No matter what type of renovation a homeowner is doing, it is complicated, but kitchen renovations tend to be even more frustrating and expensive. This is partly because kitchen renovations are not just about the look of the space, but it involves many large appliances as well. One way to make things easier is to plan ahead. Another is for people to look at their current kitchen and see what really needs to be done – if there are things you like, or that still work, like windows, they don’t need to be replaced.

Key Takeaways:

  • While some people move to other places during renovations, with some planning, you can stay in your home space.
  • When planning for a kitchen renovation, you should look at your current kitchen in terms of things you don’t like, but also in terms of the things you like.
  • Windows don’t necessarily need to be replaced when you are renovating your kitchen.
