Before and After: Spectacular Kitchen Revisions

I've featured the fabulous renovation work of Laughing Sun Renovations before, and for good reason: the company's work is impeccable.

In this latest project, Laughing Sun was hired to improve a home's kitchen and bathroom. The company moved around windows and doors, improved upon cabinetry, repainted the interior surfaces, and improved the space with a variety of trims. To see the improvement,


The new space is a modern take on a farmhouse kitchen, with its white custom cabinetry, lovely open shelving, oak floors, butcherblock countertops, and natural stonework. I also love how the stainless steel appliances and pendant lamp tone down the earthiness that would otherwise dominate the room.

It's generally agreed that improving the kitchen is one of the top ways to increase a home's value, especially if you're interested in selling your home. While the owners of this 1930s home could probably fetch a pretty penny for their improved kitchen space, I wouldn't sell this home if I were them. It's simply too lovely to give up!

I finally just went to the website, and now I get it! They knocked out a wall. It looks amazing in this photo, but the photos on the website, where the family has actual stuff on the shelves, look awful. So cluttered.

Seriously, i can't believe that's the same kitchen. I want one! I love the combo of white, blonde wood, and metal accents.

It doesn't look like there is adequate space to walk around the island.

I can see how they did it, but I still don't like it. It's just too dark for my taste. I love the floor though.

It doesn't look like the same space! I'm having a hard time matching the second photo to the first unless they knocked down a wall...
