Kitchen and bath remodels have a huge impact on home value, not to mention the general personality of the house. While these types of remodels are exciting, they can also be complicated and expensive. Fortunately, this one simple interior design tip for remodeling can make a huge difference in your remodeling process, saving you time, money, and frustration.

So what is the tip? It’s simple: Start with the most limiting element of the remodel and work backwards from there.

For instance, say you want granite countertops. There are only so many options in granite colors and price points, so pick out your slab before deciding on the cabinet finishes. Once you have settled on the type of granite you want, you can pick from an endless selection of cabinet colors, finishes, and decorative features.

Another common interior design conundrum involves wood floors in the kitchen. If you are dead set on having beautiful, dark walnut wood floors, that is going to have a huge effect on the cabinets you choose. Do you want wall-to-wall wood, or a mix of wood and paint? Do you want to create a contrast between the floor and cabinetry, or do you like the look of coordinated flooring and cabinets?

This same principle can be applied to many of the decisions you will have to make during your kitchen or bath remodel, from tile, lighting, and fixtures to cabinetry, flooring, and hardware. Working with an experienced interior designer will help simplify the design process, ensuring that your project stays on time, on budget, and leaves you with a finished project you will love for years to come.
