Spicing Up a Suburban Kitchen

Living in the suburbs was the furthest thing from Tom and Danica's minds when they got married five years ago. But two kids later, they say the recent purchase of their 1997 suburban house with its big backyard and close proximity to great schools was the right choice. Now, they just need to make it their own. First on the agenda is ridding the house of its bland, cookie-cutter style kitchen. With the help of contractor James Young, they transform the tired space into an elegant, modern gathering place for their young family by adding a new peninsula, a mix of glass and metal countertops and a funky mosaic backsplash. In keeping with this young couple's limited budget, the cabinets get a partial makeover with new dark chocolate stain and slab style doors. Who knew suburban could look this urban?
