The major changes were that they raised the ceiling and took out a few existing walls to create a bigger space that the whole extended family can enjoy. Instead of a formal dining room area, they opted for a big island that is extremely practical, hoping that soon they’ll have all their children’s friends gathered around it to enjoy the space. They weren’t afraid to change the structure and you shouldn’t feel either: Sometimes it’s the best option to create an amazing and spacious kitchen space.

If you want a kitchen that will last for ages and that you will not grow tired of, don’t follow most trends that often come dated quickly. Instead, prefer:

  • Neutral colors;
  • Good quality materials;
  • Sleek lines;
  • Simple style;
  • And most importantly: professional work.

With these changes, your remodeled kitchen will always be an elegant space that will make you feel good every time you enter it, even years and years from now. This homeowner updated their basic kitchen and opted for neutral colors, wood flooring and simple lines, creating a space extremely gorgeous and timeless.

You can also make a big kitchen remodeling and design transformation on a budget. You just need some creativity! In this interesting kitchen rehab, the mismatched cabinets were transformed into open shelves and painted, bringing an open space that is very versatile and practical. An old tablecloth was used as a skirt for the farmhouse sink, the blinds were taken out to bring in more light, and and useful glass canisters are now used as storage on the open shelves, instead of the old upper cabinets. The tiny island is a salvaged machine-shop table combined with a butcher block that cost very little. Use your creativity and make your kitchen have a transformation too!

If the layout works, there’s no need to change the structure to have a transformation. In the pictures above, the kitchen space may feel little cramped for some people, but not for the owners. They felt it worked great and instead of changing it, they decided to leave it as it is and invest in appliances, paint, and open shelving. The painted cabinets in two tones brings a sophistication to the room, while the mix of light colors on the walls and backsplash bring light to the room and makes it feel bigger and more modern.
