Five Key Steps for Planning Your Kitchen Renovation Project

One of the most important rooms in any home is the kitchen. It’s where you nourish yourself, where families gather during busy days, and most people start the day. The kitchen can make or break a real estate sale or change your entire perspective on your home. If you’re looking to change things up to increase your property value or create your dream home, beginning with your kitchen is a good place to start. Follow these five key steps for planning your kitchen renovation project.

Start from the Ground Up

If you’re going for a full kitchen renovation, start from the ground up. This includes deciding on the layout, choosing tile or wood flooring, color scheme, and other base level decisions. It’s important to make sure you actually have the room to make all the other changes you want to happen. This is also the point to start figuring out your budget and the time frame you want for your project.


Think carefully about what kind of countertops you want and do your research. While some materials may be beautiful, they may not be best in the long wrong. Certain countertops may crack or chip easily when introduced to heat or with everyday wear and tear. Choose a hard, non-porous countertop that will last, especially if you cook at home often. Delorie Countertops & Doors has a large variety of high-quality countertop options for you to choose from. As a premiere countertop fabricator in Pompano, they will work with you to turn your design into reality.

Sink and Appliances

Along with countertops, the style of sink you want is important to establish early. Choose something functional for your needs. Do you need a double basin sink? One with a garbage disposal? Consider an eco-friendly sink option! Undermount sinks are not only more attractive because they don’t interrupt the countertop as much as traditional sinks, but they help contain messes to the sink area, reducing the spread of bacteria.

When it comes to your stove, refrigerator, or dishwasher, do you want stand-alone appliances or something incorporated into your total design? Over-the-range microwaves have been around for a while, but did you know you can get a fridge that seamlessly blends into your countertop and cabinets? Flat top stoves and ovens also keep your kitchen design looking neat and sleek.


How much storage do you need for your kitchen? Design your cabinets based on those needs; be sure to consider storage space for smaller appliances, pots and pans, cutlery, and tableware. Kitchen cabinets in Pompano from Delorie Countertops & Doors can be custom fitted for your space and your needs. We offer soft close cabinets with hidden hinges to protect your cabinets’ longevity. No matter what your color scheme or intended aesthetic, we can find the cabinets of your dreams.


The paint you choose is the cherry on top of your kitchen renovation! Choosing a color is influenced by your countertops, cabinets, and appliances, as well as the general mood you want for your kitchen. Whether you choose a muted, neutral color or something bright and bold, choose a durable paint that can stand up to the test of time. Find a paint that’s stain-resistant and easy to clean in case of messes.
