If you are faced with the task of updating the repair in the kitchen, then you can be envied, because very soon during the evening gatherings you will enjoy a completely new kitchen design. However, first you have to overcome the repair process itself, which is by no means easy. If you decide to update the kitchen, then you are probably wondering – where, in fact, to start? In this article, we would like to help you by providing some recommendations in this regard.
First of all, clean the existing room from old furniture, plumbing and decoration. Take off the wallpaper, knock down the tiles, raise the old floor. Clear the walls. If necessary, screed the floor and plaster the walls. At the end, be sure to prime the entire surface of the walls in 2-3 layers. Do the same with the ceiling – remove the old coating, plaster its surface and prime.
Before proceeding with the rest of the steps, draw a blueprint for your future kitchen. This drawing should include comprehensive data regarding the interior of the room: finishing materials, furniture, plumbing, wiring, lighting, etc.d.
If it’s difficult for you to design a future design yourself, then use the Internet – hundreds of design options for any premises are currently available on the network. Look for photos of kitchens with similar layouts and take the best of them into your project.
At this stage, you have to decide on the type of finishing materials that you will use in the repair. Here it is worth bearing in mind the fact that the kitchen is a realm of humidity, high temperature changes due to cooking, as well as splashes of grease and other food. Because of this, the environment in which finishing materials will exist is extremely aggressive. We advise you to choose only those coatings that are resistant to water: ceramic or tile, waterproof wallpaper, PVC panels.
Separately think about the flooring – it faces a serious task in view of very intensive use. In addition, in the kitchen, you can accidentally drop heavy and even sharp objects.
When your project is ready, it’s time to draw up an estimate. Try to foresee all aspects of future repairs so that you can purchase everything at once. If we talk about wallpaper and tiles, it is better to go to construction hypermarkets, where you will find a very large selection of such products and be able to visually evaluate their colors and quality.
When you purchase all the necessary materials and plumbing, you can proceed directly to the repair itself. Good luck!
