FIRST PLACE / LARGE BUDGET-FRIENDLY KITCHEN Walnut Welcome Designer Dvira Ovadia made this bud- get renovation a success by mixing and matching high- and low-cost finishes. To warm up the contemporary white cabinetry that dominates the space, Ovadia strategically added walnut accents, including the top drawer of the base cabinets and the refrigerator panels. A custom walnut hood became the room's focal point. To mitigate the cost of the walnut, the cabinet interiors are constructed from standard melamine. Ovadia splurged on natural marble with gray veining for the island but stuck with manufactured white Caesarstone countertops around the room's perimeter. Cooking appli- ances were prioritized, while other devices were found at clearance prices. The designer hid an unsightly bulkhead behind faux cabinet fronts and split the height of the walls with stacked upper cabinets beneath a contemporary crown. —A. H.
