How to Find Inspiration For Your Next Remodel
Sometimes you have a clear vision of what you want for your kitchen or bathroom remodel, and sometimes you just know you want something different. It might be that your kitchen needs to be upgraded, or that the rooms are too bland. Knowing you need a change is one thing. Knowing what kind of change you want, however, is an important next step as you’ll need to communicate that to your remodeling company. Fortunately, we have a few tips to help you flesh out your vision for your remodeling project.
Determine What You Need
The first thing to do is to consider what you lack in your current kitchen or bathroom. Maybe they’re outdated, so you need something more modern and functional. Maybe they’re too small, and you’re looking for more space to move around. Maybe the design is too garish or too bland. Knowing the problem can help you get a clearer sense of what you’re looking for. You might not want to swing to the complete opposite end, but you’ll know what you need more of and what you need less of.
Create a Budget
It’s also important to know what kind of remodeling project you can afford. A budget might not be an exciting part of finding inspiration for your kitchen or bathroom remodel, but it’s still important, and it will impact things like countertops or the extent of the remodeling. Maybe you don’t have the money for marble countertops, but you might find a high-quality laminate with a look like marble. You might not be able to tear down walls and expand the room, but you incorporate creative storage solutions to make the room seem larger.
Think Of Other Rooms You Like
Think about your best friend’s kitchen, your mother-in-law’s bathroom, or other kitchens and bathrooms you’ve visited recently. What do you like in those rooms? Are there any features you’ve seen and wished that you had in your own home? Now is the time to start making a note of those features so you can bring them up to your remodeling professionals in creating the kitchen or bathroom of your dreams.
Take to the Internet
There’s no wider well of information than the internet. Search Pinterest for kitchen or bathroom ideas. Search Google, both images and recent articles, for remodeling inspiration. You can even take inspiration from kitchens and bathrooms in other countries if you’re looking for something truly different. Make sure to share the images that strike you with your remodeling professionals, as well, so that they can share in that vision.Communication with your remodeler is key when you’re trying to develop a vision for your kitchen and bathroom. These preliminary steps, however, will go a good way towards helping you find inspiration. When you’re ready for the rest, contact MBC Remodeling to set up a free consultation.
