Choose your own adventure: Kitchen Renovation

This weekend, I wandered into the Restoration Hardware outlet and found myself appalled. All the nice pretty things were bent, dented and horrible to look at. Which is how I feel about renovating sometimes. The in-between is not always the best as keeping your spirits up. So, how often do you want to see the stages of the kitchen renovation?

I find the process so interesting. Simple "before & afters" are pretty but that's not how things really happen.

Although, in the spirit of full disclosure, our kitchen is on the list of things to tackle. So this opinion is purely self-serving.

Good luck!!!

It was a nice post on Kitchen Cabinets Renovation.

The kitchen is the easiest room in the house to become outdated, and this is because it is often the room that employs the most amount of technology in its variety of appliances. Naturally, this should be the first area to address when designing contemporary kitchens. A good place to start is with the oven. It is not uncommon today to find contemporary kitchens that employ two ovens, one on top of the other, with a warming drawer on the bottom. These double-ovens can be extremely useful, especially if one is planning a large dinner for a crowd.
