Some people think of home renovation as a hobby and some take it as a mandatory action only when something is broken and do not cater to Home décor trending now. This was the scenario when my father in law fell in love with kitchen renovation magazines and decided that his kitchen needs a makeover. However, once he sat down with a calculator, it dawned on him that a magazine like renovation is out of his reach.
Therefore, he called me in on the plan and I helped him research the possibilities by which he could remodel his kitchen and not get in any financial trouble. I already had the experience since I had selected the perfect appliance suite for my mother. We ended getting only 5 items from Amazon which did the trick. I also felt it as my obligatory duty to tell you folks about how we did it and which products bailed us out from a situation where we would have gone for a home renovation loan. Let us walk through the methodology we adopted before spending the first dollar:-
The first and most important phase was chalking everything down on a piece of paper. This included the idea of a dream kitchen he had along with the type of items he would require to convert his dream into a reality.
The next step was calculating the money that he needed for his dream. Once the calculation was done, we found that we could not afford a fully automated lighting system in the kitchen so we course-corrected our plan according to the money allocated by my father in law. We then researched the items that fell in the overall budget cap and moved forward.
This was the easy part of going online and purchasing from Amazon is a piece of cake. Most of the items arrived within a week after which we did a construction plan. This plan included the methodology of installation and the flow of events that we needed to carry out.
Execution of the construction flow chart was the final part of the dream run of my father in law. I must say that I was extremely happy in helping someone achieving a dream, even if it was a small one. All the things ordered were self-help installation fixtures and therefore, it did not take us much time to get everythinginstalled and working.
Now, let me walk you through the wining 5 products that my Father in Law picked to decorate his dream kitchen:-
