GATHER IDEAS

Although this may seem like the easiest part of the project, it is unfortunately the one that most often gets the least attention. Design ideas come from a number of valuable resources such as TV shows, websites, blogs, social media, showrooms, and magazine articles. These ideas are very personal and reflect individual style and taste as well as needs and wants. Much like a snowflake, no two kitchen projects will ever have exactly the same requirements or identical layouts.

You will need to create a folder for your design ideas. This folder should contain:

  • Magazine clippings, photos from the internet, pictures and advertisements that show styles and functional elements that you like.
  • Pictures of your existing space and the rooms that lead into it.
  • Pictures of other areas of your home that are representative of your style and taste.
  • Accurate measurements of the space you need to remodel.

Our next blog post will discuss your kitchen "wants, needs, and desires".

Rob Sheets – Your Electrician

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rob began his electrical journey as an electrician in the Navy's nuclear power program. He attended electrical "A" school and Nuclear Power School in Charleston, South Carolina before joining the USS Jefferson City home ported out of San Diego, CA.

After serving 6 years in the Navy, Rob moved on to gather industrial experience in power plants, as well as the mining, oil, and natural gas industries. During this time he not only honed his technical electrical expertise, but he also became a certified fire fighter, first responder, rope and confined space rescue team member, hazmat technician, and served on various safety committees for several companies.

Along the way, Rob trained and studied in residential and commercial electrical practicum, obtaining his California journeyman's license and then his electrical contractor's license. He founded Your Electrician in 2012, choosing the name that paid homage to some sailor jokes going back to many long days on deployment onboard the USS Jefferson City.
