Before & After: A Dark Kitchen Gets a Family-Friendly Makeover — Reader Kitchen Remodel

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!

Like range hood over island. Like back wall with micro, wall oven, pantry and refrigerator. Would work for our house design.

Kitchen | Sarah Richardson Design I so live this lady and her sidekick... She can do no wrong in my eyes. She inspires me with the way she uses color and pattern, how she uses something old and makes look new. Breathtaking....

This hood is installed nearly flush into your ceiling- great way to keep your rangetop in the island even if you don't want a bulky hood.

Kitchen Island Design Ideas

Smart kitchen island measurements: If your kitchen is less than 8 feet wide and 12 feet long, don't even think about an island. You need 36 inches between the island's perimeter and cabinetry. For two cooks, you'll want an island at least 4 feet long and a little more than 2 feet deep. | Photo: Mark Luthringer |

close to what I want in a kitchen backsplash - something that is there but really nothing over embellished, patterned or distracting
