Expose HistoryDesigner: Angie Hranowsky
Size: 50 square feet
Before: The kitchen was unorganized, outdated, and badly lit! All of the charm in this 1910 room was covered up with drywall, laminate cabinets, and vinyl flooring.
The Transformation: Moving the fridge allowed the sink wall to be opened up and the original brick wall and window to be exposed. "I combined timeless materials such as marble and stainless steel, installed new cabinetry, and refinished the old herringbone floors," Angie says.
Small-Space Advice: "Don't think small! Aim for originality."
