Here is our list of kitchen makeovers that are sure to give some inspiration for creating the kitchen of your dreams 🏡

Kitchen Glow-ups ✨

1. BEFORE Practical but not very stylish 🙁

To be honest this 'before' situation wasn't too bad however it did need a little brightening up. But just look at how changing the cabinets and wall tiles to white has made the space seem so much more crisp and bright whilst emphasising the natural light 🙌 Same layout, drastically different vibe!

2. BEFORE Stuck in the 80s? 90s? Who knows? 🤷‍♀️

This galley kitchen was very outdated, pretty dark and in desperate for a freshening up. The difference is just incredible, @flip_socal did an amazing job at making this worn out kitchen look so much bigger by transforming it into a fresh, clean and bright space!

AFTER A Modern Marvel! 😍

3. BEFORE Cramped and a little drab 👎

Tyler and Jessica aka @renovate108 say their goal is to turn their ordinary LA home into something extraordinary and they sure as heck are right on track! The beautiful wooden beams were actually salvaged lumber from the old kitchen 😮 You can even check out how they did it on their Instagram highlights as they have shared parts of the renovation process.

4. BEFORE A peach nightmare 😶 ..too harsh?

Maybe it is a little harsh but all good things come to those who wait..and renovate! This example shows that it's not just dark kitchens that need a revamp, sometimes colours just don't work well together. It's important therefore that when adding colour to consider the room as a whole.For instance this new lighter pink shade may be bold for some, but it works perfectly with the new white wall tiles and modern hardwood floor.
