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 re-facing the cabinets and adding some extra cabinetry to fit the new layout. New molding and wood trim on the soffits add a sophisticated detail the couple loves. 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.
