Help with updating a kitchen...
April 7, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We moved into this house three years ago. The kitchen is small and plagued by doors everywhere. The cabinets are in decent shape, oak and custom built, but a bit dirty. One of the prior owners was a carpenter and, even though the kitchen is small, he made great use of the space. That said, I feel the kitchen needs an update and I would like to have a bar, instead of a dine-in section of the kitchen. We have a nice dining room that we use. I was thinking of replacing the sliding glass door with a standard door with 12 windows and taking down the upper cabinets. This would allow the addition of the bar. Any other ideas for making this kitchen more contemporary?
