Bringing Kitchen Remodeling Dreams to Life - Where to Start - Part 1:
Remodeling Begins with Decisions -
The easy part, of choosing your new
kitchen is picking the beautiful items, from the wood of the
cabinets to countertops, backsplashes and lighting fixtures, and
that so called easy part is quite difficult. The hardest part of
your kitchen remodel is deciding what will go where. Before you head
out to look at granite or brush your hand across shiny stainless
steel appliances, put pen to paper to figure out what your kitchen really needs.

again around the cabinets, or hang new light fixtures, but over the cabinets. No matter if your kitchen remodel is small or large; cabinets have to be front
and center in decision making. The cost of cabinets will likely weigh heavily in any remodel.
According to HGTV.com, expect your cabinets to be 35 percent of the cost of any remodel.
