Here it is Before, in all it's 80's cabinet glory. (This was taken during a wall demo - they added a cut-out looking into the dining area.):
And here it is After. Big change, right?
They replaced the original red laminate counter tops with granite (Six Square is the brand and "Giallo Ornamental" is the finish), and the old laminate cabinets were replaced with pretty creamy off-white ones. The color is "Vanilla Latte Glaze" and they are also made by Six Square. They added an undermount sink and brushed nickel hardware. The backsplash is Pacific Sand Universal Mosaic tile.
They have plans to add a darker wood floor and a window valance in the future.
Here is a view of the other end of the kitchen, which is where the banquette (built by my step-dad) is located. I've posted about it before, here.
Thanks, Mom, for letting me (and my camera) invade your kitchen!
Hope you are all staying healthy this season. Do you have plans to transform any rooms in 2013?
