    no fucking fluorescent lighting ANYWHERE. It's heinous.

    Halogen all the way, baby.

    I would definitely ditch the dining room in favour of a larger, updated kitchen.

    IMO, if you have a tub in another bathroom I would go for a luxury shower in the master bath. My house only has one bathroom period, with no tub, just a shower. It's not even a very impressive shower, yet no potential buyer or tenant (we had it on the market for a while and now have it rented) ever mentioned it. Of course, they didn't buy the house either, and it took a while to get it rented (this time)... but I think if you do have another bathtub in the place then you should have absolutely no worries there. One bathtub plus a kickass shower in a separate bath? Who's going to scoff at that?

    Glass tiles for backsplashes are hot right now. We went with earth tones and earth tone granite which is what most are looking for. Stainless is huge b ut yes, very messy. Gas stoves and double ovens are popular. Large counter bar area is a plus. Pull out drawers in your seperate pantry area, big selling point. Lighting is REALLY important, crucial in all rooms.
    I understand having a designer but the expense is high, the contractor should have the ablility to give you many options and draw up the plans and make changes if nessesary...
    that is great advice!
