2001 Best Kitchen Remodel Under $40K


This was the total remodel of a small 8 X 13 kitchen in a 46 year old 1,440 sq. ft. home. Challenges included, the restrictive size of the kitchen, insufficient lighting, non-existent ventilation and lack of storage space.

To overcome the size restrictions, the wall between the kitchen and living room was opened with an archway entrance accentuated by impressive classic columns. The original kitchen door was closed, allowing for extended cabinets and doubling the countertop space. A built-in was created for the microwave, which formerly sat on the countertop.

Recessed and under-cabinet lighting, as well as a larger window above the sink corrected the lighting problem and a new stainless steel hood vent provided more ventilation. Storage space was quadrupled with the addition of a Lazy Susan, bull extension roll out shelves in all cabinets, vertical tray dividers above the refrigerator and a trash compactor.

By design, the kitchen is now truly a part of the home. As a result, the home now has a more modern and appealing look.
