When you decide to renovate your kitchen, it can be hard to know where to begin. Here we are going to give you some of our top tips and let you know how our storage units in Brighton will help.

Create a plan

Okay, first things first, sit down and create a plan. Ask yourself what type of people you will need to hire – plumbers, electricians etc. 

Draw out a timeline alongside your to-do list which will allow you to see how long your renovation will take. Remember to be generous with the timings as renovations have a habit of going over (this is true for your budget too!). 

Decide on your budget

It is really important to have a set budget in mind before you begin talking with professionals and searching out your ideal kitchen.

Knowing your budget will allow people to advise you about what can be done on your budget and, more importantly, what can’t. 

It’s always a good idea to factor in a % on top of your budget for any additional items that you may not have thought of in the beginning, things can crop up that aren’t in the initial plan.

Decide on layout

The layout of your kitchen is very important, particularly if you aren’t working with a great deal of space. Think about how you work within your current kitchen and if there are any changes that would make your kitchen a more convenient space. 

Make notes of any changes you would like to make and speak to your builders about how you would like the layout to be. All that you want may not be possible, but they will be able to advise on alternatives. 

Choose the style

This is the fun part! Go and have a look around kitchen showrooms, check out Instagram or Pinterest or grab some magazines for inspiration for your new cabinets, countertops, flooring and kitchen fixtures such as your sink, taps, shelving etc. 

Remember to keep your budget in mind whilst looking. It is very easy to get swept up in all the beautiful cabinets and fittings but it will only lead to disappointment if you can’t afford it all in the end.   

Find the right team for each job

It is imperative that you hire professionals to do certain jobs.

If you want a full layout change or you want your electrical sockets moving, you will need to speak with builders and electricians. Plumbers will need to be brought in to fit new sinks.

This will ensure safe and proper completion of your kitchen renovation. 

And consider the jobs you could do yourself 

Of course, there will be some jobs that you can do for yourself. Painting walls is a fairly straightforward job and it will help you to save some money from your budget which could go towards the slightly fancier taps or flooring! 

Where you can, doing jobs for yourself is a great way to save money and to feel like a part of the renovation project.
