Revamping Our Kitchen– BIG Announcement!

Remember how I’ve been talking about sprucing up our kitchen cabinets for the past year? First, I wanted to paint them. Then, I came to the realization that I despise painting furniture so I decided I would hire someone to paint them. Well for once my procrastination paid off because I was recently contacted by the good people at Home Depot about participating in their Replace, Reface, Renew kitchen cabinet program through their Design Connect services. You better believe I let out my signature “Whhhaaaat!?!” after opening the email. I also may or may not have jumped up and down like a 13 year old girl at a Justin Beiber concert when I told Brad the news.

So here’s the skinny. We’re getting our kitchen cabinets refaced! (Picture me shrieking while jumping up and down.)

What’s refacing, you ask? The existing cabinet doors, drawers, and drawer fronts are removed. Wood or laminate veneer is adhered to the existing cabinets and frames. Then the new doors, drawers, drawer fronts, and hardware is installed. It’s perfect for those who like the layout of their current kitchen. The transformation typically takes between 3-5 days so refacing is great for those who don’t want to live without a kitchen for an extended period of time. Less than a week for a brand spanking new looking kitchen? Sign. Me. Up.

Now, let’s review the current state of our cabinets.

They’re builder-grade, honey oak cabinets. We’re not a fan of the color. Plus there’s too much wood going on in there with the cabinets and the laminate wood flooring. I want our kitchen to be bright and airy, and I think we’ll accomplish that by refacing the cabinets white. The white cabinets will bounce more light off of them than our current cabinets, maximizing the small amount of light we get through our one kitchen window.

I also don’t care for the 12 inches of random space above the cabinets. I know some people like this space because they can display their kitchenware or decorate it to their liking. However, I’m not in that camp. I think the kitchen would look taller if the cabinets went all the way to the ceiling.

If you haven’t noticed yet, our cabinets are missing hardware. I know hardware isn’t an absolute necessity, but it’d be nice to not have to pry doors and drawers open with our fingers.

I love our kitchen island, besides the color. It’s crazy to think the original floor plan didn’t have an island so I’m happy the people we bought the house from added it. In a perfect world, I’d like to add a bookcase on the end of the island so I can display my cookbooks and vintage kitchenware. I think the bookcase would make the kitchen look more custom-made.

    To create my perfect kitchen would involve knocking down a wall and adding more cabinets and counter space. I would also love to add a bead board back splash and new counter tops. *sigh* One day….

    1. With Home Depot’s high-end refacing, you can maximize the space in your kitchen so you don’t need more cabinets – and they do back splash and counter tops as well!

  2. Barb Hesselgrave says:

    Your kitchen looks a lot like mine with the oak cabinets and laminate flooring. Yes, too much wood going on. Will be fun to watch the transformation.

  3. Such exciting news! I think your kitchen looks lovely now – can’t wait to see it with a little facelift. I’m still renting so I haven’t yet allowed myself to dream about my perfect kitchen… thinking about it now, it would probably be a lot of wood, open shelves, and a massive island where you can sit and work.

  4. Remodeling my kitchen is on my long list of things to do. Luckily my kitchen is large but there is no island. I would add an island, replace the cabinets we had to take out, and make the cabinets taller, like you–I have drywall–so that would have to come out. I love lighter cabinets and have dark 1970s ones right now. Yuck. And orange countertop–double yuck. I also would like a subway tile back splash and a tile floor.
    I can’t wait to see your transformation!

  5. Currently, my kitchen is not changeable (apartment life = BOO) – however we are going through the process of buying a home = YAY! The kitchen that it currently has is limited by size, but is a great start! To perfect it I would add some nice hardware (like you it doesn’t have any) and I would add some paint about the backsplash because aside from the cabinets and counter – its WHITE!! Hello open canvas!

  6. Elizabeth F. says:

    We have a similar kitchen look- oak cabinets with too much room above them that I dislike, and also some so-so tile. We also had to do some renovations to the slider that leads onto the deck (I am so thankful for that wall of sunlight!), so it badly needs painting and overall finishing. I would love to paint our cabinets and add new hardware, add beadboard to the island, and paint!

  7. New cabinets are the first thing on my list for a kitchen re-do! Ours are currently metal, that had been painted black many years ago. The drawers stick, which drive me crazy.

  8. I love my kitchen layout, but the cabinets are from the 70’s so if I could I would replace/renew them in white as well. They are SO DARK!!! I saunter through the kitchen displays every time I am in Home Depot wistfully touching all the smooth glossy cabinets. Someday!

    Congrats on getting your builders grade updated!

    1. Shannon Dewease says:

      I would get a bigger oven, perhaps a double one?

  9. Wow! What an awesome opportunity!! I can’t wait to see how it comes out!

    I’ve got a rental kitchen so there hasn’t been much work done to it but our landlord is great and willing to let us make updates as we choose. A backsplash, some fresh paint, and new hardware would make a huge difference. I’d love to knock down a wall too but that’s a little bit unrealistic for our current situation.

  10. All I need is a little paint and some butcher block counters to make my kitchen into my dream kitchen! I had read something about Home Depot’s cabinet resurfacing, so I’ll be looking forward to seeing how yours turns out!

  11. We’re house shopping right now, and the home that is our front-runner has a nice kitchen, but it could certainly use some upgrades. My ideas include upgrading to a gas range, installing hardwood flooring, painting the existing cabinets white (they’re in great condition), replacing the old country/rustic style hardware with something more modern, and adding an island to the center of the kitchen. For reference, the layout is almost exactly like yours, but instead of an eat-in space, there is a wall of huge windows that look out onto the backyard, which I love. Oh, and we definitely need to switch out the peeling laminate counters for some kind of light grey stone (maybe granite, maybe something else)…

    Whew, I’m tired just writing that all down! Can’t wait to see your kitchen’s transformation!

  12. I think I’m in the same boat as you, I love the layout of our kitchen, but I’d love the kitchen a lot more if the cabinets were white. It would really brighten the space. Of course a few new appliances, new lighting, and new countertops wouldn’t hurt either 😉

  13. I bought a bungalow last year that has the white cabinets I so longed for but to give it the country cottage vintage look I love, I would replace the counter tops with wood and replace the floor with black and white tile. Oh I can’t wait to see your do-over! Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. Brenda B. says:

    My kitchen needs new countertops–they are”yellow” 1982 & the cabinets need the same thing as your’s.. I would love them to be white!

  15. I would love lighter cabinets, double ovens, gas range and new floors!

  16. Jessica Wise says:

    My perfect kitchen would have white cabinets on the bottom half. These would consist of mostly drawers, that all “slow-close”. Up top I would not have any cabinets. I would possibly have a few open shelves, but mostly all windows, so I get a LOT of natural light. My backsplash would be sea glass blue colored subway tiles, and my counter tops would be butcher block wood. I would want very minimalist streamline stainless appliances, and very cool light fixtures above my island with Edison bulbs. To top it off I would have hardly anything sitting out (toaster oven, mixer, juicer, etc. ) it would all have a usable space hidden from view like a specific drawer or cabinet that its made to fit. I would love to win the gift card!

  17. Heather Nowak says:

    If I could revamp my kitchen, I would paint my cabinets white also. 🙂

  18. WOW! What an amazing situation. Cannot wait to see the transformation!

    If we had the $$ to redo our kitchen, I’d knock out our old yellow tile countertops and backsplash, and replace with something more modern, and easier to clean!

  19. Liza Glick says:

    I am dying to get new cabinets and counter tops!

  20. I’m dreaming of a white kitchen! My cabinets aren’t that bad on their own and I have TONS of space– I’m just in love with white kitchens. Next I would add hardware to all the drawers and cabinets because I’m also tired of prying them open (the drawers are especially heavy) My kitchen is in need of a cute back-splash since we have none at all. My future kitchen will have a double oven, gas range, and drawers that have the slow-close so that kids can’t slam them shut!
    I’m so excited to see the reveal of your new kitchen!

  21. We are also currently wanting to to redo our kitchen in our new house. Adding back splash to yours would really make it “pop”

  22. My current house doesn’t have enough space to create my *perfect* kitchen, but I’d be thrilled with updated cabinets, floor and backsplash in this house’s kitchen. Next house…dream kitchen…white cabinets, stainless appliances, NO crappy laminate flooring/countertop and lots of storage/pantry/more than 3 drawers for the whole kitchen!
    Can’t wait to see your updates!

  23. I’m afraid my perfect kitchen would only come by completely demolishing my current kitchen and adding a ton of space! I’d love a huge island and a ton of drawer space! Dark wood cabinets would be great, too 🙂

  24. Michelle W. says:

    I would create my perfect kitchen by replacing my yellow-green countertops! I am sure they looked good in the 70s! 🙂

  25. I’m planning on having my carpenter husband build me all new cabinet doors and drawers because I really like inset style cabinetry instead of the overlay. After everything is built I plan on painting them a light gray to lighten things up from the dark brown oak. New countertops are also a must, I plan on going with quartz for it’s high end look and durability.

  26. My dream kitchen would have high end appliances!

  27. Amanda C. says:

    New-looking cabinets?! YES, please! I’d also replace our countertops & add a pretty subway tile backsplash : )

  28. I hate my kitchen. Late 90’s bisque colored laminate cabinets. I want to redo them SO BADLY!!!! I’d go white, white, white!

  29. I like the layout of our kitchen too, but the finishes suck. I want to change the look of the cabinets, and I need new flooring. I would love a subway tile backsplash.

