Before and After: Country Kitchen

Before and After's. I can't seem to get enough of them. I really hope you guys enjoy them as much as I do, and hopefully they even inspire you to pursue these remodels for yourselves. Today's B&A was showcased on Design*Sponge at one time and it's classy. What used to be a country kitchen with green walls and light wood cabinets is transformed into a vibrant space.

The most first thing you might notice is the cabinet color. We've seen a lot of people switching to white to give a more modern look as well as promote lighting through the kitchen.

Looking a little closer, the walls are also lightened up a bit, but the kicker for me comes two ways: 1) Contrasting, incredible looking polished wood countertops which are 2) Provided a beautiful backsplash with yet another color and element introduced into the kitchen: small grey tile.

The colors here really set it off for me. Once I stop staring at the countertops and turn my head up a little, I spot that tile and I'm floored yet again. Really great work!

Two last details I'd like to point out. The lighting fixtures are so simple that they don't get in the way of the rest of the kitchen when you look at it. But when you finally do see them, you can't help but notice the perfect matching with the splash tile, along with their simplicity.

The other thing is just a matter of decor. I'm a fan of stripes, and I'm a fan of yellow, so that roller blind is calling out to me right now. It helps to add just a pinch of color in the mostly-neutral space.

Alright I'm done talking! Just let the pictures speak to you!
