    • Fuss Free

      "Simple and white" was the homeowners' makeover mantra for their outdated 1970s kitchen. Painting the existing cabinets and choosing white appliances made splurges, such as limestone countertops, fall within budget. To warm up the all-white kitchen, the homeowners incorporated natural elements such as oak floors, baskets, and a wood dining table.

    • Just Passing Through

      A pass-through opens up the once-dark kitchen and provides a view into the living room where the homeowners' sons like to play. The homeowners also gained a handy breakfast bar that eases the morning rush and allows guests to chat with the chef.

    • Center of Attention

      Surprisingly, one of the most cost-effective projects was building a large island rather than reworking the old one. The new island houses everything from cookbooks to silverware to a built-in microwave. A pair of clear glass pendants on dimmers provides all the lighting the homeowners craved -- mood-setting to task-functional.

    • On the Wall

      Replacing a wall of upper cabinets with open shelving adds character to the space and keeps it feeling light. Beaded board covers the wall behind three open shelves and wraps around the rest of the room, contrasting the unique ceramic tile backsplash. The subtle detail adds texture and a bit of cottage character to the all-white space.

    • Cabinet Conversion

      The original cabinets were reconfigured to accommodate a new apron-front sink. An open spot that once housed the trash compactor was fitted with shelves that store handy baskets of dish towels.

    • Beauty in the Details

      A large wooden dining table warms up the all-white space and looks right at home in front of a bank of windows. The large gold-framed mirror reflects the natural light streaming in and adds an element of elegance.
