5 Simple Steps To A Modern Kitchen Renovation


Determine the Scope and Style of Your
Kitchen Renovation

Remodelling your kitchen is a big job and a considerable investment in your home's value. Start by figuring out the scope of your needs for your renovation project.

Updating your cabinets is the quickest way to make a huge impact. With special order custom cabinets, you can ensure you get the perfect setup for your kitchen.

Be realistic about your lifestyle and how you'll use your space. Do you love to cook or have a large family? You may want to expand for more room or better functionality. Are you always ordering takeout or entertaining guests? Refresh your look with more stylish cabinet finishes or countertops!

Take some time to collect ideas for your favourite trends and features. For inspiration, follow our Kitchen Pinterest Board. This can help you visualize your dream renovation ideas.

If you don't know what you're looking for, that's OK too! Our Kitchen Specialists at your local Lowe's are up-to-date on the best trends, styles, features, and finishes. They can work with you to make sure you can get the kitchen you're looking for.

Build Your Budget

Once you understand your needs and goals, you’re ready to build your budget.

Keep in mind how much time and energy you’re willing to spend. For example, a DIY approach can shave expenses, but it might take longer to complete. There are also more risks involved, depending on your level of experience. Sometimes there are more savings in the long run by seeking help from professionals.

Consider credit financing options that can help make your ideal kitchen an affordable reality. For example, with Lowe’s Consumer Credit, there are no payments, no interest, and no fees for your kitchen purchases if paid in full within the year. This covers appliances, special order cabinets, and countertops!

Visit your local Lowe’s to apply for a temporary credit card and start shopping in-store, or learn more about our credit services online.



















Measure and Sketch
Your Kitchen Layout

There are four common kitchen layouts: one-wall, galley, L-shape, and U-shape. Measure your kitchen cabinets, countertops, and appliances in detail (width, height, length) and try to draw a rough sketch of your current layout.

It doesn’t have to look perfect, as long as it gives a good idea of available space. Don’t forget to mark electrical outlets and plumbing fixtures. This will affect how you will lay out your cabinetry, and where you’ll place items such as your sink, faucets, and appliances.

Accuracy is key for a smooth, stress-free kitchen renovation. Exact measurements ensure your new appliances, countertops, or custom cabinets fit together perfectly.

Let Professional Installers
Take Care of the Rest

Sit back and relax! In this last step, your Kitchen Specialist works in sync with certified and trained installers to complete your master plan.

For a quick and easy kitchen installation, you’ll be contacted to book an appointment for an in-home consultation. Your installer will confirm measurements for guaranteed fit and an accurate quote.

When it’s time to start building, you’ll be contacted again to confirm a convenient date and time for your installer’s next visit.

On the big day, you won’t have to worry about a thing. Your installer takes care of assembly and delivery of all your new products. They also remove and haul away your existing appliances, cabinets, and countertops. When they’re finished, they’ll help to test your kitchen for proper installation and clean up any mess.

That’s it! You’re standing in your beautiful, brand new kitchen!

By making an effort to inform yourself before your kitchen remodel, you’ve already taken a positive step in the right direction. You’re well on your way to achieve your goal — good luck and happy renovating!
