Planning Mistakes to Avoid In Your Kitchen Remodel

When it comes to kitchen remodeling, poor planning can often lead to disastrous results. It is thus, very important to have a definitive plan of action in place before starting such an extensive project. Here are some kitchen remodel planning mistakes to avoid:

Poor Lighting

Poor lighting in kitchens is common and it often occurs due to poor planning and design. Consider your lighting options at the time of planning carefully and choose designs to complement that lighting. It's not just about installing beautiful light fixtures but also about getting enough light in the work area.


Flooring is perhaps one of the most important elements of the kitchen design, which is often ignored. There are many options when it comes to flooring and the mistake most homeowners make is opting for the cheapest one. When choosing flooring, look for durability and practicality.


The worst mistake you can make is choosing cheap cabinets that don’t complement the final look for the kitchen. Cabinets elevate the look of your kitchen and if you don't choose them right, it can bring down the value of a kitchen. You need to make sure your cabinets will have enough space as well as looking aesthetically pleasing to the eyes.

Consider Practicality More Than Design

Most homeowners make the mistake of choosing kitchen equipment, utensils, and cabinetry based entirely on design instead of practicality. While everything installed in your kitchen should elevate its looks, it should not be so impractical that it causes problem when you are actually working in the kitchen. While you should know what you want, you should also discuss your options with the homebuilder, as often, they have a better idea of the utilitarian value of various materials and designs.
