Victorian remodel, kitchen of my dreams, sort of...
I laugh when I watch the shows where they spend 60K remodeling the kitchens. Mine was a complete tear out, including taking down a bearing wall, and taking the floor to the joists, and my total spent was less than 20K. A lot of what I added to the kitchen came from Ebay, because I'm a junkie for a good deal, AND I was able to save substantial money and still have everything I wanted. Fixtures, faucets, sinks and cabinets, as well as my supplier for infloor radiant heating, and tile backsplash tiles...nothing retail :) Here's a few before and after shots...

Jeanette S on Aug 08, 2012I appreciate it when I see a sensible redo! With home prices falling everywhere, I do not see how people can justify spending so much money on redos...most of which I see are not needed! I am just thankful that upon retirement, our house is paid for! It is certainly not the fanciest one in town, but it works for us. Just the upkeep runs us thousands every time something goes wrong! Gee!
OhSally on Jun 15, 2015I think some of those over the top redos must be paid for by the TV show cause there can't possibly be that many people willing or able to do $100_000 + remodels on just one room. I remember on one HGTV show a couple years ago this young family paid $35,000 for an inlaid design on their kitchen floor. That just makes me think they mudt be up to their eyeballs in debt trying to keep up with the Jones'. Guess I am cynical.
