There are lots of decisions to be made before remodeling can even start: cabinet style, wood and color, floor color, material and size, and countertop material and color to name just a few. Then, the step that no one talks about....unloading the cabinets so they can be torn out. Our house looks like the kitchen vomited out utensils, plates and pot lids in heaves. Perhaps I'll photograph that tomorrow.
For now, here's the kitchen, ready to be torn out. (The appliances are new. We made all those decisions last year and they stay.)
