Make kitchen more efficient using existing space.
Increase cabinet storage.
Update appliances, add a dishwasher, and change range from electric to gas.
Create a look that is more 1950s retro than the actual 1950s kitchen that exists in the house.
Do it all with a $25,000 budget.
Move stove to a longer wall, creating more workspace around the stove while maintaining adequate landing space at the refrigerator.
Increase cabinet storage by using frameless cabinets, a full and a ˝ round lazy Susan in the base corners, and full round lazy Susan shelves in the upper corners.
Install a microwave-hood combination unit to free additional counterspace.
Install a new dishwasher to the left of the sink and a new self-cleaning gas range with sealed burners.
Add new recessed lighting in place of a single, two-tube fluorescent fixture.
Create a retro 1950s look with color and accents like polished chrome cabinet pulls and placement of 1950s memorabilia throughout.
Use removable colored cabinet door inserts that will enhance color scheme and 1950s feel.
Project won the local National Association of the Remodeling Industry’s 1999 Contractor of the Year award in the Under $30,000 category.
The project began with an initial budget estimate of just under $25,000. It grew to a final cost of $25,846 after the client chose recessed lighting instead of a ceiling fixture and upgraded some appliance selections.
