)))!'("#! 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 thereâ€™s adequate space. â€œTwenty years ago, few people had room for the open floor plan that an island requires,â€? Conley said. â€œNow we can remove walls and add kitchen space in a heartbeat.â€? Major reconstruction, of course, doesnâ€™t come cheap. But less dramatic renovations such as removing a raised bar top and going down to what designers call â€œkitchen heightâ€? (about 34Â˝ inches) not only makes a far more contemporary statement but fits more comfortably in most homeownersâ€™ budgets. â€œAnd it really pays off if you have resale in mind,â€? Susan Grabowski said. Whether itâ€™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 itâ€™s time for a change.
