Our Kitchen Remodeling Process

Each project has a different kitchen remodeling process from beginning to end. When dealing with a custom kitchen renovation, no two are exactly alike. In general, a step-by-step guide may look something like this:

1. In-Home Design Consultation

During our design consultation, we discuss your project and get a good understanding of what you’re looking for in your redesign. We take photos and measurements and make design suggestions. Then, we schedule a time for you to visit our design center to review your project and bid details.

2. Design and Bid Presentation

We begin designing your project immediately, using our state-of-the-art design software. When ready, we present the newly designed space and review all the design elements. At this point, we can give you an accurate range of the project’s cost.

3. Pre-Remodel Permits and Plans

Once the contract is signed, we will finalize the design and details. We then begin securing permits by submitting plans and paperwork to the city and county. We also schedule a shopping trip with our senior designer to pick out only the best materials, fixtures, and paint for your new kitchen.

4. Demolition – Removal of Existing Kitchen

Demolition consists of removing old appliances, cabinets, flooring, countertops, and anything else that needs to go. From here, our pros can assess the condition of the floor, ceiling, and walls and decide if corrections are required.

5. Plumbing, Electrical, Floors and Drywall

If you require new light fixtures, plumbing, HVAC, cable or speaker, or electrical wires, they are installed at this point. Once that is finished, we can install flooring, insulation, and drywall.

6. Installation of Cabinets and Countertops

Installation of your countertops and cabinets is next, and your new kitchen starts to take shape. If you want granite countertops or new cabinets, this is when our kitchen remodeling team will install them. This is an essential and meticulous step, as everything needs to be laser-measured and leveled to ensure it looks perfect.

7. Interior Finishing and Painting

We install backsplashes, trim, plumbing fixtures, finish floors (if required), and paint.

8. Fixtures, Appliances, and Cleanup

In this final phase, we touch-up finishes, install new appliances and lighting fixtures, and clean up all our materials and tools.

9. Enjoy your New Kitchen!

At this point, your makeover is complete, and you can begin enjoying it. Plan a dinner party, cook for the family, or order in to keep it spotless. The possibilities are endless!

Renovating the Most Important Room In Your House

Over the last few decades, the evolution of design has accelerated, which makes working with the San Diego area’s best kitchen remodeling contractors even more critical. A worthy design is necessary since the kitchen is one of your home’s busiest and most essential rooms. It’s a gathering place, an entertainment room, and a place of inspiration for ambitious home-cooked meals. Because of this, you need a kitchen remodeling contractor who pays attention to detail.

Your kitchen should always be comfortable, welcoming, and efficiently designed, all while reflecting the individual homeowner’s unique personality. Products are continuously re-engineered, updated, and redesigned to meet consumers’ needs. For example, the needs of multigenerational or age-in-place remodels are markedly different. Kaminskiy’s team knows the latest products on the market and will help you make the proper selections to fit your lifestyle.

Layout changes are an essential aspect of all kitchen renovations. That involves replacing flooring, kitchen countertops, appliances, lighting fixtures, wall placement, and more to create a transformed space.

Kaminskiy Design and Remodeling is the best choice for kitchen renovation needs.

Kitchen Triangle

The Kitchen Triangle

The triangle is a layout that architects and designers use when working on residential projects. The idea is to create an efficient space between key appliances such as the oven, sink, and refrigerator. Designers follow specific principles, including measurements between workstations, the amount of traffic flow between them, and how much counter space should be on either side of each appliance. Have questions about the efficiency of your cooking area? We will be happy to answer any of them! Throughout the project, we will thoroughly explain our process and how that affects the functionality.

Galley Kitchen

Galley Kitchen Layout

This design is also known as a corridor kitchen. It is a long, narrow room with cabinets and appliances on both sides of a walkway. The layout opposes the open concept, where appliances, counters, and cabinets are more dispersed. A galley is often much smaller and less expensive.

This small layout takes up less space inside the house and is considered easier to work around as you cook. A few cons of the galley are less countertop space, difficulty fitting more than one person at a time, and potentially lower resale value than other available layouts. A galley focuses on creating a functional kitchen for everyday living—no kitchen island, bar, or anything else that takes up space.


Open Concept Kitchen

Open Concept Kitchen

This layout has become increasingly popular since the 1970s and is considered by many to be a preferred lifestyle rather than a fad. The open-plan concept includes the kitchen, living room, and dining room all in the same space, giving you an incredibly spacious kitchen. There are no, or very few, walls dividing each space. This all-inclusive layout allows the person (or people) cooking to interact with everybody, even those watching television or eating their meal at the table.

