We love a good before-and-after story. These kitchen makeovers show the possibilities in any space, from simple swaps to full-on remodels.

Showcase Your Style with Smart Swaps

Sometimes a kitchen has great bones structurally but needs a refresh to bring your style to life. Swap out the features that don’t fit your design personality in favor of luxe materials and fixtures that speak to you. Replacing your kitchen countertops can revive a dated look and better suit your lifestyle. Blogger Megan Stokes replaced the granite countertops in her kitchen with stunning Swanbridge™. Adding bright white quartz countertops and brass lantern pendant lights made the space her own, and she loves the stain-resistant and scratch-resistant benefits of Cambria. See more of the kitchen renovation on her blog.

This space went from lifeless to lustrous with new Swanbridge countertops and glass lantern pendants.

Embrace Elegant Details

We’re still swooning over Holly Williams’ farmhouse fixer-upper. From floor to ceiling, every detail delivers in this rustic-chic kitchen makeover. Patterned roman shades and white shiplap keep the space inviting and light. Ella countertops add a luxe look, with beautiful veining to complement the soft-gray cabinets, and a new kitchen island makes the layout much more functional. Traditional farmhouse elements like the farmhouse sink and open shelving play with contemporary trends, including a painted pink floor, brass hardware, and vintage kilim rug. See the full farmhouse renovation on Country Living.

Open Up to the Possibilities

This before and after from Sellner Design shows the power of a full kitchen renovation to completely transform your space. This once dark and dated kitchen got a whole new look thanks to an open-concept layout with spacious kitchen island, gleaming Torquay countertops, stainless steel appliances, and charming pendant lights. Work with a trusted designer and builder to uncover the dream kitchen potential in your space.

Make a Small Space Feel Spacious

This small kitchen renovation from Anne Sage and Studio McGee proves that you don’t need to tear down a wall to make your kitchen feel larger. A muted palette, open shelving, and organic textures help this space feel airy and inviting. Hiding a stacked washer-dryer behind bleached-wood cabinetry streamlines the space and creates more breathing room. To make the most of a small space, choose hardworking materials that don’t skimp on beauty. Anne loved the subtle veining and marble look of her Ella Matte™ countertops, and the maintenance-free convenience—read more on her kitchen renovation blog.
