We are probably being given this kitchen for free (it is installed in a nearby home and I am friends with the new owners who plan on renovating). I absolutely love the kitchen's sleek look but it also reminds me slightly of my childhood 80's-90's furniture. I am looking for suggestions for things to do to make make this kitchen look modern. In general, I like carrara marble, chrome, turquoise, and things that have a glamorous vintage flair. We live in a 60's raised ranch and most of our furniture is mid-century modern/modern/eclectic. The kitchen is not an open concept and there won't be room for the island. You may be wondering why I would try to salvage these cabinet - simply put - they are custom and everything in this home is extremely high end (much higher than my current budget). Any suggestions would be so greatly appreciated!!
