See Lindsay Bierman's 2007 kitchen makeover featuring all white cabinetry, marble countertops, and sleek hardware.
<p>I'm Lindsay Bierman, and I'm standing in the kitchen of my craftsman bungalow, which was built in 1918. When I renovated the space about six months ago, I didn't want it to be a period kitchen, or a craftsman kitchen, but I wanted it to be a timeless space. It felt, dated before. There was nothing wrong with it. It had granite counter tops, pickled floors and it really felt like 1986 every time I walked into it. So, what you see here is basically an all white scheme, which I think is always classic, always looks good, always looks clean. The main thing that we did was to replace the countertops. In order to get that all white look, I decided to go ahead and put in brand new marble counter tops, which cost between $80 and $100 a foot, a linear foot, and that's installed depending on where you live and who your supplier is. You'll see here on this drawer we have just this new stainless knob here which I installed on all of the cabinets. It was such an inexpensive way to really update the look. before, there were rounded metal handles which had a really, kind of a, just cheap dated feel to them, and these feel really good on the hand. When I chose the sink I really wanted something that was the size of a bathtub, but I was only limited to the width of these lower cabinets. So I chose the biggest one that I could find that would allow me to wash dishes and dry them on the left side. I installed a filtered water dispenser so I didn't have to wrestle with one of those plastic filters everyday in the refrigerator. And then, I chose the goose neck because it has the very powerful spray, but also a gentle trickle to it. And it's just an easy thing to do when you pull this down. I can fill a pasta pot on the counter top rinse down the whole sink, and it makes it just so much easier to cleanup. I hope you enjoyed the tour of my kitchen.</p>
