Sometimes the best way out of a bad kitchen is to salvage what you can and recycle the rest. Bronwyn Reice and Kenny Grono, who run an eco-oriented design/build firm out of their Victorian-era rowhouse in Philadelphia, loved the bare-bones kitchen's big windows and the breakfast room's built-in hutch but couldn't wait to connect the two spaces to make a single, more stylish, more functional space. Patterned cement floor tiles from Avente
create a colorful, hard-wearing backsplash.
