This kitchen, which had been drastically damaged in a fire, is now an elegant, functional space in this contemporary home. To give more room to this space, Karen and Mina removed a wall, which brought this kitchen to the forefront of the design of the home.

To help make the space pop, a stainless steel dining table with teal accent chairs were brought in, tying the space together, creating an elegant, contemporary kitchen. As seen on HGTV's Good Bones.
