Creating Your Dream Kitchen Begins With a Dream

Creating your dream kitchen begins with a dreamIn the classic movie, Field of Dreams, Kevin Kostner’s character hears a voice telling him, “If you build it, they will come!” He then goes on to build his vision—a baseball diamond in the middle of an Iowa cornfield. “They” (baseball legends from the past and baseball fans from the present) indeed come to marvel at what he built.

When it comes to remodeling the kitchen of your Gaithersburg or Darnstown home, the voice might say, “If you can dream it, you can build it!” Sometimes, however, coming up with a clear vision of what your dream kitchen should look like requires a little help.

If you present some people with a blank page, they can fill it up with ideas and images in no time. Some of us, however, need a little nudge. We know what we like when we see it, but we need a little help to get the creative juices flowing.

Help is only a click away! Houzz.com offers a ton of great ideas for remodeling your kitchen (or just about any room in your home) and turning it into the kitchen you’ve always dreamed about having (or wanted to dream about, except you had a little trouble coming up with ideas). With Houzz, you don’t just read about someone’s plans, you get to see images of how a kitchen remodeling project looks like when it’s finished. The idea isn’t to copy what someone else has done, but to collect ideas of the things you like so that you can sit down with your builder and show him specific images of what you want. That’s why Houzz lets you create your own “idea books” where you can store images and descriptions of the features you think will go together to make the perfect kitchen.

Of course creating an online “idea book” is just one step. It’s critical that you find someone who is able to take those ideas and create a design that captures those elements—and then turn them into a real kitchen. That, of course, is one of the beauties of the design/build process. The same team that commits your dream to paper is responsible for turning that plan into the dream kitchen that you’ll enjoy for years. And that’s something we’ve been pleased to do with outstanding results for years.

So head on over to Houzz and pull together some great kitchen remodeling ideas. Then contact us and we can help you turn those dreams into reality!
