The word “remodeling” sounds overwhelming sometimes. However, not all types of remodeling consist of tearing down walls and pulling apart your kitchen cabinets. Kitchen remodeling can be as minor as replacing counter tops or cabinets. For your convenience, we have broken down the extent of kitchen renovation into three different levels – Facelift, Pull and Replace, and Full-Scale Renovation.

Facelift Remodeling

Facelift remodeling consists of making minor cosmetic changes, such as installing new lighting, replacing countertops or cabinets, putting down new floors and such. Sometimes, small updates may be all you need to freshen up your kitchen space. Facelift remodeling allows you to keep your budget low while achieving the new look that you desire. Those who are also looking into remodeling that can be done in a short period of time with relatively less disruption may find facelift remodeling preferable.

Pull and Replace Remodeling

A pull and replace remodeling consists of replacing and updating all kitchen furniture and appliances. It is suitable for those are looking into updating their old, poor functioning kitchen. This particular type of remodeling does not require any kind of reconfiguring of the space, such as wall removal. And the original floor plan will be kept. By choosing to have pull and replace remodel done, you will not only achieve a brand new look but you will also have a high-functioning, newly updated kitchen.

Full-Scale Remodeling

Full-Scale remodeling consists of developing a design plan that lays out a new configuration of space, as well as updating all kitchen furniture and appliances. Walls may be removed to create additional space. Depending on your need and circumstances, a bump out or an addition may be necessary. Clients who are looking into floorplan expansion may find this kind of remodeling suitable. When planning and designing for full-scale remodeling, the entire first floor of your home is taken into consideration.
