Not long after we were married, we bought a house in a great area that an architect had designed for himself and his family. We loved it - very Frank Lloyd Wright, with lots of land. So began the adventure. Having just moved into our new home, we came to the conclusion that the kitchen definitely needed to be redone - yes, the kitchen interior design project was on.
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.
If you have an older house with an enclosed kitchen, you may even wish to remove the door or widen the entry to make it feel less closed off from the rest of the house. Modern kitchens are social centers, after all, not just places to cook food. Need more countertop space? Before you install all new ones, think about reorganizing your existing appliances and storage, or bringing in a cart and butcher block. Those methods can do a lot for your kitchen without the need to tear things out.
