COMMON MISTAKES MAY BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR COMFORT AND BUDGET
Here is the common reasoning to avoid:
I have a tract house
My kitchen is ratty
I need to fix it up for re-sale value I go to Home Depot or MFI I look at new appliances I look at new cabinets A saleman shows me a CAD design of new cabinets to replace the old ones with same size and same placement I agree to spend $10,000 My life is no better Nor is my kitchen, except that it is cleaner
A lot of money is spent but not on the things that could really make a difference. People do not know, that they can move sinks and plumbing with only a small cost. People do not know that they can move doors, change and enlarge windows, for relatively small costs. These expenditures will often bring you much more comfort than a new appliance or fancier cabinets.Consider the kitchen as a place you want to spend time, bring in the light you need and a comfortable place to sit and work. It is a no brainer for a salesman to sell replacement cabinets, so get the professionals to really work with you in making your kitchen TRULY comfortable.
