When Brooklyn homeowner, Ursula bought her Bed-Stuy condo, she loved everything about it—except the dark, dreary and claustrophobic kitchen. The solution? She used Sweeten, a free service matching homeowners with screened general contractors, to find a contractor to renovate the space. The result? This bright space with glossy cabinets, a white modern backsplash, plus brass lighting fixtures.

Mixing Metals

We love the contrast of the brass light fixtures with the stainless steel appliances. Mixing metals is a trend that's here to stay.

Island Time

This workspace is functional and stylish thanks to the durable countertop and blue, easy-to-clean glossy cabinetry. A kitchen island is a great opportunity to bring color into a kitchen.
