A simple update of new paint colors and new hardware can make a huge difference, especially if you are painting old dark wood cabinets light. The next easiest thing is to get new cabinets and countertops. Then come new appliances and one thing often leads to another. For a full remodel -before you hire an architect or a kitchen designer or use a free kitchen designer that many cabinet companies offer, think about what you really want, your “must- haves”. Is it space? Is it possible to open up a wall to an adjacent room or should you extend into the back yard? Think about a different layout, maybe an island, maybe French doors. Do you wish for more efficient storage or more storage? How about an eat-in nook? Wood cabinets or painted cabinets? Materials to research: countertops, backsplashes, sinks, flooring, appliances, faucets, lighting. Would you like a microwave drawer or over-the-range microwave? Maybe a dishwasher drawer, a workstation sink, a wine fridge? Have fun, gather ideas, don’t get overwhelmed with choices. Call me for help and don’t forget color! CASS MORRIS 510.524.1726
