Will I regret a small kitchen (resale, Joneses, etc.)?
Am I going to regret remodeling my small galley kitchen instead of making a new big one in an addition? As the other homes in my neighborhood are updated, the kitchens are growing. The galley of the '50s is dying, and while I like it just fine, I suppose it could affect resale potential.
Do I need to keep up with the Joneses, or at least with my subdivision? I'm pretty much planning an outdated kitchen--nobody puts narrow galleys in the burbs these days, right?
(This is what happens when I visit other homes in my neighborhood. It's not kitchen envy so much as a nagging feeling I'm killing the value of my home by not accommodating modern kitchen lovin'.)
