Kitchen Before & After: From Washed-Out to Welcoming

Kitchen renovations increase the value of your home, no matter where you live. When you sit down at the drawing board it's easy to want to make drastic changes that feel opposite from what you are currently living with. This space makes modern updates that still allow it to stay light and bright, but add a touch of warmth as well.

Over at Beach Brights they've been busy in the kitchen. Although it functioned just fine before, they thought the space needed a little push to be a bit more inviting. Although most will say a renovation is brought to life by new cabinets, in this case, it was the floor that makes the space the most inviting.

Warm wood is now accented nicely by a glowing pendant light, new fixtures, rugs and Roman shades for the floor and more. The cabinets were kept white, but were changed out to something a little more modern. Their clean lines help keep this long and lean kitchen feel welcoming and not constricting.
