Remodeling your kitchen takes time, effort, and money. In some cases a lot of money. The best bet is to choose a mix of countertop materials, cabinetry, backsplash and wall covering options, and appliance brands to work together as a cohesive unit and to blend well within a set budget.

For others, however, spending on kitchen remodeling takes place with no expense spared. Many celebrities, who likely don’t even cook in these grandiose kitchens, have setups that would make a chef blush.

Without further ado, here are some kitchens from the celebrity set:

Piecing together all of the different necessary kitchen cooking tools can be a hassle. We don’t just mean tools. We also mean all the heavy duty appliances that go into every top-notch kitchen – the microwaves, the stovetops, the ovens, the sinks, etc. One item that always seems to go a bit overlooked, or at least saved until last is the range hood.

A range hood is that large installation above your stove top that stylishly whisks away the cooking exhaust that emits from every no-doubt gourmet meal you prepare. When thinking about getting one remember this one thing, they’re huge! And since they’re so huge they usually catch the eye quite readily, so make sure you get one that helps shape the room. Here are some of our favorite designs.

The classic chrome range. This is something you’ve probably seen before. It’s clean looking, fits with a variety of colors, and is probably on the less expensive side compared to some of these others.

Well, how did it go? Did your kitchen, bathroom, and living room pass the test? The countless judgmental eyes of friends and family didn’t bat even a single lash at your older than new home decorations and fixtures? You would be in the minority, my friend, if someone during the holidays didn’t say SOMETHING about the countertop material, cabinet color, rug color, fireplace color, kitchen tile choice, tub design, and any other element of your home that is ripe for evaluation.

Perhaps it could be some sort of resolution. A resolution to stop hoarding home fixtures of years past. If you feel a new countertop of cabinet is feasible, than it very well might be. It can also be the time to update things like lighting, the paint or wallpaper covering your walls – really give your home a television-style makeover. You have it in you.

Take a look at the options at hand for countertops:

Granite – Durable, elegant, comes in a variety of colors. Not porous, holds up to stains and heat. A very fashionable choice, and one that has been popular long before you knew what countertops were, and will be long after you’ve moved on.
