    • Using Bold Color

      Don't be afraid of color. In this remodeled kitchen, blue walls and a matching blue hutch are paired with solid-wood cabinets, moldings, and floors for an eye-catching look. A raised tempered glass bar at the island adds another layer of interest.

    • Simple Storage

      Clever storage revitalized this dull, inefficient kitchen. The owners maximized storage by adding cabinetry along every wall, including open shelves for display, and reserving the middle of the kitchen for an antique trestle table that doubles as an island.

      Custom Cabinetry

      A once-bare wall is made over with beautiful custom wood cabinets, stretching to the ceiling. Glass fronts and built-in plate racks make it easy to display collections and keep the new cabinets from dominating the space.

      Family-Friendly Kitchen

      Tearing down interior walls opened up this small kitchen. Where the interior walls once stood, the owners added new focal points, classic archways, to conceal support beams. A cooking alcove fills the space where the home's side entrance and porch once were, and a new 8 1/2-foot-long island maximizes work space.
