Project A takes place in Johnston, IA. My mother in law is a big entertainer. She loves to throw parties and have people over. Her home is constantly abuzz with visitors and family members. The old kitchen was not a good fit for her. It was closed off and outdated.
The appliances were 15-25 years old. Linoleum floors. Formica countertops. The lighting was insufficient. The footprint of cabinetry and the dividing wall between the kitchen and great room made the space feel twice as small as it actually is.
Basically we removed the wall that divided the kitchen from the great room, added more functional interior cabinet fittings, and updated the materials and appliances.
