Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Tips for This Year

Looking to cost a recent kitchen remodel in your home? Never put a price on your happiness… unless money is no object, it just won’t happen. Some friends of ours were cleaning out their kitchen and wanted to include the bath so that it became one – one – kitchen and bath. It sounds kind of like a triple combo Jacuzzi. Our friend spent an addition amount of money on this ‘dream’ remodel and it did not go as planned. Golden shower, here we come!

We spent lots of time researching and debating various ideas that we decided would go along nicely with the house… mostly because some other homes they saw on a lot of property that was for sale did not have a shower so suddenly my idea of a king shower together for the whole house only had to be replaced by two smaller sized showers.

We really did not want to see our dream kitchen remodeled, as our friend’s mindset was to add additional rooms and up-grade the house. My husband suggested adding a pantry with a small sink for the dish washing as well as bar stools and a greasy kitchen counter in the breakfast nook to sit around. So while we did however, agree to supply our contractor with the marble counter top, which was the deciding factor in our remodeling costs, we still have not decided if the counters will be fabricated or fabricated with a sheet of 1,500 pale ice inlay.
