This summer we are undertaking a remodel in our house.
We moved into a 1930 home with a lot of character but needed a lot of work.
We intended to fix it immediately when we moved in.
But having a younger boy, that at times, would write on walls with markers and other mischievous stuff, we decided to put a hold on it until he got a little older.
This is the summer we will move forward with that home project.
It’s an older home that has many little rooms and the kitchen needs updating badly.
We want to open up the room and will remove walls to create a more open concept.
We found a contractor that we like and he instructed us to find looks that we like and take photos of it.
Today we have Pinterest and you can find any look that you want, in a matter of minutes. We’ve been going through Pinterest and saving kitchens that we like, onto our page, and will be showing the contractor.
Also, we got a design on paper to show the contractor which walls we want taken down and the layout of the kitchen.
We have a couple of walls that we are not sure what are behind them and will be drilling holes in the wall to get a better look and try to minimize the surprises. The planning stage is important, but there comes a point, where you have to take a leap of faith and move forward with the project. Tell yourself that there will be unexpected things that pop up and know that that is part of the process.
It’s no different in dentistry.
Many people will come into our office wanting to improve something in their mouth.
Some people want nicer looking teeth, some want to be able to chew their food better, and some hate that their teeth and gums are in pain.
The key is to figure out what they want to achieve. To give us an image of what that looks like to them and then help them plan what needs to be done, in order to meet that final goal.
Getting that mental image of what they want to achieve is important. It gives us a framework and a goal.
Then getting it on paper is the next step. Creating a series of steps that need to happen, in order to achieve their goal.
And finally taking a leap of faith and get started.
It’s how we get anything done.
If you want to improve something in your mouth and would like to get a plan on how to do it, call 773-292-1911 to get a plan.
