Wondrous Kitchen Renovation

The kitchen has become the renovation of choice when updating a home, not only because we spend most of our time in it, but a properly designed kitchen will also pay back your investment when selling your home. In recent years, kitchens have started being seen as much more than just a room with cabinets and appliances for preparing food; designer kitchens are treated as spaces for gathering, with cabinets that integrate into your home like furniture (Europeans have been calling kitchen cabinets “furniture” for years), appliances that become a part of the design, and overall beauty so great that you no longer need to hide kitchens in their own rooms.

Since a kitchen renovation is probably one of the biggest and most detailed investments for a homeowner, it is advised to work with a professional to plan and oversee the whole renovation. In this month’s home renovation feature, besides looking at the “before” and “after” changes of a kitchen, we will also take a closer look at the renovation process, from planning to designing to completion.

What Can an LCD Television Do For Me?

Jul 16, 2008 by BiglarKinyan Design Partnership Inc.

As much as we try to deny it, a big part of modern life is the television and our interactions that surround it. When it’s time to restyle your home, you may want to make room for a big screen TV, but your layout may not allow it. Large televisions often have bulky profiles, but Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) televisions solve that problem.
