Think of a kitchen remodel the same way you would think about partaking in a weight loss program: no matter what anyone tells you, it's not happening overnight. Your patience will be tested; you'll consider cutting corners that aren't worth cutting. Weeks will go by where it seems like no progress is being made. You will find yourself missing things you never gave two thoughts to in the past.
Of course, when you've endured and survived the many weeks it will take to reach your goal, your friends, family and neighbors will be unbelievably impressed with the new look. This section does not promise to have all the answers. Still, it will try to prepare you and help you keep your life together while taking your contemporary kitchen apart.