  30. Love your idea of adding a bookcase to the end of the island! Our kitchen is quite small and we don’t have a dining room, just a very small eat in area, so in order to create my perfect kitchen, I think we’d have to do a small addition to the back of the house where the kitchen/dining area is. That would make our kitchen bigger and give us the dining room we want/need! Not a cheap fix, but with the small space, that’s the only thing I can think of 🙂

  31. We have builder grade everything in our home as well and I’d love to change out the color of our cabinets! I want to to look clean and crisp… Not dingy and dark!

  32. I would love to resurface our cabinets and get a new stove.

  33. Stainless everything + dark floors and espresso-colord cabinets. A girl can dream, right?

  34. I would love new flooring and countertops in our kitchen, and to make one wall a half wall and add a bar!

  35. Stephanie P says:

    To create my perfect kitchen I’d def. change my cabinets from honey oak to white. I’d also add a backsplash between the bottom of my cabinets and my countertop. Updating all the appliances from bisque to stainless steel would be nice as well.

  36. Awesome!! I am gearing up to paint my kitchen cabinets now…taking a week off of work to do it :)) But I am nerrrrrvous. I would also love to rip out our two pantries and create a giant walk in pantry…someday!

  37. yay for a kitchen makeover! I’d love to redo my kitchen floors, the subfloor probably needs to be replaced so we’re putting it off for a while….then I’d put in new appliances and a new backsplash. My counters and cabinets are pretty decent so i’d just work around them 🙂

  38. I would also love to refinish our cabinets but the time and energy is so daunting, ha! I would also give my right arm for new counter tops, bye bye laminate!

  39. That is AWESOME for you! I would also love to heighten our cabinets–maybe add a trim along the top? Or just build them up higher? I think that would really step ours up! I also have thought it would be cool to add beadboard or board + batten along the outside of our ‘island’ (not really an island, just the opposite side of the counter/cabinets that faces outward) to add a nice detail.

  40. We have the same cabinets! I would love to have the bottoms refinished in a dark wood and replace the top cabinets with tall white ones. Maybe some glass fronts on one or two. A girl can dream…

  41. I’ve been longing (as in 4 years longing) to install a backsplash to our kitchen as well as add some hardware to our cabinets. BTW, can’t wait to see what your kitchen will look like after the cabinets are refaced!

  42. I am very fortunate to have a great kitchen layout and nice cabinets – although not the exact shade of stain I would have chosen on my own. On the wish list would be to add a couple of glass front doors to break up the stretch of wood and add a backsplash with under cabinet lighting. A girl can dream right?

  43. Caitlin S. says:

    I would LOVE to redo our kitchen. It’s the one room in our new house that needs some serious love. Our hope is to completely tear down what is in there (very cheap cabinets and chipped counters) for a brand new look. We’re hoping to DIY a good portion of it and would love for it to happen sometime soon!

  44. I would first repaint the cabinets white. I would add a backsplash on the walls behind the sink and cooking area. And I would love to have a pantry for more shelving and food space.

  45. I would definitely stain our cabinets a darker shade to create my perfect kitchen! I love our kitchen, but the cabinets could definitely use some updating.

    Can’t wait to see your kitchen updates!

  46. Ah! This would be awesome to do! How much does something like this cost? Our kitchen is definitely an area in our home that needs to be redone. Besides the fact that the appliances are 100 years old (hey they still work and I don’t have the budget for new ones so they’ve got to stay), we also have the builder grade cabinets with no hardware. I would love to paint the cabinets but depending on price I might look into refacing them. We really don’t have that many cabinet doors/drawers. If I won the HD gift card I would either put it towards new appliances, fix our leaky sink or put it towards updating the cabinets. We actually have a little one on the way so any budget we were saving is now going to the nursery. Oh priorities!

  47. I swear I have the exact same kitchen cabinets. I used to love the finish but now it looks dated. I would probably go dark for my cabinets if I could. I can’t wait to see the finished product. 🙂

  48. My husband and I own a tiny townhouse that has similar color cabinets. They are super basic, but new. However, I’ve always DREAMED of a white cabinet kitchen! And like you, I’d like to get rid of that space between the top of my cabinets and the ceiling – so hard to decorate! We also want to put in laminate or wood flooring, but I refuse to do so until our cabinets are white b/c otherwise it’s too much wood on wood. Basically, I’m in the exact same situation as you! I totally get your excitement! Your kitchen will look great!

  49. Janalyn H. says:

    I would put a backsplash up in my kitchen. I would love it!!!

  50. Definitely would want to replace my old cabinets (they are oak) and upgrade to granite.

  51. Our kitchen was put in when our house was built-somewhere around 1973. We don’t have a dishwasher. We have 12 inches of what looks like a bulkhead above the cabinets-there is nothing in it. Our cabinets are dark espresso colored wood with a white speckled laminate counter top. We have a brick back splash. I honestly don’t know what the people who installed this where thinking! We still have our oven from the 1970s but everything else is just crumbling. It’s on our short list to re-do it! Did I mention that we don’t have a dishwasher??!

  52. Our kitchen is a hot mess, but thankfully it’s only a rental. If I had the chance to redo it, I would add more counter space and more cabinets/shelves.

  53. Kristin M says:

    My perfect kitchen would have white cabinets and a new counter top that is NOT blue! Living in a perfect world I would also have hardware!

  54. I have a boyfriend who is currently building a duplex for means of income. He would really benefit from some major support for ideas in how to design and implement the kitchen.

    Revamp yours too!- via @Shareaholic Great promo to win giftcard from homedepot! be sure to share! #sweepstakesentry— coll (@colormecoll29) August 5, 2013

  55. Michelle I says:

    New countertops for sure and an island!

  56. We just purchased a 70s age home and would love to have some cash from Home Depot to redo the outdated kitchen. We need new countertops and to remove the peninsula to add counter space and a more usable kitchen. This would be so helpful in started the kitchen revamp!

  57. White cabinets and butcher block counters are a must in my dream kitchen!

  58. We’re moving into our first home shortly and I love the current kitchen, but down the line would like to repaint the cabinets white, update the hardware, and add a sea-glass subway tile backsplash and accent wall. I’m so excited for you!

  59. Creating the perfect kitchen would involve a bigger house because it’s not my dream layout, but for now, we definitely want to update the cabinets (replace or paint), install a new counter top, and get an island with big drawers instead of cabinets. I can’t wait to get started!

  60. I would get rid of our fluorescent lighting and reface our cabinets! Countertops and flooring are original 1960’s swag, so those would go for sure!

  61. To create my ultimate kitchen in our current home I would paint the cabinets white, add a built in L shaped bench, probably repaint the walls , add granite countertops, re upholster our dining chairs and add window treatments. Whew! Im sure there are probably a few more projects that I could come up with but that’s a good start 🙂 Would love to win the gift card!

  62. If I had room, I would love an island in my kitchen…and more drawers. I like my current kitchen, but the person who designed it used mostly cabinets, with very few drawers; a different mix would be better.

  63. My kitchen is very similar to yours and I want to do the same thing! Paint our oakey cabinets white and remove the white tile counter tops and replace them with white marble! My kitchen is where I spend the most of my time, so I’d love to turn it into my dream!

  64. Say What!!!?!?! That is SO exciting! We just had our cabinets redone last year, but if I won I would paint our kitchen and put in a new floor. Love love love this post and I can’t wait to see your new kitchen!

  65. My kitchen is close to exactly how we want it…..we painted our cabinets white when we first moved in!!!! To make my kitchen even more perfect we would add panels and moulding to take the cabinets to the ceiling, make our island bigger and add great bars tools for a perfect place to gather! 🙂

  66. Honestly, we could probably just start our kitchen from scratch. New cabinets would be great! I think realistically we will get rid of the wallpaper, add butcher block counter tops, update our sink, and add new hardware to the cabinets.

  67. I am in such need of a kitchen revamp. I would like to repaint my outdated cabinets and replace my tile countertops.

  68. Ginny Pokorny says:

    So happy for you! I also have been procrastinating about my kitchen cabinets as well!

  69. I’d add some customizations to upgrade my builder grade trims and revamp my pantry with custom built in shelving.

  70. Right now, I’m renting an apartment and the kitchen is the worst room in the place. It DESPERATELY needs to be renovated. The cabinets are cheap particleboard, the sink is caving in (that particle board under the countertop is disintegrating), tiles are missing on the floor, they took out a radiator and left put clear plastic tape over the holes/pipes, and the paint on the pantry walls is falling off. It’s bad!

    Basically I would love to have a new sink, new floor and a bit more counter space. Obviously new paint would work wonders as well.

  71. OooooOOOOo! A perfect kitchen for me would be a farm house sink, subway tile backsplash, open shelving (filled with Anthropologie dishes), and French herringbone wood floors. Thanks for hosting this awesome giveaway! 🙂

  72. right now I can’t totally re do our kitchen, we are in a house for my husbands job. BUT they said I could do whatever I wanted if I did the work. So I can’t go BIG but I can make it look nicer 🙂 So, my plans are to paint the current laminant tiles. They are super dingy white pink and blue stick on floor tiles… Not the prettiest. But one day I hope to have a kitchen with lots of counter space, cabinet space, a farm house sink, and a BIG window above it 🙂

  73. My perfect kitchen would include transforming an existing non-load bearing wall into an eat in island which would create the “great room” feel. I would also remove the cracking tile floor and replace it with wood throughout the entire 1st level to create a uniform look. I have also dreamed about a breakfast nook….

  74. Julie Robertson says:

    To create my perfect kitchen I would either have to raze my house and rebuild or move to another house. 🙂 To remodel my current kitchen so that I like it better I would love to: remove the carpeting (carpeting does NOT go in a kitchen!) and replace it with cork, redesign the placement of cabinets and have them go all the way to the ceiling, perhaps add a bay window area off the south wall to add more space, a new more modern kitchen sink, a new dishwasher, add awesome organizational elements, and paint the walls and cabinets some nice open, airy, and cheery colors. Thanks for the chance to start doing this!

