We blogged this last year, and were interested to revisit it to see how we felt about these trends one year later. This is what the design professionals had to say, what do you say?
IN: White Cabinets, Quartz Countertops, Stone & Glass Tiles, Farmhouse Sinks
OUT: Ice Machines, Wallpaper, Granite

I may be incorrect but I figured the "ice maker' referred to is the installed under the
counter type. Often found in the bar area or in an outdoor area they resemble the small counter- height refrigerator. The difference is this appliance only makes ice. The size can vary somewhat and they can also have the same "built in" look that dishwashers and refrigerators can have. Yes, Jeanette, in Atlanta we need all the ice we can make. Given my kitchen space though, I will have to make do with the ice-maker in my refrigerator. Think I'll go get some iced tea now!
YES, I'm a crazy cat lady. I'm cuckoo for my cats and that's why I built them an outdoor cat-enclosure. They love it and I don't have to worry about them getting hurt outside.

Just had to update! This idea is looking better and more necessary or, at least, screening in
the deck. My house apparently contains some secret kitty sign that say "Black cats welcome here". In my earlier comment I mentioned the stay tuxedo cat on our porch.. Well, she stayed, I fed her now she is "our" cat. She turned out to be an older cat and so loving. Still have a vet visit to go before we bring here inside and start the introduction phase with our cat Winston J. (black long hair) Well, last week what shoes up but another long haired black cat with gold eyes. It is still very young but also very tame and loving, obviously not feral. Off to the vet this week and praying it is micro-chipped. If not, I will begin looking for its new forever home otherwise my husband may start looking for his new "forever home". Maybe a safe place outside will help while I'm trying to find the baby a new home. Hubby and I have been talking about various ideas in addition to screening in the porch but our porch and deck are on the second story (walk-out basement) so that really presents some unusual projects.
TAMMY: Thank you for being a caring person who takes care of the cats that came with the house. I suspect that has a lot to do with their living so long as outdoor cats. I wish we had more people as caring and I hope you get a lot of pleasure from their company.
At least, that's how this client felt. Before the renovation, the kitchen did not make
the most of the space available. After, the cherry Omega cabinetry, fabulous island, additional lighting and many other details created a "gorgeous" "rich looking' space! (At least, that's what our Facebook fans said)
We love this kitchen too, what do you think? Join our discussion here: http://bit.ly/AkAtlFb and find out more about remodeling your kitchen: http://www.akatlanta.com/Atlanta-Kitchen-Ren...
All of the rooms in our house have great, old hardwood floors. So when we first walked into the laundry room to find that the floor had been painted over and then scratched heavily by a
dog of the previous owner we knew there was only one solution - paint it!!
We were inspired by an old restaurant in Talladega to go with very large checkerboards. We hope you enjoy the transformation! Each cherkbaord is 3ft by 3ft - we topped it off with 2 coats of poly urethane.

That looks terrific! I love painted wood floors and would really like to paint my kitchen
floor so I show my husband every photo I can lay my hands on. So far it hasn't helped wear him down but even Chinese water torture takes a while.
