Trite but true – I’ve seen many beautiful spaces, but what’s the point of going through all the effort of planning the pretty cabinets and new fixtures if the kitchen doesn’t flow the way you do? Why bother living through the confusion of a remodel if it’s still frustrating to live with when the contractors are packed up and finished? Going through a slew of good questions in advance of design is so critical to your kitchen remodel. So, SLOW DOWN. We live in a world of immediate gratification and quick responses, but trust me when I say, DO NOT RUSH your planning stages. When you are finished, you will be so glad you took the time to ponder, discuss and debate all the details down to where your tuppeware will be stored.
