The laptop is the only thing in this kitchen from the 21st century. The homeowners agreed to let us completely renovate this space -- but we let you decide how we were going to do it. You voted on the new cabinets, countertops, layout and more. Browse through the slides to see what you picked.

Improved Layout

No square footage was added, but the space looks much bigger. This is because you voted to remove the peninsula and replace it with an island. This adds more counterspace, storage and provides better flow.

Rich and Classic Styling

When it came to cabinetry, you voted for maple cabinets with bead-board insets. They work perfect with your other choices -- the natural-stone countertops and the Old-World-pattern tin-tile backsplash.

Warm Walls and Floors

For the walls, you voted for a warm shade of green that lends nicely to the room's Tuscan feel. A durable vinyl in a slate-style pattern won the vote for the flooring.
