Finding what makes you "happy"
When you need to buy a dress, You go to the store, you pick out what you like, and you try it on. You go home with the dress that makes you happy. The one that highlights things you love about your body, and/or minimizes the things your not 100% confident about. Its a dress that results in your shoulders back, head held high, and you.. well, glow. Happiness.
Why cant it be that way about Kitchen Design/remodeling?
I have been racking my brain for MONTHS about how to best utilize my space, and how to be practical- to do what should be done to make the kitchen the most functional and make it some place that I like to be in! (I am a mom of 4, and a home gardener/canner- so I spend a LOT of time in there) I want something in the home thats reflective of what I like.
I know that sounds some what silly- but I can not imagine that I am the only person who has experienced this. Ive stopped moving forward because Ive been discouraged, and now unsure of what I actually like, and what I actually want. And the super practical mom in me is always nagging about "how to do it cost effectively".
SO, how do you come back from the standstill of uncertainty? Is it better to be practical, and comprise on what you want? How do you narrow down what you actually wanted?
In case someone is curious- here are the links of kitchens I like and the mixed bag of designs:
and of course, white uppers, with espresso lowers.
Any idea if a happy medium can be found?
