Transforming a worn, dated kitchen into one that's homey and modern was a rewarding experience for Paige Joslin and her husband, Tim, who live in Kennett, Missouri.

Not only did Paige get the kitchen of her dreams…she also wound up with an extra $300.00. Our judges' stamp of approval earned her kitchen the Grand Prize in the Remodeled Kitchen division of our Dream Kitchens Contest.

"Our kitchen, which we like to call a family room, is our pride and joy," Paige says. "So it was a thrill to hear that the Taste of Home contest judges liked it, too!"

What started as new cabinets for Paige's kitchen turned into a complete makeover. "I knew how I wanted my kitchen to look, but it was a real task conveying my ideas to the workers, including my husband, who did so much of the labor himself. He's a caster technician at a local steel mill," she notes.

The bigger task was ridding their kitchen of its dark cabinets, mismatched appliances and stained carpet…and creating a new efficient kitchen that was cozy yet roomy.
