"One of my favorite spaces is definitely the kitchen," Mina said. "And a great kitchen is what sells houses." Leaving the layout and appliances intact, Mina found creative ways to save money without skimping on style in her kitchen renovation. The result? A cozy, family-focused kitchen packed with value-adding personality. Mina and team turned the existing island into a standout, custom piece by adding furniture legs, a quartz countertop and painting it a rich, dark gray. She added an extra row of upper cabinets to not only give the kitchen a high-end look but also to provide more storage. Below, she installed the same durable EVP herringbone floors that she used in her master bathroom renovation — a choice that got a big thumbs up from judge, Mike Holmes. But Mina's favorite new kitchen feature? The brushed gold pot filler she added above the stove. From the brushed gold fixtures to the concrete farm sink to the panel-ready appliances, Mina's kitchen is full of stylish, distinctive features.
