Well, we are about to take the plunge. A complete remodel of the LR/KIT/DR. We want to make it all one large room. It's a double-wide mobile, ground set with a cinderblock/slab crawl space. We live on an acre with over 150 trees, hens,dogs, cats and us two! Now, our thoughts include the following non-traditional ideas. If anyone has done a remodel with "function" in mind, and NOT looks or a "keep up with the Jones'" tactic, please reply! Walk in pantry with refrigerator inside. (the refrig will be on a wall opposite the walk-in side separated by a doorway to the laundry room) Raised dishwasher so as not to have to bend down so low Compost well next to built-in cutting board (hidden compost bucket for easy access) Very few, if any, overhead cabinets. We think they are a waste of space. Formica countertops. Granite is way too expensive for the same function. Anything is better than what we have now! Same for triple-level island with cabinets. These mobile home particle board cabinets have lasted 8 years so "their" lowest grade is higher than our best. Tile floors Anyone care to add what you've done or added ideas??
