Remodeling a kitchen can be a complicated process. There are many variables that come into play including layout, plumbing, appliances and electrical. Central Pluming and Heating is here to answer your many questions.

  • What are some primary things to know before doing a kitchen?

    Some things to know before undergoing a kitchen remodel are your budget, how you want your kitchen to function, and dimensions. Budget wise, kitchens tend to range drastically depending on size and product choice. So going into a remodel with a reasonable budget for the job you want to accomplish is smart. Knowing the general layout and flow you want your new kitchen to have is very important. You want your kitchen space to function well for your family’s needs. Thinking of some must haves is not a bad idea! Dimensions are always a must and play a role in the flow and layout of your space, without them beginning your remodel is impossible. 

  • What is the average cost of a kitchen remodel?

    Of course the cost of a kitchen remodel ranges depending on the size of the remodel, product selection, and labor costs. The range of an average kitchen remodel is anywhere from $8,000 to $60,000. But currently the average people spend is about $25,000. 

  • What do you tackle first in a kitchen remodel?

    Kitchen remodels can be overwhelming, often there are more options then most would assume. Tackling the layout of your kitchen along with must haves is a good spot to start. Once you have established the flow of our new kitchen and where you want the larger kitchen appliances (fridge, oven, sink, stove) to go we recommend picking cabinetry. Cabinetry will take up the majority of the space in your kitchen so taking the time to decide on a style and color are imperative. 

  • What are the final steps in a kitchen remodel?

    Final steps in any kitchen remodel include finishing touches such as hardware for cabinets, faucets, soap dispensers, etc. These are all necessities but can be installed last. They also help to accent any kitchen and come in multiple finishes so you can really make a statement. 

  • Do you put flooring under kitchen cabinets?

    The answer to this question is ultimately dependent on the type of material that your flooring is made of. Most of the time flooring is installed under cabinets. The goal is for the flooring and cabinets to all be the same height and level.
