What's Cooking in Kitchen Design

The kitchen remains one of the most popular places in the home. Even with slowing home sales in many U.S. markets, kitchen remodeling projects continue to provide positive returns at the time of a home sale. So, instead of major renovations and overhauls, this subdued market has kicked off beautification and smart kitchen re-dos to improve the home.

A successful redesign depends on making choices that enhance the kitchen and its role in today’s families. The kitchen is not just a place to eat but a place to entertain, to show off culinary skills and to gather with your family and friends.

Remember, not every kitchen remodeling project has to be a total ‘tear it all down’ operation to be an effective one. Here is a sampling of some hot trends that are simple, yet effective ways to improve the design and look of your kitchen:

  • Consider adding crown molding, corbels and appliqués.
  • New hardware can immediately revitalize old cabinets.
  • Add trash can pullouts and plate and utensil organizers to improve organization and convenience.
  • Replace older countertops with more popular ones like Corian or granite.
  • Add new cabinet fronts to bring a refreshing look to an older kitchen.
  • Consider mixing cabinet colors. This is a growing trend in today’s kitchens.


Squirrel Proof Your Plants and Bird Feeder -

To keep squirrels from eating your plants and eating your bird seed, use cayenne pepper. Sprinkle the pepper on your plants and in the bird seed. It doesn't hurt the plants or affect the birds and the squirrels won't come near.


Question: Is there anything I should do to "Summerize" my home? -John Young

Answer: That's an excellent question, John. Of course it's important to have your home's cooling system checked. It's also an ideal time to look at energy efficient projects such as replacement windows, roofing, etc. Prepare your home for Summer by adding shade trees in your yard. It's a good idea to include planting a shade tree next to your air conditioner's outside unit; the extra shade should help it run more efficiently. Additional vegetation around any paved areas (driveways, walkways, sidewalks, etc.) will also reduce the reflected heat and sunlight. Finally, you can help your home run efficiently by having additional ceiling fans and dimmer switches installed.

Why Is Sushi So Great?

sushiSushi is more than a tasty, low-calorie meal. Research shows eating it can do the following:

Improve your immunity. Nori (the seaweed in rolls) provides a good dose of Vitamin C.

Shrink your waist. Eat brown rice; it has nearly triple the fiber of white, so you'll stay full longer.

Treat your heart. Wild salmon is rich in heart-protecting omega-3 fatty acids. It's also low in mercury. (For more fish facts and to view a list of good fish to eat, visit

Curb cancer. Ginger may help prompt ovarian cancer cells to self-destruct.

Aid your smile. The same chemicals that add zip to wasabi (isothiocyanates) can also kill germs that cause tooth decay.

So, go ahead and pick up a pair of chopsticks!
