Posting for a friend who is having trouble modernizing her kitchen. yes it is /was a remarkable kitchen with beautuful craftsmanship and quality wood and fittings, but it isn't too her or her families taste. This is their forever home, they have already been in the house for four years but are ready to put their own touch on this much used area. ideally they would like to replace the stove canopy with something modern like a stainless steel fan extractor straight up to the ceiling. Cupboard doors can stay as is but the feature turned wood and columns need to go. What would you do?
