1970’s Kitchen Gets Jaw Dropping Overhaul
| Empty Nesters | 1970’s Kitchen Reimagined | Before & After
The feature highlights a Drury Design project where the homeowners were seeking a major renovation from their original 1970’s home. The couple had been putting it off because with 3 young children they didn’t see themselves taking the time to get the home they always wanted. The big project and main focus for this renovation was the kitchen however in the end, multiple rooms were reimagined to create a more up to date home for the recent empty nesters.
The home’s original owner had worked for Sears, so he had Sears cabinetry and now more than 30 years later the cabinets were barely holding together. They desired new custom cabinets, among other things in the kitchen alone. In addition to the kitchen, the owners renovated their family room fireplace, laundry room, and master bath. With added finishes of sophistication and function, the homeowners said, “now that we are empty-nesters, we were ready to add the finished that we really wanted and not worry about the kids damaging them — like wood floors, pendant lighting and so forth.”