  75. brianna peterson says:

    A perfect kitchen remodel for my family would be refinishing our kitchen table and chairs and adding a much needed desk area since the kitchen is the main room in our house and where we spend most of our time. a new dishwasher wouldnt be bad either 😉

  76. My kitchen cabinets need refacing too! We are hoping to do it sometime in the near future!

  77. My kitchen needs new appliances and new, bright back splash to make the room pop!

  78. I would love to change the color of my kitchen cabinets…and add a second oven. Brighten things up a bit, you know?

    I can’t wait to see what you do!

  79. I would paint my cabinets either white or super dark. My kitchen is bright already so I think that it could handle anything. My floor matches my cabinets too, so that needs to change. I need a new fridge too!

  80. I am so happy for you! What a blessing! Cannot wait to see how your new kitchen looks!

  81. How awesome is it that you get to participate in this!? Lucky lady! Our kitchen is similar to your except our fridge is on the right of the stove.

    I have been DREAMING of refacing or painting our kitchen cabinets. We also don’t have hardware (well, we have it sitting in a bag in the laundry room waiting to be added). I would love white cabinets and dark counters, and a farmhouse sink. I love the look of white and feel like it really brightens up the kitchen. Like you I’d love to add a bookcase to the end of our island. It gives the kitchen a special touch I think.

    Can’t wait to see how yours tursn out!

  82. If I could revamp my kitchen it would consist of new floors and an updated paint job.

  83. Kayla Beltz says:

    I would revamp my kitchen and add a few glass cabinet doors! I love the airy-ness of glass!

  84. We would LOVE to paint our cabinets a distressed white in the kitchen!! I can’t wait to see the results of your resurfacing!

  85. Since we rent right now, there is not much we could do, but I would love to add a backsplash, paint the cabinets, and get new counter tops if we were able! The layout is pretty okay for us right now, just needs a little facelift!

  86. Brittany D says:

    I’m in the same boat you are, with those honey oak cabinets. I desperately want to update the color of the cabinets (refacing or replacing) and upgrade the flooring. I’m looking forward to seeing your transformed cabinets!

  87. Refacing would be perfect for our kitchen! It’s a small area so we don’t really have a choice on changing the layout. My cabinets are honey oak colored (YUCK!) and our lovely countertop is off white tile with salmon pink grout (YUCK, YUCK!!) We have lived with it since we moved in several years ago since the kitchen reno always seems to get put on the back burner for one reason or another and I am so embarrassed to have people over. I need this makeover!

  88. What an amazing opportunity you’ve been given! Hubby and I tackeled this project ourselves and it was a daunting task, but we’re so excited for the payoff. It’s such a transformation, however it’s not done yet. We still have to do our countertops and sink and then faucets, but we’re so close! I would definitely use that money for our faucets and towards our counters. Enjoy the process!!!

  89. melissa tichy says:

    oh i could use that gift card…..our house needs help!!!

  90. What an awesome giveaway, and I love your kitchen! We live in an apartment right now, so I don’t have a lot of options for giving my kitchen a makeover, but if I could build a kitchen from scratch I would make sure it was big, open to the other rooms in the house, had open uppers, had an island, and a big double sink!

  91. Very awesome project! That is a big one and I bet you cannot wait to get started on it. Our cabinets are pretty great, now the back splash? That needs a total makeover. Maybe I can do it soon.
    Great to see you at Haven, I hope you have recovered!

  92. I’m so excited to see what you pick for cabinets! Ours are very very similar – the builder grade oak. If I won, I’d re-do ours with white cabinets with some glass pane, lit cabinets to show off my colorful Fiestaware. I’d also probably do a nice, clean white subway tile backsplash underneath. Oh and upgrade my appliances to match, and be all stainless steel.

  93. Hmmm. My kitchen is pretty awesome right now, but it doesn’t have granite counter tops or soft close drawers. I guess I would add those. Thank you

  94. HOLY COW!! That is amazing that Home Depot reached out to you. I’d be squealing, too! Can’t wait to see this come together!

    What would I do with 1,000? I would totally put in a kitchen in our barn apartment. Just a small kitchenette. Please PICK ME!

  95. We, too, have builder grade cabniets. I’d take that $1K as soon as I got and put it towards upgrades in the kitchen as we love the floor plan just not the finishes. Easy peasy changes that just need some $$$!

  96. I would love to repaint or resurface all the cabinets, retile the backsplash and install some open shelving over the stove. So much to do!

  97. Congrats on getting chosen for this gig! Can’t wait to see how it turns out. I actually have my “dream kitchen” in our new house, but one last thing that will make it “done” is a white subway tile backsplash. A $1,000 gift card sure would help towards that project 🙂

  98. Ooh this is amazing! We have been wanting to add/build a island in the middle of the kitchen/ I’d love new counters and to upgrade our cupboards. Thanks so much!

  99. For our kitchen I’d love new flooring to replace what looks like outdoor patio tile. New cabinets, new countertops to replace the originals from 1950!

  100. We just bought our first house. I would love to remove the dated mauve tile countertops, replace the original 1950’s scalloped cabinets and open up the wall between the dining room and kitchen and put in a huge island 🙂

  101. Congrats!! This is exciting news and I can’t wait to see what your new cabinets will look like. I’d love some new counters for our kitchen!

  102. I’d love a kitchen island! That’s one thing I miss about our previous house.

  103. Oh my word, the first thing I would want to do is get new tile! Ours is from the 60’s and an ugly orange brown color. I hate it. Then I would love to replace the cabinet doors and all the hardware. And get a new stove top.

  104. I have all the same complaints about my current kitchen and have been looking at the Home Depot options, so I cannot wait to see your ‘after’ photos!!!!

  105. Jenni Shaver says:

    We need new cabinets! Not just a reface. We have built-in-place cabinets that were poorly made. Most of the doors are broken and there is just no saving them. I also would love to tear down the wall between my kitchen and dinning room and add an island. This would go along way to getting us started!!

  106. I would paint my cabinets with the $$$ and maybe change the counters tops. Can’t wait to see your changes!!

  107. I would update my appliances, paint my cabinets, add hardware, add interior organization items, and change the laminate counter tops by adding the feather finish concrete on top.

  108. I am so excited to see your transformation because our kitchen cabinets look almost identical. Me needs me some hardware on my cabinets! Also, our counter top is a cross between grey and purple….bleh. So in an ideal kitchen, I would paint all our cabinets and get some marble going on. As well as backsplash…fun modern backsplash. If only saving was as easy as dreaming…. 🙂 Good luck!

  109. Oh the builder-grade oak cabinets! We have those too. Only problem is, only the doors are oak! The frames and boxes are all particle-board with cheap veneer! The last people to paint in here also, for some unknown reason, used packing tape to tape off the cabinets, which stripped huge ragged chunks of the veneer off of the cabinets. NOT the look I’m going for. The counters are just meh, I can live with them. But the cabinets. Seriously. I could live with everything else in there if only we could fix the cabinets!

  110. My perfect kitchen would have a large island, built in storage for cookbooks and 48″ cabinets!

  111. I have those awful builder grade honey oak cabinets too. My perfect/budget-friendly kitchen would involve refacing the cabinets and adding hardware, new countertops, and a backsplash. Window treatments would be nice too 🙂

  112. I can’t wait to see your new kitchen! I would love to put in new tile in our kitchen since the people we bought our house from didn’t do it correctly and it’s not cracking. I would also like to frame in our refridgerator with pantry cabinets for more storage.

  113. Cannot WAIT to see your finished product! I’m in the middle of hiring someone to paint my kitchen cabinets…I just cant stand all of the dark wood. Will have to look into this option as an alternative! Also, love your idea of adding a bookcase to the side of the island….I need something similar and have the perfect spot at the end of my bar, so I may have to steal that idea as well!

  114. anxiously awaiting the big reveal! I do love white kitchen cabinets! 😀

    1. Whoops, forgot to answer prompt for sweepstakes entry. To get a perfect kitchen, I would definitely get rid of the awkward space above my cabinets too (no purpose but to collect dust!) and would love to replace our current island (which is a odd, large, eight-sided island with limited storage space, due to it’s weird shape). And new appliances, obviously.

  115. i am looking at a house to purchase it has a small kitchen all brown oven built in the wall and stove top built in the cabinet top and a weird breakfast bar. I would like to bright it up shorten the breakfast bar and tile behind the cabinets make them a light pale blue.Put stainless or white appliances instead of black. Put a couple bar stools. I’m sure I could come up with more but waiing to make sure I’m going to get the house.

  116. Holy moly…what an awesome opportunity for you guys! I’m jumping up and down for you!!

    If I could, I’d replace our current cabinets. When we reno’ed the house, we took the walls down, laid new flooring, added new appliances and upgraded our countertops/backsplash…but we could NOT afford new cabinets. So we painted the old wood ones, and added new hardware. It worked for a bit, but the original cabinets from the 1950’s just aren’t holding up anymore. I’d be a dream to replace them with something brand-spankin’-new!!!

  117. My husband and I are currently in the process of refacing and replacing a lot. We’ve already had Home Depot come over. I’m pretty excited. I want new cool lights, flooring, counter, faucet etc. can’t wait.

  118. I would love to help my mom renovate her kitchen by replacing the cabinets and appliances.

  119. I could really use a kitchen facelift. Am looking forward to seeing yours!

  120. Congrats on the kitchen refacing! So happy for you. I would use the gift certificate to add a backsplash to my kitchen.

  121. There are so many things I want to do! Mostly though adding more cabinetry and changing out the door and drawer facings!

