There is an old saying the shoemaker’s children never have shoes, which can be true in any line of work. Well now this kitchen designer finally has a kitchen she is proud to show off. After designing kitchens for clients for nearly 10 years, I decided it was my turn and I put my young family into renovation central as we undertook our main floor renovation.
Sometimes large projects take time to make the right decision. Four years ago, we purchased a home that had room for our family to grow. We knew we would be replacing the kitchen in a couple of years. Two kids later we decided we were ready to undertake the project.
When purchasing the home, I knew the overall layout did not need a lot of major construction. Taking down a three-foot wall, moving some plumbing and electrical made the world of difference to make the kitchen more open to the family room and maximized the space completely.
All renos have there are ups and downs, highs and lows, times where you wonder why you did this in the first place, but as the demolition zone turns into a blank canvas and then into a work of art, you know everything was all worth it. With a good plan in place and realistic time frame, it ensures that things will go as smooth as possible. Some DIY from a handy husband and father-in-law, and partnering with the expertise of TBG Enterprises, my vision for the space became a reality. We are loving our new space we can not only entertain in, it functions beautifully for our day-to-day life.
