Bright Kitchens: Going Toward the Light
A kitchen is reborn through a bright and spacious renovation

In this article, she describes the space, which is bright with natural light, courtesy of the larger windows added during the remodel, and the dominant white color scheme reflects that light. A massive island topped with a thick fir counter is the kitchen’s centerpiece and the family’s favorite gathering spot.
