“Okay, honey…we agree, let’s remodel the kitchen!”
Statements like that are heard throughout the Eastern Hills more than any of us can imagine. Here’s what else we don’t know and only you can answer for yourself: is it an impulsive decision to plow into a project or has it followed a very careful and meticulous planning process?
For your sake, we hope it’s the latter. Otherwise you could be looking at cost overruns, decisions you’ll live to regret, and things you wish you had factored into the newly remodeled kitchen (or whatever room or space you’re tackling).
To help you avoid the heartache and added expense of a home remodel gone wrong, here are some questions to ask yourself before you delve too far into the process.

Freeing up more space in a small bathroom can be like trying a size 7 shoe when you’re really a size 10. In most cases, it’s not going to work.
Among the challenges: configuring the toilet and sink to code, allowing enough clearance for a shower and, of course, where to put the towels toothpaste, hair pins, and all the rest.
If adding a new bathroom is out of the question, here’s how to gain more usable space from the one you already have.
Use a shower curtain. A shower curtain that moves back and forth saves space over a glass door that moves in and out.
Float the vanity. Besides helping the bathroom appear bigger, mounting a vanity above the floor frees up some space for small items.
Round the vanity. Tight spaces can turn sharp corners into “hip hazards”. If the corners of a new vanity would get in the way, opt for a rounded style, even in square space.
Extend the counter over the toilet. This can be done with stone or a wood slab. The extended counter creates just enough space for a few needed items. Toilet placement is not affected, and the look is minimalist and clean.
Install a trough sink. The narrow, clean styling of a trough sink is a good-looking space solution. Trough sinks have a low profile. When wall mounted, they free up floor space for added storage or improved foot traffic. Use wall-mounted taps with your trough sink and gain even more floor space.
