After 20 yrs, we decided to design our kitchen for better use of space as well as aesthetics.

Same basic configuration w/relocation of rear entry to allow for wrap around cabinets, corner fridge and larger island. Flip flopped the sink & cooktop & added corner cupboards to the dining area which allowed us to turn the table and add the leaves. GE paneled appliances including induction cooktop for smooth, clean look. Tile from Byrd Tile, lighting from, appliances from Appliance World all in Raleigh. Cabinets: Kitchens & More, Durham. Contractor: Johnny Woody/Woodybilt. I can't say enough about my contractor...not only a friend but a first rate contractor who went above and beyond and Kelly and Steve @ Kitchens & More are a very creative and talented group of folks who made sure I had my dream kitchen. Thanks guys.

    I loved this site since logging on Miriam. Got my sister-in-law on it as well-by showing her Donna's new ktichen & copper sink! Everything about the site is so helpful-and incredibly positive!!

    Gorgeous. Regarding the red carpet, it would be nice. Why don't you compromise - get a rug with red accents in it and have the rug prominently black. This way you both win.
