Kitchens are the heart of any home, and like hearts, they need a lot of attention and upkeep to keep on breathing life into a home. When it comes time to start your kitchen remodel, being educated and informed about your options is an important part of the process. At Eakman Construction, we take the time to get to know your needs and how you use and interact with the heart of your home.

We’ve put together a guide to help you make informed choices about your next kitchen remodel project.

What to Consider During Your Kitchen Remodel

When considering a kitchen remodel, remember that you will experience a great deal of disruption from start to finish. Remodels often involve major construction and let’s face it, a lot of mess. It takes time to take a kitchen apart and put it back together, but when you work with professionals like Eakman Construction, your kitchen remodel will go smooth and you’ll be enjoying your new kitchen in no time. Think about the areas of your kitchen that are used the most. Do you have a bar counter that doesn’t get used? Do you have a door that nobody enters through? Is there a cupboard in a strange place that you wish was somewhere else? What kind of floor do you want to stand on while making meals? It all matters. No detail is too small when thinking about one of the most important rooms in your home.

Where to Spend Your Money Doing a Kitchen Remodel in Seattle, WA

One of the most common questions we get asked about kitchen renovations has to do with the budget: how much does it cost to do a kitchen remodel? Unfortunately, the answer is as unique as the person asking the question. A better question to ask of yourself is “how much do you want to spend?” Sometimes, the reality of what a kitchen remodel will cost can leave a homeowner feeling deflated. It’s better to start with a realistic picture of what you need versus what you want when it comes time to kickstart your kitchen remodel. Our expert designers and engineers can help you make decisions about how to spend your money so that you get the kitchen you’ve always wanted.

How Custom Home Builders Improve Your Kitchen Projects

There are many reasons to contract a custom home builder to take on your kitchen remodel. For starters, home builders understand how each room lends to the next. They see many examples of poor construction or design when they enter a home to take on a new remodel. Experienced professionals can gently guide you to make decisions that are right for your needs now and in the future without pressuring you to adhere to trends or what’s hot right now. It’s your home, after all. At Eakman Construction, we are very upfront with our customers about how much disruption will ensue once a kitchen remodel is started and we do everything we can to minimize that disruption with careful planning and even more careful execution. But issues do arise from time to time and that’s why it’s important to be working with an experienced home builder. Uncovering walls, moving cabinetry, or adding an addition can open up a can of worms related to a home’s structure or build.
