A DIY kitchen design and remodeling project might be the perfect answer. You don't need to be a master carpenter or interior designer to do a kitchen makeover that is nothing short of stunning. If you properly organize your DIY kitchen design and remodeling project, you can break your kitchen makeover into several chunks, done over a period of time. You won't even need to take out a loan. Now we're talking.
Keeping people out of the kitchen is very easy to do in your design, just make it difficult for them to get in. Use a wrapping countertop with just one (1) countertop opening into the kitchen, and locate that opening in the most difficult spot to enter the kitchen. This, along with the \"open floor plan\" is the most effective way to prevent unwanted kitchen traffic. The single kitchen entrance will psychologically keep them out of the kitchen zone, while the open floor plan (no walls) allows you to communicate with family and guests, while keeping them out of the kitchen.
Let's say you've got your heart set on new paint and flooring, matching appliance covers, new cabinet facings and counter top coverings, track lighting, an island and a window greenhouse. Wow! Now that's a brand new kitchen. Sounds ambitious. Now let's break this makeover down into separate projects, done over a period of time. The idea is to organize each task such that your budget allows completion, while keeping your kitchen usable during that period, as much as possible.
