Kitchen renovations: a time to spruce up your colour pallet, explore the new trends in tile, and get the extra cupboard space you’ve always dreamed of. It seems like everyone has a kitchen reno story, from misplaced cabinets that took a ferry to Guam to the colour-matching goddess that “will change the way you think of white.” With so much experience floating around on the web, we’ve scoured and sorted to create a helpful guide like no other. Without further ado, here is
