Stylish HGTV Kitchen Makeover for Modern Look
With so much cabinetry in this large kitchen, a semicustom option proved most economical. To avoid a cookie-cutter look, however, the homeowners created a focal-point island with custom cabinets in a muted green hue; painted moldings give the cabinets an old-world look. Gutting a kitchen gives you the freedom to completely rethink the floor plan. This kitchen has an entirely new look and functionality thanks to a large peninsula that includes a sink, storage on one side, and a small desk area on the other. Rather than spending big dollars to eliminate an existing skylight, these homeowners decide to highlight it. They installed a same-size island directly below the skylight and used pendant lights to connect the two features.
