You’ll want to makeover your own kitchen once you see these jaw-dropping before-and-after pictures.
Before: Old Cabinets
The counters and cabinets in this kitchen needed a chic update, but the vintage stove had too much charm and potential to get rid of.
After: Bright White
The homeowner kept the kitchen’s old Chambers stove and cabinets—now improved with new fronts and a coat of Benjamin Moore’s Patriotic White—but jettisoned the Formica counters and dark backsplash in favor of marble and white subway tiles.
Before: Basic Fixtures and Finishes
Basic fixtures and finishes and a poorly planned layout offered little in the way of style or function in this New York farmhouse.
After: Charming Farmhouse Kitchen
Switching out the stainless steel sink that came with the house for an apron-front porcelain one boosts the room’s charm. Brass bin pulls, butcher block countertops, and a copper backsplash behind the range add warmth to the new gray cabinets.
Before: Dated But Spacious
The kitchen in this California bungalow had some interesting decorative (and dated) touches.
After: Bright and Airy
A mellow gray-and-white palette sets a calm tone for the whole house. Natural elements—vintage wooden cutting boards, the Shaker-style barstools’ woven rush seats, and a faded antique wool runner—warm up the cool space.
