While house hunting, Holly and Ryan nicknamed this 1974 abode, “The Depressing House” due to its dark, cave-like feel.  They bought it anyway.  Want to see this kitchen today?

Over the course of a year, they tore down the upper cabinets to open up the sight lines, ripped out three layers of linoleum and painted the cabinets a chic gray (Martha Stewart Zinc). They replaced the old vinyl countertops with marble floor tiles as a countertop surface, and chose corresponding subway tiles for the backsplash.  New appliances and light fixtures sealed the deal on this airy remodel.  

After all that work, Holly and Ryan put their home on the market and found a buyer in just two weeks.  We can’t wait to see what they do to their next home. 

Thank you Holly and Ryan!
