Turning a Dated Kitchen in a Suburban Ranch Home Into An Open Concept Space Anchored With An Island
James helps a family with two elementary-age kids turn their dated suburban ranch kitchen into an appealing open-concept space. The couple bought their house because of the great neighborhood and school district. And while they have been able to update the rest of the house, the kitchen remodel was so overwhelming, they didn't even know where to start. It is closed off from the living and dining rooms and has old appliances. The hood vent is comically oversized for the space and doesn't fit with their traditional design taste. The worst part, however, is all the laminate: laminate floor, countertops and even walls! James helps the couple open up their space by knocking down two walls and moving some of the appliances to create a workable space. James introduces some new products in the reno, including a wine-stained floor, vinyl-covered tiles that mimic expensive custom tile, a DIY vent hood and a plate rack the couple makes themselves. A massive kitchen island in a bright burst of color anchors the space. It's a massive and beautiful transformation that comes in with a budget of $50,000.
