For the owners of this home, a designer-contractor duo, a small, dated kitchen wasn't acceptable. By knocking down a wall, updating the amenities, and adding color, they created a space that feels open and airy.
The green pantry wall (far right) covers the spot where a back door stood. The concrete subfloor, exposed when vinyl was removed was cleaned and colored with an acid-based stain. Toekicks were built 1 inch higher than normal to allow for future installation of wood or tile.
