Remodel Checklist

Use this handy checklist to stay on track throughout your project.

1Get Inspired

  • Explore ideas on Pinterest, Houzz and other home design sites to gather photos of rooms with must‐have features
  • Keep a scrapbook of ideas that reflect your personal style
  • Visit The Home Depot to view American Woodmark® product selections
  • Make a list of the things that annoy you about your current space as well as a list of must‐have features and details
  • Consider how you might alter your floorplan to accommodate a more functional space

2Find Your Look

  • Think about your personal style and define whether your look is more traditional, contemporary, craftsman, farmhouse or otherwise
  • Work with your designer to narrow your choices of door styles and finishes that achieve your look
  • Order American Woodmark door samples so you can view in the actual light of your space
  • Compare your choices of finish with the paint colors in your home to make sure they are complementary
  • Think about how the door styles fit with the furnishings in your home
  • Consider and choose complementary appliances

3Plan Your Space

  • Measure the space you are remodeling
  • Sketch out a plan using the ENVISION 3D Remodel Tool and share with your Home Depot designer
  • Schedule an in‐store appointment with a Home Depot kitchen designer
  • If you are using a remodeling contractor, schedule an in‐home visit to discuss your plans
  • Create a budget that includes: cabinets, countertops, flooring, lighting, fixtures, appliances, paint color, backsplash tile and labor
  • Anticipate a professional remodel expert visiting your home to measure your space precisely

4Choose Details

  • Once you’ve decided on your layout, door style and finish, it’s time to select the decorative details
  • Consider the custom organizational features that will store dishes, utensils, cookware, small appliances, pantry items and anything else that is a staple for you
  • Discuss the molding, glass features and other details that will enhance your cabinets and make them fit your home décor
  • Select the hardware that will set your cabinets apart while adding the perfect functionality you’re looking for
  • Finalize your decisions and get ready to start your remodel
