Knowing Your Needs
Doing a Kitchen can be like a journey: For some it's just a short trip. For most, the time spent deciding, budgeting, Planning, pricing, and choosing colors may add up to a few weeks or months. For others, it may be a future event, perhaps a year or two down the road.
Creating a file of photos, magazine clippings, and brochures will help you keep your wish list organized.
