Most homeowners who are renovating their new kitchen probably look first at replacing their cabinets. After all, it’s the cabinets that take the most wear and tear, especially if you have a big family.
Floors are usually the next thing to be replaced. After all, they will have to match the new cabinets. Plus, if you are ripping everything out, there’s a good chance your old floors will look even older once you are done.
But when it comes to appliances, a lot of homeowners will keep their existing stoves, refrigerators, and dishwashers.
