Next Kitchen Remodeling Part 2. With perhaps four more arms and a couple of heads, redoing your kitchen might not be that much trouble after all. 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.
