In just one week, this eat-in kitchen is reborn as a sleek and vibrant place to prep and serve food in style. To stay on budget, the room's footprint is kept as is, while the existing cabinets are sanded, primed and updated with high-gloss, cranberry-red paint.

Cranberry + Blue-Gray Palette in Transitional Kitchen

Red Eat-In Kitchen Space with Modern Furniture and New Windows
Previously, the eat-in portion of this kitchen contained and old, outdated breakfast nook with banquettes. The homeowners loved this unique addition to their space, but it was in desperate need of updating, so designers scaled back the walls to create a larger space for the nook, then they modernized it with a bright wall color, silver leather covering on the banquettes, a modern table and a red, modern chandelier to match the walls. To help light the space, designers added double hung windows to let in plenty of natural light, making the space, bright, warm and inviting.
Rachel wants the back wall of this kitchen, seen on Season 7 of HGTV's Design Star, to have visual impact, so the designers leave it free of cabinetry.

This lively, eclectic kitchen is brought to life through bright stripes of color, a red glass backsplash, stainless steel appliances and funky floral window treatments. The kitchen island serves as a breakfast bar with lucite barstools.
