Presented with a Zen-inspired color wheel, Todd and Wendy select a soothing light teal for the wall color. The cool color makes the room look larger because it recedes. The white countertop is replaced with a dark gray-blue countertop, without the breakfast bar; the darker color makes the new wall color appear more saturated. The fireplace molding is replaced with large, sleek, smoky gray tiles to balance the gray countertops across the room. A single line of pale teal glass tiles accents the top part of the fireplace. A new dinette set provides a more comfortable place for family dining than the old breakfast bar. New cushioned storage benches, a modern armoire and an ottoman provide clever storage for the kids' toys to reinforce the clean, minimal Zen look.
