Kitchen of the Week! Unique combination of Audaux Granite on the islands and Emerstone Carrara Wave Quartz on the perimeter. When the Johnsons saw the Audaux granite there was just no going back. Love how this whole kitchen turned out. Such beautiful craftsmanship throughout thanks to Andersen Design Group, Inc.!

If your cabinets are in good condition, but your counters maybe not so much...consider replacing the counter, and if needed painting the cabinets.  

 
Its amazing how much a new counter, little paint, and new handles/pulls  can transform your whole kitchen, without breaking the bank! 
 
Here are some examples:

Notice in the kitchen above they added an Island, they simply used an old table base! 
Inexpensive and attractive!  Paint it with an accent color, add some spice to your kitchen!

In the photo above, they used the same type of handles, just in a different color! Nice updated look!
 
We recommend to customers to take a look at Houzz, Pintrist, or Google it to get ideas. For example if you have oak cabinets, and you want a dark counter...then type in oak cabinets with black, brown, dark etc and browse thru the images to get ideas. 
 
Consider new backsplash as well,even if its completed in the future. 
 
With a new counter, backsplash and knobs/pulls you can achieve the look of a brand new kitchen without breaking the bank! 
 
Make your kitchen a place you look forward to spending time in with family and friends!

Kitchen of the Week! The Kirk kitchen stuns with Cambria's Britannica Quartz. The care and attention taken at the Digital Slab Layout stage really paid off, as the slab's movement is captivating. #kitchenoftheweek

So often a contractor pushes a customer to select a backsplsah as they would like to wrap up the project and move on. 
 
However, after all you have gone thru to get to this point...why rush the final detail? We suggest you take your time with this part of the process. Wait until your counters are installed to be sure your selection meets your expectations. A backsplash should not be installed until the counters are completed as it sits on top of the counters, so whats the rush anyway!?
 
Keep in mind the items that will live on your counter such as toaster, knives, oils etc as these items add visual clutter to the backsplash. 
 
Select the samples you are interested in, once your counter is installed grab some thumb tacks and tack them to the wall and live with them. Seeing things in your lighting, your environment is key to being sure what one is right for you! 
 
Wanting an inset behind the stove? Sketch it out on the wall, get yourself some painters tape and tape out different sizes to see what works for you. If you have drywall, feel free to get a pencil and sketch the design out. Just do a small area to get the idea! 
 
Huge tip: be sure your tile installer uses silicone NOT grout where the tile meets the counter. Otherwise as your house "breathes" the grout will start chipping out and it gets messy. The silicone will breathe with the house as it is more flexible and you will have a cleaner longer lasting look! 
 
Be sure to have fun with the process, if you find it too frustrating, perhaps it's who you are working with rather than the selection, a good designer should make the process fun and exciting!

Kitchen of the Week! The Tucker Kitchen may still be a work in progress, but already looks beautiful. We're finishing up an arabesque backsplash there today and Negresco Polished tops there this week. Hope to see photos once the new floors go in and the cabinets are refinished! #kitchenoftheweek
