The Lombardis have $35,000 — $45,000 to spend on this renovation. The Spice Up My Kitchen team offers them two options, both of which include a new layout, upgraded cabinets and countertops and a space for Nicole's favorite find, her copper sink.
In the first option, designer Lauren Lake offers the Lombardis oak cabinets with a warm, honey finish topped with natural stone counters. The appliances would be integrated to match the cabinets; a beadboard backsplash and earth-toned ceramic floor would complete this cozy, comfortable look.
Option 2 also offers a new layout, with maple cabinets in a natural finish. Laminate counters, a tile backsplash and a faux wood floor leave a big chunk of the budget for high-end appliances.
The Lombardis choose Option 2 because it gives them the new layout and cabinets they need, and the high-end appliances they crave.
