Why You Should Redo Your Floors Before Your Kitchen


Why remodeling your kitchen floors is a good idea. 

When planning a home renovation, it can be challenging to decide the order in which to tackle various projects. If you are planning to renovate your kitchen or a floor remodel, it is best to start with the floors first. This method makes renovating easier and helps keep your investment safe for both the flooring and kitchen upgrades. Here’s why you should consider redoing your floors before diving into your kitchen renovation.

1. Protecting Your New Kitchen

Installing or renovating flooring after completing a kitchen remodel can put new appliances, cabinets, and countertops at risk. The process of a floor remodel often involves heavy lifting, tools, and materials that could potentially scratch or damage your new kitchen components. By remodeling the floor first, you can avoid any accidental damage to your newly updated kitchen.

2. Seamless Design Integration

Flooring serves as a foundational design element in your home. By choosing and installing your new floors first, you provide a blank canvas upon which to build your new kitchen.

This allows every element of the kitchen design to match the flooring. This includes the cabinet color and the backsplash style. The result is a unified look. Furthermore, it’s easier to match kitchen components to the floor than to match flooring to pre-existing kitchen elements.

3. Avoiding Structural Inconsistencies

It is suggested to make any structural changes to the kitchen before installing new flooring. This may include removing or adding walls as part of your renovation.

Making these changes beforehand can help ensure a smooth and successful flooring installation process. This helps ensure that the flooring will run consistently throughout the kitchen without awkward breaks or seams. Completing the floor first will ensure that the new kitchen layout aligns perfectly with your floor design. This will result in a more professional finish.

4. Efficient Use of Time and Resources

Renovating the floor first can also be more efficient. During a kitchen remodel, having the floor accessible speeds up demolition and installation since there are no obstacles in the way. This clear access reduces the labor time and complexity involved, potentially lowering the cost of installation. Additionally, with the floors already in place, you won’t need to cover or protect them (as they are designed to withstand heavy use), making the subsequent kitchen build more straightforward.

5. Flexibility in Kitchen Design Choices

Starting with a floor remodel offers more flexibility in selecting kitchen materials and finishes. Knowing the style, color, and texture of your floors can guide decisions on kitchen cabinetry, countertops, and even appliances. This ensures that all elements of your kitchen will harmonize, enhancing the overall design integrity of your space.
