WWYD with this country golden oak 1989 kitchen?
We bought this house about 18 months ago with a 1989 golden oak kitchen complete with double arched cabinets, original 1989 Sub Zero fridge and KitchenAid dishwasher and original commercial Garland range that I am told is now a code violation and a fire hazard. The time has come to do something about it, but major issues with fixing the rest of this 1920s European villa style house have left little room for more than cosmetic changes and hopefully new appliances/countertops/backsplash. We had hoped to completely gut the kitchen and change the cabinets and layout but that is not going to happen in the foreseeable future. Would appreciate any and all suggestions for bringing this kitchen into THIS century! (Notes: the fireplace is faux (covers a radiator) and the door leads to a bathroom that some prior owner created out of a food pantry according to the original plans). Bathroom needs to stay for now -- we have met with architects and there is literally nowhere affordable to put it on the first floor.
