When you have multiple parties involved in a renovation, you’ll have different opinions and perspectives. Ultimately, it’s up to you to do what you wish. More importantly, you want a functional home. Thinking along the lines of functionality will clarify the order of fixtures and appliances to renovate.
Let’s discuss how and what part of the kitchen to renovate first to narrow things down.
Demolition and Plumbing
Before anything happens, strip your kitchen down as bare as possible. If you restore the plumbing and other basics—like the flooring and walls—you’ll have a fresh start with a brand-new kitchen.
Having a bare view of your kitchen will allow you to see it more clearly so you can brainstorm ideas and add or take away from your perfect design.
Walls and Floors
After demolition, your kitchen will have exposed walls and floors, leaving your room bare and open for remodeling. You’ll need to insulate the walls and add new drywall to reinvent what was once there, so pick a clean palette.

After picking out the flooring and restoring the walls, you can move on to the next step—filling your kitchen with new appliances.
All New Appliances
One of the most important things you could change, aside from the refrigerator and stovetop, is the faucet. Everything revolves around the water system with cooking and cleaning. No matter how often you cook, you’ll always clean and use water. Upgrade to something more powerful, like a high-end kitchen faucet, that fits your budget and style.
After discussing what part of the kitchen you should renovate first, we can see that the plumbing comes first and last. This shows the level of importance a running watering system is for a kitchen. So, make sure your faucet is always operating properly, or your kitchen will be in need of serious repair without fresh running water at your disposal.
