Inadequate planning and design can result in an addition that looks "attached" rather than integrated. We recently completed this limestone patio and outdoor fireplace - which introduces an entirely new type of living space that flows as if part of the original design.<br \><br \>7 replies Tue, 27 Dec 2011 06:11:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-a-Home-Addition-should-not-look-like-an-addition/426769/ 2011-12-27T06:11:00Z What is he definition of a Bedroom in Noblesville/Westfield Indiana http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-is-he-definition-of-a-Bedroom-in-Noblesville-Westfield-Indiana/378680/ We purchase a house last year, with an unfinished basement.

Should we:<br/><br/><strong>1</strong> - Replace our existing old kitchen cabinets (worn, country arch, medium golden oak) with new, nicer modern look and feel cabinets (better function, box design, ashy lite birch/maple), even if it creates less enclosed storage space, especially uppers? <br/><br/>Or <br/><br/><strong>2</strong> - Leave and paint the existing cabinets white, while also creating a large, new, non-floating island on a big empty wall across from the existing kitchen cabinets, even if the new cabinets are the previously described slightly different style and lite colored, but not white? <br/><br/><u>Important details</u>: Since it is a galley style kitchen, the cabinets will never be up against each other and for the most part could only be view one side or the other at any time. Also, the new cabinets have already been purchased at a great bargain, so they will need to be used or re-sold either way. Lastly, the home is in a low/medium to medium price range for the area, and most kitchens have not been much updated.<br/><br/>At the moment my wife wants to just replace the old with the new, and sacrifice a little storage for the better cabinets with some open shelving maybe. I, on the other hand, don't want to lose any storage space and if anything would like to utilize the additional space by creating the non-floating island with most of the new cabinetry. I at least think it could be a good option without looking at all strange or mixy-matchy, which is her concern. Ultimately her desire will win out, but I wanted to consult as many opinions as possible for us to consider...<br/><br/>Thank you for your time, consideration and input!<br \><br \>2 replies Mon, 25 Jan 2010 07:25:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Kitchen-Cabinets-Fully-replace-lose-space-OR-add-space-not-all-matching/318144/ 2010-01-25T07:25:00Z updating kitchens http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/updating-kitchens/316171/ one of the things that have the greatest visual impact are the cabinets. shelf stock cabinets are alot less then custom cabinets. refacing old cabinets with new drawers and fonts on frames with new pulls and knobs are great ideas. Also, something as simple as a new kitchen sink is a cheap way to make your kitchen look good. lastly, give your kitchen a makeover with a new coat of paint!<br \><br \>1 reply Tue, 19 Jan 2010 02:19:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/updating-kitchens/316171/ 2010-01-19T02:19:00Z decorating and design tips. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/decorating-and-design-tips/310909/ <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.facebook.com/scottprimerealestate">my facebook profile</a>Do you need to get your house ready to be a listing to be put on the market this year? my facebook page has&nbsp;the insights for your property both inside and outside, that will make buyers want to see your house! click on my fackbook link, and when you go through all the material, email me and i'll send you some flyers!<br \><br \>2 replies Sat, 02 Jan 2010 07:00:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/decorating-and-design-tips/310909/ 2010-01-02T07:00:00Z how can i find a specific address http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-i-find-a-specific-address/185957/ 1 reply Wed, 07 Jan 2009 19:30:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-i-find-a-specific-address/185957/ 2009-01-07T19:30:00Z
