Before looking at paint swatches, selecting flooring or picking out countertops, consider how your lifestyle influences a kitchen remodel. How can you do that? Keep a list of what works in the space, and also right down details that you wish you could change.   Taking inventory of what your kitchen goes through regularly can let you focus on functionality and then work on the aesthetics so you can be happy with your decisions. You also need to consider all the people who use the kitchen and their individual needs.   Identify all the cooks in your kitchen Some households have a dedicated chef who loves to prepare meals and host gatherings, others are more focused on convenience dining, and many situations are somewhere in between. If the main cook in the household is not the one planning the kitchen remodel, then getting their wish list incorporated into the plans can increase functionality. Their needs may be more about the flow of the space or the storage than the appearance.   Select finishes that match your lifestyle It can be easy to select materials that create a stunning end result, but exploring the durability and maintenance is essential. This can help you select products that match your lifestyle, including how many people will be using them, and looking at the wear and tear areas of your current space is a good place to start. If your notes indicate certain aspects of the room that get the most use, match your selections to that use, while if you are not home a lot or infrequently use the space, your choices can reflect that.   List all the activities that take place in the space Beyond food preparation and storage, other activities including entertaining, homework, crafts and hobbies take place in some kitchens. For other households, pets and their feeding are often part of the equation. While your kitchen remodel should not be based solely on your hobbies or crafts, not considering all the ways a space is used can derail the long term appreciation of the project.   Whether you are thinking small updates or a grand scale kitchen remodel, clearly identifying needs and wants for all the users of the space can let you focus on the getting the most function for the space. Contact the design experts at Hoffman Kitchen & Bath to guide you through the process. Once that foundation is established, you can move on to selecting the materials to create the look you want and enjoy the results now and in the long term.
