Updating a 1950s kitchen
They came up with many more, terrific tips on things to consider when you’re considering a remodel.
My kitchen is dark to begin with, and after repainting everything else in the kitchen they continued to keep it feeling like it was dark and never going to have a clean look.Even if you plan to live with things a while, get qualified and licensed professionals to look over your infrastructure (plumbing, electrical, etc.) to alert you of hazards as well as things that will need to be brought up to code. I had a friend who lived in a 1 bedroom 1920s bungalow that had so much smart storage (original to the house) it was unbelievable.Those things can affect the changes you make (and the cost) and you should know those things up front, particularly if you do need to go ahead and fix something. You can get ideas for built-ins that will help you work with small spaces.This means that a professional came in to evaluate insulation, carbon monoxide, proper venting in the kitchen, bath, and laundry room, etc.
I would definitely recommend one of these to ANY new homeowner.
