Kitchen consultaion


Here is a wonderful diamond in the rough . It seems to be a common thread that most people hate their old oak stained cabinets , in its time it was new and sought after but its day has passed, and it is time for change .
If your cabinets are real wood and in good shape there is no need to rip them out and start over , as I always encourage painting is to be considered . The power of paint is enormous , it is work but it is work worth doing , I say this from experience .
Here is a great example of a kitchen just waiting for a transformation.

Two appliance styles for consideration.


I would love to see one of these faucets , they are from overstock and an amazing deal.








I wanted to share with you a recent design kitchen consultation . The owner of this kitchen is going to give it a face lift , well more than a face lift , they are going to install new granite counters and purchase new stainless steel appliances . They wanted me to come up with some plans to update this kitchen . So as I do , I get a vision for a space initially , and after a few days of constantly thinking of this space and coming up with details and improvements I was able to come up with a plan of action . And here is the after inspiration photo that I have come up with . I would be thrilled with such a space . There is a lot of hard work to be completed , but the after will be worth it , I assure them , not to mention that it will add great value to their home .

Very nice. I like how you added some detail to the fronts of the lower cabinets.

Love the little black accent tile that is running through the backsplash.

That looks really good. I have white cabinets in my house now with a white island and I've always wanted to do a different paint treatment on the island.

I've tried sending you emails on what we have done so far with your ideas but it keeps getting sent back to me as undeliverable.

I still can't get it to go through but I posted what I've done on my blog. http://patknitting.blogspot.com/
