«Renovating the kitchen was my first major project in my first home,» admits Brandon Bourdganis, who purchased this 900-square-foot Michigan house three years ago. He loved the character of his new house and wanted to stay true to it while also incorporating his own modern and functional style. And though the kitchen the house came with was perfectly fine, Brandon wanted a kitchen he could be proud of. A space he would be happy to use every day. His first house (and his first renovation!) are an exceptional example of how to create a home you love.
