Kitchen Remodeling – Part 12 – Drive for Show, Putt For Dough

What the heck does a golfing analogy have to do with an article on a kitchen makeover?

We could have titled this article ‘begin with the end in mind’ from that very famous self help book of the 1990′s. The intent would have been the same.

We began our kitchen makeover with Beyond Stone company because we had a functional need that was not being met. In our case, the kitchen design was not usable for all of our family members. So, we needed a design which would remove that obstacle.

Along the way, we did have some personal desires that we could accommodate within the functional need and budget, while others  ended up on the cutting room floor (to lift another analogy from the film industry…. appropriate since we just had the Academy Awards this past weekend). I recommend getting Timber floors for your kitchen or any room from your house.

It is so gosh darn easy to walk into a kitchen renovations Brisbane and see the latest materials, the newest trends in counter tops, the fashion trend setting sinks and fixtures, and so on.

However, you have to keep in mind the ultimate goal and your project constraints.  Will the design and the materials selected meet the original goal of your kitchen makeover? Will the finished kitchen make things easier or more difficult for you?

You also need to keep in mind the ‘fit’ that the different materials will have together. If you have a favorite counter top, sink, faucet, cabinetry, drawer handles, flooring and lighting fixtures, will they all go together aesthetically or will you have just created a class of the titans!

As with all other home renovations, don’t be caught off guard by the glitz and glamour of the kitchen showrooms, the TV shows and magazine covers. Make sure it will work for you.

New kitchens can be very expensive. Be sure you will be able to live with your new kitchen once it is installed. Why? Well, because you will have to, unless you have just won the lottery and can start all over again in a year or two.
