I am a local kitchen/bath cabinetry designer in the Metro Detroit area. Since the housing market has kerplunked a bit, a lot of my clients are leary to update their kitchen and bath.

So, my advice...IF you are planning on staying for more than 3 years, why not reap the benefits of actually ENJOYING your new kitchen or bath. Do not remodel for someone else...do it for yourself. Your home is your haven and in these times, isn't it nice to come home and be proud of your surroundings. Now I realize that money can be tight...we work with a lot of professional and licensed builders/contractors that work very close within your specific budget. A new kitchen does not have to cost a fortune. By being honest with what you can afford, we can design a space for you!!

Your house doesn't have to be put 'on hold' ....it should be treated as the most important investment you have. We have many wonderful clients in the area that are enjoying their new kitchens, and are now choosing to entertain IN their home versus eating out!

Just my thoughts..from a positive side.

Hey Kristen,
What do you think about all the new laws? I just got done yesterday with the Prelicensing Classes that cost $750.00 for 4 weeks and they also have made the fines that will hurt if you get caught working without a License $5,000 to $25,000 for the First time and if you get caught a second time you go to Prison for 2 to 5 years
I know once the Lawyers get wind of the money they can make off of contractors who work without a license the poop is going to hit the fan.
