We revisited these three kitchen remodeling projects from past shows to find out if the homeowners liked the choices they made, and what they would do differently if they could do their kitchen renovation over again:

  • Kitchen Workflow: We removed a center island to improve the workflow and replaced the white cabinets, plastic laminate countertops, and tile floor with dark stained wood cabinets, dark granite countertops, and hardwood flooring.
  • Kitchen Expansion: We removed walls to open up this kitchen up to the rest of the house, then replaced the dated cabinets, countertops, and floor with stained wood cabinets, light colored granite countertops, and a tile floor.
  • Kitchen Update: This kitchen kept the same basic layout and reused many of the existing cabinets with new granite countertops and hardwood flooring.
