Before and After: A Bold Kitchen Makeover

­Susan Smart and Art Westerinen bought an over 100-year-old Shingle-style home two years ago. Since the home was compromised by tiny, cramped rooms, the couple decided to gut the entire home, starting with the kitchen, which was tight quarters at 11 feet square.

Susan, who's a kitchen designer by trade, expanded the space by getting rid of an extra bathroom. She also moved the sink and dishwasher, took out upper cabinets and replaced them with open shelving, and mixed styles and surfaces to make this space both modern and eclectic. I love the change!

11 feet square means it's 11ft. x 11ft. so it would be 121 sq. ft.
