One of my most favorite ways to breathe new life into kitchens is a simple swap of hardware and fixtures. That can include, knobs and pulls, lighting fixtures, and plumbing! In my sis' kitchen, they had just added new hardware to the cabinets (bonus!) so all we had to do was take a look at the rest of the fixtures in the space.
To turn the property into party central, an open-air poolhouse featuring a modern kitchen and ample space to lounge and play games. Bifold windows that separate the outdoor bar and cooking area can be drawn completely open, so damp kiddos can pad up for a snack and cold drink.
