How to Design Your Kitchen Remodel – Sarah Karakaian

Sarah joins our show to discuss an integral step in everyone's kitchen remodeling journey: Planning.

I know, I know..... it's not a super sexy topic. But it is THE most important part of a successful kitchen remodel.

A goal without a plan is just a dream. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Success doesn't just happen, it's planned for.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah.....can't we just get started and figure it out as we go". NOOOOO!!

Sarah knows how to plan. She dreams of a world where there is a place for everything and everything has a place.

You may have seen her on HGTV's Beach Flip where she and her handy husband Nick remodeled a beach house together.

Sarah loves creating beautifully design spaces for her clients. But she knows that planning and determining the entire scope of the project is essential.

"If YOU spent more time finding the right professionals, YOU would be happier at the end of your kitchen reno."

In this episode, you'll discover:

  • How to determine the entire scope of your project
  • How to find a good contractor and sub-contractors
  • Where you can stretch the budget
  • One BIG mistake your don't want to make
  • The most current online and offline resources

I hope you enjoy this fun conversation I had with Sarah Karakaian from Nestrs.
