Remodeling a kitchen is a great way to add value to your home. There are a couple of things that are important in kitchen remodels. Today, we’re sharing a few mistakes that are pretty common and easy to avoid.
Cracked Ceramic Tile
Ceramic tile is a beautiful covering for your floor. But if there’s a crack in the tile, it’s going to be expensive to fix. That crack comes from the subflooring not being laid right. When you use ceramic tile, the subfloor has to be absolutely still. Save yourself the time and expense of this mistake and use a contractor who knows how to handle the floor and subfloor properly.
Make sure you’re making the best use of your space in the kitchen. This is another problem that we see a lot. If you have a small kitchen, you don’t want your refrigerator door opening up into that space. It’s an easy fix to have the door swing out in the opposite direction so you’re able to get in and out of the fridge and not trap yourself behind the door. Spending a little extra time upfront in the planning stage will help you get the kitchen of your dreams, and also take care of the little nuisances like which way doors and cabinets open, the spaces between appliances, and more.
This is a more subtle mistake, but another good reason to have someone help you think through the remodeling process. If hinges are on the wrong side of a cabinet, it will bump into doors and appliances. Than can break the hinge and make it awkward to get into that space. You need to use another kind of opening or put a hinge on the other side. These are few examples of mistakes that can be made unintentionally during a kitchen remodel product. There is a lot of value in using a real professional. If you need help planning your remodel, contact us at HandyQuick, and we’d be happy to help you.
Selecting a Remodeling Contractor in Minneapolis & St Paul Minnesota
When you select a contractor to remodel your kitchen in your Minneapolis St Paul MN home, you should be sure to find out if they are in fact a registered business in the State of Minnesota and have a contractor’s license.

Be sure to ask for these documents, and also review the specific contract to make sure that the materials you select are specifically indicated in your contract. You should ask for written estimates for all work, and check out the company on the Better Business Bureau, Angles List, or other reliable listing service, and also visit the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry and verify that the contractor is licensed, and is in good standing with the State.
