Happy New Year!
This past week marked my 9 year anniversary running Decor by Christine! Yay Me! And in my experience the new year = new renovation. After the holidays many people determine that they need a new kitchen, dining room or living room after entertaining guests. And one of the biggest inquiries I get in the new year is about renovating their kitchen.
Things to Consider or Think about Before Starting a Kitchen Renovation
In the latest issue of Canadian Home Trends Magazine (a national publication) — see cover below — the magazine features 25+ dream kitchen, dining rooms and bathroom ideas.
And in case you weren’t aware, I also write an interior design column in each issue of this magazine. For this issue I wrote about what to think about before beginning a kitchen renovation. Here it is as it appeared in the magazine.
A Kitchen Renovation Doesn’t have to be a Full Gut!
If your kitchen has good bones already (ie: good quality cabinets) or you are thinking of moving in a few years than you may want to consider just cosmetic changes to update your kitchen. That could include painting out your cabinetry, new hardware or changing your backsplash. I happened to do all of this and more to update my kitchen without the full renovation budget. You can watch what I did to my kitchen in the attached video that was filmed for the Marc & Mandy Show.
(The Marc and Mandy show is a nationally broadcast show and can be seen on City TV every Saturday across Canada.)
I hope you found both the article and video helpful if you are considering a kitchen renovation or a facelift.
