Planning Your Kitchen Renovation

Kitchen renovations are the most common type of home improvement. If you are looking for a kitchen renovation in Ottawa, there are three key things you will need to consider – your budget, the layout, and appliances.


You may want your improved kitchen to look as modern and as stylish as possible but you’ve got to be realistic with yourself. Because you probably do not have an unlimited budget to improve your kitchen. So when planning your renovation, set a budget that you can afford and work from there. Use the money you have set to determine what improvements you can do.

While significant kitchen improvements are generally expensive, hiring a professional home improvement organization can help you to stay within budget. This is because such organizations have professionals who know how to manage renovations within budgets.

The layout

Once you have set your budget, it is time to consider the kitchen layout. You can save money by simply upgrading the existing layout. This is because you will essentially be using the existing gas, electrical, and water systems. It does not mean your kitchen will stay the same; it just means that some things will remain in place. If you want a new layout, you are probably going to spend more money as you will need to modify several systems and perhaps the architecture of your kitchen.

The best thing to do if you want a new layout is to hire a professional kitchen renovation company to work on your plans. They will make sure the resulting layout is attractive, safe, and functional.


Most kitchens in Canada are 70% appliances. So, when considering renovating your kitchen, you need to decide if you are going to replace some or all your existing kitchen appliances. If you are going to change appliances, you need to understand the consequences of those changes. For instance, if you are getting a new dishwasher, you may need to consider water supply and waste water drainage connections. You also need to consider the costs.
