    I feel irrational hostility toward this new decor. I'm too sleepy to figure out why. I keep thinking that it looks like a barbecue joint gone upscale.

    I like it but it's too dark.

    If I were in that kitchen, I would flip an egg and write an angst ridden poem about it. Edgar Allen Poe would have blown his brains out in this environment.

    LOL
    yeah i'm not crazy about it either.
    they definitely have chair issues. i mean, at some point they chose those curly monstrosities in the 'before' pics, and then redid it and went with those dated ugly chairs in the 'after'. and the wood is too dark.
    i like the new layout, i like the stainless steel, i LOVE the stone wall, but the dark dark wood kind of kills it all.

    I like the layout before. It's just too choppy now.

    This re-do is a classic example of going too far when you have money to burn. The previous layout was fine--the cabinets and counters needed updating, that's all. Now it looks like the back end of a cave.

    LOL, I hear ya. It's just too dark. I hate very dark wood. I'd kill for a kitchen that roomy in any case, but I strongly prefer the old version.

    It looks like a corporate cafeteria.

    I LOVE the kitchen itself except for that extra island. Ruins the design and flow. My only nitpick would have been lighter floors/ceiling.

    That's it exactly, it looks like a corporate cafeteria. Not a home kitchen. Like the floor and the stonewall. The rest needs a match.
