RE: List of stuff in kitchens? (Follow-Up #1)

One book I had recommended that I make a list of everything I have in the kitchen so that I my new plan included a place for everything. It really saved me - I used it to review my plan and double check that everything was accounted for. It was tough to figure out if things woud fit in the space alloted so I left a little extra room. Just this weekend I unpacked everything into the new cabinets! I had marked where everything went on the plan when I was evaluating it - so I used it to unpack - woked great! The pots & pans didn't fit well in the big drawers I had planned (handles were too long) so I moved them to the super susan. You should try to build in some flexiblity that way. THe other great thing was making a list of everything I liked & hated about the current kitchn so I could plan those in/out. Anyway here's my list from planning..

Hot pads

RE: who loves their porcelain 'wood' floor tile? (Follow-Up #26)

We removed out newly stained oak floors(parquet look didn't go with new kitchen) and installed Ariostea porcelain tile floors(color Rovere Impero. We were looking for a rustic reclaimed look and we think we nailed it. We love the durability and we can go a couple of days between sweeping cause it hides dust/dirt so well. The pieces were 6" x 48" in size and we went with a 1/16" grout line. The price was a lot more than hardwood floor.
