Euro Homes’ 6 Step Kitchen Remodeling Process
We follow a streamlined process focused on smooth, efficient project execution:
Design Development and Planning
This phase involves meetings at your home where we learn your style preferences, must-have features, storage needs, and budget. We’ll work together on space planning concepts, preliminary layouts, 3D renderings, elevations and material selections until the design is finalized.
Permits and Pre-Construction
With approved plans in place, we acquire all necessary permits and complete selective demolition, removals, and space prep protection steps. All subcontractors are scheduled during this coordination phase.
Kitchen Installation and Structural Modifications
The construction and installation work begins by safely executing any needed structural changes like moving walls, adjusting windows/doors along with system upgrades like electrical, plumbing, ventilation and HVAC improvements.
Cabinetry, Counters and Backsplashes
Your kitchen truly takes shape in this phase as we install all cabinetry, hardware, countertops, tile backsplashes, trimwork and solid surface or natural stone counters per the approved design.
We complete the final details like adding lighting fixtures, sinks, high-end appliances, accessories, and any remaining paint work. Meticulous caulking, sealing and cleanup prep complete the process.
Completion and Follow-Up
We conduct a homeowner walkthrough orientation to introduce you to the stunning new kitchen and answer all questions. All manuals, warranties and maintenance tips are provided as well. Constant communication and oversight ensure we execute your kitchen remodel seamlessly from demolition to completion.
Designing Your Ideal Kitchen with Euro Homes
Our team of experienced interior designers will collaborate with you each step of the way to bring your dream kitchen to life:
Assess how you currently use your kitchen and what works or doesn’t work.
Observe existing patterns related to cooking, cleaning, organizing, entertaining, traffic flow and storage. Prioritize what you hope to change vs what you want to preserve. This self-assessment establishes clear goals.
Define your style, must-haves and wish list.
What general aesthetic do you envision – modern, traditional, transitional, contemporary or farmhouse? List any must-have features like a spacious island, double ovens, specialty lighting or luxury appliances. Compile an inspiration wish list of dream finishes and details.
Collect inspiring kitchen photos from sites like Houzz and Pinterest.
Curate images of designs you love showcasing desired layouts, finishes, colors, materials and styles. This visual inspiration communicates your preferences and priorities.
Keep functionality front of mind throughout the design process.
Ensure the new layout, work zones, storage solutions and appliances are optimized for how your family actually lives and cooks. Form follows function.
Select finishes that balance aesthetics, durability and ease of maintenance.
While you want a beautiful kitchen, it must also stand up to heavy use. Cabinetry, countertops, flooring and backsplashes should be easy to clean and moisture-resistant.
Incorporate abundant task lighting plus accent and ambient lighting.
Proper illumination makes kitchen tasks safer and easier while also providing aesthetic appeal. Use different lighting types and layers.
Be open to ideas that improve flow, visibility and ergonomics.
Removing upper cabinets, opening walls, adding a window over the sink – don’t be afraid to think outside the box! By thoroughly understanding your needs, style and patterns, we’ll design a timeless, highly functional kitchen tailored to your lifestyle.
Smart Planning Guidelines for Kitchen and Bathroom Remodels
Meticulous planning and design from the start help ensure a smooth, efficient kitchen remodeling project. Our top tips include:
- – Build extra contingencies into your budget to accommodate unforeseen issues behind walls.
- – Make all finish selections early to prevent procurement delays down the road.
- – Thoroughly declutter and organize kitchen contents before work begins.
- – Refine proposed layouts to maximize visibility, accessibility, and ease of movement based on traffic flow.
- – Take lighting design seriously for aesthetics, task visibility and safety.
- – Avoid moving plumbing and electrical when possible to prevent added costs.
- – Schedule remodeling during temperate weather if possible to avoid HVAC complications.
- – Stagger stages and work zone by zone to keep portions of the kitchen functional.
Careful collaboration and planning allows us to optimize form and function to match your family’s cooking and lifestyle priorities.
