Modern, Sleek Kitchen

Watch the Design on a Dime trio resurface, refurbish and repaint for a sleek kitchen modernization.

After: Sleek Colors and Accents

The Solution
Interior designer Brice Cooper chooses a deep brownish red for the lower wall and a putty color for the upper wall, and design coordinator Kelly Edwards modernizes the chair railing with a faux finish. Ali Azhar builds a mobile storage unit with extra counter space, and the refrigerator is painted black to match the range.
