They provide a common language which makes for less confusion.Erwin recommends visiting sites like Houzz or Pinterest to get ideas. He also says it’s important to figure out what you like and don’t like about the space being remodeled. Are the cabinets too dark or is their wasted space?  Spend some time thinking about what you want changed a simple list of your likes and dislikes.And don’t forget about the budget. The average bathroom remodel runs around $15,000, the average kitchen remodel is $25,000.
