Kitchen With Walnut Counter Before
A new kitchen can be one of the most dramatic changes to a home and a homeowner’s lifestyle. When my wife and I renovated our kitchen, we went from wincing every time we cooked a meal to really loving to spend time there. The new kitchen is the heart of our home. It is where our family eats breakfast, does homework, gathers with friends and of course cooks.
The kitchen should also be integrated into the house. It should be designed to take advantage of views, light and the flow of the house. If the kitchen is awkward to approach from the rest of the house, the homeowner will pay for that mistake every day. Ideally, the kitchen should be designed so that it is convenient to bring in groceries, serve dinner, or organize a summer barbeque. Of course, there will be compromises based on the layout of the home or landscape, but those can be minimized with thoughtful design.

I saw the first kitchen on Instagram early this morning. Saw this post on my work email. I love every single one of the kitchen before and afters. Your work is just pure joy to see!
Wow! Thanks for updating us on your beautiful kitchens. What a difference! They are just beautiful. Nice job! Keep us posted on the baby lambs.
I’ll give you the inside scoop-we had a lamb this morning right after I sent out the newsletter. Waiting for more.
I love watching your work. Its like having a good cup of tea on a cold winters afternoon. All of your renovation exude warmth. Love it!
