Q: My husband and I recently started a renovation project and I have been overwhelmed by all the decision that have to be made and I find it so hard to keep track of it all. A: To stay on top of things, create a binder containing all the documentation of decisions made so far and get in the habit of carrying all your swatches and samples with you so that wherever you are, you can match things up.
Q: I really like my kitchen (it’s only about 5 years old and in very good shape) but I see in all the magazines that kitchen cabinets go all the way to the ceiling and mine are normal height, and the tops just collect dust. How can I update the look without changing the cabinets? A: Thankfully there is an easy way! You can extend the height of your cabinets by having a wooden soffit created above the cabinets and trimmed with large crown molding for a custom, expensive look.
