Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe Haysons don't like anything about their outdated kitchen. The seventies-style cabinets with old-fashioned hardware overwhelm the style of the kitchen. The Formica countertops, vinyl flooring and tile backsplash also beg to be replaced. Despite the cheery yellow walls, the decor is dull and they want more earthy tones.
Homeowners Mike and Andrea Hayson have been remodeling their new home one room at a time but have been intimidated by the expense and effort involved in renovating the kitchen. Andrea admits she doesn't have a good sense of color or design. Ambitious student designer Mykel Terada presents a contemporary design plan with new counters, cabinets, laminate wood floors and a modern color palette. She also plans to rearrange the appliances and sink for better flow and functionality.
