Kitchen Remodeling Part 3

Kitchen Remodeling Part 3.  Remodeling your kitchen means custom cabinet orders, and all the works. With that, you are probably thinking of getting rid of the old fridge and freezer, and a couple more bits and pieces of things. That takes time to plan, order and to ship in. If you think you are going to be done with it in less time than four months, I think you are making a mistake. Better for you to be prepared for the long haul.Kitchen Remodeling Part 3

Now I don’t know what you are thinking that kitchen remodeling is all about, but before you go all swooning and counting off the changes you want on the fingers of ten hands, I’d say you snap into reality first. Think your way through a couple of these phrases – lots of work, lots of time needed to plan and execute, lots of moving around… All that wasn’t meant to scare you, just to bring you to the reality of it. Now I’m certain that since you have your head and heart in the right place, things aren’t likely to go wrong anymore.

You need to process the orders you are making for your kitchen remodeling. Thankfully, the internet has made that relatively easy, but there are human errors that computers cannot account for. If you want all of your deliveries to be on time, you might have to put some special effort into it. A few calls here and there might set you on track.

After you have placed your orders for your new kitchen fixtures, you are still going to have to wait for the shipping of them to come in. Some folks want to go on ahead to demolishing the kitchen already, but I strongly urge that you wait until your shipments arrive. When you remodel your kitchen, little mistakes, like the wrong or late delivery of fixtures ordered, can throw a monkey wrench in your program.

But doing it all on your own would break your back before you’re halfway through it… figuratively speaking, or course. What I’m trying to tell you is that the process of rebuilding the life of a kitchen will take more than just you; it will take everybody else you can bring in, especially someone skilled in kitchen remodeling.

Kitchen remodeling is not just something you do; it is an art, like painting a Monet or, more appropriately, re-painting it. It’s hard work doing it the first time, but even harder trying to recreate the magic – make something new without losing the wonder that lies beneath. If you cannot think of it that way, you may never be able to do it right.

There is one sure way to make yourself unhappy when dealing with remodeling your kitchen, and that is in focusing all of your energy on the wrong things. I know of folks who would go on and on about how much it is going to cost them, and all the stress of it. The problem with this is that it saps out the pleasure in all the activity, and makes a mess of it long before it is over.

Building the whole home certainly hit you in the financial gut for a bit, no doubt; I’m yet to meet the family that didn’t have that story to tell. Reworking the kitchen alone is not going to be a lot easier either. There are things to do, and even if you are not starting from the foundation this time, all the fittings, refitting, painting and repainting can do things to your purse you thought were long gone since you had the home built. But it’s no reason to be discouraged; merely cause for cautious planning and execution.

Now don’t you run off thinking it’s some walk in the park or something, ‘cause it isn’t. remodeling your kitchen is a full time job that is going to take you a couple of weeks in the least, so you want to begin by proper planning, otherwise you won’t like the result. Didn’t they say “proper prior planning prevents poor performance”?

When you are tired of seeing the same ol’ pots, pans and kitchen utensils all the time, you know it’s time for you to be remodeling that kitchen. Chances are that by the time you are feeling that way, so are the bugs and roaches that have made home in the nooks and crannies too. Now you want to flush them out, and make the place all homey again.

Without the heart for it, remodeling your kitchen or attempting to will be a total waste of time, not to mention an outright disaster. There are so many things that could go wrong; I could not even begin to mention them right away. Suffice to say that if you do not have the time and energy to commit to it, you are lost already. Better not to have begun.

There is more to remodeling a kitchen than just being there in person; your heart and soul have got to be in it as well. Consider first that it will cost you a lot of funds already, and then consider that this is where the food you live on daily comes from. Now ask yourself: do you want to make a mess of this one? I didn’t think so.
