Kitchen & Bath Insider #206: You Can Afford a New Kitchen With Chocolate Bit-Coin!

By Paul Bookbinder, M.I.D., C.R.

 

With the world turned on it’s head, I’ve devised a new monetary system called “chocolate bit-coin”. Easily baked by yourself using our simple, “chocolate bit-coin” system, that comes with our ultra-secret, proprietary recipe, you can now bake your own “chocolate bit-coin” and use it for purchases at remodeling establishments that accept such type of cook-to-currency. All for only $5,000!

 

Whether you’re walking down the street, passing by a showroom, or in a “home center” strolling the isles, you can’t help but notice the stunning new kitchens on display. You work hard. You’re a good person. If anyone deserves a new kitchen, it’s you! But how could you possibly afford such luxury? It’s easy! Just send us $10,000 for your very own “chocolate bit-coin” baking kit (and proprietary recipe) and pretty soon you’ll have enough “chocolate bit-coin” to afford anything you desire.

 

Picture the pleasant vision of standing in your new kitchen, effortlessly preparing a gourmet meal instead of looking out from the poor house. Rather than walking on, regrettably abandoning the momentary dream of what you truly deserve, act now. Just send us $15,000 for your personal money making machine.

 

But if you’re not into risk-taking and you’re still inspired by those beautiful displays, there are steps to follow that can lead to a new kitchen without sacrificing everything you hold dear. The most important of these steps is to determine the budget that you are comfortable with, AND THEN STICKING TO IT! Today, there are kitchen solutions including new cabinets or refacing, as well as counter tops and appliances that will fit into almost any budget. The trick is to figure out what your budget really is, and then finding what options that will fit within that figure.

 

While determining your budget, it’s a good time to do your homework. Make one list of what you absolutely must have in your future kitchen and another “wish list” of things you’d like, but really could live without if necessary. Browse websites like houzz and pinterest and when you see something that interests you, save it into a folder so that you can show it to your designer. It’s always easier and safer to show someone a picture rather than trying to explain it, leaving less chance for misinterpretation of what you had in mind.

 

With budget in hand, it’s time to visit with a kitchen designer, who will work with you to create your “Dream Kitchen”, at a price that you can afford. They will review your ideas and then transform them into a working design. Don’t be afraid to share your budget with your designer. Whether your proposed expenditure is $5,000 or $100,000, if the designer does not know this, chances are their plan will not meet your expectations and you’ll have wasted both your time and theirs.

 

A creative designer, whom you’ve shared your “wish list” and other desires, should be able to create an affordable, functional, and stunning new kitchen, just for you. Unless money is not an object you may have to compromise here and there, but the end result will be something that you can not only afford, but be proud of as well.

Or, if you’re ready to take the plunge and invest in our $20,000 “chocolate bit-con” (whoops, that’s bit-coin) baking kit just send us $25,000 and you too could be baking your very own “chocolate bit-coin”, the currency of the future.
