    I’m not getting an old world charm vibe from that kitchen.

      Usually I try to feel sympathetic toward an older kitchen, as not long ago I was in the position of trying to find renters for a unit with a late-1980s kitchen.
      This one makes it a little hard, though. Why don’t the top cabinets match the bottom cabinets?

      • I Dont Get It

        Yeah that’s why I decided to call it out. They could at least take a weekend and paint everything to match.

          And the vinyl flooring (or lineoleum?) looks like it’s early 1970s. Honestly, this kitchen makes my 1988 kitchen look pretty good in comparison.
          At least there are no vessel sinks in the house. ;)

        A minor issue–the major one is that it looks like a generic rental unit from no historic charm.
