So, you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen. Congratulations! That is an exciting step to take and a wonderful gift to give yourself. Kitchens are the heart of the home – we spend so much time in our kitchens creating masterpiece meals, on-the-go goodies, and, most important of all, memories. That being said, deciding to remodel your kitchen is the first decision of many before your contractor comes in to work their magic.
One of the first things to consider when remodeling your kitchen is the type of remodel that will work best for your home as well as the result you are looking for. The two main types of kitchen remodels are “pull and replace” and “structural”. So – the question is, which one is right for you?
Pull and Replace
A pull and replace remodel is just as it sounds. Pull out the old and replace it with new! No walls or plumbing are moved, the existing footprint stays exactly the same. This type of remodel is perfect if you are looking for a purely cosmetic kitchen facelift. New cabinets, appliances, backsplash, and countertops can do wonders to upgrade your outdated space or replace the quirky taste of the previous owner.
Pull and replace remodels also, on average, take less time to complete and can be more affordable than a structural remodel.
Structural remodels are fantastic for homeowners who are looking to transform their homes. Structural remodels entail removing or moving walls, expanding spaces, moving or adding plumbing, and often include more than one room in your home. A structural remodel will enhance and transform the layout of your home. If you have a small kitchen but a large adjacent room that you’d like to borrow space from, or perhaps your home is walled off and you’re looking to open up your space to create more communal space, a structural remodel is the best fit for your needs.
If you’re talking about a structural remodel we highly recommend working with a design-build contractor like THE Remodel Group.
