A few years ago, my wife and I moved into our dream home in a dream neighborhood. Everything was great except the kitchen, which we thought was serviceable until we realized that the cabinets were turning to particle board dust and the drop ceiling was collapsing. We lived with it as long as we could, but a year ago finally bit the bullet and hired a designer. We knew and shared what we wanted, but when his designs came back they were way off the mark, and honestly way outside our budget. At that point, we took matters into our own hands and hired a contractor and went to a number of kitchen and tile stores for bids.
Surprisingly, what we found was that Home Depot (honestly) had an amazing designer that really listened to us (patiently) and shared some very cool new products. I know this is going to sound like a HD commercial, but we loved the results. We bought our appliances at a high end store and the farm sink at Ferguson, but this ended up being our dream kitchen without having to go crazy with custom.... We've sent (skeptical) neighbors to HD since and they've yet to disappoint. It may just be our local design lady...who knows, but this just goes to show you that you don't have to go broke for an amazing space.

Originally, a G-shaped kitchen that basically divided my kitchen in half & only used 1/2 the space. I have totally gutted it, designed a new layout that would utilize the entire space. Created a lot more storage, along with more convenient functions, like pull out drawers, single basin sink & taller faucet. New floor, more lighting that I installed myself. I had a very small budget but I feel I got a "Bang For Your Bucks". And even though I've designed every inch of it and had a pretty good idea of how everything would look, the finished project actually turned out much more beautiful than I ever imagined. This has been a very rewarding experience.

Deserted stone cottage that we had watched for 25 years and it finally came on the market. When we bought it it had only been used as a weekend get away but it is our full time home. We renovated on a shoestring and our kitchen is our pride and joy, all for under 5K

Our kitchen started out with pale green walls and the cheapest stock oak cabinetry you can buy. We added moulding to the tops of the cabinets and painted them black. We also added a beadboard backsplash and dark chocolate laminate wood floors. There is still plenty of work to do & stainless steel appliances to buy but here's where we are as of today!

Our 1920 house had the original kitchen and an under-used addition, which some call a three season porch, adjacent to it. We began the renovation by replacing the old jalousies with energy efficient windows and door. To help blend the two rooms, our contractor removed as much of the shared wall as possible. The original plan was to take down the entire wall; however, our plan had to be revised when we discovered plumbing inside that wall. Our contractor helped us contain the cost by custom building more kitchen cabinets to match the existing ones. This also gave me lots of additional storage - who doesn't love that! Bead board was installed along the breakfast room wall and at the ends of the cabinets. We had a local artisan make the wrought iron towel bar/pot rack. Recessed lighting was installed in both rooms along with honed "Jerusalem Gold" limestone countertops and "Saltillo" terracotta tiles (set on the diagonal). We visually joined the two spaces by using the same materials and colors throughout. It was a challenge to put a "new" kitchen into an old home. We wanted it to look as if this renovated kitchen was original to the house. Having our contractor custom build more of the old style cabinets helped retain that look. My husband and I have traveled to Tuscany together and were inspired by the earthy colors and rustic textures of that landscape. We kept this in mind when we were making the design choices as we renovated this space. In conclusion, we are pleased with the result.

transitional kitchen style. i spent a lot of time pricing and revising plan to achieve a custom kitchen look without the price tag. because i love to cook but hate to clean, function was just as important as aesthetics. behind pocket door (left of ovens) is my pantry with custom looking cabinets and wood countertops (home depot unfinished cabinets w/ trim molding added and salvaged wood countertops) w/ built-in microwave and prep sink. (photos to come- need to paint cabs)
