Remodeling Your Kitchen
You are tired of your dated kitchen and are ready for a change. You’ve secured your financing, you’ve picked out what you want, you’ve hired a contractor, and are ready for construction. You Where do you start and in what order to you accomplish each task? From paint to cabinets to floorguard products, here a list to begin your remodel.
Tear It Down
Before you can start construction, you need to tear down what you had before. You will want to turn off the electricity to the appliances and light fixtures before you remove them. You will need to ask for assistance to hold the cabinets as you unscrew them or they might fall as you take them down. Make sure to be careful to salvage anything you want to keep or sell. Once you have removed what you want to keep, use a sledgehammer to demolish everything else while keeping the studs intact.
Call In the Experts
Before you start rebuilding your kitchen, you might want to call in a plumber and an electrician to make sure everything beneath the drywall is alright. The last thing you want to happen is to have your new kitchen assembled then have a pipe burst and ruin it all. An electrician can make sure your wiring is sound and do whatever work might be necessary if you want recessed lighting or if you need higher amp outlets for your new appliances.
Once everything is ready within the walls, you will want to hang the new drywall then mud it. Before you hang anything or install any appliances, you will want to paint the walls and ceiling. Applying the color first will make it look even and prevent you from getting any paint on your new cabinets and appliances. Make sure any holes in the walls are filled and sanded smooth before you apply any coats for a consistent look.
Laying It Down
Once your walls are up you will want to tackle the flooring and baseboards. You will want to choose a floor that looks great and is easy to clean. Once the floor is in place, you can nail in the baseboards to give your flooring a complete look. When the floor is complete, you can bring in your new cabinets then cap them with the counters you have picked out. Add the finishing touches and your new appliance for your new, modern kitchen.
