I recently completed a total renovation of a 710 square foot, one bedroom, one bath unit in a 50-year-old condominium high-rise building in Dallas, Texas. The kitchen was all original with appliances and finishes from the mid-sixties. A ten-foot section of wall that separated the kitchen from the living room was removed to create an open concept. The ceiling in the new kitchen was also raised up one-foot to provide a continuous line at the ceiling from the living space. The kitchen is six-feet wide and fifteen feet long. The design is contemporary with custom Maple cabinetry in a dark brown stain; stainless steel appliances; stainless under mount sink and brushed satin nickel door pulls; Cambria "Torquay" quartz countertops; 4"x12" glass subway tile backsplash; Can ceiling lighting and under counter LED lighting; New 12" x 24" polished porcelain tile flooring is used throughout the unit and helps not only to unify the spaces but also visually enlarges all of them. The bathroom tub was removed and replaced with a glass enclosed shower. A new floating vanity with glass vessel sink and chrome faucet was installed. A medicine/storage cabinet was installed the full width of the wall in an 18" deep plumbing cavity so that the doors are flush with the wall and do not take up any space in the small bathroom. Renovation was accomplished in three months.

We have been contemplating getting a new kitchen but do not feel the 6-7 grand we'd put into it would be worth it. I'll be done with nursing school in about 2.5 years and we plan to move around that time. So in order to make the space more enjoyable/tolerable I decided to take matters into my own hands!
My husband and I purchase a 1920 Craftsman home in 1992. That's where our reno(s) began...we added a 16x20 family room, replaced 90% of the windows, updated the electrical, plumbing and heating system. Took down a deck, added a patio, remodeled the 1st flr bath, raised the roof, added a full dormer to the back of the home. Added a full bath to the second floor and enlarged two of the three bedrooms. We also knocked down the wall between the kitchen and dining room and bumped out the kitchen for a complete remodel, all new cabinets flooring plumbing and granite counters.