  122. Chels, our kitchen looks similar to yours! I am planning a repainting since ours are natural wood too. We just got a new fridge but still have the original 1985 stove so it would be amazing to get a matching stove! Plus i want gas instead of electric too. I as well don’t have hardware so hope to pull out our antique bronze from our light fixtures and new door knobs. I can’t wait to see pictures of yours and get some ideas!

  123. My perfect kitchen would have marble (countertops or backsplash) and a dishwasher! I am so ready to be done with hand washing our dishes. 🙂

  124. Ashley Clark says:

    Congrats on the kitchen re-do! I love any project that you can do a little DIY with – makes me feel soo much more resourceful! Thanks for offering the HD give away! Incredibly awesome of you! Good luck with the kitchen, I know it will look great!

    1. Ashley Clark says:

      PS: my kitchen re-do would consist of painting the ceiling tidewater (teal) along with teal glass subway tile as the backsplash!

  125. I would paint my cabinets, and add white subway tile as a backsplash. And slide out drawers for my pantry.

  126. I would looove white cabinets! Also, I have yet to put hardware on my drawers and cabinets as well!

  127. Oh, I so want a white kitchen!! Love, love, love the idea of a makeover!!!

  128. I would create my perfect kitchen by adding on to my house to have a bigger kitchen and add an island and a bar that is an open floor plan.

  129. we had the saaame cabinets! My dream kitchen? I’d get nice, lovely countertops (instead of laminate!) and new floors (instead of linoleum!) (ps: super nice meeting you at Haven!)

  130. My perfect kitchen would have tall white wooden cabinets, black granite counters, a large center island and a farmer’s sink.

  131. We are moving into a new home in a few weeks and we are immediately wanting to tackle our kitchen! It desperately needs some cabinet love and the backsplash ripped out! Not to mention new flooring and paint!!!

  132. Kimberly H says:

    Granite countertops is in my list of dream upgrades!

  133. So awesome that you are getting your cabinets refaced!! I can’t wait to see!!

    We have a small wall that separates our kitchen & living room. I’m dying to knock-out the wall & make room for a small island. I would love the extra counterspace, not only for preparing food, but for another eating surface! And if we knock out the wall, then I’m gonna need some new flooring!! 🙂

  134. Rosie Gum says:

    We just bought our first house about 8 months ago and I while I love the size of the kitchen, I wish the builders had not left any empty space at the top of the cabinets. I just have no idea on what to do with it! My perfect kitchen would have double ovens and either wood or granite countertops, and a hammered copper farmhouse sink. I’d also love pull out drawers instead of the lower cabinets and to convert our sliding door out to the patio into French doors.

  135. Oh my gosh!! This is the best news ever! I’m so excited to see how the kitchen turns out. I’m so glad you procrastinated. What an amazing opportunity! My dream kitchen has giant windows, open shelving, and amazing appliances…we will see how much of that stuff I actually get when it’s finished!

  136. Camiandavis says:

    Cabinets and counters. But definitely cabinets. Perfection would be a dishwasher though.

  137. Jillian H says:

    I would like to add some cabinet hardware in my kitchen first! And a new dishwasher!

  138. Lisa Brown says:

    My husband would be the one creating a new kitchen. He has a great eye for design. I would insist, though, on hardwood floors, wood cabinets, and stainless steel appliances.
    jslbrown_03 at yahoo dot com

  139. I would create the perfect kitchen by using the space I have, but moving things around a bit! Removing the connected island and making it free-standing would be the first thing I’d do!

  140. Can’t wait to see how it turns out! I’ve been considering this for my own kitchen.

  141. For my perfect kitchen, I would love new cabinets ,a breakfast nook and a new floor!!!

  142. For my kitchen, I would love to have butcher block counters and white cabinets, but I love the layout already.

  143. Whitney Moberg says:

    I would have to create a built-in bench around the kitchen table and have a big island in my dream kitchen!

  144. I can’t wait to see the finished product!

  145. My perfect kitchen would most certainly be bigger and have a new paint job! More cabinets and a pantry would be great!

  146. Oh let me tell you how bad we need a kitchen redo!! Our house was built in the 50’s and is all original – YEP we need a redo!! I think a new kitchen and a new baby would be perfect!

  147. To create a perfect kitchen I too would have cabinets that reach to the ceiling. I would also change my countertops to granite or another natural stone and change the hardware!

  148. Alas to make my dream kitchen would mean rearranging plumping as I have a U shaped kitchen area which doesn’t work when more than one person needs to get something out of the cabinets! Other than that, counter tops need to be replaced as they are white laminate!

  149. This is amazing and I seriously need some $$ to FINISH our kitchen!! I wanted to go white but the husband was against it–he said it would show dirt and messes too easily… is that the case?

  150. I wish my kitchen looked as great as yours. My cabinets are original from 1950. And they people we purchased from put in a bright pink 1950’s type booth. Not a lot matches with this.

  151. Brandy Ciaccia says:

    We just moved to a new house and replaced the bottom cabinets because they were a mess. The top ones are painted, the bottoms now unfinished. I have yet to decide what I want to do with them. If I had an unlimited budget I would love to knock down a wall that separates the kitchen and dining room to make one large space. But for now I’d be happy with cabinets that!

  152. Ann Brantley says:

    To revamp my kitchen, I would love to have the cabinets painted gray and get new countertops. The lovely cream colored laminate countertops really need to go!

    I’m excited to see how your cabinets turn out!


  153. So exciting about your new kitchen. I renovated my kitchen when I first bought my house and did white cabinets. It really does brighten up the space. Love your blog and your style! I am excited to see how the kitchen turns out!!

  154. To create my idea of a perfect kitchen, I think I need to move… It’s on the list of “must-haves” for home #2. But to have the perfect kitchen in my current house, it would take a little bit of work. I have dark wood cabinets that I like and a brick backsplash. What needs revamped is the flooring and the counter tops. I’d repaint the walls while I’m at it. We love our new stainless steel french door fridge, so a dishwasher and stove to match would be fantastic!

  155. I currently have no backsplash, counters that are sub par, and not nearly enough cabinet space in my 1990’s cabinets! Sounds like refacing my cabinets could be a great option!

  156. I really want to make a few tweaks to our kitchen. I really need a backslash (we have one of those half ones) and a pantry. Sometimes people just don’t understand what people need.

    Can’t wait to see what your kitchen looks like! So excited for you!

    I tweeted at

  157. I’m so excited to see how the refacing turns out!! And super excited about the sweepstakes.

  158. new kitchens are the best! Cant wait to see the finished product.

  159. Funny, we ARE in the process of tweaking our kitchen right now and we could really use some help! We had Home Depot come out to do the estimate for re-facing and at this time it just wasn’t in the budget. But, I LOVED all of the bonus pull outs that we could’ve added to the cabinets! So, we went with painting them white…it’s been quite a process. Next step will be a white Moroccan tile backsplash and then save a few more pennies and get the Carrara marble-esque countertop I’m drooling over!

  160. My kitchen needs a total redo, but I would be happy with refacing the cabinets, new countertop & floors. Nor asking for much, huh?

  161. Your kitchen is going to look great! I’d love to re-do my kitchen someday. Sigh. 🙂

  162. My kitchen will be perfect once we paint/reface the cabinets (from your pics it looks like we have the same cabinets….. ours also have no hardware…..) and knock out a wall to have a more open layout!

  163. My perfect kitchen would have beautiful dark stained cabinets and a solid surface counter top! These are Two things I would love to do to up grade my kitchen and a Home Depot Gift card could totally help! 🙂

  164. Actually my immediate kitchen plans include using the Cabinet Transformations to make my ugly oak cabinets dark brown and add hardware. Such a simple change that will make it look so much more classy! Can’t wait to see your end result!

  165. Jessie C. says:

    I would like a huge island with all stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. Double ovens, open shelving, big sinks.

  166. Jessie C. says:


  167. I would like to change the kitchen cabinets, flooring and add new stainless steel appliances

  168. two dishwashers so i never have to put dishes away!

  169. We desperately need new cabinets. They’re original from 1978, super cheap, and warped from moisture damage. Blegh!

  170. My dream kitchen would have a very large built in wine cabinet! And also a huge island that I could spread out baking tools on. Unfortunately we can’t do any major upgrades right now (still renting) but I have so many ideas about my future house!

  171. This post comes at a perfect time, I am collecting ideas to re-vamp my kitchen. My dream would be to paint/re-surface my current cabinets, re-arrange the layout along one wall and get marble or whiteish countertops, stainless steel appliances and a faucet that doesn’t leak. Not too much to ask for right? Well it is a dream kitchen, not actual life….

  172. My ultimate dream kitchen would definitely have to mean demolishing an outside wall and taking the whole thing into the backyard!! Every kitchen should have an island to lean up against, sit down at and just really be a focal point of “gathering”! My current kitchen is very small and we have no dining room, so the table is in the kitchen. Stone counters could be nice with glass tile backsplash and wood floors. I also like the two tone approach of dark on bottom and light on top, not necessarily white but maybe off-white to cream. Ahh, to dream!! Happy remodeling!

  173. Lisa Johnson says:

    Refacing would be the perfect solution for my kitchen. The cabinets and layout is nice, it is just toooooooooo dark! Even with all the windows in the nook and the adjoining family room, it is too dark. I also would love to replace the can lights and the huge pot rack over the island.

  174. If I could change anything about my kitchen I would add a tile backsplash (I just have drywall now). I have a peninsula and would love for it to be extended so there would be room for an extra barstool and maybe a bookshelf for my cookbooks.

  175. I am just in the process of purchasing my first house. This could help a long way in “updating” some things and really making it mine.

