Featuring: MaryAnn Chathanat

Bright white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, a glossy blue-green tiled backsplash and a charming dining area transform a dated kitchen. Steal senior design editor Cameron MacNeil’s tips as he outlines the rationale behind this year’s Ikea Kitchen Contest makeover. The Chathanat family from Markham, Ontario, had a few complaints about their builder-basic kitchen: stain-prone countertops, not enough seating, and insufficient lighting among them. Learn how Cameron addressed these issues and how to do the same in our own home.
