[howdini - get yourself a guru] Hi. I'm Nadia Geller, interior designer for Homestyler. [Nadia Geller, Interior Designer] Today I'm here on location at the Bellato showroom in New York City to talk about how to get started with a kitchen remodel. It's a big job, but with the right planning tools you can try out all sorts of things before you even buy a teapot. First, you need to think ahead. Are you planning to sell your home within the next few years? [If planning to sell, choose a mainstream style] If so, you'll want to stick to a more mainstream style to make your home easier to sell. But if you're going to be living in it for a while, you can select whatever you like the most. [If planning to stay, choose any style] These considerations are so important to helping you make wise decisions when remodeling. [Take time frames into consideration] Once you've taken time frames into consideration and you really understand what you want from your kitchen, start looking for things that appeal to you. This is where a home design program really helps. [] This one is Homestyler. It's a free online service, and it lets you create endless layouts in 3D. You can experiment with all sorts of things for your new kitchen. It can help you decide on everything from wall colors to appliances before you lift a paintbrush or spend a dime. It's so important to see it ahead of time, and 3D really helps. One couple I worked with couldn't agree on whether or not to have the grill outside or a cooktop grill in the island. We played around with the layout like I'm doing now with this one, and we quickly came to a decision they were both happy with. Have fun creating new layouts. Try different things, and sample layouts from other Homestyler users. And don't forget to print out your designs. Start a binder and include other ideas and pictures from magazines. Once you choose a layout the whole family loves, it's time to meet with some professionals. They can help you make the best decisions for your big remodel. Be sure to choose people whose work you have seen and who come highly recommended by friends or neighbors.