  176. Remember how we built our dream house, then had to move less than a year later? My beautiful rustic kitchen is now a sad honey oak from floor to ceiling. ~shivers~ You can bet the first thing I’d do is re-finish the cabinets! I already have it all picked out – Martha Stewart’s “chester”, with navy walls and new, more neutral counter tops. AND a copper farmhouse sink to match the only design aspect I do like – the three copper pendants.

    I want it so bad I can TASTE it!

  177. My perfect kitchen would have a breakfast nook booth – i think they are so cozy! Also, I’d have all energy efficient appliances. It would have an island, and a place to hang pots overhead to save cabinet space.

  178. What a great giveaway! We bought our house just about a year ago. The kitchen is definitely the biggest project on our list. I want to do a full gut job. I definitely considered doing the refacing of the cabinets but they are just so grungy and even with a good cleaning they still seem dirty. This money would totally help us out.

  179. Amy Orvin says:

    I would have my kitchen enlarged with great lighting and an island in the middle

  180. To beautify our kitchen, I would…paint (again), do more open shelves, backsplash tile, aaaaaand new countertops! 🙂

  181. Misty Goans says:

    I am trying to buy a home right now that the kitchen looks very much the same. The fist thing I said was that I would be painting the cabinets. I can’t wait to see how yours turns out.

  182. I’m loving the idea of a bookshelf on the end of the island. Maybe I’d add a bookshelf elsewhere, too. I’d also want deeper cabinets.

  183. Katherine Donovan says:

    My perfect kitchen would be a modern style. Right now I have oak cabinets, cheap laminate counters, and linoleum floors!! I love bright & fun decor. I can vision the cupboards being white or a slate gray with some AWESOME stone counters. The flooring would be a darker hardwood. The lighting is super important too. It can be like a piece of art. Something modern but fun and whimsical. Oh ya, and stainless steel appliances! 🙂

  184. We have a completely bare-bones, builder-grade kitchen…so I have A LOT I would do! First up would get rid of my nasty vinyl floors!

  185. You kitchen is going to look fantastic! For my kitchen I would gut it all and start over 🙂 I have already painted the cabinets and it looks better but my cabinets were built in 1962 and previous owners beat them up quite a bit so they must go!

  186. I would love a new stove!

  187. Jacqueline says:

    My perfect kitchen would have TONS of counter space, storage, and cabinets with an island and propane or natural gas appliances. So many dreams to put into one place!!

  188. We are in the process of re-doing our own kitchen (doing most of it ourselves) and would LOVE LOVE LOVE new countertops from Home Depot! Hoping we win! 🙂

  189. About anything would make my kitchen an improvement – I am so tired of the Oak cabinets, the laminate countertops, the mis-matched applicances, and the vinyl floor with stains and tears. A new stove though is at the top right behind painting the cabinets.

  190. Hardwood floors, painted cabinets… And a new sink (our’s is leaking)! 🙂

  191. So many things – a new faucet, organization help (baskets, etc.), shelf liner, etc.!

  192. I would love to reface my cabinets. We have wanted to do this or paint but we are retired and money and energy is just not there. Please, Please pick me as I never win anything and this would be the highlight of my life. Thank you for offering this special opportunity #SweepsakesEntry God Bless

  193. We were just talking about refacing as an option instead of our dream… knocking down walls and having a complete reno. I’m itching for a mini makeover though. Countertops, open shelving, clean subway tile.. oh my!

  194. I’d love to have new open front cabinets, flooring, and a new gas stove.

  195. New appliances! New counter tops. New sink and faucet. I’m pretty sure the counter area by our sink has been leaking water for a long time.

  196. I would so love to have some counter space!

    chambanachik at gmail dot com

  197. Lucky!!!! We desperately need a backsplash, but since I’m trying to make our tuscan kitchen feel more modern, I’m totally stumped on what to do.

  198. I would love new cabinets!

  199. To redo my kitchen I would have to rip it all out. It is all dark and very old and oh so tiny. Knocking down the wall to open space to the dining area, then have white wash color for cabinets, wooden floor and a much larger window. If you saw my kitchen you’d be wondering how I even like to cook in there ( I don’t ) It is actually an apartment I had to move into 13 years ago with 3 little daughters. I learned to cope with this kitchen, didn’t have any other choice lol. Should I win I do have permission to update my kitchen, you bet I’d jump right to it.
    Can’t wait to see yours 🙂

  200. Oh you are so lucky!!!!! wish refacing was an option for us, we have similar oak cabinets, but the flat plywood with exposed hinge type- circa 1967- ick. For my dream kitchen I would replace all the cabinets (small kitchen- not so bad) and diy concrete countertops, and replace the vinyl flooring with ceramic tiles

  201. I’d love to change the layout of our kitchen. Knock down a wall, give it an open floor plan, and add in sliding glass doors to the backyard!

    mjf926 at gmail dot com

  202. I would love a kitchen with an eat-in area/breakfast bar 🙂

  203. Oh! Where to begin? Farmhouse sink, real opening window to replace the glass block window over my stove…oh and a new professional-ish stove. New floor (wide wood plank, please), new countertops…the list goes on.

  204. Sean Michael says:

    I would add more lighting and consider a new door off the kitchen that leads to the back yard. I am sick of staring at this boring door. I’d also like to get new handles on the cabinets. Something that is not brass.

  205. Paige Chandler says:

    I’d get new marble counter tops and a new stone floor

  206. jennifer agard says:

    Oh my! I can’t WAIT to see how yours turn out because I have already been stalking the Home Depot Website and learning about these. I have my doors all picked out, so it only would be fair if I won the gift card. Just sayin’!

  207. Cheryl M. says:

    My perfect kitchen would include brighter cabinets and better storage!

    Good luck – can’t wait to see the results!

  208. I want to change the counter tops to granite. The sink needs to be changed and a double sink would be welcome. I would change the faucets, mine leak. The cabinets are next. I want something that is up to date. Storage space is a must with the cabinets. The new appliances would be economical and the refrigerator would have an ice maker.

  209. Renee Kern says:

    I would have to gut my 1967ish kitchen, unfortunately. Too much wasted space, big open middle, the heat is around two walls so nothing can be put on them to add storage or a work surface area, the same goes with the a/c vent in the ceiling, tucked in the corner, so again you can’t even hang cabinets on those to walls. I have a wall oven that is original and I have to guess at what to set the temp (even with the thermometer inside), a cook top that is ancient and takes forever to boil water on and about a space totaling less than 2′ for prep (and that is if I move the dish drainer), oh and no dishwasher. The counter tops are the old original white Formica with the bronze colored specks in them, and they added that same color dark bronze tiles to the backsplash (which I painted over to match the green I used to cover the 70’s orange, lol). When we bought our house we thought we would have enough to redo the kitchen and bath, but there were other more important things that needed attention, oh well, we make do with what we have. So, with the $1,000, I think I would get myself a new sink and faucet, countertop and a portable dishwasher. Yippee!

    1. Renee Kern says:

      I would like to add that, while I don’t sound grateful for what we have, trust me I am, because I know there are people in a lot worse situations and with no home.

  210. Katie Stastny says:

    I would create the perfect kitchen by staining my cabinets, new lighting, and a new backsplash!

  211. Julianne Johnson says:

    I would love to re-do my kitchen floor. The old flooring has been partially ripped out for 3 years and we are saving up for the whole project. Thanks for the opportunity!

  212. Jen Miller says:

    We need a backsplash! Our house came with a lovely WALLPAPER backsplash. It’s. Gotta. Go.
    Oh, and I’m smitten with these blackboard walls…may have to buy some blackboard and magnetic paint for one little wall on the side of the pantry!

  213. Robin Morris says:

    My kitchen remodel began today and I am so excited! I am getting new cabinet doors and drawer fronts. And all areas with double doors will have the pull out drawers. I am going with a soft sage green with a brown glaze for a pretty antique shabby chic look.

  214. I would add a glass tile backsplash to my kitchen.

  215. Angela Kinder says:

    I would redo our cabinets, add some new paint, change out the window for one that can open, and maybe add a little more counter space.

  216. stephanie says:

    I would redo everything!!!!

  217. Margaret Smith says:

    I would change our counters to either granite or corian. Retile the backsplash and replace our floor.
    Thanks so much.

  218. I’d like my own kitchen!

  219. My dream kitchen would require knocking out a wall, replacing our VERY old cabinets, refinishing our cast iron sink to perhaps not avocado green, more counter space that isn’t orange, no carpet and a dishwasher! Our kitchen was last done in the 70s if you can’t tell! lol

  220. Horace Riddle says:

    My wife would love a new kitchen, as that is her favorite room.

  221. I have the exact same problem as you , builder grade oak ugliness. I want to paint mine, BADLY. The countertops are also laminate forest green and I’d LOVE to replace those or try out the refinishing kits I’ve seen around.

  222. I would create my perfect kitchen with light cabinets, lots of glass to display my grandma’s old dishes, a big ole sink to pile dishes up in, and little pops of color and pattern in a great backsplash. What a cool thing to happen! Can’t wait to see how your kitchen turns out. I love Home Depot!

  223. Coincidentally I’m planning my perfect kitchen right now. The bottom cabinets will be dark grey and the top ones white. Two separate counters: one for me one for husband who really likes to fling water around. I’m planning a vintage island, something we inherited and created ourselves, with a granite top. Woo-hoo, $1,000 would be great! Jo @ Let’s Face the Music

  224. My kitchen is hopeless. Needs it all, new countertops and paint would be a great start!

  225. I would love to put $1,000 towards a fresh makeover on our kitchen. Ours is very big but has a lot of dark-dark cabinets and dark back splash. One needs to be lighter!

