They had great suggestions about designing a kitchen for kids, what appliances I should buy based on my cooking level, and how to furnish and organize everything once the kitchen was complete. I never want to move now that we have a fabulous, beautiful kitchen, but, if we are ever in the market for this service again, they are the only company I would use. You pay for what you get with them and KDC delivers an elite service on every level.
One of the most exquisite natural stones known to mankind, marble is a godsend for those looking to take a detour from the boldness of granite countertops. Aesthetically pleasing and available in countless varieties, there is a reason marble has so much significance even historically. If you are going for sophistication, meet your best friend: marble countertops.
I had it a little bit easier than most people starting on a kitchen remodel. I’ve had this pin on my pin board for years and that’s exactly how I wanted my kitchen. White marble counters, white cabinets, and a beautiful sea foam/tealish backsplash. I knew I couldn’t afford marble (and I’d totally wreck it) so we decided to go with quartz. I found one that looked like marble, DuPont Zodiac Coarse Carrara to match the custom white cabinetry (the white cabinet shows the color, but it won’t have the arch).

If you do have the budget to rearrange appliances, make sure to keep your floor plan in mind. Does it follow the natural triangular traffic pattern between the refrigerator, stove, and oven? Is the dishwasher next to the sink? It should be, because otherwise, you create a mess every time you walk across the room with a dripping dish in your hand. To save money, I once put a dishwasher in the counter opposite the sink – and as a result, I cleaned up drips on the floor for years.
There are several elements in your kitchen with storage capabilities. Most homeowners start with their cabinets. If you need new cabinets, now is the time to update storage capacity with drawer inserts, roll-out trays or more shelves. You can also choose a closed cabinet design, a glass face to display the items in the cabinets, or even have open shelving.
