If this is your first partial or full kitchen renovation, it may help to measure and draw your kitchen layout, obtain samples of each of the materials you plan to use and place them beside each other to get a visual idea of how they work together, or not.
Ideally, any lighting changes should be done first, as cabinet refinishing should fall near the end of your renovation. Back splashes, counter-top and floor changes are often messy, and should be done BEFORE painting the cabinets, while painting walls surrounding the cabinets should be last.
Choose new handles, knobs and hinges BEFORE the doors are removed, so you can get a visual idea of what they look like, especially if their location on the doors will change. Face frame hinges are visible when the doors are closed, and we can usually replace these with completely hidden Euro style hinges. Please mention this in your inquiry for a quote.
