Making the Kitchen the Heart of Your Home

In older homes, the kitchens are often small and purely functional. Galley style is common, especially in terraced houses, as few people saw the need to take up more space than necessary with their kitchens. They were used to make food, and that was it. The family didn’t spend any time in these rooms. They were just for cooking.  But times have changed. You may have heard people referring to their kitchen as the heart of their home, waxing lyrical about positive family time spent cookin...

Tall Ceiling Kitchen Cabinet Options

I’m working with a local client on a kitchen renovation as a design consultant, together we’ve come up with a plan to renovate her space.

7 Ways to Remodel Your Kitchen Without Ruining Your Marriage

That moment at the altar is unlike any other. We know that many eyes are on us. Yet there is only one pair we care about. In this perfect moment, everything makes sense. Love conquers all.  Then reality sets in. That perfect moment becomes, well, less perfect. Stress, bills, disappointments, unmet expectations, and then…kids. Things change. That moment that no one could infiltrate gets barraged.  A moment of solitude leads into two lives that are constantly being pulled in two differ...

Flip House Kitchen Remodel

Hello! Today I’m excited to share with you my latest kitchen remodel. This is the kitchen at the flip house in Las Vegas and it’s finally finished!

Mixed wood tones exist in the dark floors, the variegated tones in the bamboo shades, the ceiling fan, and decorative accents.     Here’s a fuzzy iphone picture of what I started with in late 2016, this space had dated 30 year old oak cabinets and...

How Your Home Renovation Could Help Pay For Itself

Sleek Single Handle Kitchen Faucets

This week at the flip house, my plumber is installing the kitchen faucet. For that space, I chose a champagne brass single handle faucet with built in pull out sprayer and it is a beauty. I also just replaced the faucet in my kitchen in California, again a sleek single handle faucet with sprayer in a matte nickel finish. And I’ve got my eye on a few different options as an upgrade to my studio kitchen after I replace those countertops. So faucets are on my brain this month.   gramercy in matte b...

Closed Cabinets v. Open Shelving, Revisited

In a recent article on controversial kitchen choices at Apartment Therapy, a reader quiz revealed a 2/3 to 1/3 split on open shelving, most readers preferring closed cabinet doors to open shelving in kitchens. What are the pros and cons? With closed upper cabinets, the kitchen can look visually cleaner and more cohesive. Closed cabinets conceal disorganization, a benefit to those who don’t want to be styling their kitchen shelves every day. However upper cabinets can make a kitchen feel more cra...

Ways to Keep Your Kitchen Remodeling Project in Budget

One of the biggest challenges to overcome when doing a kitchen remodel is cost. Even with a clear budget in mind, the cost of making the necessary – and desired – changes to the kitchen can quickly get out of hand. It is not uncommon for a simple remodeling project to turn into an extensive one at two or three times the intended cost. Fortunately, there are ways to keep your remodeling project within budget. You don’t have to sacrifice that new appliance you have always wanted or the count...

Taupe Kitchen Cabinets

I placed the order for new kitchen cabinets at the flip house. I chose a pale taupe color for the lower cabinets and the kitchen island, and a soft white for the upper cabinets and pantry. I’ve done gray cabinets in a kitchen before, I still love it, but for this remodel, I’m choosing a warmer neutral. It will complement the dark flooring, white walls, and the transitional looks already in place in the home (see the fireplace makeover here and the bathroom makeover here). Warmer grays are defini...

Galley Kitchen Remodel

This is kitchen renovation #2 completed in partnership with the Committee on the Shelterless (COTS), a local non-profit that services homeless people in my community. This home is used as a transitional home for our veterans. (I featured the first home’s kitchen makeover and family room in January.) This galley kitchen was challenging in its design because it is a pass through space and doesn’t hold its own corner in the house. Just beyond is a bedroom and the exit to the backyard and people wil...

Remodeling 101: Five Questions to Ask When Choosing Kitchen Countertops

Serving as both kitchen workhorse and showpiece, today’s countertops play a demanding role. Site of all food preparation, they’re expected to be durable (stain-proof, scratch-proof, and heat-proof), beautiful, and (best-case scenario) economical. No wonder choosing a countertop material is such a daunting decision. But it needn’t be so tricky. Instead of getting seduced or intimidated by the endless options in the marketplace, begin by asking yourself the right questions and setting your priorit...

Sponsored: A Japanese-Inflected Kitchen with Bosch Home Appliances

In partnership with Bosch Home Appliances, we challenged ourselves to style a recently remodeled New England kitchen three ways to reflect a change of mood and season. First up: a wintry Japanese look. For a Zen feel, we paired natural materials like clay and wood, plus a single branch of foraged white pine. Because the kitchen has a monochrome palette and a full suite of ultra-minimal, Bauhaus-inspired Bosch appliances, it lends itself to a variety of looks (perfect for the restless aesthete)....

Bath and Kitchen Remodels: Breaking Tradition Two Ways

Homeowners are parting ways with traditional bathrooms and kitchens, taking a walk on the side of contemporary and transitional, according to the 2017 Kitchen & Bath Design Trends Report by the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA). Their preference is as clear as black and white (er, gray and white), with subtle shades of gray and white the new neutrals in a mix of modern and conventional styles. Ten percent of homeowners completed a bathroom or kitchen remodeling project in 2016, accordin...

Kitchen of the Week: In Montana, Rustic Chic on a Budget

It took three and a half years for blogger Vanessa Pleasants of Vintage Whites to perfect her dream kitchen in her Kalispell, Montana, home. “When my husband and I bought the house,” she said, “the kitchen was red, lined with cheap white cabinets, a linoleum floor, and had almost no appliances.” They improved it bit by bit, as time and money allowed, doing almost all of the heavy lifting themselves, from DIY projects like installing kitchen cabinets to more involved projects like pouring concret...

Cost vs. Value: Which Home Improvements Offer the Highest ROI in 2017?

With the many different projects reported annually in Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report, not much has changed from last year…and that’s not a bad thing. The 29 projects found on this year’s report paid back an average of 64.3 cents on the dollar in resale value. Looking at the 24 most tracked projects (projects consistently tracked for the last six years), their payback for 2017 was also 64.3 cents—only three-quarters of a penny higher than 2016 projections. Why the little change? Simp...
