It has been a crazy 8 weeks that just flew by! Deciding to take on the 8 weeks kitchen renovation challenge was not the smartest thing to do. I was too optimistic and hopeful we would be able to make it, but it just could not happen. So, here is what our kitchen looks like at the moment, but I promise I’ll update the post once we have our everything in place 🙂 The new kitchen is just around the corner!
You can renovate your kitchen in 8 weeks
If you check the One Room Challenge website and search for “kitchen renovations”, you will get many results coming up. There are many variables why this might or might not be possible. Whether it is the volume of work, budget, planning, or all of it, it is something to consider, if you want to go that route.
Kitchen renovations are one of the biggest and most expensive house projects to take upon. Our budget has increased multiple times, as it has been the craziest timing with supply challenges due to the ongoing pandemic.
We ordered our appliances a while ago, but we have gotten just a few of them: a range, range hood, and a microwave trim kit 🙂 Yup, we have no microwave yet, but we did get the trim kit.
Kitchen Renovation is a complex project
It involves a lot of work in many trades. Plumbing, electrical, flooring, and in our case, it was also replacing drywall. We have selected the stone for countertops and backsplash, but we haven’t ordered it yet, as it comes after the installation of the cabinets.
Once it is all in place, I know it will be beautiful. But now, our house has been messy and dusty. But next week, it will start to change, and I can’t wait!
Let us know if you want us to share our survival tips and ideas if you are planning on the kitchen renos 🙂 We will be happy to do that!
In the meantime, remember to visit the One Room Challenge website and check out other beautiful projects!
