Designer Shirry Dolgin embraced the existing layout, but completely transformed the look of the kitchen. Dark oak cabinets in a sleek, contemporary style are combined with the clean lines of the Caesarstone countertops, giving the tired kitchen a new modern feel.
The built-in banquette is removed, and in its place Dolgin installs extra cabinets for more storage. Now, a freestanding table with a chunky, contemporary vibe that matches the kitchen's style sits under a wavy glass chandelier.
The island features a waterfall quartz countertop and bar area with stools. Designed for a family and entertaining, the kitchen is open to the dining and living area, making it easy for the cook to be part of the conversation.
