A few years ago, my wife and I moved into our dream home in a dream neighborhood. Everything was great except the kitchen, which we thought was serviceable until we realized that the cabinets were turning to particle board dust and the drop ceiling was collapsing. We lived with it as long as we could, but a year ago finally bit the bullet and hired a designer. We knew and shared what we wanted, but when his designs came back they were way off the mark, and honestly way outside our budget. At that point, we took matters into our own hands and hired a contractor and went to a number of kitchen and tile stores for bids.
Surprisingly, what we found was that Home Depot (honestly) had an amazing designer that really listened to us (patiently) and shared some very cool new products. I know this is going to sound like a HD commercial, but we loved the results. We bought our appliances at a high end store and the farm sink at Ferguson, but this ended up being our dream kitchen without having to go crazy with custom.... We've sent (skeptical) neighbors to HD since and they've yet to disappoint. It may just be our local design lady...who knows, but this just goes to show you that you don't have to go broke for an amazing space.

Originally, a G-shaped kitchen that basically divided my kitchen in half & only used 1/2 the space. I have totally gutted it, designed a new layout that would utilize the entire space. Created a lot more storage, along with more convenient functions, like pull out drawers, single basin sink & taller faucet. New floor, more lighting that I installed myself. I had a very small budget but I feel I got a "Bang For Your Bucks". And even though I've designed every inch of it and had a pretty good idea of how everything would look, the finished project actually turned out much more beautiful than I ever imagined. This has been a very rewarding experience.

transitional kitchen style. i spent a lot of time pricing and revising plan to achieve a custom kitchen look without the price tag. because i love to cook but hate to clean, function was just as important as aesthetics. behind pocket door (left of ovens) is my pantry with custom looking cabinets and wood countertops (home depot unfinished cabinets w/ trim molding added and salvaged wood countertops) w/ built-in microwave and prep sink. (photos to come- need to paint cabs)

Our old galley kitchen lacked counter space, storage and room to move around. We knocked out the wall between the kitchen and dining room to create a large eat-in kitchen. In keeping with the historic elements of our home, we chose classic style cabinetry, soapstone counter top, and cupboard latches. Our walnut island is created to look like furniture and is topped with Calcutta marble. The island also features a cook top and pop up venting system.
We updated the space with SS appliances, chrome finishes and lots of recessed lighting.
Our personalities were added with modern crystal pendants [bling for me!] and chrome and leather stools [Wall Street masculine for the hubby]. The random width mosaic marble tile back splash pulls it together.
To save money, husband installed wiring and lighting, cabinets, back splash, baseboards and crown molding. The hardware was found at closeout pricing, the appliances at 'scratch and dent' outlets.
Custom cabinetry and amazing customer service can be found at Flegel Woodcraft.

We completely transformed our old builder grade kitchen by painting the oak cabinets(with rustoleum cabinet transformation kit) a rich chocolate color and adding crown molding. We replaced the countertops with granite, and added a new sink and faucet. We also put in a split face travertine mosaic tile backsplash as well as redid the flooring in a versaille pattern with ceramic tile. The only thing we contracted out was the granite.

This kitchen was so ugly before! This was a 1920's home with a 1970's blue formica kitchen. So it was neither "vintage" to the 20's or current to today's styles. It was tragically stuck in the middle! I designed the kitchen panels to replicate the panel molding throughout the house. This helped it to blend a brand new kitchen in a very old home.
