I have lots of paperwork about warranties of the products which came from Direct Buy. By the way I don't work for them I am just passing along my experience. I left when to pull permits to my contractor. We pulled permits for a lot of electrical work which ended up getting a new electric box and moving the meter from one side of the house to the other because codes would not allow electric and gas meters to be on the same side of the house together. I hired an outside electrical company to do 98% of the electrical work. My experiences with contractors is they let "Jack of all Trades" do a lot of electrical work and I caught on right away I needed specialist. I also hired a local designer to help with colour choices and to pick out countertops and backslashes. I also did a master bath and put a wet bar in the sunroom. Now my attention goes to the outside

On this kitchen the client was putting this house up for sale and wanted to do a white kitchen but asked that it not be boring. You can use a fairly simple color palette of white and gray and not have it be boring. Pattern was the answer in this case.
