You can imagine how long the list can get! One of the biggest mistakes you can make is not only coming up with a renovation budget that you’re comfortable with, but coming up with a renovation budget that includes these features. Come up with a design plan for the style of kitchen you want, choosing a cabinet style & colour and when you’re planning, be sure to include Countertop material; Light fixtures; Backsplash; flooring; Cabinetry hardware & plumbing fixtures as these are an essential part of the kitchen renovations process.
