Before and After: A Customized Kitchen

A Florida Craftsman home suffered from a dated kitchen reno. Its faux wood cabinets, sad linoleum floors, and dropped ceiling seemed more institutional than inviting. This Old House recently showed readers how the home's owner, architect Manny Occhiogrosso, changed it for the better.

Here's how it looked prior to renovation.

To see its updated appearance,


Manny extended the room by 46 square feet, and moved around walls to open the space and make it more functional. The room sparkles with cherry cabinets, a beautiful ceramic tile backsplash, and a new raised ceiling. I love the feel of the new and improved kitchen, which seems to match the style and period of the rest of the home.
