  • HGTV RMS Inspiration Room - my new kitchen photos, My kitchen is one of the inspiration rooms on episode #208 of the Rate My Space Show. Thank you Angelo, Jillian and HGTV for choosing my kitchen as an inspiration room. It was quite an honor and a lot of fun being on the show. I renovated my kitchen a couple of years ago. We went from an outdated 1980's kitchen to this. The original kitchen had pickled oak cabinets with white formica countertops. I wish I had taken a "before" picture to show you. The change is remarkable., Kitchens Design

  • Brand new kitchen, This kitchen is in a 1970s era home in Knoxville Tennessee. We took down two walls to create this space and completely removed the old kitchen. I like contemporary. My wife leans toward country. We met in the middle. We both love it!  This remodel took about six months of planning (we thought about it for years) and about three months for the construction. Look to the right for more photos. And visit my blog on for more details., Kitchens Design

  • Painted and Glazed Cabinets .. How to Step by Step, If you love painted cabinets with that "Old World" feel see how I achieved the look in my kitchen.  I can't however  take all of the credit for this remodel.  Without my sister-in-law I could not have achieved all of this in 1 week.  Thank You could never convey how grateful I am for her help and how much fun I had with her that week.  Take a look I have tried to break it down day by day I hope this will inspire you to try this on your own.  If you don't have a sister-in-law I rent mine., Kitchens Design

  • Northwest Contemporary Kitchen Remodel, We purchased our outdated 1964 home 10 years ago and have been remodeling it slowly. We recently finished the kitchen/laundry addition. One of the main drawbacks of our home was the fact that there was no laundry room. The washer and dryer were previously located in a small closet off of the main  hallway. 

After much thought, we decided to include the washer/dryer in the new kitchen area. We'd seen this many times in European homes and decided it would be a good fit for us as well. So far, I've really enjoyed it. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and it has been really handy! Also the high counter tops over the washer/dryer makes a great buffet area, easily accessible to the patio area (coming soon...)

By far, the most difficult item for me to pick out was the counter tops. I really love the look of cement but was nervous to use it because it's not as durable. After months of looking at different materials we finally decided on quartz counter tops by Caesarstone in Raven. Hard to tell in the photos, but it's a very soft black/deep gray. We went with stained concrete for my table though and I absolutely LOVE it! In fact, it's my favorite part of the kitchen!

I've spent countless hours both watching HGTV and browsing here on the website getting ideas for the remodel. RATE MY SPACE was the source of much inspiration and I've been looking forward to finally adding my own photos to it :)

Our goal was to create a warm, cozy kitchen area that all four of us could enjoy. Used warm colors to help counter the LONG, gray Oregon days. We're happy with the results!

Thanks for taking a look :)

  • Pinnacle of Design BEFORE PHOTOS ADDED!, You have to really see the "before" to truly appreciate our  kitchen now. It was UGLY!  Now  we have stacked cabinetry that draws the eye to the peak of the cathedral ceilings with soft cream-colored raised-panel doors and a classic beaded inset frame featuring magnificent molding flutes columns pilasters keys and corbels. This is our dream kitchen and we researched for over a year to find the "right fit" of a contractor and designer to make our vision a reality. They nailed it!, Kitchens Design

  • Out with the old in with the NEW, WOW Thanks to all for the nice comments This was a redo down to the studs and we are very very happy with our design.

And the wall paint color is “OAT” by Devine. The name of the granite on the counter tops is "Juparana Golden Vyara".  Thanks again for sharing your comments!, Kitchens Design

  • Painted kitchen with wood island, The ceilings are 10' tall so we had the cabinets go all the way up. All of the upper cabinets have lights inside and the boxes were built of alder and stained to match the island. The island has a flush eating ledge to give me a larger prep area. We added a small phone desk with upper glass cabinets across from the nook made use of a very odd space. I did all of the design work and my husband built it he is such a great craftsman!!!
