kitchen-before Before: This 1960s kitchen had its share of retro charm but lacked in function and modern-day flair. See the after picture.

Seven years ago, Terry found the house of his dreams: a ranch-style bungalow that hadn’t changed much since it was built in the 1960s. He particularly loved the kitchen, a swinging ’60s gem, complete with copper-colored appliances and a melamine table. Unfortunately, his wife Tracey wasn’t as keen on the place; she was hoping for something a bit more contemporary. But, because her hubby loved it, she made him a deal: They would buy the place and live with the kitchen for five years, at which time they would undertake a complete kitchen renovation.

Well, the five-year mark came and went, and the room’s awkward layout, tiny oven and antiquated fridge finally took their toll on Tracey. So, I called in my team and got set to bring this super-groovy kitchen into the current decade.
