There’s nobody you trust more when you launch a kitchen remodeling project than your dad, right?.

His flawless taste. His epic architectural advice. His infinite knowledge of tools and techniques . . . well, maybe he’s not perfect, but having him around makes the project more interesting, right?

Whether or not you want your dad involved in your kitchen remodel, here's a few dads we’d like to have on hand for a remodel project.

Darth Vader would use the force to foresee the best trend for your new kitchen tile then make short work of the job—he owes it to Luke to do a few good turns.

We’re hoping some of Diana and Kate’s stellar taste rubbed off on Prince William. Who doesn’t want royally gorgeous floors? Or he could manage the whole project from the most comfortable seat in the house and be eye candy.

Paul McCartney. Anyone who can produce a child like Stella should get a one way “ticket to ride” to your design party.

President Obama. He said it best: “Dads are teachers and coaches. They are mentors and role models.They are examples of success and the men who constantly push us toward it.” Channel that inspiration while you remodel!

As long as Archie Manning brings Peyton and Eli you won’t have to lift a finger. Go man power! Or should we say, Manning power?

Any foodie would love to have Emeril Lagasse advising on kitchen layout and appliance selection.

Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor.  If he brings his tools and a few good laughs what could go wrong?

Steve Douglas, of My Three Sons fame, always knows just what to do. Just in case things do go wrong.  

Mike Brady. Anyone who can blend that many people into family harmony can certainly organize a remodel team.

Every home improvement project needs a dad who’ll watch your every move and silently fume when you’ve done it wrong but will still love you anyway. We’d invite Jay Pritchett from Modern Family; he’s good at that kind of stuff.

Tony Soprano. In case somebody attempts to rip you off or becomes difficult to work with.

It’s pretty unlikely that any of these dads will show up to help you with your tile project so call your own dad. Tell him what you’re up to. He’s been storing up some wisdom for this very moment.

Father’s Day is June 19th! Go buy a greeting card.
