80's kitchen gets a makeover
Marci Kastner ArchitectMarch 29, 2013
"Before" photo does not adequately show just how "pink" this kitchen was. We opened up views by taking down a wall to half height, installed new cabinets, countertop & lighting, but otherwise stayed within the existing footprint.

Love it. The skylights, the cabinets and floor, and the counter (what is it?) and all the countertop space, Also the view from the dining room is pretty nice! Lights inside the skylights?

Thank you! The cabinets are just beech, with a natural stain. The counter is a granite called "Golden Lightning" with a leather finish. We're still trying to find suitable sconces for the skylights.

Beautiful! Did you remove the built in pantry and replace with that cabinets at the bottom of the "U" in the 2nd picture above? Or is that a different angle?

Is that kichen really ... pink? ... I made some colossally BAD decisions in the 80's, but painting my kitchen pink was not one of them.

Nicely done. Turned out great. The pantry is FAB!

Beautiful remodel but I liked the pink. In my dream house, the laundry room is pink.

Cabinets and counters look very nice...love the skylights! The only thing is some of the lights look a bit oddly placed, or is that just the angle of the pictures?
