There is laundry, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning and packing EV.ER.Y.THING., including the kitchen sink and that's before you even head out the door. It's like moving just for a four day trip. See...WORKATION!!!
Speaking of kitchen sinks though, I spotted an E-article about kitchen remodels this morning that I think you all might be interested in reading. Well that is if you are planning a little kitchen remodeling in your future. If you are already in the process of a major kitchen remodel this is a must read!!! You might find out that some of the "now" things that you are considering for your remodel are not your best choices and why. The title...
Some of the now things YOU SHOULD CONSIDER are:
--Large base kitchen drawers to house small appliances, pots, pans and cleaning supplies. It keeps them easily accessible.
--Under the counter microwave. Microwaves mounted above the stove are not easily accessible and cause more burns from spills.
--Stainless steel appliances and sink. They are timeless and will not become outdated quickly.
--Natural stone countertops such as quartz and granite. They also are timeless and will not quickly become outdated.
Some of the now things YOU SHOULD AVOID are:
--Large custom built range hoods.
--Full wall, under cabinet backsplashes. You only need a 4-6 inch backsplash. Anything more is a waste of money and will be out of date within the next few years.
--Appliance garages. These are already out of date.
--Farmhouse apron sinks. These are quickly becoming outdated.
--Built in desk area and phone niches. These are already out of date.
With all that said, kitchen remodels are incredibly expensive so it's important that you make wise decisions as to where and how you spend all that money. You definitely do not want to be spending money on things that are going to be considered outdated or out of style within a year or two after your remodel.
The above linked article could help you to make the right decisions now so that you end up with a timeless, classic kitchen that is enjoyable and beautiful for years to come. It's well worth the read! ENJOY!
Well, I'm outta here. Getting ready for my workation. Hope you all have a fantastic and relaxing weekend. Ciao!!!
