. If you want an island, install it now as well.
Put in the flooring you have chosen
Once you have everything else in place, you will be ready to put in the flooring. The reason for doing this last is so it isn't damaged during the other work and so you don't waste money paying for flooring that you aren't going to need to lay anyway. If you are unsure of your ability to lay the flooring so it looks professional, then you should consider hiring a professional.
Once you are done, you will have the perfect kitchen and your dream home will now be complete. Once you give yourself the kitchen you have always envisioned, you will love your home even more than when you first knew it was the right one for you.Share
