Establish Your Timeline

People often underestimate the time it can take to renovate a kitchen. From the design phase to ordering custom cabinetry to permitting, a full reno can potentially last 3 to 6 months. Setting a timeline is imperative for managing expectations, to get a sense of where the time goes, check out our
timeframe guide.

Audit Your Kitchen

This is the time to question everything and prioritize the things that are essential: what are you lacking in your current kitchen; what bothers you – what do you wish you always had? Research your appliances – gas range; larger fridge for your big family; multiple ovens? Do you want more natural light? Or maybe stone countertops? For sheer joy of living or to capitalise on the resale of your home, give hard thought to what really makes a difference for how you’ll live, not just how it looks.

Collect Inspiration

You may only renovate once in your life – so make it great! Be it HouzzPinterest, magazines or wherever else you pull inspiration from, gather the ideas that genuinely speak to you. After all, understanding your tastes and style will help us really nail the design of your project.

Use our Kitchen Visualizer to dive even deeper or check out our section on for up to date inspiration from our designers.

If you’re having trouble, think of it this way, knowing what you don’t want is equally important and helps along the path of finding what you do want, so consider starting from there.
