All new white cabinets and black marble countertops bring a modern look to the kitchen, and two hanging globe light fixtures illuminate the breakfast bar. The new refrigerator is located where shelving once was and a new faucet with an apron sink was installed. The kitchen is surrounded by a beveled subway tile backsplash, and a wooden awning brings color to the kitchen and shades the window overlooking the side yard.
Vintage and antique items can be great alternatives to buying new. They are usually more affordable and definitely give a more unique look to your home. This little midcentury modern bar cart had seen better days when we found her, but with a little elbow grease and a fresh coat of paint, she looks brand new!
Modern White and Light Gray Galley Kitchen Makeover
This kitchen makeover included new white Shaker cabinets and sleek, glossy white countertops. The designer removed the drop ceiling to open up the space and added a light gray and white backsplash for a splash of muted color. New stainless steel appliances and a brown ceramic tile floor finish off the overall look.
The kitchen makeover in this early 1900s house required designers to get creative. A downdraft range under the window meant no range hood was necessary. To the left of the range, affordable Ikea cabinets were reconfigured to include an appliance garage.
In this sleek kitchen makeover, walls were knocked down to connect the kitchen, dining and living areas in an open plan layout. Pops of bright yellow add fun personality and color to the modern space.
