See this kitchen? It had been essentially unchanged since the house was built in 1948. The cabinets and tile were in good shape, so when the time finally came for a remodel, the homeowners decided to keep them. The cabinets got a fresh coat of white paint and new hardware. The worn linoleum floor had to go, though–it was replaced with hardwood.
The biggest change in the room has to be the bright orange island they added, giving the kitchen some much-needed functionality and style.
The island has a cooktop stove and oven, and the stainless-steel countertop extends to accommodate bar stools underneath. Auto body paint gives it a high-gloss look. The kitchen still has vintage appeal with the original cabinets and tile, but the new island makes it clear they’re not living in the past.
Do you like how they mixed the old with the new? Or is it too much for you?
