Tiny kitchens can feel claustrophobic when cabinets are towering overhead. Many cooks can't reach what's in them and the overall feeling is boxy and closed in. Get organized and trade the top cupboards for open storage. Consider shelving, pot racks and magnetic knife or spice holders instead. Your kitchen will look more spacious and serve up display space for your favorite dishes, shiny pots and pans, or artwork.
This upscale, country-themed kitchen makes use of a red and yellow color palette to open up this long, galley-styled kitchen. Black is strategically placed throughout the space, with all colors of the room represented in the area rug.

Although vinyl siding sometimes gets a bad rap for quality, contemporary siding represents a huge upgrade over early versions that didn’t perform very well. Plus, it’s a sound investment, because you’ll recoup around 80% of your project costs in added home value. It’s usually worth it to pay more for thicker siding because it’s less likely to sag, and it’s always worth it to pay for an experienced contractor, because proper installation is critical to avoiding warping and buckling.
