Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 16, 2008
Whether it's a tiny galley floor plan, avocado-colored cabinets, or hulking 20-year-old appliances, homeowners have many reasons to redo their kitchens. While deciding to remodel is easy, envisioning new possibilities for an outdated or cramped kitchen presents a real challenge for most people.
To help homeowners see that even the nightmarish kitchen can become a design dream, Kitchens.com (http://www.kitchens.com) has launched the Before & After Portfolio, (http://www.kitchens.com/07-Featured-Kitchens/Before-and-After-Kitchens/default.asp) an online gallery of kitchen makeovers. Eye-catching photos create a full perspective of each kitchen remodel from start to finish. Several projects also feature an interactive zoom-and-pan tool, allowing users to take a close-up look at design and product details. The accompanying text explains how the designers solved the flaws of the original kitchens and created the final looks.
"Our goal with the Before & After Portfolio is to engage readers, provide them the information and tools necessary to explore the projects, and help them begin imagining ideas for their own kitchen remodels," says Kitchens.com writer Caitlin Grogan.
The Before & After section features a number of styles, including Tuscan, country, medieval, Victorian, traditional, Asian and contemporary, designed to appeal to a wide range of aesthetic tastes. More kitchen projects will be added throughout the year.
