Reader Emilie's kitchen was one of the entries in The Big Reveal 2014. While she didn't take home the grand prize, she is enjoying her new kitchen, which got a bright makeover that involved some rearranging of appliances and plenty of IKEA cabinets. Take a look at how it turned out; we love this transformation!

Emilie basically gutted her kitchen. It was time for a major update, and she carefully planned all the details to get her perfect space.

Moving the stove and the sink were definitely the most costly aspects of the remodel, but they made for a much more functional kitchen with more counter space.

Not only did Emilie brighten up with white cabinets and butcher block counter tops, but each piece was carefully mapped out including the pull out pantry that she included next to the refrigerator.

Emilie's best advice when undertaking a kitchen remodel:

Plan—and measure!—carefully ahead of time, but be open to changes when the project is underway. We considered many different layouts and even thought through what would go in each drawer and cabinet before beginning the project. As a result, we think we’ve made really good use of the space we have.
