Before you remodel your kitchen or bathroom, make a checklist of major and minor problems and keep notes of the features you like and dislike the most.This way, when it comes time to sit down with a qualified designer, they’ll know exactly how to suit your needs, taste and style. Start by thinking about the details in your kitchen and what you’d like to either keep or change in your remodeled room.

My Remodeling Checklist
Is there adequate space?
Make sure you’re satisfied with the
amount of counter space, storage space and floor space. The
position of your refrigerator or shape of your counter may be
taking away from a useful area.
Are you happy with the traffic flow through your kitchen? If
there’s more than one cook in your household, you may want to
consider making more room around the main work space. If you
enjoy entertaining, you may want an open plan kitchen that
allows for more social interaction with adjoining spaces.
Is your kitchen efficient? If your appliances are dated, they may
be costing you more money than you expect. New technological
advances with dishwashers, disposals and refrigerators can save
you a considerable amount of money and may be worth the
investment.
Do you have children? If so, your kitchen may need to be
remodeled. Dated appliances and the setup of your kitchen can be
hazardous for young kids. If you are in the process of extending
your family, you may even want more room for cooking larger
meals, and lower cabinets for easier access to children’s food.
Do you like the location and design of your kitchen? Maybe
you’d like to add a deck on to the side of your house and would
like to incorporate the door into the layout of your kitchen. You
may want to rearrange the position of windows to allow more
or less sunlight.

Once you get these ket features figured out, contact our in-store designers that are experienced and fully trained to help you choose the perfect natural stone, tile, flooring, backsplash, or decor that is perfect for you and your family.
