How to Reuse and Repurpose in a Modern Classic Kitchen Reno

Licensed contractor James Young helps a young couple turn their ugly, dated, 1980s kitchen into a modern classic space. The kitchen has weird oak cabinets with a button detail, fake butcher block countertops, a tattered faux parquet floor and a dropped ceiling. James helps the couple change the layout of the room by opening up a partition wall between the kitchen and eating area, and relocating the fridge. Since the cabinet boxes are in good shape, James saves money by refacing the cabinets and adding some extra cabinetry to fit the new layout. New molding and wood trim on the soffits adds a sophisticated detail the couple love. In need of a wine and coffee bar, James shows how to repurpose a 1980s armoire, and turn it into an eye-catching piece of kitchen furniture. They install a cost-effective DIY quartz countertop, along with a beautiful mother-of-pearl backsplash. On the floor, a fossilized bamboo floor with a clever metal trim completes the kitchen renovation, all for a budget of $20,000.
