We had the contractors start the parade - looking at the layout of the kitchen and the cabinet construction, the overall construction of the house and the kitchen in particular. The bids came in - slowly at first and then in a deluge. The prices were astounding. This was in the early 1980's and the low bid was $12,000, and that was for a new sink, paint and "new cabinet facings" (new doors on the existing cabinets!) Now the house was not inexpensive, but these prices were out of sight! Times were much like today, many people out of work and contracts were few and far between.
There are lots of minor things you can do to improve a kitchen that's not terribly friendly to work in. Simply moving the appliances or changing the way you store things can be a big help. Consider taking the doors off the cabinets and leaving them open. You'll be surprised by how much it opens up a room. A new coat of paint can change how open or closed in the kitchen feels, as can choosing to move some items to a pantry or other storage area instead of leaving them in the kitchen proper.
Whether you do it yourself or hire a designer for your kitchen interior design, careful planning is needed to achieve the effect you are looking for in the design. If doing it yourself you must be aware of some of the biggest mistakes made by homeowners when re-designing their kitchen.
Kitchens seem to get old fast, and with the amount we use them, it's no surprise. If it's time for remodeling or redecorating your kitchen's interior, you might be wondering where to start. It can seem pretty overwhelming at first. However, it doesn't have to be if you slow down, take your time, and keep a few things in mind. You can have an inexpensive, great looking kitchen without too much hassle. Let's take a look at some of the best ways to do it.
Many new homeowners I've talked to think of home improvement to be a daunting task. True, it can be for those who attempt to completely renovate their entire home at once. They are often faced with a number of different problems all at once dealing with having to move furniture and other items out of the way so the renovation can take place. For smart homeowner, a kitchen redesign is easier since they choose to only do a little bit at a time. Completing each project, such as adding soapstone stoves or a soapstone counter, one project at a time avoids many of the everyday hassles and interruptions of daily life.
