Calling Tampa Kitchen owners
I'm close to completing design and selecting a GC but there is time for you to help me by sharing (here or via email) things specific to our metro area that helped/hindered your kitchen remodel. For example, availability and selection of countertops (I hope to find, and afford, a hard soapstone),or local fabricators for a vent hood? Where did you look at hardware, faucets, etc?
We are fortunate to have Costco, Ikea, and now the Container Store and several competitive custom cabinet makers. Of course we also have plenty shoddy and shady characters around, though I think I'll avoid them by using a GC with employees or choosing my own subcontractors.
Any help you can offer a "neighbor" will be greatly appreciated!
