Brent and Erica love their 80-year-old home in a historic part of Nashville, but their old kitchen was impossibly small and impractical. Their kitchen wish list reads: "More space (We have the smallest kitchen ever!); an open floor plan that works for family gatherings; new countertops and appliances since we both love to cook."
