Redoing Your Kitchen Before The Holidays

Redoing Your Kitchen Before The Holidays

October 7, 2021

It’s hard to believe the holiday season is just around the corner. Many families were only able to gather virtually last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but we can finally celebrate together. Before hosting your loved ones for a big feast this year, get your space looking its best by contacting Cavalier Builders to remodel your Los Angeles kitchen.

Planning Your Kitchen Remodel

There are several things to consider before breaking ground on your kitchen remodel. Keeping the holidays in mind will help you develop a vision for how you want the style and layout of your room. A professional contractor from Cavalier Builders will help you design the kitchen you envision when thinking of your family gathered for the holidays. Some ideas to consider when planning your remodel are:

Seating Arrangements

Do you picture interacting with your family while you’re cooking up Thanksgiving dinner? Or would you prefer they are comfortably seated away from you? Barstools around the counter, lounge seating near a window, or both if you have the space are seating options to think about when making your plans. You should also consider the size of the room and the size of the table you want if you don’t have a separate formal dining area. 

Cabinetry and storage

Developing a plan for the layout of your cabinets is essential when planning a kitchen remodel. Choosing drawers, shelves, lazy-susans, and other features like an under-the-counter trash can to utilize your space best is no simple task. You also want to consider the size and shape of your pantry to best suit your storage needs. 

Lighting Fixtures

Be sure to consider your options for lighting features in your kitchen during the planning process. A bright room is excellent for cooking, but you may want to create a different atmosphere using dimmers when entertaining. Under-cabinet lighting is another option you may enjoy in your upgraded kitchen.


Choosing your appliances is an essential part of planning for your kitchen remodel. When you imagine cooking for your guests, think about what would make the process easiest. Double ovens are a nice feature that comes in handy when preparing several dishes for the holidays or baking a variety of goods. With the material shortages inflicted by the pandemic, some appliances are on backorder for weeks or months, so plan accordingly. 

Color Scheme

Deciding on the color scheme for this room can be a daunting task. You want your finishes and furnishings to match, not clash. Be sure that everything you choose compliments each other, including:

  • Flooring
  • Cabinetry
  • Cabinet hardware
  • Backsplash
  • Appliances
  • Rangehood
  • Lighting fixtures
  • Countertops
  • Walls 
  • Sink
  • Faucets

How Long Does A Kitchen Remodel Take?

The time it takes to remodel your kitchen depends on how big of a project you are doing. Some remodeling projects require a lot of coordination with your contractor, plumber, and electrician. Material availability is also a huge factor in the process. Speak openly with your contractor about your time constraints and concerns to ensure everyone is on the same page. 

To expedite your remodel, you must set a budget and stick to it. If you want the remodel done as quickly as possible, you must be decisive. Changing your mind on finishes and fixtures will affect your budget and your timeline.