  226. Sarah Colesky says:

    I would change my cabinets to dark wood, get granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.

  227. To create my perfect kitchen we would have to knock down a wall, add an island and a built in breakfast nook. Not hard at all!

  228. Kate Horrell says:

    I can’t wait the see the final result. I painted my cabinets a yr ago white, and it really makes my kitchen so much brighter. But I’m a long way from finishing my kitchen, that gift card would sure come in handy.

  229. If only I could do some serious work on my kitchen. I would reface the cabinets, paint like a person possessed, build an island, move the fridge (with plumbing attachment for the ice maker coming out of the wall), and buy a new over head light.

  230. Chrystal D says:

    My dream kitchen has funky lights, the coolest appliances and lots of red!

  231. My perfect kitchen would include a lot more storage, stone counter tops, hardwood floors and brand new appliances.

  232. I like our kitchen, but it is too small for our family. We are actually trying to decide if we are going to build a house or renovate our current house. Thank you for sharing.

  233. I won’t get my dream kitchen in my current little starter home – fixer upper. I do have big dreams of slate tile floors, marble counters and white cabinetry that goes all the way to the ceiling! Those things would make my little kitchen amazing…. maybe in the next couple of years!

  234. gregg deering says:

    To start I would replace the old black appliances with energy saving ones. In just about any other color.

  235. eileen marie says:

    My kitchen is very cute & quaint, but our appliances could stand an upgrade & new counters would be amazing!

  236. tamatha hunter says:

    new countertops, flooring & paint the cabinets would be a great start

  237. Tracy L Davis says:

    I would put in a breakfast bar.

  238. I’d want n island that included an area for prep work.

  239. New kitchen countertops (granite), new cupboard doors and a new stove!

  240. Marcia Goss says:

    Our house was built in the 1960’s and the kitchen really needs updating. I’d like granite countertops, and new cabinets. I would also replace the light fixtures and appliances.

  241. My perfect kitchen would have counters and other surfaces that would reduce or eliminate the ability for germs and bacteria to live and grow. Sanitary standards!!

  242. Colleen W says:

    We could really use an island in our kitchen for extra counter space.

  243. To create my perfect kitchen, I’d start from the floor up. I’d like to have new hardwood floors, new cabinets, some quartz countertops, and then some nice light country-green paint.

  244. Ruby Daniels says:

    I would start with new cabinets and eventually knock down the wall between the living room and kitchen. My house is way to small and taking the wall down would really open it up.

  245. Julia Barnes says:

    I would put new counters in my kitchen. The laminate is getting yucky!

  246. Cynthia C says:

    I would install new counter tops and new hardware on the cupboards and drawers. I also need to update the lighting fixtures and buy a new refrigerator. Finally, a new coat of paint would finish it off.

  247. I’d start getting more storage space to store most of my appliances that I have on my counters, and then I’d get a few more appliances to put there too.

  248. Allison Downes says:

    I would put new flooring, paint the walls, new cabinets, and a new stove

    Thank you for the awesome giveaway!


  249. Richelle B says:

    I have the same cabinets as you, I too want them white, with hardware and all the way to the ceiling. My perfect kitchen also involves a new backsplash and sink.

  250. Anastasia says:

    I would love to brighten up the cabinets and add some under the counter storage space. My kitchen is pretty tiny, so I need all the room I can get 🙂

  251. I would create my perfect kitchen by taking down the wall between it and the dining room!

  252. Becky Horn says:

    I would love to rebuild my whole kitchen everything is outdated. I would want to match stainless steel with my stove.

  253. Jacob LaFountaine says:

    I want a fridge with the bottom freezer

  254. I’d be happy to replace the old black dishwasher with a new stainless one

  255. janna johnson says:

    I would buy all new appliances in stainless steel and put in cherry wood cabinets.

  256. D SCHMIDT says:

    We purchased our home last week and I actually really like the current kitchen because its huge but to make it ideal I would refinish the cabinets in a light color, replace the center island and replace the microwave.

  257. jennifer horn says:

    Our house is 50+ years old, so I’d love new countertops, cabinets, floors and appliances.

  258. My perfect kitchen involves installing a dishwasher. Seriously, I waste so much of my life hand washing dishes. I would also add more counter space between the fridge and stove.

  259. Steve Stone says:

    I would install a farmers sink and cool fixture. then a premium gas range because gas cooks better. then a corian counter-feels like butter. cool drawer pulls and dark cherry wood with all stainless.

  260. First I would gut the kitchen, then I would plan out cabinet space and counter space! After I have everything how I want it, I will work on the floor. My kitchen is in need of a huge facelift sweepmorey at gmail dot com

  261. i’d et new kitchen cabinets

  262. So exciting! I’d love to reface. Or paint. And add an island. And a new counter top. And, like you, have my cabinets reach the ceiling. Or maybe just some big chunky moulding to make them taller. So many ideas! I will put that $1,000 to very, very good use in my kitchen!

    Congrats to you!

    🙂 Linda

  263. Stephanie Larison says:

    I’d have new flooring and cabinets put in. Ours are so old they really date the rest of the house because of it.

  264. Stephanie V. says:

    remodel everything – cabinets, counter tops, new sink, new appliances, paint – gosh – whole house needs some love

  265. I would love to “redesign” my cabinets! The current configuration makes it so difficult to store pots and pans, small appliances, and cooking sheets, racks, etc. I’d love to have the corners better utilized. I’d love to have big drawers to store pots and pans.

  266. Amanda Collins says:

    How I would revamp my kitchen is get me a bigger sink and redo the countertops and make it more kid friendly or kid safe.

  267. I would definitely love to revamp my kitchen with new countertops and cabinets.

  268. julie murphy says:

    I need to put an island in also and new tables and chairs.

  269. Susan Smith says:

    I’d love to replace my kitchen cabinets, replace my formica tops with granite and my kitchen tile floor with tile.

  270. sandra davenport says:

    I would love to get a new countertop. My present one is cut wrong with large gaps where it should fit together.

  271. Kyl Neusch says:

    granite tops and nice cabinets

  272. Christine burd says:

    All my cupboards would have pull out drawers in the kitchen of my dreams and lazy susans in the corner cupboards. Anything to make it easier to retrieve pots , pans and dishware.

  273. joseph gersch jr says:

    i would use pergo floor and cherry cabinents

  274. Theresa Jenkins says:

    we have a 1920 home …we have refinished existing cabinets ,we want to open the dinning room into the kitchen and add a floor to celling pantry ;black counter tops and white for the island; we have a Hanging Bar Pot Rack that needs put up and I’d love everything cleaned and refreshed(painted)….thanks for the chance to WIN

  275. Michael W Perkins says:

    We need a new Sink, & some tile floors & backsplash.. We could do it all under a grand..

  276. Karina Lee says:

    I need to create more counter space

  277. I’ve been thinking about replacing our cabinet doors & drawer fronts, so this would be amazing! I would love to install reclaimed heart pine floors, white shaker style doors (our cabinet boxes are fine, but the MDF doors are swelling and cracking in the Florida humidity), subway tile backsplash, and refinish the countertops with either Corian or a concrete skim coat.

  278. Sarah Hirsch says:

    i’d have newer cabinets, granite countertops and hardwood flooring

  279. I need more storage and Spanish-style tiles!!

  280. Allison V. says:

    What a generous giveaway! I’d love to extend my cabinets to the ceiling for more storage and raise the cabinets above my sink to create a bigger pass through. The kitchen would feel so much more open. Oh, and definitely new flooring. My old white tiles are showing their age.

  281. A 60’s black, red, and white kitchen would be my dream.

  282. I would have cabinets that automatically lower so I can reach the top without a stool!

  283. Ahhh, a new look for my cabinets. That would bring a smile to my face each and every day! With my current kitchen quite similar to yours, I’m sure looking forward to seeing the great “after” pics that I’m sure are to come. 🙂

  284. my kitchen needs a facelift/update – my cabinets are fine but I think new hardware would make them look much better and I would replace my countertops with granite and add a backsplash –

  285. I hate my kitchen so I would completely gut it and start over! I would put in dark wood cabinets and and maybe do a deep red paint on the walls. I’d also put n new counter tops and accent tile and stainless steel appliances! This is all assuming become a millionaire in the near future!

  286. ashley c. says:

    I would put in all stainless steel appliances and new counter tops

  287. Emily Morelli says:

    Our kitchen needs a lot of help but the first thing needed is fresh tile to replace the nasty carpet! New paint and counter tops and a back splash would really help spruce it up, too!

  288. I need a new range and fridge more than anything! Granite tops and new cabinets would be good too. Thanks

  289. How exciting! I have always heard about refacing the cabinets and CANNOT WAIT to see it happen for you! My kitchen is very similar to yours in color, style and even wine corks (hee hee!!). I would love to be able to do exactly what you are doing!

    Can’t wait to see the finished product!

  290. I would love to paint or resurface my cabinets. I also would love granite countertops. I need help picking out a paint color.

  291. A French inspired kitchen to do all my cooking in!

  292. I not only need cabinets resurfaced but I have limited cabinets and virtually less counter space. There’s no backsplash other than 4 inch tiles and the entire counter (which isn’t much) is bull nosed tile….UGHHHHH

  293. Your kitchen will look great! Our kitchen could do with a makeover, the first thing being more SHELF SPACE! We have a pretty large kitchen but we have no wall cabinets so space can be tight!

    Thanks for the entry!

  294. Gah, luckyyy (said in my best Napoleon Dynamite voice). I would love to paint our ktichen cabinets white, but I’m in the same boat as you..really don’t want to tackle it myself!

  295. Jenna Nicholson says:

    I would paint my builder grade oak cabinets and replace the laminate counters with butcher block.

