Before going to a kitchen cabinet showroom, see what this Greensboro, NC homeowner did!

Kitchen in need of function & eye appeal

Same kitchen cabinets, new counter tops, tile, and hood
 A Kitchen cabinet store isn't always the best place to start if you haven't determined what needs to change in your room. A free consultation from a qualified interior designer could help you determine your goals. Some good questions to start -  
  • Is there a more functional layout?
  • Should any doorways or windows be relocated?
  • Will replacing the cabinets solve what I don't like about the room? 
The photo above shows a kitchen that needed three things: a better use for the "clutter catching" desk area, color, and architectural appeal. 

The microwave and oven replaced the desk, and a stucco hood and  tile back splash were added for architectural appeal.  This created a focal point and added space so it didn't feel crowded in the stove area. Notice the colorful valance above the window, and new drop lights over the island. Last, we replaced the Formica with granite counter tops. By sticking to a predeterminded plan and a budget, this Greensboro homeowner was able to remodel their kitchen on a tight budget!
