Joanna's recommendation was not simply to expand the kitchen, but to actually relocate it. The new kitchen is in a space that was previously a den. In the new layout, the old kitchen becomes the combined pantry and laundry room.
This remodeled home features a bright, white foyer with black front door and an attractive stairway with metal railings. The home office has built-in shelves and cabinetry. The home's gray transitional living room includes a fireplace and an interesting chandelier of interconnected glass globes. Nearby, the remodeled kitchen features a blue subway tile backsplash and an island with thick marble countertop.
Subway tiles in seafoam green instead of the usual white give the kitchen a color kick. Run to the ceiling, the smooth, glossy tiles also provide a textural changeup from all the wood. Bright white cabinetry with traditional recessed panels supplies plenty of neutral color to the fresh palette.
