4 Basic Steps To Proceed Kitchen Improvement Plan

Dec 25, 2007
In the past, many people seem not to pay attention to have kitchen much than at present time. Kitchen was only one little corner of the big house where only small diet meals were cooked and we can see that people had main lunch or dinner outside. But today, kitchen room has become one of the most important section of the room, just like living room, bedroom or bathroom. Kitchen is not just the room where we cook food, but it is also the place where all family have dining and join activities together. Therefore when you are going to have kitchen in the house or you want to renovate or re-modeling your kitchen, it is really important to you to know some important basic steps which could help you ensure that you have complete checklist and be able to save cost as much as you can.

Basic steps

1. Define your needs

Yes, it is definitely necessary that you can not go further without have very clear objective and identify what to do. That is you have to decide whether you want to renovate, remodel or just want to make complete re-construction. This is very important step because if you fail to do this, you can not plan for definite budget that you will need and everything will be out of control.

2. Budget planning

Budget planning is also one of the most important steps, but it is usually be ignored. This is because many people think that improving kitchen may not cost a lot. According to the fact that it is really depends. If you are planning to make a major change like renovate or re-construction, you will have to plan your budget very carefully.

3. Looking for tender or supplier to do the work for you.

This may be the hardest part of the plan. Somebody may think that they just can find supplier or tender by just open telephone directory or find supplier on the internet, then tell them about your budget available, if supplier ok on your budget and then finally deal. In fact, it is not easy like that. You will have to ask for at least three price quotation from three different suppliers to ensure that you can get the one that best for value of money. Also, if possible, you will have to ask for their port folio the compare the quality of works that they have done in the past. It is quite normal that good quality supplier may expensive but I would recommend that you have to consider the one that you can afford not just choose for the most expensive one. It is ok if you have more money but sometimes you do not have to.

4. Controlling the work

It is really important after you have chosen the ideal supplier, you have to decide whether you will control the work by yourself or let the supplier provide the staff to control the work. This is because if you decide to control by yourself you can save quite a lot of money because generally you have to pay extra for this staff.
