What order should I do these things?
My home is 20 years old and really dated. I am not making any structural changes, but want to replace/redo many things. I was wondering what order I should do the following so all my colors will be co-ordinated:
Replace carpet with laminate or tile that looks like wood
(depending on cost)
Paint the oak cabinets a lighter shade (not white) while minimizing the oak grain.
Replace laminate counter top with silestone and get new back splash
Replace sink and stove
Put in recessed lighting in kitchen
Paint the house
Tile upstairs bathroom
Get window coverings
I don't know if I should do the flooring and then have counters and cupboards go with the flooring. Or do I start with cupboards and have flooring look good with them? I am terrible and decorating. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you
