A Clean And White Kitchen Makeover

Designed by Jillian Lare, this Ankeny renovation transformed a dark, cramped kitchen into a bright, light-filled space.

“We reworked the floor plan and created a concept for the kitchen that involved removing an existing pantry, adding three new windows, creating an island with seating, and building a new built-in breakfast nook for casual meals with [the clients’] two children,” Lare says of the project.

A professional range and built-in refrigerator are two of the high-end amenities that add function. And a variety of white tones play off the warm oak floors, making the space feel casual and airy.

This project was an entry to dsm’s inaugural Home Design Awards, announced March 9. See the winning projects at dsmhomedesignawards.com.
