When it comes to home decor, it's common for the living and dining rooms to take precedence over the kitchen, with the former being social areas where everyone comes together. However, the kitchen does not lag far behind in sociability! This is the space where the family can cook together, and bond over a hearty meal or snack. Visitors, too, will will want to stick around in a beautifully decorated, welcoming kitchen! For this reason, we bring you 5 amazing kitchen renovations that will inspire and motivate you to redo your own cooking space with flair.
Using wood composites instead of pure wood may be a low-cost option, but over time these cheap substitutes begin to chip and peel, showing their true colours. A shabby look combined with a messy countertop isn’t the best way to create a welcoming atmosphere!
The new kitchen has seen a stunning turnaround, with warm wooden floors, sleek cabinets and a stylish kitchen island. And don’t miss the brilliant recessed lighting! Kudos to the interior architects at Lauren Creation.
Brown can be a lovely interior colour when used correctly. This room, however, is a disaster! Brown surfaces and brown tiles have been used lavishly without any thought given to beauty and design – this is a thoroughly miserable look.
What a relief after the brown fiasco! Here, white and subtle grey tones combine in a décor that is cool and elegant. The look is further enhanced by the long, stylish handles on the cabinets.
Big cities abound with small apartments, and small apartments have small kitchens. That’s no reason for them to look so terribly cramped, though!
We love this makeover! The warm wooden furniture lit by soft yellow lights, white cabinets and a leafy plant combine for naturally beautiful décor.
Renovation is underway but we can still see the mediocre flooring and shabby state of the walls.
The new kitchen is a picture of sophistication with its decorative cabinets, sleek marble countertop, vintage-style sink and warm parquet. The flowers on the window sill add the perfect finish to this classy, refined space.
This kitchen sports a decidedly ugly look, from the peculiar brown floor tiles to the shabby cabinets and black countertop. The clutter and poor lighting only make it look worse.
This minimalist makeover blows us away! There's a seamless harmony between the wooden surfaces, sleek white cabinets and chrome fixtures, while the unique kitchen island takes pride of place in the middle. Not to be missed are the floral arrangement and potted plant that add a touch of colour to the ensemble.