  296. David Lane says:

    I would tile my kitchen

  297. I would get my floor done and put in new counter tops and appliances.

  298. Maria Iemma says:

    My kitchen has not been remodeled in over 30 years. I certainly need new cabinets and countertops and would love to take out a wall and make it more of an open space and add an island for preparations and breakfast nook

  299. Stephanie Foster says:

    If money was a non-issue, I have a long wish list for my dream kitchen. It would definitely require the replace option….replace just about everything in there. From the cabinets, to the appliances, all the way down to the warped wood floor. I imagine stainless steel appliances, with dark cabinets. I don’t really cook, so I don’t know why I have put so much thought into what my dream kitchen would look like. Perhaps it’s because friends and family always seem to gather in the kitchen, so it should be a welcoming place in my home.

  300. We would start by knocking a wall out to expand our tiny space!

  301. maria cantu says:

    In my kitchen I would have to replace just about everything.

  302. I would have all of the cabinets resurfaced along with having sliders (in the cabinets) installed to get to pots and pans easier as well as food products. I would replace all of the appliances as they are from the 70’s and 80’s, remove the wallpaper and have the flooring replace as it is a 1970’s avocado green.

  303. Michele C says:

    Home Depot helping me create a perfect kitchen signs perfect! I could use help updating my outdated kitchen. Replacing outdated cabinets would be definitely on my list.

  304. Just moved into a new (old) house. The kitchen has excellent cabinetry, but we have already found that there is a lot of wasted space–would like to revamp to get better utilization of the space available.

  305. Robin Wilson says:

    I would love to refinish or put new doors on our cabinets! That and a new sink and faucet would make me happy beyond belief. Starting small and will work my way up from there.

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway!


  306. Jennifer S. says:

    A perfect kitchen? We’ve been looking to rid our kitchen of the honey oak cabinets also. We’re planning on re-staining them darker, getting some new counter tops, new back splash and finishing it off with an updated light fixture!

  307. Oh I’d love to paint my cabinets to revamp my kitchen. They are custom made and wonderful, just not my color.

  308. Backsplash, dark stained cabinets, upgraded fridge and oven/stove would be nice!

  309. Ashley Bee says:

    I was blessed to be able to build a house last year, but the one thing the builder did not offer was any decent backplashes! To be my dream kitchen, I would definitely need to buy some awesome glass tile both to protect my walls from splashes and provide a focal point.

    I’m excited to see how your transformation goes. My parent’s house also has the old oak cabinets and I think refacing is a great option for them!

  310. Ohh we would love to be able to afford a kitchen renovation! We ogle the beautiful kitchen pics online!

  311. New countertops are on my dream list. I’d also like to update the tile.

  312. I would replace my cabinets, build out my pantry and maybe even refinish my floors!

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  313. I would re do my kitchen in brighter colors: the floors, the cabinet surfaces and more lighting.

  314. I would love to completely tear apart and rework my kitchen…but it’s just not in the cards. in the meantime I’ve settled for painting the cabinets and replacing the countertop while my hubby & I search for a new house.

  315. I would replace my awful floor (never get anything other than a completely flat kitchen floor tile!).

  316. Dare I dream of a day when all the baking crumbs don’t get stuck in the gross crack b/t my laminate counter and stove? Or when the hard wood floor stuck under 3 layers of laminate tile and subflooring is shiny and beautiful? (Who covers hard wood floors!?) Or when I can actually access my pots, pans, and baking sheets without emptying my entire cabinet? Be still my heart!! 😉

  317. Oh, what I would give to have a new kitchen. I would need to replace my floors and i love the layout of my kitchen, but not the overly maple colored cabinetry. I am in LOVE with white and would love to change my countertop as well.

  318. I would like to replace almost everything in my kitchen because it’s broken.

  319. My appliances are OK. I would replace my cabinets, countertops and floor. Of course more counter space and more storage would be great, but really an update is needed. Our kitchen in retro 60s with new appliances, we replaced the harvest gold appliances a few years ago!!

  320. There is a stone arch at one end of my kitchen where a stove and two cabinets sit… Remove the cabinets and replace the existing stove with an Aga… Perfect!

  321. Starr Greenwell says:

    I would get new kitchen cabinets and new granite countertops. My dream.

  322. Would love to upgrade our 20-yr old kitchen. Outdated oak cabinets, a stained glass light fixture and worn counter tops all need a facelift. Glad to know that Home Depot has options to bring us up to date!

  323. Janice Cooper says:

    We always talked about getting new cabinets. We really, really could use some new kitchen cabinets along with new counter tops and a new kitchen sink. We also need new appliances. Our refrigerator and stove is over 20 years old. We also could use some new flooring too.

  324. Melissa S says:

    Ahh, we have thought about it long and hard! We would replace the cabinets as the thermafoil on ours is peeling away, lovely look! We’d also love to replace our backsplash as it literally absorbs water and is difficult to clean! Looking forward to seeing your new look!

  325. Elizabeth A says:

    I would add glass to some of my cabinetry and paint my island for sure. The list is long for all the little things I want to do in there. Can’t wait to see your kitchen.

  326. I’m wishing for a new dishwasher and fridge for my kitchen.

  327. Great ideas! My big dreams for my kitchen are to blow out the double windows in the “dinning” area and add a sunroom off the kitchen to use instead. But I think I’d settle for putting in a backsplash and actually painting – it’s only been two years since we’ve moved in!

  328. Maria Iemma says:

    My perfect kitchen would have cherry cabinets with beautiful pewter hardware and a stainless steel sink over a window. Granite counter tops and a glass backsplash, stainless steel appliances and a beautiful hood would complete the look

  329. I would create the perfect kitchen if I had a nice big space with room for a kitchen island! I’ve always wanted one

  330. I need new appliances! I love the idea of re-surfacing!

  331. We’d put that money toward blowing out (part of) the wall between the kitchen and the living room, new cabinets (or at least new doors), new counters, reconfiguring the existing cabinetry to allow for better flow between rooms and a new dishwasher… Phew. We could definitely use Home Depot’s help planning THAT monster project!

  332. Donna Marchlewski says:

    I like contemporary with a vintage feel

  333. Jessica S says:

    My perfect kitchen would be all white and clean and modern and pretty!!! I would have colorful accents around the kitchen, like a blue stand mixer, black coffee maker, etc. I can picture it now… so cute!!

  334. anne kenny says:

    Our kitchen needs a lot of help! to start I would need to replace the dated windmill tile backsplash!

  335. Liz Smalley says:

    I really need some good wall art and shelving to make it feel homier!

  336. I could see the modernism that could be done to the kitchen in out old ranch style house.

  337. Iliana Blair says:

    The perfect kitchen would be one that came with a chef and a maid! just kidding. We started this past year with remodeling our kitchen even though is only 5 years old. We bought it the way it was and upgraded our kitchen counters , added a bay window to the dining area and purchased an 8 seat dining room set. I guess I would change the cabinets facing to something more detailed as they are very plain.

  338. Erika Miller says:

    The perfect kitchen would be one that my husband and I agree on. Complete with super awesome backsplash 🙂

  339. For me the perfect kitchen would be one with lots of counter space. Unfortunately I will have to wait until my next place for that. For now I would just be happy to redo my tiny galley kitchen in my condo to bring it up to date since it is the original cabinetry from when my condo was build in 1989 (I think I had the same cabinets in my grad school apartment).

  340. My dream kitchen would come with a chef! And Bakerella!

  341. Farah Nieschwitz says:

    I would love to tear down a wall, and a bar and some stools, and maybe new flooring to make my kitchen great!

  342. Man- If I won I would be taking the 70s out of my kitchen by updating the orange sink to a farm sink and I would like new hardware that is more clean lined. I’d also get a nice back splash and white trim! Oh! A new window would be nice too! 🙂

  343. It would be great to knock out a wall to make our kitchen bigger, then a new countertop, sink & flooring!

  344. My perfect kitchen would have beautiful tile on the floor and back splashes, farmers sink, island, butcher block counters and about 4 times more room than I currently have!

  345. I’m in a 100 year old house… we are so limited on what we can do, my kitchen needs updated but in the meantime we polished the old retro counters and painted the cabinets!! 🙂

  346. Karen McAdams says:

    Oh, I would love backsplash and new hardware and new hinges. 🙂 and maybe a countertop or 2….

  347. I would paint my cabinets chocolate brown and add some stone tile as a backsplash.

  348. For my perfect kitchen I would start with a large island (with an extra sink), a double over and a gas stove! I’d build around that with new glazed cabinets and beautiful rugs!

  349. Cynthia C says:

    I would replace my formica counter tops with granite and get new tile back splashes.

  350. We are currently in the process of remodeling our kitchen, we ripped out the old hand built one the previous owner had and we moved it to the other side of the area. So my perfect kitchen would be a finished one with a subway tile back splash, cabinet doors and knobs, and a large work island.

  351. To create my perfect kitchen, I would update all of the appliances to stainless steel as well as try to bring in as much natural light as possible. I love white kitchens with a lot of light!

  352. My kitchen is straight out of 1972, with old dark cabinets, low ceilings, terrible layout, ancient appliances, and CARPET. Please help!!!!

  353. I would spend that $1000 so hard!! PLEASSSSEEEEE Home Depot!

  354. Oh $1000 at Home Depot would come in very handy in my house.

  355. eileen marie says:

    I would replace our appliances. They work only sporadically & never seem to get clean. :/ Super excited to enter this!

