Before & After: A 1970s Mess of Mahogany Gets Lightened Up
When Sylva and her family moved into their new home in 2005, their 1970s kitchen had never been updated. Luckily, Sylva was able to see the potential the space had. (After all it is quite a spacious kitchen!)
It was time to get rid of the mahogany, and bring this dated kitchen into the 21st century. Take a look at how Sylva’s kitchen looks now.
First things first, all the brown is gone and the space looks so much brighter. Plus, it fits in with the rest of the home now. We love that Sylva kept the basic configuration of the kitchen with plenty of counter space. Of course this counter space is much more functional with the bar height stools.
In addition to replacing the cabinets, Sylva replaces the Formica countertops with granite slab counters and the white appliances with stainless steel ones for a much more modern look.
And finally — you can just make it out in this photo — Sylva added a hanging pot rack to display all her copper pots and pans. Gorgeous!
