After careful consideration, Denise decides that Jennifer Hayes's plan best suits her needs and wants. The new kitchen and family room make a spectacular statement with stylish contemporary accents and an open floor plan that suits her lifestyle. Higher ceilings, new windows and new lighting go far in brightening up the once-dark space while the dark tiled floor has been replaced with light but durable bamboo.
