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.

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.
