Step 1: Think About What You Want
The first step is all about how you use your kitchen. What do you like to do in there aside from cooking? Does your family use it as a hangout? Find the layout and features that your household’s needs and style. There are tons of resources out there to help you. Think about kitchen additions, like islands. What about your kitchen footprint, is it easy to move around in? If you like to do a certain type of cooking, for example, you like canning your own jams, is your kitchen layout set up for it? Start saving photos from magazine clippings and online sources that feature your style.
Step 2: Research and Plan
While estimating what renovation costs will be is a profession on it’s own, it’ll be helpful to think about your estimated budget. Perhaps you have been saving for an entire year, what are those savings, and are you willing to pull in funds from other sources, thinking about budgeting before the project will ease your worries.

Step 3: Design and Development
Once you’ve decided on what your dream kitchen looks like, you can proceed to implementing your design choices. Sketches, space planning, floor plans, cabinet sizes, all these technical factors come in once the design aspects are covered.
