My great friend Kelly Morrisseau is researching a new book and a new website she's launching this summer and Kelly needs your help.
Yes, this is for my book, but also for my new website coming this summer. (Didn’t know I was going to have a new website? Now you do. *grin*)So please consider heading over to Kelly's blog, Kitchen Sync, and letting her know what you think. Thanks.
For those of you contemplating a kitchen and bath, I’ve got a couple of questions:
I’ve got a core go-to group that I’ve asked, and now I want to ask you. Some of their responses have been:
- If you’re just starting out, what do you want to know? What's overwhelming?
- For those already into the process, what do you wish you’d known at the beginning?
- For those of you who've finished, what do you wish you could tell your beginning self?
Okay, I condensed the last one from about 15 identical responses and gave it my own twist. I think that title’s going in my book, right along with a chapter called “Faucet Wedgies, and Other Plumbing Mistakes.”
- Where do I start?
- Where can I get the most bang for my buck (and how do I compromise without damage?)
- How do I get past looks and hype to the reality?
- How do I get the Taj Mahal on a suburban budget?
Yeeeesss, I could have said something about how the restaurant-style sinks and faucets don’t always fit in a regular counter depth, but why? (If you think this is going to be a serious book, you might want to move along. I think we should have some amusement with our information, no?)
I’m finding my experience a hindrance: what I think everybody knows, they don’t. I’m too far along to see what you need.
I'm going to leave this at the top of my blog for the next few weeks. Help, please.
