Going from dark wood to a white cabinet is a very dramatic change.  This kitchen had a complete remodel that turned it from dark and outdated, to bright and modern.  The white shaker style cabinets with bead board end panels give the kitchen a clean look that the couple was going for.  We topped the cabinets with a gray Corian solid surface countertop.  The subway style tile backsplash is a great contrast with the simple white cabinets.  Some structural changes like changing the round archway into a square opening and changing the bi-fold laundry doors into a single shaker style door added to the goal of a crisp look.
