Kitchen of the Week: A Balance of Modern and Country for a Family Home (Renovate your kitchen with Kitchen Expo!)

Becky Harris

A kitchen remodel expands to become a first-floor renovation — improving views, flow, storage and function.

This kitchen serves as the true hub of this busy family’s home. “As soon as we touched the kitchen, everything else got involved,” says interior designer Cynthia Soda. The new modern-country style of the kitchen spread to the dining room, hallway, entrances, mudroom, staircase and family room. The owners’ love of the warmth of reclaimed wood was a strong influence on the design, while Soda laid things out for the best possible functionality and views to the backyard.
