Alison Victoria of DIY Network's "Kitchen Crashers" was asked by the Washington Post on Jan. 17 what tips she had for the Home + Remodeling Show attendees this weekend at the Dulles Expo Center. And her helpful tips can also guide the winner of the PCH Dream Kitchen sweepstakes giveaway No. 3726, since that person will have $75,000 to use to make their existing kitchen even better.
Victoria says that when you are building your dream kitchen or remodeling the one you have, make the kitchen as large as you want it.
Everyone says they don't have enough room!" based on the DIY Network expert. So if you have the chance to make your kitchen large, do it.
With $75,000 the Publishers Clearing House Dream Kitchen winner could expand their kitchen if they wanted to, in addition to adding new appliances, cabinets, countertops and more. But what about the family that can't afford to do that? Alison has tips for them too.
It 'might mean designing up, putting in spice racks or hanging pans on walls," in order to best use the limited space they have, Alison says.
PCH is running another kitchen giveaway right now in addition to their $75,000 dream kitchen giveaway. And this other giveaway is called the $25,000 PCH Kitchen Makeover prize, which is also under their giveaway number 3726. With this smaller dollar amount giveaway the winner might be limited financially in making their kitchen bigger. But they can at least follow Alison's advice about "designing up" to increase their space.
