Property Renovation - Before and After

I have recently provided design advice and renovation supervision on a major property renovation prior to it's listing at 3064 Martingale Dr. in Rancho Palos Verdes. The following is a description of the work performed:

Removed some overhead cabinets in the kitchen between the kitchen dining area and the kitchen which tended to make the kitchen feel cramped. Also refaced all cabinets and painted them white:
