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 .

What can you do to hide the tv , well I came up with some rustic shutters , they look charming closed or open .
