Kitchen and Bath Remodeling Tips are a compendium of suggestions and essentials that can turn into "gotcha"s if you're not "on top" of your project. Remodeling an Phoenix AZ home - or any high end home - can go from low budget to high budget with just a few wrong turns. When you retain Ultimate Kitchens to remodel your kitchen, wardrobe, bath, home office - or any area that good cabinetry would improve - we bring decades of experience on how to avoid common home improvement pitfalls.

  • Plan, plan, plan
  • Have a contract
  • Learn about the kitchen "work triangle" and plan yours
  • You may be one bathroom short for 1 to 3 months. Have a "use" schedule in place.
  • Don't forget permits
  • Save money - handle the old kitchen and/or bath demolition yourself if you have the time and energy
  • If you handle the demolition, order the trash bin at least a week ahead of time
  • If this will be a messy demolition (Is there any other kind?) and remodel, have plastic sheets ready for the rest of the house
  • Rent an outdoor toilet unless you want workers using your bathroom
  • Don't forget to consider window treatments as part of your remodel
  • Check cabinets, appliances and sinks for dings and damage when they arrive
  • Use decorative switch and outlet faceplates
  • Set up a temporary working kitchen (microwave, indoor electric grill or hot plate, mini fridge or ice chest)
  • Have the kitchen and/or bath emptied ahead of time
  • Clean out the garage so you'll have space to store the kitchen and bath items
  • Sell or give your old appliances away
  • Consider updating your electrical service
  • Since the walls may be open, consider any piping repairs or improvements now
  • Reroute ductwork as needed
  • If you'll be putting in new drywall in some areas, primer the new drywall AND all other walls with the same primer for uniformity before you repaint the entire kitchen and/or bath
  • Make sure your appliances and cabinets are available at the same time since one usually abuts and must be matched to the other
  • Electricity and gas must be turned off before installing new appliances
  • If utilities are going to be off, you may have to make alternate plans for laundry, cooking and bathroom use
