Every time Ken and Debby Willett wanted to do dishes in their old Kitchen Cabinet Sets for Sale, one of them had to wheel their portable dishwasher over to the sink in the middle of the workspace, hook a special attachment up to the faucet, turn the thing on and listen to loud rumbling noises until the cycle was done. “You couldn’t do anything in the kitchen while it was running,” Ken says. “But the worst thing was forgetting to turn on the water and the machine runs a whole cycle with no water. The heater then cooks all the food. I did that a few times.”But that’s not the only thing that spawned a recent Kitchen Cabinet Sets for Sale remodel. The lack of countertop space was frustrating. Hanging cabinets obstructed views to the adjacent dining area, and a wall separating the space from the living room gave it a dark and isolated feel. They worked with architect Joel Fraley to take down the wall and some of the upper cabinets to open the kitchen to the other living areas. Then they stole space from an underused hallway linen closet to extend the Kitchen Cabinet Sets for Sale storage space, and added new cabinets in a cheery yellow and new appliances. The latter included a spiffy new built-in dishwasher that was one of the quietest models they could find. “You can hardly tell it’s running,” Ken says. "BEFORE: While parts of the kitchen had been somewhat redone over the years, most of it was original to the 1970s, such as the orange laminate countertops. The only prep space was on the peninsula between the kitchen and dining room, but with overhead cabinets, it made work frustrating. On the left you can see the dishwasher on wheels.

Removing the wall meant the Willetts had to take out two Kitchen Cabinet Sets for Sale large bookcases, so Fraley made built-ins below a walnut bar top to store the couple’s collection of classic and modern fiction books.
Removing the upper cabinets created the challenge of how to store spices and oils within reach of the stove without the Willetts’ having to bend down all the time. “It’s hard to find the right spice by bending over and just looking at the tops,” Ken says. Fraley came up with the idea Kitchen Cabinet Sets for Sale of adding a narrow pullout food pantry on both sides of the refrigerator.
The backsplash is a random mix of white, ash gray, golden orange, blue and green glass tiles.
