When your remodel spills over into other rooms

This is part of our ongoing series following a Kitchen Warehouse customer’s kitchen and bath remodel project. See the others here.

New wiring for switchless lights

Our new lighting system requires a more complex wiring system. This one is in a closet.

When you start planning your kitchen remodel, don’t forget to consider rooms and other things next to the kitchen that may affect your remodel – like adjacent living rooms, closets, windows, doors or other items you are going to want to adjust to match your new kitchen.

In my case, the flooring throughout the bottom floor, the windows and doors in the living room and dining room are all shared with the kitchen now that the dividing wall have been removed.

 

 

wiring built in surround sound, and lighting remote system

The wiring for the surround sound and lighting has affected all stages of the remodel.

In addition, we decided to add surround sound to our attached living room and controlled lighting throughout the bottom floor since the controller could control the sound system and the lighting. We also opted for upgraded LED lighting in the kitchen with a dimmer switch.

This sent us on a learning curve that meant adjusting the lighting and speakers and needing a furniture plan way before we thought it would be necessary.

  1. I want to give thanks so much for the work you have made in writing this post. I am hoping the same most effective work by you down the road also.

  2. There are many things you can do to open up a room. Particularly like in this kitchen where they live in a tall but skinny home. By taking down the wall their options for an expandable dining table that allows them to have their daily meal of four but to expand to a group of 12 or 14 will really make a difference. Also creating more counter top space for the cook and eliminating a peninsula that was choking off the cooks space, will allow the room to flow freely from the dining room table to the kitchen counter so the cook and the guests will not feel so crowded.
