Kitchen Makeover – Before & After

The beginning of 2016 started off with a bang in our house (literally), as we began renovations on our dated farmhouse kitchen. This was by far the biggest and most expensive project we’ve tackled in this house, and I carefully designed every single detail to give us a functional, spacious, family-friendly kitchen on a budget that we could afford.

We opened up the wall between our kitchen and living room, which instantly made the kitchen feel so much bigger, brighter, and more open. We replaced all the cabinets, flooring, countertops, and lighting, and we even tore out the old chimney behind one wall to make room for a large pantry cabinet. I’ve posted about each step of our renovations over the last few months (you can see them all here!), but today I thought it would be fun to end our incredible kitchen makeover journey with some great before and after photos, which REALLY give you an idea of how far this little kitchen has come! It still shocks me how big this transformation was!

Let’s take a trip down memory lane…

I am so happy we finally decided to tackle this project, and I’m equally as happy that the days of construction noise and dust are behind us! We have been enjoying our little farmhouse kitchen more than ever, and I wanted to say thank you guys for following along with this makeover!

    Love your renovation. One quick request, do you have a source for your interior doors?

  3. What a wonderful home. It is a nice house to begin with and neat how you modernized it too!!! I’m partial to how you made it appear bigger everywhere. Hmmm and you added yet took away cabinets!!! You must just want to pinch yourself!!!! It is neat to see it all at once as it makes better sense in my head how the layout is. Enjoy!!!!!

  4. Beautiful down to every last detail….Very nice fresh and welcoming! Love it

  5. It’s just beautiful! I LOVE everything!

    Looking at your kitchen redo. Wondering why there is now only one hot water radiator instead of three in the breakfast nook under the windows where your kitchen table is located.

    • Liz Fourez says:

      Great eye, Arlene! We decided to reduce the three heaters down to one during the renovation for a few reasons. One, it is visually more appealing to not have heaters along the entire wall. Two, it gave us a little extra space for a table and chairs in that nook. Three, I wanted to be able to hang curtains at least on the two outside windows without having to hem them up over the heaters. The new heater we installed under the center window is much more efficient than the old ones, so it has worked great for us so far!

  11. Wow! This looks amazing. I just love your style. I love the modern farmhouse look!
