Are you longing to remodel your kitchen, but the idea of tackling this significant undertaking scares you? Are you afraid of the stress, of mistakes, or of being able to afford it? Well, here is the good news: you don’t have to remodel everything all at once. You can remodel your kitchen one step at a time.
How does this help you? First, it allows you to get a taste of what remodeling is like. It’s like overcoming any fear; you take one step at a time toward facing it. For example, take a look at your kitchen and decide what one thing you would like to tackle first. Do you want new cabinets most? Then, do that first. It’s a single project that can change the entire look of your kitchen, but does not have to involve changing the entire kitchen.
Another benefit of doing remodeling this way is that you get to see how things look one at a time. You may have one thing changed and decide that’s all your kitchen really needed. Or, you may remodel the floors and that leads you to decide on the color for some new cabinets. You may find yourself inspired to take the kitchen in a different direction.
This is also a potential money saver. If you want to redo your entire kitchen, but you’re afraid of the expense, then try doing one thing at a time. Start with what you know you can afford. Budget, choose materials, plan, etc. As you do this, go ahead and start a larger budget for the entire kitchen. You don’t really have to plan for the whole thing, but treating the first project as part of a larger whole can help you see your future in terms of affording another remodeling later. Once the first project is complete, compare what you’ve spent to what you had in your larger budget. Adjust, and plan for the next project you’re able to afford. You may find that you’re able to do more in the near-term than you initially thought.
