Designing a new kitchen can be an exciting venture. After all, the kitchen is often seen as the heart of the home, so it’s natural to want your kitchen to look beautiful while also remaining functional.

That being said, if you’ve never tackled a big renovation project like this before, you may feel a bit overwhelmed and unsure of where to start. Luckily, we’re here to help. We’re going to be walking you through a few steps you need to follow when designing a new kitchen so that the process is as seamless as possible. This should help reduce some of your stress.  

Decide how big of a renovation you want to do

The first thing you need to decide is whether you want to renovate the entire kitchen and build a new kitchen from scratch, or whether you simply want to take what you have and give it a bit of a facelift.

As you can imagine, the first option will be a much bigger project, but it will also give you more freedom since you can completely redesign your kitchen’s layout.

The second option is more affordable, but you need to accept that you may have some limitations to what you can do with your existing kitchen setup.

Set up a budget

You also need to know how much you can realistically afford to spend on your kitchen, so you may find it helpful to set up a budget.

This way, you will know if you need to save up a bit more before remodelling your kitchen. You should also get quotes from kitchen installers, as this will help you get a better idea of how much the renovation will set you back financially. Our “get a quote” feature on our website makes this process easy.

Brainstorm design ideas

Next, it can be helpful to gather a few ideas of what you want your new kitchen to look like. We understand that you’re not an expert, so we don’t expect you to draw up plans or do anything as advanced as that. But it will help you as well as the kitchen installer if you have at least an idea of what direction you want to go with for your kitchen.

You can make a list of colours you like or elements you want to add to your kitchen. You can also look on the internet to find a few examples of kitchens you find pleasing. If you need a place to start, have a look at our portfolio.

Start the process

Once you’ve decided on your design and you’ve found the perfect installer for your kitchen, you can get started on the installation process.

Your installer will likely sit down and walk you through the design they have planned so that you can ask them to make any necessary changes before they get started, and this is also when you will be able to choose the details of your kitchen such as the colour of the cupboards, the material for the counters, and more.

Keep in mind that your kitchen may be a bit chaotic and dirty during the installation, so it’s a good idea to give it a deep clean once everything is done.

In conclusion

Designing your own kitchen can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Professional kitchen installers like Cupboard Value West Rand can guide you through every step of the way so that designing and installing your dream kitchen feels like a breeze.

Hopefully, this post gave you some idea of what to expect from the kitchen renovation and installation process.
