Updating our kitchen.
*Options I considered for this project:
A big debate was between stainless steel appliances and black. We chose black.
*Questions and unexpected events that arose during the project:
We received slightly different style cabinets than we had originally ordered, they were already customized, however, and they looked great so we had them installed to stay on track.
* Cost Comments:
~$6000 on materials (oak cabinets, silestone tops, black GE appliances)
~$2000 on labor assistance
*My motivation to do this project:
We wanted to increase the value of our home, while keeping an updated look throughout.
*Project Steps:
We researched updated kitchens, at IKEA, Home Depot, and Lowe's. We knew the main thing we wanted was an island and additional space, so we hired a contractor to guide us along the process and let us know exactly what our options were. Once we solidified a plan, it was off to the races.
Advice:
Kitchen - Do recessed lighting, Do an island,

    Ephriam gave us great direction and insight, to truly discover what we wanted. And, he helped us put it all together in a timely and cost effective fashion.

    We are in the process of renovating our kitchen too and have decided to go with black. Mainly because I have a double oven that I love that is black. The lower price is a nice perk though plus I still think black looks great.
