Kitchen Remodeling Ideas

Print Email

Kitchen Remodeling Ideas can come from many different sources like manufacturers catalogs, books, magazines, websites, local showrooms, friends kitchens, up scale house tours, and kitchen designers. My goal with this kitchen remodeling ideas web page is to provide a home base to do research from on kitchen designs and general information. I'll provide quality links to the different design sources for ideas.

On this site for lots of idea pictures visit the Kitchen Picture Gallery, the Kitchen Island Design page, and the backsplash Idea Pictures page.

Cabinet manufacturer catalogs and web sites are a must have when designing a kitchen. Getting to know all the cabinet types, will help when laying out a kitchen cabinet design. Seeing the different door styles, wood types, finish types, and decorative trim options will also help in getting a direction toward your kitchen design style ideas. Some cabinet manufacturer web sites provide designing tools.
