Monterey, California interior stylist Tamara Lee Beltran (https://designsbytamaralee.com/) has an eye for what looks good - and what could look good, given the right amount of TLC.

The only things it had going for it were a seaside location and a new coat of beige paint.

On HGTV's Brother Vs. Brother, Team Jonathan gave this kitchen a Brookfield™ under-mount double-equal sink, light gray countertops on the woodgrain cabinets, and an assortment of decorative plants. They minimized storage in the window sill to keep the room from looking cluttered.
