Easy Does It | What’s so bad about popcorn ceilings? And are kitchen islands really ideal? – Virginian

I realized I was heading for trouble when I became obsessed with the 1970s popcorn ceilings in our condo. I think that was because I had watched too many HGTV House Hunters episodes in which potential buyers walked into homes and screamed “Popcorn ceilings??? Deal breaker!”

“Our guests will be appalled when they see ours,” I told Bill, “let’s get rid of them.” He suggested they might also be appalled when they spied my collection of Pillsbury Doughboy memorabilia or the squadron of Kmart gnomes that guard our balcony. “That wouldn’t bother you, so why should our popcorn ceilings?” he asked.

The man had a point, especially since I’m not nearly so fond of my ceilings as I am of my Doughboys and $5 gnomes.

That got me to thinking about my reliance on the advice of all those interior design gurus on TV. I’m beginning to wonder if any of them live normal lives in normal houses or apartments.

Take the experts who lobby against kitchen cabinets with doors on them. Too common, they say. Lose the doors. Display your beautiful dishes, your French-import pots and pans.

You mean like my $25 thrift shop set of outdated Corelle or my “As Seen on TV” skillets? Thanks, but I think I’ll keep the doors.

While we’re on the topic of open cabinets, let’s take a look at the decorators’ favorite two-word phrase: open concept.

As I see it, that’s a floor plan based on the idea that the kitchen should be the heart of the home and open to every other living area. The basic ingredient? A 48-square-foot marble-topped island gathering spot at which Junior will do his homework while Mom prepares dinner and Pop restocks the obligatory wine fridge.

All of this happens within sight and hearing of Big Sis practicing her baton tosses in the family living area where Grandpa and Little Sis are locked in zapper-to-zapper combat over whether to watch the 247th episode of “Sponge Bob” or the evening news.

Oops, I almost forgot Grandma. She has her sewing machine set up on the 12-foot long, rarely used formal dining table and is busily stitching on a Pinterest-inspired stuffed kangaroo with quintuplets in its pouch.

What’s wrong with this picture? Just about everything. Doing physics homework at the kitchen counter while the rest of the family tosses, twirls, zaps, stitches, stocks, argues, cooks, slices, dices and chops is ridiculous. Make that impossible.

Oh, and about that marble-topped island in the middle of the kitchen, the one that comes with a $10,000-plus price tag? Has anybody ever stopped to think about how many extra steps are involved in walking around it to get from the fridge to the sink to the stove and back? Just asking.

I predict that it won’t be long before decorating gurus will be removing islands, adding cupboard doors, closing off kitchens and dispatching family rooms to the far reaches of the house.

Just as over the past 20 years they have changed their minds multiple times as to whether wallpaper is in or out, ceiling fans are tacky or great energy savers and whether you should paint walls in neutral colors or go for broke with a turquoise-burnt orange combo.

As for me, with or without decorator approval, I’ll live with the popcorn ceilings, bask in the breezes from my ceiling fans and love my collections of Doughboys and gnomes.

Polaris Home Design Partners With Armony Cucine

LOS ANGELES – Polaris Home Design, a kitchen store and showroom that serves the North Hollywood and Los Angeles areas, announced their new partnership with Italian company: Armony Cucine. The Italian brand is known throughout Europe for its functional kitchen designs, and now they are bringing their high-end European kitchens to Los Angeles for the first time, exclusively at Polaris.

“We are thrilled to be the first showroom in Los Angeles to be putting Armony kitchen cabinets on display,” said a company representative. “We share their love of simple design and high quality products that look great and function beautifully, and we know our customers are going to love Armony kitchens as much as we do. Like Polaris, the team at Armony believes the kitchen is the heart of the home – not just part of the interior – and that’s why we are certain that this is going to be a perfect match.”

At the Polaris Home Design showroom in Los Angeles, customers will be able to experience Armony Cucine kitchens in person, as well as explore a full catalog of all of their kitchens, kitchen cabinets and kitchen accessories. The Polaris sales team has received additional training and is familiar with all of these new products, so they will be able to answer all questions and help customers find the styles and solutions that meet their needs.
