You don't always need a big space to make a big impact. This well-planned kitchen renovation involved only 250 additional square feet and a reconfiguration, but it's full of conveniences and appealing design details. Materials were selected for their beauty, practicality, and relationship to the rest of the house. Random-width heart-pine floors were selected because they match those on the home's original first floor. The speckled granite countertops with streaks of gray and neutral tones hide marks and are also easy to maintain. The wooden island has a distressed finish.
