What is Renovation?

Renovations is process of improving a broken, damaged, or outdated structure. Renovations are typically either commercial or residential.Additionally, renovation can refer to making something new, or bringing something back to life and can apply in social contexts.

The renovation process can usually be broken down into several processes:

 

Planning

Structural Repair

Engineering

Technology has had a meaningful impact on the renovation process, increasing the significance and  strength of the planning stage. The decision regarding changes is also influenced by the purpose of renovation.

The processes and services required for renovations are quite specific and, once plans are signed off, building a new home is relatively predictable. Renovations usually require all of the sub-trades that are needed for the construction of a new building. During renovation projects, flexibility is often required from renovation companies to respond to unexpected issues that arise. Projects involving renovation require not just flexibility, but a plan that had been agreed upon by multiple parties. The planning process will involve feedback from financial investors of the project, and from the designer. Part of planning will also entail the collection of data for the completion of the project and then the project plan will be revised and given consent before continuing with renovations.

When planning a kitchen renovation, consider how foot traffic flows in and out of the kitchen, and how more than one person often uses the kitchen at a time. An improved layout in the kitchen can mean more natural traffic flow and less congestion. Consider a few suggestions you might keep in mind for your kitchen renovation:

  • If more than one person does the cooking at a time, space the appliances a bit further apart and away from the sink. This added space will reduce congestion in the kitchen when one person chops and preps food while another tends to the stovetop or dishes in the sink.
  • A large kitchen island is an excellent option for food prep and for serving the family breakfast and casual dinners; however, be sure your island doesnt get in the way of a refrigerator or oven door, and that it doesnt have sharp corners that can cause injury as someone walks around it.

Energy-efficient appliances are also an excellent choice for a kitchen remodel. Dishwashers with various setting options will save both water and power, while convection ovens cook food faster than standard ovens, so you wind up using less energy for your cooking overall.

A kitchen renovation is an excellent opportunity to bring in some energy saving options for your home. These options might include a dishwasher with many programmable options, so you dont waste energy and water for a lighter load.

Flat, full-extension drawers are much more shallow than regular drawers and, as the name implies, can be pulled out to their very back edge. You can store your tools and gadgets in these flat drawers without stacking them on top of each other, or use these drawers for plates, platters, and other such items. The longer extension also means being able to easily access and remove items in the back of the drawers.

If you prepare a lot of fresh food, you might appreciate magnetic strips along your kitchens backsplash. These strips hold the blade end of your knives, so you dont need to take up space on the counter for a knife block. You can also easily see each blade and know which knife to reach for while preparing your food.
