My Best Kitchen Renovation Advice





So I've done a lot of renovations in our home -- at least done a lot of work on our renovations. Usually I get help on the big projects but the kitchen is the biggest for me because I've done most of it myself. If we hire out help I finish up at the end with trim, painting and some electrical -- this time I'm doing way more than that.

I don't know what it is about a kitchen renovation but it's been the hardest yet! I have no doubt most will tell you the same. Maybe because we use our kitchen so much and we notice it more" When we couldn't use our family room for a few weeks last year it wasn't a big deal, we just watched TV in other spaces. Finishing our basement was a piece of cake -- we didn't use the space every day anyway so it wasn't a big deal. There is a point at the end of every project when you just want it done. :)

But the kitchen, especially when you are spacing it over a long time like me -- that takes more patience. There are a few bits of advice I can give that have probably been said a million times, but all are so true.

1. It will take longer than you think. You can plan with the best of them but that flies out the window when stuff happens. For example, the granite installers broke our countertops and it took another week to finish them up. Because we couldn't make final drywall touch ups that put us back about two weeks. There were a few other things I could do in the meantime but I had a very specific timeline for projects so it slowed me down.
I was really hoping to have the whole space done by Halloween and that's obviously not happening. Goals are good though. :) I am estimating it will be another two weeks, which makes me want to rock in a corner a little bit. But I want to do it right!
The (in between) before after the new island
2. Give up on cleaning. You know what Einstein said about insanity" Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result" That's what happens when you clean during a renovation. Ha! You do it one day and do it again the next, and again. And again. And then you decide that spacing that out to every few days saves your sanity a little bit.

If you're like me you kind of give up on the whole house. Our house is never clean during a major project anyway -- I can only focus on the task at hand so the rest of the house goes to crap a little bit. I don't think I'm alone in that one!
3. You'll have a love/hate relationship with the space. Some days I can barely stand it, I love how the kitchen is coming together SO MUCH. Other days I don't even want to walk in there because it means more work. ;) I shouldn't say I ever hate the space, I don't. I love the transformation. But this part of the reno is the worst -- I can see the final result finally coming together and it's so close?yet so far away. Patience! I don't have it! Of course if you are hiring out the work you may not feel this way quite as much, but you'll still get to a point when you just wa...
