Before and After: A Kitchen Revision

This kitchen, which I spotted on This Old House, was cramped, uninspired, and outdated. The overhead shelving units proved to be more of a liability than a spacesaver, given the way they crowded the room.

To see what it looked like after a reno,


Inspiring, huh? This is definitely a case where bright, white cabinets and open shelving help to expand a small space and really make it vibrant (those yellow and blue accents help as well). To find out all of the details, along with more photos, check out the slideshow over at TOH.

Love it! This was an alternative look I was considering for our kitchen renovation. Still happy with my choice though.

This is beautiful, but I just really have a problem with open storage in a kitchen. Practically speaking, doesn't everything get greasy and dusty? There are just so many things in my kitchen cabinets that I don't use very often, but use enough that I can't get rid of them.

Wow. The floors and the walls look amazing together. The kitchen in my place needs the most work, but unfortunately it's a rental. I wish there were tips for making a rental livable!

I love kitchens. It's so weird. In every house I visit, I always find myself back in the kitchen. Lol. I've even been called out on it. - Anyways, love the make-over!

I used to see it when I was little, my godfather is a carpenter and would plant me in front of the TV to watch it. My boyfriend designs and builds some pretty amazing pieces in his spare time and re-introduced me to this show a few yrs back. I'm glad he TiVo's it because I interrupt him about a dozen times trying to retain the information. He ran into a few of the guys here in Boston at Logan and talked shop with them for a bit.

beautiful. Everything is so clean and reminds me of a beach house (i love the style of beach houses- everything is white and crisp). I wish my countertops were as uncluttered as the pictures above. >.<

Aimeeb, I've been a This Old House junkie since I was a little girl. My mom and I would watch The Victory Garden and This Old House on PBS on Sunday afternoons when I was little. Totally loved it!
