Reviving a Classic Bungalow Kitchen

A designer faces a tall order for a tall cook: keep bungalow kitchen's flavor while updating its utility.

Jim Kuhl calls this 1920s California bungalow home, and he loves to entertain and cook for family, including his five sisters and 10 nieces and nephews.

A stylish, modern update enhances the charm and function of this bungalow kitchen.

His current kitchen is no match for his stature (he's 6'4") or his culinary skill. Which interior designer is up to the challenge of transforming this space?

He chose Cari Blake because her plan includes some modern and traditional touches, such as wood flooring and an apron-front sink, while maintaining the kitchen's historic Craftsman flavor.

She created a super-sized kitchen that works for Jim's height and feels right with the rest of the home. She also whipped up a space in this grand old home where Jim can easily entertain.
