Without thoughtful planning and preparation all the tips in the world will not help much with your kitchen renovations in Tribeca. Planning and advanced preparation are the keys to a successful undertaking. Once you have determined your kitchen remodeling budget look at all possible options that fir the budget; don’t rule out anything at this stage. Get yourself and your family prepared in advance for the disruption and the fact that alternative plans for cooking and eating will have to be made. Figure out a project time line, if you can reasonably forecast when certain things will be done it can help to minimize the inconvenience. The actual finished kitchen is “to each his own” but an attractive update will often add value to the home while an overly-trendy look can detract from the home and its value.
Tastefully done kitchen renovations in Tribeca will still be stylish many years from now. It is always a good idea to stay close to the overall look of the home, otherwise the renovated kitchen will look out of place and take away from its marketability should you think of selling in the future. If your basic home theme and design is traditional then keep it that way, going overboard one way or the other works against the homeowner in the long run, plus, it may turn out to be a disaster.
The primary consideration when renovating any kitchen is the size. Today, many well designed kitchens include a center island, if the kitchen in your home is too small to accept this and the space would be far too cramped to be workable then either a different concept has to e created or the kitchen has to be made bigger. Knocking out an exterior wall can be a huge expense, even making an adjoining room smaller by relocating an inside wall is not cheap but is an attractive solution.
When it comes to the color scheme, stay with neutral colors. There is absolutely nothing wrong with working favorite colors into the new kitchen but if they are overly “bright” then the color should be reserved for accessories, not the counter top or the backsplash. Paint and accessories are cheap to change, not so if you have to replace expensive tiling that is intended to be long lasting.
