Tip 2: Assessment Worksheet - Deciding What You Want
Once you've made your decision to update your kitchen, there are a few things to think about. Using an assessment worksheet will help you organize your budget and insure that you have included everything that is important to your lifestyle. For example: maybe more counter space is important to you, or the need for the "work triangle" design needs to be incorporated. The worksheet will help you to identify your wants and needs.

If you are considering a kitchen renovation, for a limited time Wo-Built is offering a free kitchen assessment.Depending on your lifestyle, most people will have a combination of different needs.
The best thing to do is to make a list and research how much the items on your list will cost and this will give you a realistic breakdown of what is needed for your budget in the kitchen renovation. Keep in mind, the cost of the renovation work will also depend on the condition of the existing structure. If you have any water damage or old pipes that will need replacing, this will be added to the cost. Look out for our next tip!Lonya is the staff writer for Wo-Built Inc.
