Even a small kitchen has a lot of potential.  This family was looking to modernize their kitchen but still keep it simple.  The Hickory Natural cabinets, combined with the High-Definition Laminate countertops, really give this simple kitchen a great look. The flooring, while it appears to be ceramic tile, is actually sheet vinyl flooring.  This vinyl allows for the floor to have a little cushion, making it a little easier to stand on for an extended period of time, and requires no type of fastening to the sub floor.
