Kitchen AfterBefore, the all-white kitchen offered plain cabinets and outdated countertops. Now, newly refurbished cabinets, resurfaced countertops and rediscovered architectural details make this room fit in with the home's grand Tudor style. Molding is added to the cabinets then they are painted soft brown and given new hardware. The scalloped detail over the sink is removed and the original pointed arch is restored.
The dining room (not shown) used to be dingy and uncoordinated. Now, it is more sophisticated and all the authentic features are prominently showcased. By removing the outside awnings, sunlight can gleam through the windows and make the newly-polished, antique chandeliers sparkle. New warm-beige walls (similiar to the living room) make the room’s authentic molding pop.
