2 walls came down opening up kitchen to dining and living rooms. Replaced cabinets with white shaker wood cabinets, Brazilian cherry counter-tops and Pergo Monson slate floor.
My first home and on a tight budget. What a difference a color change can make.
I moved in with my boyfriend in February and the kitchen was my least favorite part of the house. I knew we didnt have a ton of money to spend, so we made big changes with a fairly small budget. Other than appliances, we spent a total of $550. We are doing the cabinets next weekend with a great product to paint them, and that is costing an additional $250. I am very happy with the way its coming together. Please let me know your thoughts!

Before moving into this newly purchased home, the owners had an opportunity to remodel the kitchen. Built in 1990, this kitchen was compartmentalized and outdated. The island was too small and a bottleneck formed between the island and refrigerator. The owners wanted to open up the space to the living and dining areas.
Inspired by Mexican contemporary architecture, the kitchen was transformed. The tile backsplash, dark counters and small island were all removed. The florescent light box was swapped with cool pendants and recessed lighting. A new kitchen sink is now located under a new picture box window allowing views to the street. Overhead cabinets in a bright, fun hue and open wood shelving with accent lighting and decorative tile bring functionality to the space. The cooktop remains in the enlarged, asymmetrical island and now accommodates seating. Some appliances were updated and a new pantry with additional storage was constructed around the refrigerator. Finishing the look is new Brazilian Pecan hardwood flooring.
Now this family has an updated, contemporary kitchen that is open to the living spaces and can freely enjoy hosting friends and family.

We took our kitchen from the 80's to the present, all under budget. We recycled our appliances, worked with 90% of our existing floor plan and turned it into a family-friendly space.
