Hide CaptionShow CaptionA new color palette unites the space while french doors let in natural lighting.
Before, the kitchen's mismatched countertops, missing hardware and cluttered ceiling added up to a jumbled, disorderly space. Now, the kitchen is much easier on the eyes from bottom to top. The new wall color, countertops, hardware and range hood coordinate beautifully and match the existing floor. A new, French door floods the room in natural light and lets homebuyers see the gorgeous backyard. Soffits are built to close off the space above the cabinets. This makes the cabinets appear taller, thus adding height to the room. A bar-height table and chairs also add stature. The ceiling is no longer overcrowded. The double-light fixture is moved to the dining room making the room feel more open and airy.

Cost breakdown:

countertops $416
French door and table $500
soffit and hood $198
window treatments $160
headboard and bedding $230
paint and accessories $494

Total: $1,998
