Advice on putting live edge wood on a kitchen bar counter?

I'm remodeling my kitchen and have had an island built that is 2-level. The main counter is granite and the second 'bar' level for people to hang out at on bar stools is as yet undefined. I'm looking for some advice about what kind of surface I can put on the second level. I'm very interested in wood and was thinking 'live edge'. It would be about 24" x 72". Is this something best purchased from a supplier or is it a moderately DIY project from a tree cut by a tree service? Difficult to maintain? Easy enough to find? Suppliers north of Boston? Thanks!

New (old) house with the worst possible kitchen floor.

Help us figure out how to cover up or replace this god awful kitchen floor. We just purchased a farmhouse that was renovated in the mid 50s. The mudroom and kitchen have 9" asphalt tiles that are all coming up (so not level), and on top of that, the prior owner used these rooms as a kennel for his incontinent daschund. [more inside]

Tile Under Appliances in Kitchen?

The cabinets are already installed at floor level. Do we tile under the range and dishwasher or up to them? Also the dishwasher is already installed, but if we have to, we can take it out and tile under it. Opinions?

Good cheap kitchen counters and installer in Seattle?

PLEASE tell me where to buy and how to get installed decent laminate (or other relatively inexpensive) countertops in Seattle. Home Depot has robbed us several times over in the kitchen remodel we're doing, and I can't deal with them any longer. I need another place to purchase countertops, and an installer (bonus if they're the same). I also would like to have this done in the next week or two, as I'm due to deliver a baby in three weeks. Of course, HD said this would all be done weeks ago, and it's not. Cabinets are being installed today and tomorrow. Help!

Kitchen remodel help needed

I am doing a kitchen remodel and need to pick out cabinet hardware. I have looked at pulls from Ikea that cost $10/pair and look identical to ones from higher-end manufacturers that sell for $20-$40 each. That is a huge difference in price. I am wondering, could anyone tell me if it is worth the difference? What is the reason for the huge price difference? Do the ones from Ikea look terrble after a few years? I am spending a lot of money on this kitchen remodel and don't want to skimp on this if it makes a difference -- but I also don't want to throw away hundreds of dollars on hardware if the pulls from Ikea will be just as good.

Will remodeling or reducing the price move a condo quicker

I'm thinking about selling (or renting) my condo. My kitchen and bathrooms are out of date with formica counter tops, old looking appliances and ugly flooring. I know that other condos in my complex that are on the market have been updated with more contemporary looks, but they also look like they've been on the market for a while. What would cause the place to sell faster? Spending the money to update it or reducing the asking price by whatever amount I'd put into a remodel?

what can i use instead of cans?

We are designing a semi-modern, semi-classic kitchen remodel in our 1922 Craftsman / Mission Revival bungalow. I am very much opposed to using cans in the ceiling for light, although I realize I may be in the wrong; my wife insists that they are necessary, even though there is a bright multi-light unit from Rejuvenation Hardware over the dining nook and various period-accurate pendants for spot lights on the counters and some under-cabinet over-counter lighting.

Concrete counter-tops

I'm thinking of building my own kitchen counter-tops from concrete. I have some how-to books and have talked to a friend who is doing it as well, but thought I'd put the question out to AskMefi. What has been your experience? Any tips or tricks? Any special materials or sealers? Thanks!
