If you find yourself constantly looking at pictures of beautiful kitchens and dreaming of remodeling your own, but don’t know where to start – we’re sharing how to plan a kitchen remodel.

At Falcon Residential, we truly enjoy helping homeowners realize the true potential of their home. This includes discussing what details are most important to you, as well as the budget and timeline for a kitchen remodel. We will not make promises we cannot keep or embark on projects that aren’t within your budget.

Priorities

We refrain from declaring a fixed price or a definite timeline for remodels, as every project is different. However, we are able to determine the estimated price and timeline after an initial visit. It is during this time that we will discuss the current state of your kitchen and what is possible with your layout. If you are considering modifying the layout of your kitchen, this needs to be decided on before planning begins. Installing new flooring and then choosing to relocate the appliances can be a costly and time-consuming mistake. Some decisions will be made as we go along, but the layout of the kitchen is not one of them. Once we know your priorities, whether it is new flooring or cabinets, we can move forward with the planning. After signing the contract, Falcon Residential provides a two-hour consultation with a designer.

Budget

We encourage our clients to do their research when it comes to their budget. As a locally owned business, we can assure you that there will be no up-charging or last minute added expenses happening. We will communicate with you throughout the entire renovation process and will consult you if any issues arise. It is advised to categorize some of the items further on the priority list “as budget allows” so that we are operating with insurance, rather than guaranteeing that the unexpected won’t occur. After all, we’ve all seen Fixer Uppers!

Whether you’ve designed your dream kitchen from scratch or are planning for a simple update, kitchen renovations can be quite the financial investment. This is why we work with Green Sky Credit to provide you the option of a payment plan.

Timeline

Outlining a reasonable timeline is especially important with a kitchen remodel, because unlike bathroom renovations… most homes don’t have two kitchens! In order to respect your time, we do not start a remodel project until all materials are on site. This helps us avoid the “we are waiting on X to arrive before we can start on Y” from happening, which minimizes delays. As proven by these Houzz reviews, we make a point to do what is best for you and your home. We will not cut corners in order to make up time. We will be upfront with you about the process and advise you on the best way to move forward. 

If a kitchen remodel is in your future, we recommend having a list of priorities, a proposed budget and a realistic amount of time you can forgo a kitchen before meeting with a professional. We will work with you to direct the budget to ensure your priorities are met while sticking to the timeline so you can enjoy your brand new custom built kitchen!
