Modern, Sleek Kitchen

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

  • The couple doesn't like the old-fashioned laminate texture or the handles on the cabinets, and the grapevine stenciling above the cabinets is too retro for their tastes.
  • Track lighting, display shelves and lots of modern accessories complete the kitchen modernization.
  • To build a mobile kitchen cart, Azhar starts with a bistro cabinet and attaches sturdy casters that have mounting plates and brakes so that they will be fixed in place when in use.
  • The couple had bought a sleek new stainless-steel and black range and microwave, but the refrigerator is white. Rather than replace it, Edwards paints it black.
  • Cooper modernizes the cabinet doors with a zebra wood faux finish and modern drawer pulls.
  • To add some flair to the plain white tile backsplash, Azhar uses half-round wood trim with a pewter faux finish to tie in with the stainless-steel appliances.
  • The chair rail in the dining area went from outdated to outstanding with a solid brown board behind a piece of lattice with the zebra faux finish.
