Learn how to refresh a small-space kitchen without a big-reno price tag. H&H style editor Michael Penney and his wife, Sara, gave up their downtown Toronto apartment for a house of their own in Oshawa, Ont. They wanted to transform the 90-year-old kitchen, complete with dated appliances and plastic tiles, into a fresh and functional space with French country charm. Instead of ripping out the entire kitchen at great cost, however, they only invested in Carrara marble counters, a white subway tile backsplash, a farmhouse faucet and new stainless steel appliances. Be inspired by the results!
