Everything But the Kitchen Sink
An often overlooked part of remodeling a kitchen is the kitchen sink. However, a quality and properly installed kitchen sink can save a homeowner a lot of grief later.

This is one of the big mistakes of kitchen remodeling, as many times plumbers are called to hook up a sink where the wall pipes are too high to connect to the sink. A good idea would be to shop together for the sink and counters.
Saving Money of Flooring Could Cost More Later
Remodeling a kitchen floor is an absolutely wonderful way to make the kitchen look fresh and updated. However, many times people attempt to save money on flooring by simply putting in new flooring up to cabinets, dishwater, etc.
This leaves the floor under it as either a version of the old flooring or with no tile at all. This could cause problems in the long run because it makes it costly and difficult to install new dishwashers and cabinets since the flooring under them must also be replaced.
Make sure that replacement flooring is done through the entire kitchen. Hire a professional plumber that specializes in kitchen remodeling to avoid this problem.
