The Basics for Kitchen Style and Design

Jay Johnson - We're remodeling our kitchen over the winter holidays, and our family probably won't be able to cook a proper meal again until later in February. What about your kitchen ... or your client's kitchen? Are you happy with its present style, range of appliances, countertops, flooring, task lighting, and seating? My sister Julia Broder, the Fairfield County CT real estate broker, just told me that she sold a client's home and they bought it based on her fab kitchen design - it was a simple black-and-white kitchen with crisp black marble countertops and a black-and-white checkerboard floor. Although the kitchen was done 10 years ago, it looks fresh and appealing.

I liked the following House to Home video because it gives not only great country kitchen design ideas, but it also gives you a template for how to think about any kitchen style, from country chic to streamlined Euro modern.
