Big hair – can you say aqua net, Boom boxes, Parachute pants, Cabbage patch kids, Jelly shoes, Nintendo, the Mullet, denim jackets and everything in site was golden oak. Oh how we thought it was cool. Following trends can be fun but when it comes to your home trend lightly.
The cost of a kitchen remodel can run anywhere from $20k to upwards of $80k depending on the quality of products you choose and the scale of your project. Most people will only remodel their kitchen once in a lifetime. That said choose carefully –
Ladies, use the same thought process you do when buying clothes. Classic pieces that will never go out of style are ok to spend more money on, you want them to last and don’t want to have to buy them again and again. The more on trend pieces you buy at a value because you’ll be lucky to get two seasons out of them and longevity isn’t a concern.
Think of your kitchen in the same way, choose classic cabinetry for the main part of your kitchen and counter tops that will stand the test of time. If you are loving some of what’s trending at the time showcase it in an island or back splash. It will make a big statement for now but won’t break the bank to replace in 5 years if you hate it.
