Frequently Asked Kitchen Remodeling Questions

In What Order Should You Remodel a Kitchen?

Our goal at Heartwood Residential Design + Build is for the remodeling experience to be one you enjoy, not one filled with stress and discomfort. The optimal sequence for remodeling a kitchen ensures efficiency and quality and prioritizes your individual and household needs. 

We start with planning and design, considering every detail from layout to finishes. Demolition follows, making way for structural changes. Then, we proceed with plumbing, electrical, and HVAC updates, ensuring your kitchen is equipped with the latest tech in green energy. After installing flooring, we move to cabinetry and countertops, followed by backsplash and appliance installation. The final touch is painting, bringing your vision to life with color and texture. Kitchen renovations in San Jose and Santa Clara can be a positive experience - with the right builder.

What Is the Most Expensive Part of a Kitchen Remodel?

If you are hiring a custom builder, the most expensive part of a kitchen remodel will be labor and design. You are investing in expertise. Outside of that, custom cabinetry typically comprises the largest portion of a kitchen remodeling budget due to its significant role in function and aesthetics. At Heartwood Residential Design + Build, we work with various suppliers to offer high-quality options that fit your established budget.

We specialize in ensuring that any project– from a Santa Clara kitchen remodeling project to a kitchen design in San Jose – remains uncompromised on quality and design.  

What Is the Golden Rule for Kitchen Design?

The golden rule for kitchen design is the "work triangle," a time-tested principle ensuring efficiency in movement between the sink, refrigerator, and stove. This layout minimizes unnecessary steps and allows for comfortable cooking and cleaning processes. Whether it’s a kitchen remodel in Santa Clara or a kitchen renovation in San Jose, we customize this principle to fit your lifestyles, integrating it with current trends like open-concept spaces and multi-functional islands.
