Before & After Resources Tales From The Set


All the usual suspects were present in a kitchen that hadn't seen change for thirty years: overstuffed open shelves, melamine countertops, dated wallpaper and a worn-out floor.


With a house full of kids and busy mom and dad, the practicalities of a well-planned space were the key to this kitchen Facelift. We moved the kitchen doorway over to make room for more cabinets. A slight adjustment of just a few feet can make all the difference between awkward or cramped and comfortable. The new opening is also more esthetically pleasing from the open living and dining space.

The look is Classic Country, and what better design to follow than the ever-practical Shaker style? The accent is on a mix of cabinetry that has been reinvented to add character as well as storage space. An apron front farmer's sink, tan tile countertops, bead board backsplash and wainscoting, and faux slate floor are expressive details that are beautiful reminders of rural living.

The beautiful new pre-finished wood floor, a couple of coats of caramel-coloured paint and fresh slipcovers on the furniture gives the living and dining areas both style and casual distinction. We built a privacy screen to mark off a corner for dad to work and relax.
