)))!'("#! are things like trash-can pullouts, undermount sinks and deeper storage space.â€? Fluorescent lighting is out, both he and Conley agreed. But recessed cans, either halogen or LED, are very in. So are wood floors to replace linoleum, utility cabinets with pull-out drawers instead of the shutter doors and relatively shallow shelves of old-style pantries, as well as island counters if there’s adequate space. “Twenty years ago, few people had room for the open floor plan that an island requires,â€? Conley said. “Now we can remove walls and add kitchen space in a heartbeat.â€? Major reconstruction, of course, doesn’t come cheap. But less dramatic renovations such as removing a raised bar top and going down to what designers call “kitchen heightâ€? (about 34½ inches) not only makes a far more contemporary statement but fits more comfortably in most homeowners’ budgets. “And it really pays off if you have resale in mind,â€? Susan Grabowski said. Whether it’s traditional or contemporary, casual ecelectic or country farmouse, quick and affordable makeovers in the kitchen not only look beautiful but promise big returns when it’s time for a change.
