Feb 24, 2015 4:19:00 PM

If you’re like me, it’s easy to get lost in all of those home renovation shows on HGTV and DIY Network. The kitchens are sleek and modern; the budgets are ridiculous; wall demolition looks unbelievably therapeutic; and the open floor plans are something on everyone’s must-have list.
