(NAPSI)—Remodeling a kitchen can be a great idea—for most
families it is the heart of the home and most-used room—and it can be
easier than you may realize, if you heed these four suggestions.
1. Cabinet “magic”:
Instead of going through the trouble and expense of installing new, custom
cabinets, give your current ones a coat of paint, new pulls and knobs or
perhaps new doors.
2. Light up your life: It can
be a bright idea to improve the lighting. Make sure overhead lighting is
concentrated in those areas where you work the most, such as over the stove
and sink. Under-cabinet lighting can also be a good idea.

well but one thing that can give any kitchen a new look is to change the

convey their personality, but most of all want their kitchen to make their
In response, Blanco came up with grids that float inside the sink to dry
dishes, elevate pots or wash vegetables; colanders and cutting boards that
can sit on top of the sink or on a specially engineered ledge to save counter
space and make prep work a dream. You have to set the colander inside the
sink anyway, while using the cutting board in the sink is a sneaky way to get
in more counter space and make the job of prepping easier, too.
