Kitchen Remodel Suggestions?
The Friend and I will be moving back to the U.S. next summer, and my condo's kitchen is badly in need of a complete remodel. It's an exciting project for me -- I'm looking forward to full-sized appliances, multiple electric outlets in sensible locations, a garbage disposal, reasonably deep cupboards and good lighting. The kitchen is about 10' x10', U-shaped, and is fully enclosed -- the building was constructed in 1944. The budget has room for new cabinetry (bamboo is the current choice) and appliances (a double oven or a large oven with a warming drawer of some sort is a must.) Other features on my list: A hands-free faucet w/foot pedal; an induction cooktop; large, deep drawers for dishes and pans; and really good lighting of some sort. Function is more important than form. Suggestions, cautions, comments are needed!
