The counter heights were at a special height as we are both tall, so the counter was perfect for working on for us. This is sometime to be considered if you have planning to keep your home for a long time or if are you remodeling the kitchen to increase the selling value. We also put carpet in the kitchen. The rest of the house had either hard wood or marble flooring, but the kitchen was to be soft under foot for the standing time is greater there than anywhere else in the house.
We had the contractors start the parade - looking at the layout of the kitchen and the cabinet construction, the overall construction of the house and the kitchen in particular. The bids came in - slowly at first and then in a deluge. The prices were astounding. This was in the early 1980's and the low bid was $12,000, and that was for a new sink, paint and "new cabinet facings" (new doors on the existing cabinets!) Now the house was not inexpensive, but these prices were out of sight! Times were much like today, many people out of work and contracts were few and far between.
There were so many things to be thought about and planned for during the reconstruction. We plunged head first into the project with little experience and our heads full of remodeling ideas, just an ideal of what we want the kitchen layout to be.
