Kitchen #6 After

The striking pattern in the granite countertops and lightly stained cabinets are accented by painted walls, recessed lighting, and a new tile floor.

Kitchen #6 Before

Except for the appliances, this narrow galley kitchen hadn’t been updated in over 30 years.

Kitchen #5 After

The dark granite tops contrast nicely with the white kitchen cabinets. The center island was finished to match the antique furniture in the adjoining room.

Kitchen #5 Before

Built in the 1920s, this house underwent a complete renovation. During the process, the kitchen was opened up, and one of the windows removed.

Kitchen #4 After

In addition to new cabinets, appliances, and granite countertops; a hardwood floor was installed and the wall between the kitchen and playroom replaced with a bar.

Kitchen #4 Before

This austere white kitchen was isolated from the rest of the house, preventing the homeowners from keeping an eye on their children in the adjoining playroom.

Kitchen #3 After

It was replaced with the opulent look of darkly stained cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a new tile floor.

Kitchen #3 Before

This traditional kitchen with white cabinets and appliances, plastic laminate tops, and a checkerboard patterned floor was given a complete makeover.

Kitchen #2 After

Not only were the cabinets, appliances, and flooring replaced; but the wall between the kitchen and living room was removed to open up the space.

Kitchen #2 Before

This vintage kitchen still had the original 1970s cabinets and appliances.

Kitchen #1 After

The antiqued black cabinets contrast nicely with the white appliances and molded plastic laminate countertops in a simulated stone pattern.

Kitchen #1 Before

This kitchen was remodeled on a budget by the homeowners using the existing cabinets and replacing the doors, drawers, and countertops.

Remodeling these six kitchens resulted in a dramatic transformation in both their look and functionality. In some cases the room itself was enlarged by removing a wall while others simply reorganized the existing space.

    I have cabinets like kitchen #2. What do you think about taking the frame (not sure what the technical name is!) off the front of the cabinets, sanding it down and painting instead of replacing them? Thanks.
