Before and After: Updating a '70s-Style Kitchen

Before and After: Updating a '70s-Style Kitchen

While there's much to love about living in Victorian homes, one thing that's often not a coveted feature is the multitude of renovations that succeeding generations of owners have added to the homes. The '70s-style kitchen renovation in this Boston Victorian definitely fits in that category. To see how it was fixed,

Bamboo floors lightened up the previously dark space, while customized cabinetry allowed for greater organization. Recessed lighting, along with cheery yellow pendant lamps, brightened the scene, and the custom tile work added some needed personality. A new mudroom area also made the space more functional and open. Quite the improvement, isn't it?

The renovation looks nice, but I must confess, I like a 70's style interior. It's retro and chic, in my opinion, especially a genuine 70's interior. JMHO.

That's beautiful! Good job. It looks like a completely different space. I really like how the mudroom isn't walled off; it really opens up the room.

I LOVE everything except the unusual amount of lights hanging from the ceiling. Maybe it's just the photo.
