Kitchen remodel products help/advice
We want to remodel our kitchen, can anyone recommend or steer me away from certain products or brands?
I generally like the Ikea look, modern with clean lines. Laminate counter is OK, it's just that I am not a do it yourselfer. I feel a little intimidated about measuring and ordering all the components from Ikea.
Looked into using Home Depot, a bit more traditional but seems like they offer more services. I like their Corian and Quartz counter tops, for some reason I do not like granite, even though it is so popular. I have a super sunny bright kitchen and feel the granite looks heavy.
My husband likes this place that sells wood cabinets made in China and has very inexpensive granite. I've read internet postings, warning about Chinese cabinets and their formaldehyde content, any truth to this?
We also looked into Costco - although good quality, seemed expensive. We have a townhome and don't want to for top of line stuff. Also with our GSD who does not like intruders/contractors in the home, getting advice on how to get stuff installed quickly would be helpful.
