Cumming Kitchen Remodel

   AK's wonderful clients in Cumming, Georgia were looking to renovate their nice, but generic, kitchen. Top on their list were new appliances, more storage as well as classically elegant tile and cabinetry updates! AK designed a space that suited each of their unique needs and desires for the space. The end result is a gorgeous kitchen that is tailor made for the family that lives there while it still has a universal appeal for the home's future resale value!
    What do you think of this simply elegant new kitchen?

  Sea Foam Green & Turquoise are hot colors in fashion, paint, fabrics and...sinks! Kohler's collection with Jonathan Adler features some fun and unique enamels over cast iron that can be used in the kitchen or bathroom!

  Eco-Friendly products used to include everything but...well, you guessed it. But now even the kitchen sink can be environmentally conscious. This apron sink is made of bamboo! Lenova so far seems to have the corner on this unique 13-step process; find out more at http://www.lenovasinks.com/


 And the color charge moves to the bathroom! The Vola HV1 mixer faucet makes a bold statement in a place dominated by metal! Why not add some unexpected canary yellow to your powder room? It might get your guests talking!

Have You Met The GE Cafe Series?

   Earlier this year, GE introduce the Cafe Series Energy Star French Door Refrigerator with Hot Water Dispenser! (Available in Counter-Depth for $3099) This new refrigerator series by GE has a nice profile and a high-end look! The water and ice dispenser is an LCD touch-screen, and it comes with 4 pre-set hot water temperature settings but also allows you to customize it. We really like the large dispensing niche: suitable not only for cups and mugs but also pots, kettles, etc.
  GE says that aside from the new hot water feature their filtration system is also unique! "Water is purified through the only refrigeration filter tested and verified to remove 98% of five trace pharmaceuticals from water and ice, offering added peace of mind for your family."
   We've heard from some consumers they think this will become a "Top Of Mid-Range" refrigerator contender. We've heard the interior configuration and self-close doors are well designed. Finally, for the new parents (or grandparents) out there we've also heard the hot water feature is FABULOUS for making formula baby bottles!
    What have you heard?

An AK Home Tour

Our friends at Hometalk.com are showing off some virtual "Home Tours" this month! It got us to thinking about A LOT of our projects, but this one came to mind first. AK worked on this home a number of years back with renovations starting from the front door! Take a look at the home before AK got to work:
The Home Tour - BEFORE

 Dated, enclose, insufficient lighting...Just a few of the complaints the homeowner had about the space! They needed some specific products for their animal-friendly home but they didn't want to sacrifice style or quality!
 

 

The Home Tour - AFTER


 Just look how open the space is without the pantry! New floors, lighting and a total kitchen remodel change the look, feel and function of the home. Now the family can gather & entertain with their furry family members in tow.

 (A new refrigerator & dishwasher were to be phase II of this project)


 No more old, worn tiles and ripped wall-paper; a venetian plaster wall finish, stone-looking tile, granite and solid wood are the ultimate in quality!
