Kitchen Remodel

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!


  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation
    but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
