Are you going for an antique or nostalgic look and feel in your kitchen? If so, consider creating a traditional atmosphere with reclaimed would flooring. Obtaining reconditioned wood that has been removed from another home that has been prepared for installation can generate an extremely unique, rustic feel that may be just the atmosphere you are after.
Before beginning your project (or allowing anyone else to start), be sure you have all the materials needed to kick off the renovation. Whether it is electrical supplies, cabinets, flooring, paint, counters, appliances, paint, etc. Be sure you have all the necessary materials prior to the remodeling project.
