Hi there! I am struggling with color cicohes for our kitchen. We are having an island built in our kitchen that resembles the 80's Oak kitchen. We have a laminate floor that looks like slate with primarily brown with some grey in it. Our appliances are all black. We are looking at a cream color maple cabinet. We are stuck on what color laminate countertop to put in there. Mu husband thinks darker is better against the light cabinets. I think the tops need should be on the lighter side like a beige or light brown with flecks of black to tie in the appliances. We will be redoing the entire kitchen to match the island in a few months. I appreciate any advice you can lend. Thanks!

Yes, I agree with you totally on the feeturas in your dream house. My current house is pretty much as far from a dream as you can get, but it has that all important feature potential. I can't wait to add lots and lots of white.

You have asked a number of qnietsous that in some ways are related and in many ways are not.We don't save on health care here. While we don't pay for it at the time we need it we do pay higher taxes to pay for the health care. What it all means is that we don't need to pay for private insurance, insurance which could be priced out of reach if we get sick, which could be denied due to any "pre existing condition" or which could be cancelled by the company. Everyone has the same coverage and it is at no direct charge other then through our various taxes. For that reason I'd say we spend less on insurance then in the US since everyone pays and those who need to use it, use it.I think houses are cheaper in the US although from what I see I get more for my money here in Canada. Right now I own a 5 bedroom, 2 bath, 2200 sq ft home with granite counters and hardwood throughout, on a large lot and with a two car detached and fully finished garage. The home is 9 years old and cost me $272,500 Cdn or $269,500 US. I found a comparable home for sale in Lincoln Nebraska (just picked what I thought was an average market) and it was over $400,000 US. Are there similar homes with a lower price in the US? I'm sure but I'm also sure that there are similar homes more expensive in other areas too.When it comes to salaries I do believe they are higher as well in Canada. I'm in the Cdn military and the same rank as one of your E-7s. I'm making $82,000 a year and I am able to support a wife and 6 kids on that pay. An E-7 in the US military makes much less then that each year. Looking at other jobs one sees that the average police salary in the US is approx $50,000 for a typical patrol officer. In Canada the average police officers salary is approx $70,000 a year for a typical patrol officer.References : http://voovypmfej.com [url=http://ugxqjgd.com]ugxqjgd[/url] [link=http://qvuhglqz.com]qvuhglqz[/link]

Thought I should conemmt that Forrest made great coffee drinks & used fresh single bean selections from Alterra. Maybe the oil you had simply wasn't your style. This place was beyond the others in the area. I hope the new roastery that is taking place of the Java Connection is worthy of the hard work Forrest put into it.As for the cool wooden furniture & accents he made those too. http://jlpydma.com [url=http://jomusl.com]jomusl[/url] [link=http://igseyyloi.com]igseyyloi[/link]

you can leave lgoenr than 18 hours, but not sure how much lgoenr. A few hours shouldn't really make much difference. The 2nd rise could go lgoenr than 2 hours i guess, but once the loaf is risen it should be baked. FYI- i'm not much of a baking expert and can only vouch for the recipe procedure as shown. good luck!

I think you should use white as an aeccnt. You could also mix it up with a little royal blue or fluorescent green. Add a little yellow to the mix as well. I don't have any sites to help you. Sorry. Good luck.

Great pictures! They remnid me of a very cool hotel in Teton Village in Jackson Hole. This hotel (can't remember the name right now) used a lot of reclaimed material because they were going for LEED certification. It was sort of the darker, library approach too. Hope you will show us more pictures of this project as it progresses.Happy Thursday!

7d2maria, thank you for all the great advice you give to your readres. I appreciate that you take the time to help each of us with such an important element of our homes. You truly have a gift!we recently did a kitchen renovation and went with shaker style cabinetry in SW Alabaster, with a small herringbone patterned carrara marble backsplash and black pearl granite (the piece we have leans gray instead of brown, but still has some warmth). all of our appliances and hardware is stainless and we have hardwood floors.I am struggling to make a decision on the wall color. I've been thinking light blue or gray in my head all this time, but every shade I try turns me off. Should we stay in the alabaster family and go all white? Alabster looks very white in natural light (not that i have much in this particular room), a little creamier in artificial light i really am happy with the cabinetry color in general, but have never done white on white before.the kicker is that only a small section of our wall is next to the tile/cabinetry. we have an L shape kitchen with just one window above the sink. since i only tiled a little above the window base, there's only a small section of wall that goes above the window that i'm worried about "taking away" from the overall kitchen. The opposite wall has no cabinetry on it, just a piece of furniture, so i feel as though any color would be fine over there. because of the variation in the hardwoods (warmer tones w/ dark slats), we have a neutral wall color of PP Indian Ivory on most walls of the house, accented with lots of white/dark wood furniture/accessories w/ pops of color here and there. We also have a few blue walls, one of which is in an ajoining room, but i'm considering changing that to grasscloth in the near future so if the kitchen needs to be blue, i'm happy to go that route.i'm really stuck. any suggestions?
Pouy Posted On: Friday, October 09, 2015 12:06:37 PM
Scrubs! Most places make them buy their own. Just make sure you check and find out if they have to be a paiatculrr color. The exact shade. Not all blue is the same so ask what exact color/shade. http://bgqgfpipdh.com [url=http://fxygbzyr.com]fxygbzyr[/url] [link=http://amdxyc.com]amdxyc[/link]

