Looks like a completely different kitchen, right? As you can see we had toppers added to extend the height of the cabinets to the ceiling. Crown molding was then added. Friends, if you ever find yourself contemplating whether or not to have your kitchen cabinets extend to the ceiling, DO IT. There should be no hesitation. Brad and I also installed dimmable under-cabinet lighting. More on that project later, but as you can see it makes a big difference....more
Well, the big day is finally here! I’m so excited to share our Kitchen Renovation, from Home Depot, with you guys! Woohoo!! You may recall, that I selected the Martha Stewart Cabinets. The style that I picked out was Ox Hill and the color was Picket Fence, which is really a fancy name for White! I went with the Full Cabinet Replacement option, which was generously provided by Home Depot! I now have my dream kitchen and what a huge difference it makes!...more
We love the layout and ample amount of storage space our kitchen offers. However, we don’t love the color of the cabinets. Plus, there’s just too much wood going on in our kitchen with the cabinets and flooring. So refacing was the perfect option for us. We get to keep the layout of our kitchen, but improve the look and function of it. The new cabinet doors will be taller so the top of the cabinets will become an additional shelf. By adding the toppers and taller doors we’re gaining storage space because we’ll be able to store more things and hide them behind the cabinet doors....more
We decided to go all out and get new counter tops and new flooring while we are at it! Since the Home Depot can do all of that too, it just made sense to do it all now, and have them install it all at once. At the end of the appointment, you get a print out of your new Kitchen to take home with you. Yay! And if you decide to proceed with the Renovation, you can have them come out to your home to take the official measurements. Once the measurements are done, they are sent to your kitchen designer and he makes any adjustments to make sure everything will fit just right!...more
Remember how I've been talking about sprucing up our kitchen cabinets for the past year? First, I wanted to paint them. Then, I came to the realization that I despise painting furniture so I decided I would hire someone to paint them. Well for once my procrastination paid off because I was recently contacted by the good people at Home Depot about participating in their Replace, Reface, Renew kitchen cabinet program through their Design Connect services. You better believe I let out my signature "Whhhaaaat!?!" after opening the email....more
Thankfully Home Depot has three excellent options to make anyone's dream kitchen a reality, even mine! The options are Replace, Reface or Renew. Replace is just how it sounds, the old cabinets come out and fabulous new ones go in and you can select the lay out that's just right for you, and your family! With refacing, you keep your existing cabinets, and they replace the doors, trim etc. This is a nice option if you want to keep the same footprint that you have, it's typically less costly then replacing the cabinets, and it takes a lot less time....more
