Something about the yellow in the painting is off...nothing there to accent the red pillows. Recommend...

Honestly, I think it's just semantics...an attempt to transition one phrase into the other. After reading the houzz article describing 'work zones', it could just as easily describe my 'work triangle' kitchen. I Dishwasher & trash next to sink, check. Landing areas next to major appliances: check. Large island to keep guests a bay: check.....

I live in a small town filled with older homes. I know few people who upgrade their kitchens to look like the glam-fabulous photos here on houzz. Most people I know don't ever get around to kitchen remodeling and just make do with the old.

Another thing: I read that kitchens have come a long way because all the architects used to be all men and they seldom spent time in a kitchen, therefore kitchens weren't 'user friendly'. Once women came on to the scene, their input helped kitchens evolve into rooms that function well and are family gathering places.

I don't have time to read all the other comments, so maybe someone has already said this, but I think it's a good idea to have the sink and the cooktop/range on the same run of cabinets, so that they are not separated by a walkway. This makes prep and cleanup easier and safer, since no one can walk between the chef and the sink while the chef is trying to drain pasta.

The company that makes the marine quality paint that was used to cover my laminate cabinets is AWL.
the stuff is amazing if applied properly and that means sprayed on in shop and on site where uprights etc. can't be removed. I don't know what prep was used (probably some serious sanding?) but the final result is an incredible euro looking, tough as nails lacquer finish. Stands to reason as this product is used to paint yachts. AKZO NOBEL....North American supplier: East Water St. Waukegan Illinois 60085 TEL: 847-599-6212, FAX: 847-599-6209 Australia: Unit E54 Gold Coast City Marina 76 Waterway Dr. Coomera Queensland 4209 Australia. TEL: 61.7.5573.9655, FAX:61.7.5573.9677 Europe: Bannerlaan 54 2280 Grobbendonk Belgium. TEL: 32.14.25.7770 FAX: 32.14.23.0880. this is not something that you can just paint on but if you have the money to invest in getting someone to do a do a proper job you will NOT be disappointed in the final product. My laminate cabinets went from dark brown to off white and they're virtually perfect.
