When I started to think in remodeling my kitchen I had no, I confess, a pale idea what the real meaning of this and how hard could be it. It is taking more time that we planned and also much money. For other hand renovating a kitchen is a great way to increase your home's value. It is also one of the most complicated because there are many factors to consider. It needs to be well-planned and designed to maximize the functionality. So, I strongly recommend that you always contract a professional, like an architect and a good contractor. I started thinking in one thing and finished changing my opinion and ideas a lot.

This way I had safe flooring and looks like wood!!!! In fact the only way to discover that is not real wood; is touching
After installing the floor, we call a couple of good friends of us, how are building their new home, to show our brand new floor and how I optimized my kitchen space only changing a couple of walls and eliminating two doors. So, .I bought a bottle of wine and I made this simple, but delicious appetizers.
And I remember, meanwhile I prepare, that Jenn from the leftover queen adores figs. Now, as a newlywed she is restarting a tradition for her new family, the movie nights. How about this treat Jenn? I think that you must love it ;)
