    Default A bold kitchen makeover

    ­Susan Smart and Art Westerinen bought an over 100-year-old Shingle-style home two years ago. Since the home was compromised by tiny, cramped rooms, the couple decided to gut the entire home, starting with the kitchen, which was tight quarters at 11 feet square.
    Here's how it looked before they started their renovation:



    Susan, who's a kitchen designer by trade, expanded the space by getting rid of an extra bathroom. She also moved the sink and dishwasher, took out upper cabinets and replaced them with open shelving, and mixed styles and surfaces to make this space both modern and eclectic.

    I like it well enough - I could live with it. It's certainly a huge improvement over the "before".

    Cute, but I don't think I could live with stainless steel countertops.

    What is so bold about this? Maybe I'm just not easily impressed, but I expected a lot more.

    this kind of kitchen is something i see a lot, but it's still nice. i like the open shelves over the sink, in place of cupboards.

    I like it, but I agree, those countertops would have to go!
