Do some homework and check out online and retail store pricing. And choose retail stores where you can see what your buying and visit with their well-informed salespeople. For example, here in San Antonio there is a Ferguson’s showroom, Expressions Home Gallery and Factory Builder Supply-all extremely knowledgeable about their products.
The third step is to list everything you would love to have and that would make your spaces more functional. Kitchen and bath styles come and go over the years and the appliances are certainly high tech these days. Some you will love. Some will fit your budget. Some will fit your space. Some will help you save time. Some will be beautiful and bring you joy. CHOOSE THOSE!!!!!!
