You Might Be Wondering...
...how you can prepare and research for your Carlsbad kitchen remodel for next year! The most important thing is to get remodeling input from the right sources. We're confidant that the Teknik team is the right source!
Here are our Top Three Tips!
- Open up the layout
- Embrace the design-build process
- Prepare for the execution
Man, we know about being overwhelmed and not knowing where to start with kitchen remodeling contractors.
But don’t worry. In this article, we'll show you where to start!
Read on for the first three things you MUST KNOW before you begin!
1. Open Up The Layout
The big realization in 2020 and 2021 is that we all need enough space to live, work, exercise, etc. in your home...long term.
When you have to work from home, it's easy to allow your work life to taint your experience of your home. You work on the couch, in the kitchen, on the patio, perhaps in your bedroom.
Please don't allow your whole house to be ruined by working from home! You may just need to remodel the space including kitchen and baths to create a more compatible work area. A few ideas are:
- Remove a divider wall
- Remove an L-shaped wall
- Replace doors and windows for better light or ventilation
- Remove all different types of flooring and replace with continuous flooring
With the total square feet available in your home, or on the main floor, you can have a way better experience of your home with an updated layout.
If you search remodeling companies near me you'll find that over 4000 general contractor's come up. But they are not all what you're looking for for your home remodel.
Make sure you hire a design-build firm that has an architect and engineer on their team already so that you have a one-stop-shop experience and don't have to farm out your own job to a disjointed series of subs.
2. Embrace The Design-Build Process
On one hand, you've got ideas and dreams. Kitchen makeovers are supposed to be fun!
On the other hand, you've got a physical home with physical limitations and a budget with limitations as well. What does the average kitchen remodel cost?
The design-build process is full of checks and balances so that your design ideas can be explored until they meet your budget. You've got to get into design elements, architecture, engineering, and selections in order to get to a tight budget price range.
But once your budget has been updated throughout the design process, you'll be able to value-engineer and play with different options to tweak the price until you find a number that works. This will feel like volley ball--it's a lot of back and forth!

3. Prepare For The Execution
Home remodeling contractors should prepare you for the process, i.e. are you staying or moving out?
Demolition can be quick but it will be messy and loud. Even with HEPA vacuums and thousands of dollars of equipment, including air scrubbers, the process of home renovation and kitchen renovation is always messy.
Additionally, it is wise to plan for 10% flexion of the project calendar plus additional time for every change order or request for additional work.
The project timeline can get emotional at about 60% completion. Remember that if you're feeling uneasy or antsy, your superintendent can address every question and concern you have as long as you share it with him. Even a small kitchen remodel can have surprises, so over-communicate to ensure smooth transfer of information.
You'll be done in no time at all and ready to party! Fire up the barbecue, invite the neighbors! Time to celebrate your new kitchen and make some jealous neighbors!
Carlsbad Kitchen Renovation Cost
If you call the first three firms that come up when you search remodeling companies near me, they will give you three different answers to the same question...This is because it's sort of like asking how much a new car costs. Obviously, the answer depends (a lot) on the type and the options you want!
Having said that, we tend to cater to homeowners in North County with home values of $900,000 to $3,000,000+ and our remodels typically cost anywhere from $60,000 to $250,000. For a better estimate, click here to set up free consultation.
Kitchen renovation...How Long Will It Take?
Most of our kitchen projects take 6 to 16 weeks. Partial remodels or kitchen makeovers that don't remove everything down to the studs can take 4 to 12 weeks.
