Like so many of my clients, I am having a hard time with some of the details of my kitchen remodel. My husband says "honey, just get what you want", but since this is my project and I am on a tight budget it means that I can't have everything I want. I have to make choices.
This is a good exercise for me, as it reminds me that patience is a very big part of a designers skill set. Trying to present options, and explaining what they involve in terms of cost of time and money. We all have wants, needs and desires. However, I have always known that the most successful projects have been when I have delivered a final project that fulfills the needs first, and then hopefully most of the wants and desires, exceeding my clients expectations.
Now, I am my own client! We will be doing the demo next week. I have already taken down all of the wall accessories and most of the tabletop and small pieces have been removed. They certainly do make a difference in making a house a home.
But, as you can see, I have made an inspiration board, collected pictures, and am narrowing my options. My must haves are being priced.
I will keep you posted!
