A thought from the bygone era- kitchen is an ancillary unit. Oh! Just that place where you cook meals and do the dishwashing bit. Don’t let it eat space, keep it tiny. And yes, preferably in some excluded area of the home. I can vouch for the complete whitewash of this line of thought.

Kitchen renovation is a worthy thought at any time. Let me take you through a few innovative ideas which are befitting of a kitchen reno project.
I think that the housing boom did great justice to the cause of curb appeal and among many other things related to the exterior of a house, garage doors also came into the limelight. One cannot question the utility of a garage door and this makes its maintenance a point worth talking about.
