With help and much inspiration from my friends at the Kitchen Forum, I completely designed the new kitchen, from flooring to lighting/electric to cabinets, appliances & layout.
Cabinets are fully custom, beaded inset, solid cherry heartwood from Cabinetry Direct. The best thing about working with Ken was that there was no middleman, no annoying KD, and I got to be completely in control of the project and the budget. Details are provided below.
Although it's small, it's the most functional, user-friendly kitchen I've ever had!
