One of the great things about being a homeowner is the fun and excitement of being able to make the house yours. We are talking far beyond just decor, but the moment when you get to remodel a room that you’ve spent years dreaming about. At least that’s how I felt when we moved into our home and I started my plans for our kitchen remodel. My husband is quite a handy person, so we thought that we could do a lot of work on our own and just bang out the project quickly. Boy was I wrong!
We assumed we could knock this project out over a long weekend – since we didn’t have to move or deal with any electrical projects, we figured we were on the highway to a new kitchen in 3 days or less. What started as a 3 day project turned into a 30 day project – and me doing dishes in our bathtub. No matter how handy you are, or what a great jack-of-all-trades that your husband is, when you are working on a big project something is bound to go wrong.

I was super impressed with the Florida beach kitchen remodel they assisted their client with. I was able to get a sneak peek at her new cabinetry and I can say I was super impressed. Cliqstudios.com really delivered!
Great tips. Lucky for me, when we moved into our home, the people who owned it before us bought it just to fix it up and flip it, so everything was newly done when we got it.
that is a great looking kitchen. I think I’d like to go white next time too
You’ve really got to plan ahead on any remodel. If you don’t, you’ll end up with a major headache. This best tip on here is getting the proper permits. They’ll shut you down fast if you don’t have those.
Excellent tips. We’re due for a kitchen remodel and even though the space is small, I’m afraid it’s going to take forever and cost a fortune.
I can’t wait until we get a new home and I can decorate the kitchen how I want it.
we always say, measure twice, cut once. and don’t skimp on materials.
Planning your budget is so important. There’s nothing like getting halfway through a project and running out of money for it.
These are great tips. You’ve got to be so careful when you remodel. Townships have so many permit requirements now, and they’ll shut you down in a snap if you don’t follow them all.
I forsee a kitchen remodel in our future in the next 5 years. We have things that are in worse shape but the kitchen will come eventually.
We re-did our kitchen last year at this time. It took 3 weeks longer than expected, which wreaked havoc on our budget since we had to continually eat out or get take out!
That looks great. I wish we could redo our kitchen, but we have some other things to get done first. My husband is very handy, so it’s just a matter of time, but eventually. I hate my current countertops. The counters in the photo you posted look great.
Thanks for the tips! I would love to remodel my kitchen but I think that’s going to be a while.
Having a budget is so important. That stuff adds up quick!
Ooh, she’s got a pretty kitchen! I had friends get divorced after a kitchen remodel. I bet they wish they’d had these tips!
Thanks for the tips. We did a remodel a few years ago. It’s always more work than you think 🙂
These are great tips! My parents just remodeled their kitchen and OMG it was a lot of work. It was also a HUGE expense, but it looks amazing.
I was a kitchen and bath designer for over 16 years and I can say, these tips are so so IMPORTANT! Remodeling your kitchen or bath is a huge project and my biggest piece of advice is be informed. Know what to expect at every stage and find a designer and contractor who will communicate with you along the way!
Thank you for sharing these tips! I want to remodel my kitchen so badly, I hardly have any space and my cabinets are from the 50’s!
These are great tips to think about. I would love to remodel our home, especially the kitchen some day! Will be sure to remember these tips.
Faulty measurements is the worst!!! Not that I’ve done that or anything… *sigh* 🙂
Good info. I really would like to do my kitchen.
This is a dream kitchen! With as much cooking as I do, I would be afraid I would get those pristine white cabinets dirty constantly. We just built a home and chose darker colors for exactly that reason.
These are some really great tips! We want to renovate our kitchen in the next couple of years, so I will keep these in mind.
I would love to redo our kitchen! Great tips about remodeling!
Great tips! Love all that white cabinetry. Beautiful!
Great tips. I’d love to re-do our kitchen and lighten it up a bit.
Wow that kitchen turned out great! I wish we were more organized when we did our remodel. It was a mess!
These are really great tips to think about. The kitchen turned out amazing.
I would love to remodel the kitchen I have here, but I am renting an apartment. These are all important things to remember.
