Resources #7 - This Old House Online

TOC has been a standard for me for number of years. I like the show, the magazine and the web site. They have created a very high quality site, with a number of photo galleries that can provide ideas.



For example, the photo below from the TOC site shows a lot about a kitchen island. You can see the green color, the overhang required for the stools, and how black stools go with the green. All these are basically incorporated into our design.


I don't expect the photos on the site to give the exact ideas, but help us gain ideas. You can sit down for a few hours and grab the photos you like. I use the freeware program Screenhunter to capture and gather images.

You Remodel Me said...

I have to say, this was very informative, and I did garner a good number of ideas, but when I tried it out, I must admit I am far from being the most skillfull in remodelling. Minimally skillfull is more like it. Sadly, to get the wonderful kitchen I had in my head i had to resort to hitting the internet the best results in Kitchen Remodeling New York. I actuall don't know which will cost more, a contractor in the first place, or having them fix up my attempts.

The green colored tile from TOC is a very interesting choice. Can't say I would have gone in the same direction, but it really works for what they are trying to do. Thank you for sharing!
