Renovate or Remodel?...That is the Question. (Part 3 of 4 Part Series)
Did you enjoy the photos last week? Many times for homeowners it can feel an impossible task to visualize their familiar kitchen as a new space. This is where the design expertise of a designer like Mark can be invaluable. Through his careful consideration of the client needs and desires and his creative and expert knowledge, he was able to offer a winning design!
A good design is essential to plan out your project. In process photos highlight the many components your designer needs to consider to ensure a project is on task, on budget and on time….
For a remodel project such as this, the space is first taken down to its bare bones and then reconfigured.
The first step in a remodel, is the demo stage. This includes taking out all that needs to go! Effort to reduce mess and dust includes sealing off the work area.
Once the old is gone, work begins on framing, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC. These are elements that are unseen in the finished work but so very important to consider. After these elements are in place attention turns to flooring, wall finishes, cabinetry, lighting installation and other final finishes.
As you can imagine, the inconvenience during this stage of a project can be difficult to endure. As you’ll see next week….it is worth it!
