During the past five years, we have been in the process of slowly updating our house that was custom built for us in 1987. My fantastic husband designed the floor plan and 25 years later, the lay out continues to work wonderfully for us. We replaced the almond coloured fridge and stove in 2007, the black dishwasher in 2010. Now it was time for new sinks and counter top.
stainless steel range hood is also new. The install was complicated by the fact that outside of this wall is inside our attached garage. So the installer used six inch venting pipe along the wall in the garage to get to the outside wall vent. I only got two quotes for installing the range hood, the difference was $500. This range hood has two excellent halogen lights, I can see the coils under the stove top, as well as every scratch on the stove top, speck of dust on the kettle, counter etc. The fan has variable speeds and timer. It is noisy. Still to come later is new hardware for the cupboards and a paint job for the dining room.
Dear readers, I would love to read your comments on counter top materials, pottery collecting or my kitchen reno. Are you currently renovating?
