When reader Marina and her family moved into their home five years ago, she always knew she wanted to redo the kitchen. As you can see in the photo above, the kitchen was very dark, and even though the cabinets were painted a light color, they seemed heavy. Plus, as a mom of young children, Marina wanted to have the kitchen open to the family room so she could cook while still keeping an eye on her kids. Take a look a Marina's kitchen now — it took a turn for the lighter!

Warm and Welcoming Georgia Kitchen - The warmth of a custom, copper hood took center stage in creating a welcoming ambiance, and the cabinetry finish was equally important in creating the look. A mix of finishes were selected to impart a "loved and lived in" look. Dura Supreme's hand-detailed finishes include a weathered finish for the bar area and a "Heritage Paint" finish for the kitchen perimeter.
