James and Kristin have lived in their suburban home for six years. While it has good bones, a large lot and is in a good neighborhood, it is sadly stuck in the 1970's. Their thirty-year old kitchen has almost all of the original features including the harvest gold flooring, countertop and stove. Not only does the U-shape design make anyone in the kitchen feel secluded from everyone else in the eating area and family room but it also makes it seem small and dark. They are ready to spend $18,000 to take their kitchen out of its disco days and are hoping when the room is transformed it will translate into a great space and a greater home value.
