Is It Really Better To Look Good Than To Live Good?

Maybe you remember him, maybe you don’t – Fernando Lamas. Brought to life on Saturday Night Live by comedian Billy Crystal, his token phrase was “You look mahvelous… it’s better to look good than feel good.

What do you do when it comes to remodeling or redesigning your kitchen? In this digital age of television and the World Wide Web, we are constantly reminded of the kitchen being the gathering place in the home. Think of how many kitchens you’ve seen on TV, in magazines or in online ads or DIY (do it yourself) websites and segments. Have you ever found yourself thinking, “Wow! I would love to have that kitchen,” because you fell in love with the look of it?

To go back to Fernando’s slogan, let the question be this: is it really better to look good than to live good? In the case of kitchen design, we can equate this concept to beauty versus function.

  • Will having a beautiful kitchen always allow you to live good?
  • Would you rather have a beautiful kitchen that forfeits some functionality and may be potentially hazardous to live with?

There are lots of design concepts that can balance both beauty and function, but others can be down-right dangerous.

Paul McAlary, kitchen industry professional, describes different scenarios and accidents waiting to happen in his article, Death by Kitchen Design. Read his post on the daily5remodel.com blog and educate yourself on potential kitchen dangers before you delve into your own remodeling project.