Some cons are that the cooking area can be noisy, disrupting the people in the living room. Cooking smells can reach the sofa, reducing wall space. In addition, if your layout is not already open concept, it is costly. Without any supporting structures, the walls in that area need to be far stronger than those of a standard closed room.

There are a variety of pros and cons to an open space, though some do find that the positives outweigh the negatives. Whichever you prefer, Kaminskiy Design and Remodeling’s kitchen designers will guide you through each step to make sure your choice is the right one.


What To Look For In Kitchen Appliances

For many home cooks, appliances are one of the most essential parts of the kitchen. However, there exists a seemingly endless variety of options. It can be overwhelming for a homeowner. Here are some features to look for when choosing your appliances.

1. Energy Efficiency

Save money and reduce your environmental footprint by looking for appliances with an Energy Star rating.

2. Burner Heat Output

Professional or commercial-grade appliances typically have a better range of high and low heat, allowing you to raise temperatures quickly or maintain a nice, even simmer.

3. Aesthetic

Depending on your kitchen design and style choices, the look of your appliances will differ.

4. Ease of Use

Are the buttons, knobs, and handles easily identifiable and intuitively located? Or are you constantly searching for them? If it takes an engineering degree to operate your stove, you may want to look for a different option.

5. Safety Features

This may be number one if you have young children. Safety features can prevent dangerous accidents from happening.

6. Easy Cleanup

Are the appliances easy to clean? Do they show fingerprints easily? Though these may not seem like important questions to ask, an appliance that is easy to clean can make your life a little easier, too.


Common Kitchen Remodeling Mistakes

A complete kitchen remodel is a big undertaking and should be treated as such. Here is a list of common mistakes people make.

1. Do it yourself

You can do plenty of DIY and home improvement projects, but a complete renovation should not be one of them unless you’re qualified. A full remodel is one of the most significant, expensive, and complicated home projects you can do to your home. A skilled and licensed contractor or remodeling company should always be involved if you want your kitchen remodeled correctly.

2. Choosing the Wrong Contractor

Again, a kitchen remodel is a big, important job – don’t settle for an underqualified person to handle it. Do your due diligence, check reviews, and trust your gut. Don’t necessarily choose someone because their estimate was lower. It may be much more expensive to redo the job if you aren’t happy with the results.

3. Using Cheap Materials

High-quality cabinetry, hardware, and surfaces are expensive but worth it. Cheap hardware can stretch, leaving you with crooked cabinet doors and laminate cabinets that peel easily.

4. Not Being Sure of What You Want

When you approve a design and okay work, ensure you are comfortable and happy with it. If you aren’t sure, check out our kitchen design style guide. Changing your mind mid-project or at the end can lead to costly delays, new work orders, and a significant strain on your budget.


Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to remodel a kitchen?

As with many remodeling projects, kitchen remodels can cost tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars, depending on the size of the kitchen, the design, the materials and appliances you want to use, and the scope of the project.

How long does it take to remodel a kitchen?

The scope of the project and the size of your kitchen can also affect the time it takes to complete the project. Ripping out the guts of your kitchen and installing new pipes and electricity will take more time than simply redoing the floors and fixtures. Simple cosmetic updates to your kitchen will likely take less time than structural changes. It is important to note that it is not uncommon for appliances and materials to be on back order, which will add to the timeline to complete your kitchen remodel.

Do you need a permit to remodel your kitchen?

Generally, yes. Whether you need a permit for this remodeling project does, however, depend on where you live and the type of remodeling project. Installing new cabinets generally does not require permits, whereas plumbing, electrical, and structural changes require permits. Kaminksiy has the experience and knowledge to know what permits you need for your project. Let us take care of the details, including all your permitting needs.

How much value does a kitchen remodel add to your home?

The industry standard for the ROI (return on investment) for a kitchen remodel will vary based on the scope and depth of your remodel. A kitchen remodel’s value to your home also depends on where you live. The national average can be as low as 50% of the total budget, whereas higher-end upgrades to homes on the Pacific can be upwards of 93%.

What is the most expensive part of a kitchen remodel?

The cabinetry is generally the most expensive portion of a kitchen remodeling project. Ensuring your cabinets are flush, level, and support the weight of whatever you put inside is also time-consuming, adding to the total cost. If you opt for high-end appliances, these can also be a significant factor in the total price.

What makes a good kitchen remodeling contractor?

Simply put, a good remodeling company has the skill and experience to complete any project on schedule and within budget. They should also be transparent and communicate with the homeowner throughout the process. Kaminskiy keeps you updated and involved throughout the entire design and remodel process, and we have the experience to keep your project on budget and schedule.
