Usually, remodeling a kitchen from the '60s involves bringing the design into the new millennium as we are experiencing it currently. But homeowner Robert Picardo chose to update his kitchen in the image of the future popular in the middle of the last century.
Features that are not likely to have been part of the original '60s kitchen include recycled tabletops and cabinetry, low-VOC paint and mildew-resistant SafeTcork vinyl flooring containing recycled materials. The fridge is also half-size, hidden under a counter.
We find the little eating corner intended for Picardo's nine year-old son endearing (even though it's shown here with martinis on it), and the swing-out dining table a practical and space-saving touch.
