Looking to update your aging kitchen? If your home was constructed in the 1950s—and many homes in the Northeast were—you’re not alone. Back then homeowners had a much different lifestyle than they do today. The kitchen was generally used exclusively for the utilitarian function of cooking the meals. Now, the kitchen truly is the heart of the home.
If your home was built back then, chances are your kitchen is closed off. Opening the space up is a wonderful way to pump new life into that heart. And, even if your home was built more recently, like in the 1980s or 1990s, your kitchen may be more spacious, but it could lack the sleek updates you crave for the kitchen of today.
