Are you planning a kitchen renovation? Before you dive into the exciting world of redesigning the heart of your home, it’s essential to be aware of common pitfalls that can disrupt your project. Senior Designer Julia Eissing shares some key mistakes to avoid ensuring a smooth and successful kitchen renovation. 

Overlooking Lifestyle Needs  
Every family uses the kitchen differently, so it’s essential to consider how you live and use the space. Communicate your lifestyle preferences to your designer to create a layout that suits your needs. 

Neglecting Storage Planning  
A well-designed kitchen should have ample storage for all your essentials. Make a list of must-have storage elements and consider the types of items you’ll be storing to determine the size and placement of each storage area. 

Focusing Solely on Aesthetics  
While the style of your kitchen is important, don’t forget about functionality. Innovative internal mechanisms can make your life easier, so prioritise functionality alongside aesthetics.

Following Trends Blindly  
Trends come and go, but your kitchen should last for years to come. Avoid designing your kitchen solely based on current trends, as they can quickly become outdated. Instead, incorporate trends into your styling choices that can be easily updated. 

Not Consulting a Specialised Kitchen Studio  
Working with a specialised kitchen studio ensures access to high-quality materials and expertise in design and execution. Avoid the mistake of hiring a general carpenter or contractor who may lack the necessary experience in kitchen design. 

Lack of Proper Planning  
Proper planning is key to a successful kitchen renovation. Be sure to plan your timeline carefully, taking into account lead times for manufacturing and delivery of materials. Factor in both the planning and execution stages to avoid delays and ensure a seamless renovation process.
