What a dramatic transformation! This Royal Oak kitchen looks completely different just by removing two walls. Although the footprint and appliance placement is the same as before the renovation, by removing the walls and opting for white cabinets, the kitchen is now bright and inviting. The overhang for counter stools connects the kitchen to the dining and family room, which is perfect for entertaining while cooking. Moving the microwave above the range freed up more countertop space and adding panels to cover the sides of the range and refrigerator provide a more custom look.
