Kitchen Remodeling Tip #3: Choose Natural Colors

Once you’ve decided on a color pallet – it’s much easier to make choices on flooring, cabinets, fixtures and more.

As Patricia discusses in her article 2012 Kitchen Colors Borrow from Nature, the latest trends are to bring the natural colors from outdoors into your kitchen.

Kitchen Remodeling Tip #2: Choose the Right Cabinets, Counters and Floors

Your kitchen cabinets, counters and flooring have a lot to say about your style. Together, they set the stage for the design in your kitchen remodel. So, take your time in choosing pieces that fit your style – and be sure they all fall within a similar style.

Patricia can also show you how to spot the slight differences in cabinet door details that make a big difference in style.

Kitchen Remodeling Tip #1: Start With a Plan

Patricia has a strong belief in this saying: “Fail to plan and you plan to fail.” And we’ve seen this far too many times in DIY home improvement projects.
