House Tour Follow up: Tyke and Jon's Topanga Canyon Casa

Over the summer, we brought you Tyke and Jon's Topanga Canyon Casa. One of the projects that was still in progress at that time, was their kitchen. Well, Tyke just sent me a pic of their newly finished kitchen and it's just as amazing as the rest of the house. See the result after the jump...

When Tyke and Jon first moved into their Topanga Canyon home, the kitchen was kind of dark, but the bottom cabinets were in good condition. However, as Tyke explains, they were "...just ugly." So, they switched out the counter with corian, repainted the bottom cabinets with the highest gloss they could find (from Farrow and Ball), and switched the floors with a solid black linoleum. They also switched out all the appliances (they got a lucky deal from floor models) and replaced the top cabinets with Ikea ones. The end result is fresh, bright, modern, and clean, just like the rest of their house.
