The Remodel Process
In all honesty I will survive just fine. I have been part of so many kitchen and bath remodels, I forget that this could be a homeowners first real life experience with a remodel. And if you are planning your first remodel i promise, you this. You are not ready for the dust. I know everyone has told you it bad, but seriously you have no idea how bad it will be.
Declutter, Declutter, Declutter. Get rid of all the junk - spices, cookbooks, utensils, gadgets that dont work or have never been used, They gotta go – Start the project before the end of the year--one kitchen drawer/cabinet at a time. The plan should be to get it done in 3 months – set up your foundation for all your goals, by first simplifying and organizing.
And why your at it, make the kitchen look stylish and up to date.
You’ll want to cook more. Eating out all the time is not a good way to stay on your new diet. A home-cooked meal is much healthier, usually more satisfying and certainly more affordable. Still, if you don’t have a kitchen that you enjoy being in then you probably aren’t making the most of it. A kitchen renovation can help get you organized and make your space more accessible – which means mealtime preparations will be easier and more enjoyable.
A new kitchen adds a ton of value. While a kitchen may be one of the costliest rooms to renovate, it can also sell a home. That’s because home buyers tend to look at the kitchen first.
Style is an extension of who you are. You change your wardrobe and probably your hairstyle to keep up with the latest fashions… Your home is an extension of who you are and the kitchen is the most important room of the home. Why not make your kitchen match who you are and fortunately, the style will stay in fashion a great deal longer than your new pair shoes.
This year…Spend more time with family
A bright, cheery and well organized kitchen is inviting! You will find you spend more time together there enjoying one another. After all, it’s where your food and incredible aromas reside year round, which means you very well might find you and your loved ones do too….maybe while you find yourself cooking up some great cuisine or sipping on some wine. It’s not just a place to eat.
Make your Kitchen be the foundation this year for the rest of your resolutions.
To a prosperous, happy and healthy New Year…
