Anyone who's ever sought guidance in renovating a home knows that living through it requires an athlete's discipline for keeping your eye on the prize! To say home renovations are challenging is an understatement, but people grit their teeth and do them because their dream of a spa bathroom, a gourmet-quality chef's kitchen or simply a better functioning room is ultimately more important to them than the inevitable chaos the renovation process can - and more often than not - causes. It's important to know that feelings of frustration, impatience or exasperation are common, and one of the cures is the ability to step back for a moment now and then to look for the humor in your current situation.
With that in mind, we've compiled a little list of the greatest home renovation quotes you've ever heard to keep things in perspective and interject a little levity into what is often a stressful experience. So make yourself a cup of coffee or tea, put your feet up (if you can find a place to sit!), and get ready to relate. Then, take a deep breath and keep working toward your home renovation goal, whatever it may be!
"Living through a home renovation is like living in the wild ... You do whatever it takes to survive."
"A kitchen renovation is sometimes like a bad boyfriend. You can't always get what you want."
-Erin McLaughlin (Editor in Chief, Style at Home)
"There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs."
-Zig Ziglar (American Author)
"Either you WAKE UP and start working for it, or let it STAY A DREAM."
