When contemplating kitchen remodeling or kitchen makeover give special attention to the cabinets and flooring as the two most significant contributors to the decor of the kitchen.

is very important. It should be something that is low maintenance, stands up well to moisture and spills, and is durable enough for high traffic. Many
people feel that laminate or vinyl floor is best for the kitchen. If the cabinets are structurally secure, some money can be saved by doing cabinet
refacing instead of installing new ones.