4f3This is Granny again. The Lady's Dream counters have been isteallnd and I've already bonded with them. They don't have as much gold in them as I had thought and the Travertino Beige tile doesn't look good, so I'll have to find a different backsplash. That's fine because I'm not a big fan of gold anyway. Since so many whites were mentioned in this blog, I went to Benjamin Moore today to get paint samples. The Simply White is perfect and I've already decided to use it for the cabinets. I like Old Country for the walls.I didn't mention that I recently had my cabinets faux painted and varnished and they were so ugly that I decided to start all over. My designer's painters did some sanding and prep work and applied the oil based primer and now the primer is peeling off. I don't know if it's a general problem or if some areas weren't prepared properly, but if they have to take off the primer and do some super prep work, it's going to be a drag. I'm waiting for her to come check it out and am anxious to have my new Simply White cabinets. Thank you for this blog. It's good therapy and a great source of information.

3ecDear Maria:We have a medium/dark oak caetnbis from the 80's in our kitchen. 2 years ago we cleaned, re-stained and re-varnished since my husband was afraid of painting them. He is now ready. We also changed the back-splash to 4" square white tiles, and changed the counter tops to melamine, with a special edging that makes them look like corian in beige and white speckles. Our appliances are new, but white, and right now we do not have funds to change them to stainless steel.I am worried if I paint the caetnbis all white, walls are white and the extra Ikea caetnbis that are white on one wall, I will create a total white-out.(My appliances stay white). My floors are wood, not oak, like the rest of our house, but pine, narrow slats, and have that yellowish stain. How do I bring this kitchen into modern times? What color should I paint the caetnbis and what to do with the pine floors?Thank you,Susan http://seqxkiebgw.com [url=http://bkbcjlhplnm.com]bkbcjlhplnm[/url] [link=http://ywrelaxkkh.com]ywrelaxkkh[/link]

I love that every option incudles a high ceiling - something that I lust over. There is something so fresh and clean about a white kitchen with grey accents; I like the industrial feel. Instead of choosing just one I'd like to put the following details together:- the backsplash in photo 1- the plate wall in photo 2- the bar in photo 3- the wood table in photo 4 (sigh, how I love the wood table in this photo)- the beams in photo 5- the open-face cupboards in photo 6PS: what is hanging from the ceiling in the 4th photo?

938Hi, I just found your blog while searching on 'painted canbeits'. The idea of priming/painting oak THRILLS me vs. throwing out perfectly good/newer canbeits, but since I don't have a garage/workshop I'm going to need to hire someone. I wanted to ask your advice I live in an old factory from the 1900s, that was rehabed in 2001. Its a very open floor plan, I have not painted anything yet, going to begin with the kitchen.Style: Antique-y, but try to be polished like house beautiful/elle decor stylish, not 'country'. The 1905 kitchen u showed is just my type, but i have a very small space.Cabinets: Builder oak. (If it makes sense the wood seems to 'fit in' but is too base level/cheapy/ doesn't give a polished feel. Thus, thinking paint.Appliances: Need to stay white, not replacingFloor: a pretty, light wood. not original, its new but they made a great choice. Love it. Peninsula: want to replace icky greyish/fleshy patterned laminate with reclaimed wood, found a carpenter who will do cherry (lighter) or walnut (darker). Can only do peninsula at this time, other countertops will have to wait. 2 Chairs at peninsula are pottery barn dark brown with reed seats, keeping theseBEST PART:On both sides of the kitchen several feet away are huge gorgeous (pine?) exposed beams, with black steel hardware. They are a medium colored brown wood, treated with something. Table at entrance of small kitchen, glass top, iron scrolled on cement base, 2 chairs are soft turquoise fabric 2 are neutral So here I am struggling with cabinet paint color. My gut tells me white would look like an operating room because of small size of kitchen with a lot of canbeits surround (7X7 floor area inside of counters)and would't 'flow' with the open floor plan. Afraid softer off white looks off in small kitchen with white appliances. Thoughts? Also any opinion on peninsula wood? If there is an option to send you pics and pay a fee, I would consider that as well, I really like your style

