1970s Remodeled Kitchen Has Scandinavian Look

PROBLEMS: The 1970s view kitchen was in a home built by a contractor for himself. Framing was more important than appearance and finish.  Dark oak cabinets, small orange tile countertops and Mexican pavers dominated the kitchen. Bronze appliances contributed to the dismal look, feel, and function. New homeowners needed an updated kitchen where they could cook and entertain, and enjoy the great view. CREATIVE SOLUTIONS: A structural wall was removed to open up the kitchen and adjacent family-eating area. New custom cherry cabinets were installed, and the homeowners chose low-maintenance Corian countertops. The remodeled Scandinavian-influenced kitchen features a telephone niche that hides the family’s calendar and notes when not in use. Other features are three built-in bins for dog food, a built-in table for four on the back of the angled peninsula, and a built-in banquette that will easily seat eight. The remodeled kitchen is just what the homeowners wanted!