    1. eileen marie says:

      Aaargh! Please ignore or delete (!)my above comment! I guess I already entered and forgot, but then saw my gravitas when scrolling. *Palm to face*

    2. eileen marie says:

      Aaargh! Please ignore or delete (!)my above comment! I guess I already entered and forgot, but then saw my gravatar when scrolling up. *Palm to face*

  356. I would renew my cabinets by painting and adding a new fresh background to the shelves, My cabinets are to the ceiling with huge glass doors, would add new hardware. I would add more open shelves around the kitchen, specifically above the sink.

  357. Christie R says:

    I would love to repaint the kitchen cabinets and add some hardware (drawer pulls). I have one of those yucky fluorescent lights that I’d like to get rid of and install some high-hat lights. Thanks!

  358. Replacing flooring, countertops, and adding a backsplash are high on my list to renew my kitchen. Maybe painting my cabinets and replacing hardware, swapping out the light fixture and adding a new wall color would really be great too! Not sure how soon I can get my husband to move on this though. He remodeled it 20 years ago and did a super job, but I’m growing tired of it now and could use a revamp. Also, things are beginning to show wear, etc.

  359. Jennifer Adams says:

    Love your wall color in your kitchen. Lets see…the perfect kitchen…I would take out the wall between our kitchen and dining room to open it up a bit, put a white wash on the cabinets and paint the walls a lovely shade of misty morning green. Then there would be the new floor – methinks I do like tile in the kitchen. Had tile in the past, have hardwood now….Oh, and a breakfast bar at the wall that gets removed!

  360. Donna Marchlewski says:

    We are buying an older home and will need to redo the ENTIRE kitchen!

  361. I would remove the wallpaper, replace the linoleum as well as replace the countertops to spruce up the kitchen area to become my perfect kitchen.

  362. Erin Yeung says:

    I would love to reface my cabinets. They are currently painted white and dented in some places.

  363. To create my perfect kitchen, I would have white cabinets with beautiful hardware, a subway or penny tile back-splash, and lots of natural light! Also, I’d love to change some of the cabinets to the open-shelving

  364. I need new flooring, cabinets and more counterspace. Need to knock out one wall to make it a more open concept.

  365. I like the plans you have. I’d love to revamp my pantry. It needs fresh paint, a new sink, a new dishwasher and the cabinets could use some paint, too. It shows the 12 years of heavy use.

  366. If I had an opportunity to redo my kitchen, I would knock down the wall to my dining room and create a kitchen island in the center, with oven and cooker so I am finally able to bring my fridge into the kitchen, where the oven is now. It currently resides in my mudroom 🙂

  367. Caroline Marin says:

    I think refacing our cabinets would be an awesome way to remodel our kitchen. We have a galley-style kitchen with poor light and that paired with our very dark cabinets makes for a lot of dark feelings in my happy place. We don’t have the house layout to knock out walls and change the way the kitchen is set up, so refacing would be THE PERFECT way to perk things up!

  368. Jenni Casey says:

    I would love new hardware, painted walls, backsplash and flooring in my kitchen.

  369. My dream wish for my kitchen is to repaint it and fix our counters. There’s a big burn mark on it that I hide with a basket but it’d be nice to finally fix that. Thanks for the chance!

  370. Chris and I are in the middle of remodeling our kitchen right now. We have already taken it down to the studs, updated the plumbing and we are adding a breakfast bar. The house we bought had a seventies style kitchen still in it. We haven’t been able to move in yet because the kitchen is not in working order. I’ve been driving everyday, Monday through Friday from Brownsburg to Carmel just to get Xander to school. We are putting in new cabinets, backsplash and paint. Hopefully we will be finished before Thanksgiving. 🙂

  371. I would use the $1.000 Home Depot card to put new flooring in my kitchen. We have big dogs who love to be in the kitchen with me, especially while I cook. They are constantly on the lookout for falling food. Big dogs, sharp claws don’t make for the prettiest floors.

  372. Iliana Blair says:

    4 Years ago we downsized from our 2600 sq feet home and just love the size of my kitchen, area. We have already replaced the countertop, added a bay window to our dining area and replaced the 25 + year dining set.

    I too have cabinets with the high ceiling for decorations and would not trade them but would upgrade to a different stove/oven, this is where the $1,000 home depot card would help me realize a dream kitchen

  373. Brittni Stevenson says:

    Buying our 1St, house I am beyond frugal and could probably jazz up my entire kitchen with this money!

  374. Lauren-Olivia Wood says:

    I would revamp the whole storage systems for my appliances and pantry!

  375. richelle bowers says:

    I would get new appliances. specifically my dream fridge

  376. Marianne Sanchez says:

    I would love to reface my counter tops, and put up a new back splash. My cabinets are also oak, and have been that for 18 years, so I would paint then white.

  377. Erica Best says:

    i would use dark woods and alot space to move around and cook

  378. I would love to replace our tile countertops with granite!

  379. Angela Swinson says:

    I would really like to replace my laminate countertops with something more durable. I also need to replace at least part of my ceramic tile floor because the house settled and broke/crumbled the grout line right down the middle of the kitchen! I need a new table, as well, since it is an eat in kitchen and my current table and chairs do not match!

  380. Terri Moore says:

    My kitchen is so small that it can barely fit one stool. The perfect kitchen would involve enclosing the connecting the roofed deck outside the back door and making a built-in breakfast nook that would overlook the back yard. The benches would have additional storage under them, with a big window where I could grow herbs in pots. That would be a dream come true!

  381. Your kitchen is gorgeous. My first thing to go in my kitchen would be the cabinets for sure. Then a bigger window and a new fridge for sure.

    gmissycat @ yahoo . com

  382. For my perfect kitchen, I need more counter top space. I think that’s because I don’t have enough cabinet/pantry space. So, having more of both will help my kitchen look neat and perfect. And it’s definitely time for a new fridge too.

    amy [at] utry [dot] it

  383. Wanda McHenry says:

    I would create my perfect kitchen with plenty of windows, stainless steel appliances, oak cabinets and Jenn Air cooktop and grill on a kitchen island and hardwood floors!

  384. To create my perfect kitchen I would have the cabinets refaced and painted white. I would also add T-bar pulls, and put up a back splash. I would get granite counter tops, with butcher block on the island.

  385. Tina Demarco says:

    this would do wonders for my kitchen! new floor cabinets paint!!!

  386. My perfect kitchen would have a bay window, a pantry, and an eating nook.

  387. Jennifer Dunaway says:

    My kitchen could use new cabinets since mine are 30 years old. It would make the kitchen perfect.

  388. Donna Kellogg says:

    I would love a island in my kitchen and a breakfast bar. That is two things I really want added to my kitchen along with A nice new Refrigerator.

  389. I would start by replacing all of my major appliances and microwave. I would then paint my cabinets as they are in good shape but are dated looking. Next, the counters would get a colorful redo with something purple and fantastic. Lastly, my floors. I want this nasty tan linoleum GONE! LOL

  390. Everybody goes with light colors and woods but my perfect kitchen would have dark woods and accents. I just feel like it’s more cozy and warm!

  391. wish we could expand the space for a bigger kitchen

  392. Natural wood floors, cabinets and an island with a marble counter top. I also need big enough space for my family because we are a family of nine and growing 🙂

  393. To create my perfect kitchen I would start first by taking out the black and white checkered vinyl flooring. EMBARRASSING!!!

  394. I love a mixture of lighter wood with some darker wood. I think it gives some warmth and character.

  395. I’d want a yellow and white kitchen. Must have microwave, dish washing machine and large toaster oven. Also, lots of storage (no glass doors though).

  396. Douglas Houston says:

    I would like new cabinets and tile flooring, my kitchen is outdated.

  397. Karen Drake says:

    I am renting right now so remodeling isn’t really an option, if I owned this house I would add an island and some more cabinets.

  398. Heather B says:

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to replace my lighting. We have canister lights and my kitchen is so DARK!!

  399. To create my perfect kitchen, I would start by replacing my old appliances (fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher). Then I would remodel the kitchen to the country farmhouse style with rustic tones and accents.

  400. Mary Hall says:

    I would LOVE to have french doors in my kitchen. I would let in a ton more light.

  401. Lisa Garner says:

    I would add and island and new countertop to my kitchen to help make it a perfect kitchen.
    lisalmg25 at gmail dot com

  402. My ideal kitchen would have dark wood floors, a dark counter top, either a navy or black, and white cabinets. I have too much wood too.

  403. Our perfect kitchen would require an extension to the house. We’d love to find something more suitable with our Eastlake victorian.

  404. Mary Cloud says:

    I would remove my cabinet doors and replace them plus my back cabinets which are in bad shape – put all new white cabinets in and install hardwood floors. That would be my dream kitchen.

  405. Chaz Vgo (Chastidy) says:

    I would add new counter tops, a sink & faucet 🙂

  406. Sonya Morris says:

    I would lower my cabinets, add a black sink and a nicer countertop. Of course, if I walk through Home Depot I would have an even bigger wishlist! That place is dangerous and everytime my husband asks if I want to go with him, I always ask him if he can afford for me to go!!

  407. Michelle Hz says:

    I’d start by ripping out the white tile floors and countertops that are in the kitchen now and replacing them with something like travertine tiles on the floor and granite or silestone on the counters.

  408. I think I would start with a wrecking ball first. Then I would love a Country style kitchen, hardwood floors and big rugs. I would love an Island in the middle too.

    [email protected]

  409. My perfect kitchen would have a big pantry, lots of shelves, and cabinets that go to the ceiling.

  410. Karrie Millheim says:

    i love a island too! i think it makes the room feel more inviting and also gives you a space close to all areas of the kitchen to work on.i also agree with the cabinets,i dont like all that space either.that could give more counter space and it gets dusty on top of there and a pain to clean lol but i think it looks good with the rope lights on top of the cabinets and it gives off a soft glow,more like a warm night mom has them and that is the only part i like about it.
