When, as Maykut puts it, "you hate everything from the counters to the floor," renovation may be the only way to make the kitchen suit your taste. But going all out doesn't have to mean going overboard. "It's often cheaper to gut a kitchen than to work around existing elements," Makyut explains. Before committing to a new look, you'll need to weigh a dizzying array of options. One advantage of working with a company like Sears Home Services is that, rather than sending you to the showroom, Sears "brings the showroom to you." That way, you can be sure that you're making the right selections for your space.