Continuous as in, the´╗┐ same flooring runnnig from all the rooms in the house through the entry ways for´╗┐ those rooms. So I had to make some funky cuts in the office to make it all work out right.If the room being floored was totally square, then its much easier to guarantee a greater than 1/2 the plank on the ends.

So true, so true. I always clhkcue at the kids who start their shooting warm up by jacking up threes. You can also tell a lot about a team with how they warm up. My kid's summer team was at a tournament in Kansas and we were scheduled to play a ranked team from Houston that gets plenty of national recognition from the AAU hype machine. As they walked in the gym, they took one look at our team of mostly white kids from Minnesota and proceeded to spend their entire warm-up time throwing alley-oop dunks to each other. It was literally a six minute dunk show with a handful of three-point attempts (mostly rim clangers with only a couple of makes, no less.) No lay ups. Few jump shots. No stretching, jogging, high knees, lateral movement, etc. Nothing compared to our very business-like, disciplined and varied warm up.It wasn't until we jumped to a 16 point lead in the first half that they began warm up physically and to the idea that maybe they should have taken the game more seriously, but by then it was too late. (We ended up winning by 3.) http://cltsczh.com [url=http://azupyqv.com]azupyqv[/url] [link=http://vjvkda.com]vjvkda[/link]

Okay, seriously? Your blog is, like, my own paeronsl suicide hotline from my kitchen remodel materials decision agony. I, too, adore white. It makes me feel so good. When we moved into this 1975'ish house, we scraped the wallpaper, yanked the heavy drapes (a Waverly bomb exploded in this home), and painted. I painted the den, living room, and kitchen white. Kitchen: Mountain Peak. Den ended up being a custom color because of how many times I took it back to the Benjamin Moore store to remix it to approximate a very pale taupe, but the original looked pink; and the living room is Super White with a (gasp!) Hot Spice accent wall which will promptly be painted over since I read your post about accent walls. Yes, I love the white. And then Revere Pewter entered my life. We painted the master bath RP with crisp white trim, and I feel so airy in that room. The den is also RP now, and it should come as no shock to me that some force beyond my control chose a pewter-stain/wash cabinet for the kitchen we're finally remodeling. (The dark, 70's wood cabinets we refreshed with black paint in 04 just finally wore out.) So I'm having a very, very hard time staying on track with the white love. I keep trying to restrain myself from using more black (mantle in adjoining den was painted black, and I painted white and black stripes on the paneling behind the book cases); but the cabinets look gorgeous with the darker granites. I need to hire someone to order my white quartz countertops for me next week so I don't do something stupid!Thanks for listening! ACK! I'm losing it! WHITE POWER!

Kuyucu Posted On: Wednesday, December 23, 2015 7:29:45 AM
633Dear Maria:How I love your blog! We are the lucky owners of a dedared early 90's kitchen with raised panel "honey oak" cabinets that are in desperate need of updating. They are structurally sound and I like the style, but just not the oak, so I am going to paint them. We have put in natural ash wood floors througout the house (ash has shades of blonde, creams and light browns.) My kitchen walls are painted a "spring grass green" color; which I like but am not against repainting. Our countertops are run of the mill laminate in an off white/very very light beige speckled color. Our appliances are black with some stainless steel accents (front of fridge and top of range) Are you cringing yet?Ok, so now comes the hard part; painting the cabinets. The parts of the kitchen that will stay are the cabinets, appliances and floors; the counters will eventually be replaced and we will add a backsplash of some kind. I really want to paint the cabinets an off white, almost beige color (like Natural Wicker.) Assuming the countertops are replaced I would like something in the chocolate family. Will all this clash with the black appliances? Should I just paint the cabinets a shade of white white instead? And then go for a charcoal/black countertop? The latter seems to me to coordinate better, but I love browns, chocolates, and creams. And then there's the question of the backsplash. I was thinking a subway tile. Any input you can give would be so much appreciated! Thank you. http://jatjxnidco.com [url=http://cnjneccnl.com]cnjneccnl[/url] [link=http://anloqmfhup.com]anloqmfhup[/link]
