For both kitchen and bathroom remodeling, you will do very well to bring in a few professionals to help. You will need an excellent draft person to help you put your thought picture for both spaces on paper in a way that is understandable to other technical people. You may also need an electrician to redo the wiring so that all electrical appliances in the kitchen and bathroom can get the power they need to work.
This is especially important if you are going to bring a jacuzzi bath into the bathroom to replace the old tub that you have decided to get rid of. You will undoubtedly require input from a plumber because of the many plumbing fittings that you will be dealing with in both spaces. And the list goes on and on.
I don't know what you thought about remodeling bathrooms and kitchens, but you have to sit down now and start planning again. The kitchen may need a new floor and the bathroom a new john; you may want to repaint the toilet while you get a new fireplace and counter tops for the kitchen. These are all factors that you will need to add to your rebuilding plan.
When planning, you will do well to come up with a financial plan for how you will be able to afford to buy what to buy and pay who needs to be paid for the entire process. If you think it is too expensive for you right now, you can decide to move on with the project by cutting down some of the appliances.
Otherwise, you can plan the assignment for another day and start saving for it. I personally would not recommend that you take out a loan for remodeling kitchens and bathrooms, but if it means so much to you, you go first. Just remember this: that you will never achieve any kind of home improvement without a plan and a budget, and they are not necessarily the same thing.
