Thinking of renovating your kitchen? DO NOT PASS GO until you read the following.

While everyone has their style preferences, educated choices are key when it comes to mounting a reno that will stand the test of time. Good craftsmanship is one thing, but style is in the details: backsplash, countertop materials, cabinet proportions, island finishes and drawer pulls, all set the style of your kitchen, and are all decisions that can easily overwhelm without guidance.
