Ever notice that your needs and wants often collide? That’s because we define “wants” as luxuries and “needs” as necessities. Yet, we also claim to “need” things such as a better sound system, a larger TV and a vacation. If you’re on a budget (who isn’t these days?), luxuries (our definition of our wants) are classified as extravagances.
But, what good is it to work hard if you never have these extravagances? In other words, if you want an amazing kitchen, you just have to figure out how. And, its not all about the money. This website is full of tips and ideas designed to get the biggest bang for your buck. So, consider scrimping here in order to splurge there.
For example, you have a guest bath built in the ’70’s and it looks it. Would a new “wild” sink/vanity change that? Or a tile floor and tile tub surround? The rest of the remodel could simply be paint … and maybe a large, used mirror. In a weekend, and for only a few hundred dollars, you could have a guest bath that looks like it cost thousands, a new tile floor in the kitchen or (if you find a close-out sale) a marble fireplace! Start thinking this way. Needs meet wants in perfect harmony. Now, on to the project!
