“i survived my kitchen reno!”

This reno marks a milestone: my first teareverything- out kitchen remodel. Sure, I’ve worked on many other people’s kitchens over the years, but redesigning my own? That was a totally different story! For my overhaul, I worked directly with my contractor (a friend of a friend) and made the design decisions myself, often asking HGTV Magazine staffers to weigh in: “What’s your take on these pendant lights? Is this zigzag tile crazy or cool?” Second opinions are super helpful, because kitchen renos are all about decisions: Each one you make dominoes into another decision. Turn the page to see the rundown of my reno. see more photos! Go to hgtv.com/saraskitchen for more scoop on my kitchen reno. WHAT I CHOSE AND WHY: • Marble-like quartz countertops (Silestone) because they’re strong and stainproof. • Shaker-style cabinets…

dear hgtv magazine,

It was refreshing to see the O’Meara family’s gray laminate counters in June’s “Our Super-Saver Kitchen,” since I feel like everyone has granite these days. When I renovated my home, I looked at granite options but ultimately went with laminate, and I’m a huge fan of the minimal maintenance it requires. —Leslie Gingery, Dwight, IL I just moved into an updated 1930s home and had no idea what to do with the original windows, which had been removed and stored in the shed. That is, until I was going through my old copies of HGTV Magazine and saw how Brittany and Andy York used antique windows as art in their bedroom [July/ August 2016’s “A Real Family with Fixer Upper Style”]. I liked the idea so much, I immediately did the same.…

keep it or toss it?

a white linen tablecloth with a red wine spill KEEP! “Act fast and chances are you can get the spot out,” says Nancy Bock, a senior vice president at the American Cleaning Institute. Dab with a no-fuzz cloth and cool water (put a trivet under the cloth first to protect the table). After guests leave, hold the stained area beneath a steady stream of cool water for a few minutes, then blot dry. Treat with a prewash stain remover (like Shout Advanced Gel), then wash as recommended on the fabric care label. Reapply stain remover and rewash if necessary. a lamp that flickers when it’s on KEEP! “Assuming there are no frayed wires, which can be a fire hazard, don’t give up on what could be a perfectly good lamp,” says Randy Howard, owner of…

how bad is it…

…to let your dog eat the cat’s food (and vice versa)? Having separate place settings is the way to go. “A pet sneaking a meal from the wrong bowl isn’t a food emergency that requires rushing to the vet, but don’t let it happen regularly,” says Jeff Werber, D.V.M., a veterinarian in Los Angeles. A brief lesson in pet cuisine: Cats naturally require more protein to thrive than dogs do, so cat chow has more of it—plus lots of vitamin A for healthy muscles and a shiny coat, since cats need more vitamin A than they are able to produce. Cat food also contains extra fat, for energy and a smooth-running system, and the amino acid taurine, for good eyesight, digestion, and heart health. Cats who fill up on dog food…
