Kitchen Remodeling Ideas and Tips: Before You Call a Professional

[Kitchen Design & Remodeling Tips: Before You Call a Professional] Hi, I'm Nadia Geller, interior designer for Homestyler [Nadia Geller, Interior Designer] I'm here on location at the Bellato showroom in New York City with some tips about what to do before you call a professional to help you with your kitchen remodel

There are different types of professionals to choose from based on the needs you'll have Kitchen designers, contractors, electricians, plumbers and installers So what and who do you need? A big part of that answer will depend on how much you're comfortable doing on your own and how much help you can afford Most important, do your homework Know your likes and dislikes and define your priorities

For example, if a restaurant grade appliance is really important to you, you may need to spend less somewhere else One way to save is to do the initial budget planning yourself [wwwhomestylercom] I've recreated this kitchen using Homestyler which is a free online program that lets you design your kitchen in 2D and 3D

Let me show you how you can identify some of the key decisions you'll want to consider before contacting a professional You can virtually build your kitchen before buying a thing Try popping in different appliances, countertops, you name it The possiblities are endless You can try different layouts

Even explore different colors and finishes Save all your designs online, then share them with potential design professionals and contractors, so you can get more than one bid Or print out your designs and take them with you if you meet in person Choose your contractor wisely Ask your friends for referrals

Do call references, and always ask to see their license A few final notes, consider time as well as budget Things tend to take a lot longer than we allow If you need permits, that will add to your schedule And very important, check with your homeowner's association to find out if there are any rules about construction

You need to know these before you start your remodel plans Some of them can be pretty strict [Before You Call A Professional] [Define your priorities] [Find licensed contractors with good references] [Learn about permits] [wwwhomestylercom] Good luck building your new kitchen
