Thinking about what you need
This step is pretty basic, you need to think about how you want to use your kitchen, and also find out the layout and how the features fit your household. You could get ideas from pretty much anywhere including guides, photos, showrooms, books, magazines, and even blogs! Think about how many people will be in there at once and how they will move around it. Will you need an addition? Or can you work with the size it is now? Start saving photos to show to the person who will do your remodel. Your collection can then be organized and like a scrapbook so it can be filled with random images.
Research and Plan
The best place to start this project is by figuring out what your budget is going to be. This step is pretty short and sweet but very important. This may be subject to change if you don’t like the type of design later on or you expect one thing and you get something totally different.
