Define the big picture
Approximately 60 percent of kitchen remodels involve changing the footprint of the kitchen. If you might be in that majority, then we urge you to spend dedicated time upfront to thoroughly define
your project. Do you want to renovate one or more existing rooms? Move walls? Add on? Are you tackling a full re-model or just upgrading a few things? This is a good time to determine your resources
and establish how much you're willing to spend. For a large project, you'll want to explore options for at least 4 weeks, but smaller projects, like a bathroom, can be defined in a week's time.
