How do I inventory/measure my stuff for best effect?

posted by: JessHS on 03.17.2014 at 10:00 am in Kitchens Forum

I have heard lots of people comment to inventory or measure their stuff to help in planning their new kitchens. I feel like that is what I need to do now, but I'm kind of stuck with how to actually do this. Is there a worksheet or some other guide to getting this done? Anybody have any advice?

Cream and white kitchen

posted by: renov8r on 03.06.2014 at 11:10 pm in Kitchens Forum

Does anyone have photos of a cream and white kitchen. I am thinking of painting lower cabinets a cream and then the uppers and island in an off white. I am wondering if the cream will end up looking dirty with the off white. The walls will also be off white.

Flooring for the kitchen

posted by: renov8r on 12.05.2013 at 12:08 am in Kitchens Forum

We have decided we would like to have hardwood flooring in our kitchen. The rest of the house has old oak strip flooring. We have had 3 different pieces of advice.
Our designer wants to see the same type of narrow strip flooring installed.
One contractor has advised engineered hardwood since it is much more impervious to water and scratches in a busy work area.
Another contractor advised the wider hardwood laid and finished in the kitchen. It is thicker than the engineered so if scratched can be repaired. Are there big differences in pricing of these 3 types of floor?
I know that getting quality work laying and finishing hardwood is an issue in our area which makes the engineered floor appealing. Also it will take longer since it must be finished after it is laid.
My heart would like the thin strips but I am really concerned about cleaning it and avoiding scratching.
