They say the kitchen is the heart of the home – for our family, that is absolutely true! When we bought The Arched Manor, the kitchen looked like it was in rough shape. After several visits to the house, we realized that the kitchen had good bones – the cabinets were Omega (level 7), most of the appliances were high-end brands and still fully functional (Sub Zero, Dacor), and the general layout of the kitchen was functional. We decided to keep the cabinets (with a few additions and subtractions) and have the professionally painted. The hardware was copper, which we primed and painted satin black. The counter-tops and back-splash were replaced with updated materials, along with the sinks and faucets.
