Renovating your kitchen isn't as simple as going out and buying a new fridge or stove. It's a major undertaking that requires significant planning before you even step into the appliance section of your home improvement store.

Start with HGTVRemodels' Kitchen Planning Guide and develop a well-thought-out plan for your kitchen remodel. You should identify goals and priorities, with the help of a completed Day in the Life of Your Kitchen Questionnaire and Kitchen Goals Worksheet. You also should have a clear vision of what your new kitchen will look like, after exploring various kitchen designs and layouts and planning out space and storage. Finally, you should have a solid budget to follow.
