When you’ve finally decided to overhaul your old kitchen for something brand-new and exciting, the first step you should take is hiring a professional kitchen designer. No matter how many Pinterest boards you’ve created and home décor magazines you subscribe to, a kitchen designer brings a special brand of knowledge and know-how.
If you’re just refacing cabinets, repainting and investing in a new appliance or two, you can probably do the job yourself. If, however, you’re planning on a major remodel, the benefits of a professional kitchen designer can’t be overstated.
Here’s why you need this pro on your side:
- Get more value from your remodeling project: A kitchen remodel is more than just a matter of picking out some colors and new appliances. When you overhaul the entire room, you’ll need to consider how well each element works together. Will you need additional plumbing and electrical help? Does your layout make sense for how you cook and otherwise use the space in your kitchen? What are the smartest ways to maximize storage, natural light and counter space? When you hire a professional kitchen designer, you’re more likely to get the best value in terms of function, style, aesthetics and the components themselves.
- Speed up the design and build process: Unless you’re a general contractor yourself, you’re probably not up to speed on how long each component requires. People who handle their own kitchen remodeling tend to take at least twice as long. They have to find and coordinate every single contractor and vendor needed, in addition to designing, shopping and explaining their vision to everyone they work with. In contrast, a professional kitchen designer knows exactly how the construction process works, how to communicate with all of the subcontractors and vendors and how to handle any unexpected hiccups.
- Find the best products and vendors for your budget: Since kitchen designers work with vendors and contractors every day, they’re naturally better equipped to find the best products and vendors that fit into your budget. If you’re on a limited budget, it’s wise to employ a professional designer. Hobbyists just don’t have the same knowledge base from which to draw.
- Take the pressure off: Having your home remodeled is stressful enough as it is. Don’t add even more responsibility on top of the dust and noise. You’ll already be unable to use your kitchen until the remodel is completed, which can be difficult for families of any size. Your professional kitchen designer will handle the bulk of the design, organization and coordination, so all you have to do is sit back and relax—at least, in between the hammering and drilling sounds.
Working with a professional kitchen designer has plenty of benefits, and no downside, so don’t skimp on this important part of your kitchen remodel. If you want a gorgeous kitchen that meets all of your needs, they can help you achieve your goals.
